Unfortunately, my dream to go to the peace corp is now on hold.
I had to go to college.
I know this is seemingly the right thing to do and I always wanted to go to college. But there had been a part of me that rebelled against this idea. It’s not some teenage anger that needs to beat my fists against the norms of society. It is that I never thought college would be able to do anything for me but give me a graduate certificate, then I’d end up in a job someplace with the tag “I’m educated”. Instead of taking a gap year, which everyone expected me to do, I went college immediately after summer vacation. I knew that if I didn’t go to college immediately, I would never do it.
If I had my way, I would live my life all over the place globe-trotting. Doing small things, simple things. So right now, going to the peace corp is put on hold but hopefully I’ll be able to get through college, at least a year of it, then make my decision if I want to continue it or do something else.
