Going to College
Going to College

I was so very exciting when I first get the letter. The letter was send into our mail. Then when I open the mail I realize that I was accepted in college. Then I told that was accepted in college because she feels so very exciting. I was so very nervous because shaken I don't know why. When I was nervous I thought to myself that this is my dream. And when I thought about going back in college I had to make big decisions in my entire life and everything was changing because I just that I have a new life right then. It feels different because of my daily schedule is changing. It makes my day different because I have classes in the someday. On Monday and Wednesday I have reading and writing part two and math part two also. On Tuesday, and Thursday I have a Personal development, and Careers. The new schedule makes me little nervous because it was different. My homework is easy because I am done with my homework in every class so that I have no homework every night. To me in every class they gave me so much homework that I can't organize my homework or in every subjects. Sometimes my homework gets very difficult. Then when I get some help from my teachers, and my mother sometimes. And sometimes I feel very stress because my homework makes me feel tired. I met a great guy, and he was very sweet, very romantic, and that is why I have found him as a friend until we decide to go out right then, and there. And now I feel so very safe and he shows me how he loves me. To me in his eyes I know he is always being there in my arms where he belongs. When I am with him he makes all my dreams come true. We decided to go out after classes we decided to walk through the park and we decided to hold our hands right then, and there. Sometimes he makes me laugh, and makes me smile every day. It makes me feel so very safe and very loved by him when I am in his loving arms. The conclusion is going back to college it was a big success for my life and for me also.
