We’re all nearing an end to free education, almost into adulthood. We hate every waking second of it, time is flying and passing you by.
Ideas of college, SAT and ACT, FAFSA, and scholarships are being shoved into our heads. All this worry and stress we just want to quit; just run away from all of the “Deceit”.
Live life how you want too. One day you will be sixty years old, your parents will be gone and you will be siting back thinking “Did I do what I wanted to do?”.
We all get the first 22 years of our life being youthful. Savor the time you get. There isn’t much of it to be enjoyed.
When I walk in the halls of our school, people are so pesimistic about nearly everything. I hear time and time again, like an echo…“Life is out to get me.” Life is not out to get you, take charge of your life, get up and make something of yourself.
So you want to be an environmentalist, an author, a plumber, a teacher, an archaeologist, a neurosurgeon, or even a movie star… do the work and get it done.
Do not second best your life to make your parents or grandparents happy. One day they will be gone, your happiness is very important. They will come to know that what you decide is best for you. They give you a plan so you would not fail, in fear and faith; trying to help. Accept their care for you, but make the decision of your deepest desire, within reason, for YOU. Nothing unlawful of course. The keys of ivory are playing a sweet melody, begging you to fight for your dreams. Is life not about “Going big or going home.” “Put up or shut up”.
“How many years have passed me by, Since I’ve stopped to take a look at all the changes in my life? So many friends have come and gone. But all those summer nights still burn inside my lungs.”

How your life starts is something you should be selfish with; perfection is a frail disguise by the media. Doing what someone else wants you to do, that is living your life through their missed opportunites or broken dreams,… it is your turn to expierence, your life, it is YOUR time. Is that what you would want? To live in the same footsteps of another?
The pressure is getting stronger, the pain is lasting longer. Surprise after suprise, no antidote to the demise. Seems all is hopeless. Do not forget the traditional American value, with hard work comes success. Determination pays. So NEVER give in.
