Time Flies, So Be Ready Essay

1041 words - 5 pages

For years I have been waiting to experience the joy of Senior year and now it is here. To think that it will all be over in two and a half months is incredible. Soon enough I will be off to college and so, I want to start getting everything ready for when I leave. Everything is moving so fast and I hope to meet some of the people that will also be attending Wentworth next fall before I leave. First semester of college is going to be a practice round and then second semester is when scholarships will validate and start working. I hope to hear back about the scholarships that I applied for, so that I can know how much I will need to get for financial aid. You never know what is going to ...view middle of the document...

With this group I hope that I can meet some amazing people and create some strong friendships that will last me through my years at Wentworth.
College tuition can be expensive depending on where you go and unfortunately for me I will be attending a school that is quite expensive. With tuition at forty six thousand a year, I will need as much financial aid as possible. Wentworth gave me an eleven thousand dollar scholarship for every year which was awesome, but I will need more than that, so I applied for scholarships. This quarter I hope to hear back about them to see how much I will have covering my tuition. Since I am coming from a single mother, lower income family I need the money.

I am not sure when I will find out about whether or not I will be granted the scholarships, but I hope to hear about it soon.
Now that I have began this essay on what my goals are for this quarter, I have realized that not everything is going to be planned the way I want it to be. One moment I thought I wanted to attend college to further my education and the next I realize I am not ready for that yet. At the age of eighteen I am expected to know exactly what I want to do the rest of my life and I honestly have no clue. For starters I believe; for now, that I want to join the U.S. Military. I would never have thought that I would be considering the military and here I am. I am almost 100% sure that I will be enlisting once I graduate from high school. One of my goals is that I want to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces. Another goal is that I hope to pass the physical...
