First day I came to my school, I walk through the clear shaped, black window of Indiana State University. I felt very welcomed. I was preparing for an appearance to walk into my dorm room. I enter the build with a cheesy, bright white smile that made a representative glanced back, as I walk smoothly up the stair. As I passes several rooms, I get closer to minds, making my smile even wider because of the excitement of living the college life I desire.

I was frankly urged to attend that party, and when I did—I got arrested for drinking underage. I was sent to a police station behind black and gray cell bars with the accommodation of a cold white toilet on the wall. I insisted calling my Mother or Father to bomb me out.

Since I am independent college student, I had to provide for myself such car note, cell phone, clothes, hygiene products that was needed on a daily basis, etc. I had to take initiative to supply for myself.
As a result to my problem, I learned to become more self-reliant individual, and develop the ability to make wise decision independently. I realized taking care of myself allowed me to become more advanced for the “adult world” and effective adult.
