Welcome to my blog and my 30-day writing challenge.
Today’s challenge is going to be about my biggest regret.
So, let’s get right to it.
I thought about this subject for a long time. So then, I thought, everything is a learning lesson, so I can’t really say that I have regrets.
However, I do have one that hits home with me. One biggest regret that I wish I could redo is going to community college first before university.
Yes, this is the one thing I most regret. The only dumb reason I started university was that every friend that I knew was going to university. That was very dumb move on my part, and I reap the consequence, in a good and bad way.
If I started community college first:
- I would have saved more money – in my day, we would get rewarded with grants. This would’ve been easier to save money rather in the future.
- It would have been much safer to choose my major – at least, if I did not know my major, I would’ve still gotten an Associates degree.
- Meeting people would’ve had been easier – University was cool in a way because you would never run out of people you meet, but I prefer a small community and still meet people that way.
- Getting a job would’ve been easier – I had jobs both in community college and university. However, I wished I started with community college. I loved the environment there better than the university.
So for me, to you, if you’re a prospective college student, and you know your major, you have the means to pay your loans by the help of family, I would say go straight to university.
However, like me, you don’t know what to do with your life and the major you have chosen is still unclear to you, you like the small communities, you don’t want to pay loans, and you still want to get a degree, by all means, go to community college.
It’s safer going to community college than going to university and wasting hundreds and thousands of dollar switching majors just because of you still unsure of what you want to do in life.
College is a great experience, even if you attend university. But you went there for an education so you can be prepared for your future (though I feel that education nowadays is more taught on ideas of what your career is going to be like rather than the functionality and realism of the real world).
So, in my opinion, and what I’ve gone through, I highly suggest going to community college.
There you go!
