Better Off in the End

Posted on April 21, 2008 @ 6:02 am

My best friend went to college straight out of high school.  I on the other hand, decided to work for a year before going back to school.  I figured, that this would help to pay my tuition.  Since my friend was a year ahead of me, she said that I could buy the dissertations that she had written the year before.

I decided going into school that I was not going to suckered into buying a thesis instead of writing it..  I told her this and she laughed at me knowing that I had no idea how hard this year was going to be and how little time I would have to sit and work on essays for every single class that I took.

In a way, she was right.  I did have no idea how hard it would be, but I was still determined to do all of my own writing including the research proposal that I will have to do.  In the end, she ended up with far better grades than I, but I ended up being smarter.  I learned more and feel that I am a better person because of it.
