Devry – Term Four

I have three words to summarize this term: This term sucked!

At first, this term started off kinda easy. I had all these high hopes. I thought I would get a lot more done than I actually did.

Gone are the days of scholarship contests, essay contests, and free time. The start of this term gave me a bunch of free time. I wrote a lot of poems and obligated myself to things I couldn’t handle. A lot seems to have changed in four months. It seems like people I have talked to forever are slowly dissipating in my life. Girls I thought I probably had a chance with are going about their seperate ways. I guess you only can delay the inevitable. My bro is into it with my mom. I serisously considered joining the army. My dad got laid off and found a new job. I went to a Blink concert!

All this seemed to weigh in on the end. The teachers I thought I would like, I hated. I found new crushes. I’m finally learning the true meaning of, “All the good ones are taken.”

Work sucks, school sucks. All of this torment is for something, right? If only I can remember what I came here for. Money, a future, to piss off my dad perhaps? I think I know. I came here because I wanted to escape the certainty that was about to become my future. Living in the small town and bagging groceries for a living.

However I’m not like you guys, I’m not like you (Sorry, Blink 182 – Aliens Exist).

So on to Term 5. And guess what?! I’m now a college junior! And I do not regret even for a second coming to this school for college. As much as I say I hate it, I love it twice as much. I know so much more now than I did before.
