Seniors struggle to make college decisions

Allie Schneider, News editor

  One of the hardest parts of growing up is having to make choices that may not be what you truly want.

   I know me, and many other seniors are having to make some of those decisions when it comes to college choices.

   The stress of picking the place of where we will be getting the education for our future career is a lot to put on 17-19-year-olds. That stress adds on even more in deciding if college is even for you.

   I hate that I am having to pick what I’m going to be for the rest of my life.

   I am someone with many passions, and not really one I feel I am substantially good at.

   As a child, I thought I wanted to be a scientist but as I grew older, I slowly had that spark for science ruined by pressure to have to be better than a male-counterpart and, being talked down to by teachers throughout my schooling..

   With my current plan, I think I would enjoy music education but will the same thing happen with my love for science? Will the drive I have for it now fade out of existence?

   While I doubt if that my current passion will be crushed by Mr. Bostic, I wonder about my future college professors.  Hopefully, they will be patient and kind.

   From talking with other seniors many feel that same stress, but we simply have to keep pushing through it.

   We all will continue to complete our homework, write scholarships, and finish applications while the weight of our choices sit heavily on our chests.

     Only time will tell if the choices we make now are truly what were best for us.
