817 words - 3 pages

Have you ever stepped back to look at your life and think “what has happened to my dreams,” and wish you could go back in the past to fulfill your goals.

Again she wanted me to come with to school with her in New Richmond in which I declined. I was going to go to school for a degree in a program of which I knew hardly anything about.
My first year going to WITC in Rice Lake my classes were mostly all the generals that I was not able to complete while I was in Youth Options. Youth Options is where a student still in high school goes...
