I am in my last semester of college, and ironically it’s not bittersweet like most people’s last semester of college. I’ve been in college since the fall of 2007. I started out at North Shore Community College, and then in the fall of 2011 I transferred to Salem State. I didn’t even get my associates degree from NSCC like I had wanted, it would have required more math classes than I wanted to take. Let me tell you, I’m not really a fan of math, I like basic everyday useful math, but when a, b, c and x, y, z get involved forget it. For what I want to do for my career, I don’t need math with a, b, c and x, y, z. I want to be a journalist, a sports journalist to be exact. My dream would be to write for the Red Sox in some capacity, like blog for WEEI, NESN.
But back on topic with my last semester of college, I can’t wait to graduate and be done. It’s been long enough and I’m kind of tired of being in school. And one thing that I’m doing differently than most people who go to college, I’m not going to school to socialize and make friends. It bothers people when I say that I’m not going to school to socialize and make friends, I’m going to school to further my education, and better myself. I do talk to people in my classes, but once I’m done with my classes I go home and don’t hang around campus that much. It’s what’s best for me. It’s been a long road, but on May 17, 2014 my college education comes to an end, and it hasn’t been easy, but I can say that I did it.
