Studying abroad. That would be cool, but I don’t have that kind of time or money. This is what most of you reading this are saying, right? Well if you’d like to sit through this little 627-word presentation, I’d like to try to convince you otherwise.
When you get into your car in the morning, you know the destination you’re driving to, right? If there happens to be a road block as you’re driving, you will need to take a detour But since you know your destination, you’ll be able to get where you’re going even if you have to go a different way. Going to college is very much like driving your car. Some of you know the eventual destination you want to get to and you have a path you can take to get to where you want to go. But just like driving without a destination, going to college without a goal means it will take you longer to go where you aren’t sure you wanted to go.
