Graduated High School what do I do now? After I graduated High School I was like a lost puppy. I was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. It also did not help that I had an attitude of I am 18 years old and you canít tell me what to do phase. My Mom and I argued over my poor decision making about my life. I didnít want to take the college route, but I knew that was what she wanted. My first semester at college did not go as planned. I came to the conclusion that it was not for me. I decided to quit and get a full time job and travel for a bit with my best friend, and partying and having a good time. Months of this went on and I was still lost with my life and I didnít have a care in the world.

Huge an epiphany: Two years went by, and I was already getting fed up with being a waitress. I was still unsure of what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew that this was not it. I wanted more out of life. I knew my Mom was right and partying was going to get me nowhere in life.

Going back to college: My Mom and I had a long heart to heart conversation about my life. She was willing to put it all in the past and still pay for my education if I still decided to purse it. I was exhausted of working at a dead end job, and I was going to take it seriously. My goal was to get my Associates Degree and transfer to a University. School was successful for me and I was determined to graduate.

Moving: I was just a couple of classes shy of receiving my associates when I moved across country with my boyfriend. As we drove across country I was nervous and anxious, it was bitter sweet. I left my friends, family and the only place I ever lived behind. It was a major transformation for me, but I coped with it the support of my family. It wasnít long before I enrolled at UWC and started college again. Now I am on the path to having a degree and getting my life in order.
