I have 2 days left of being a sophomore. Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday I am officially a junior. But the thing about that that is scary is that my teachers are pushing college, specifically my history teacher. He says that next year will go by quickly, and we have to start looking at colleges. But the thing is that I have been since I was in 8th grade. All the ones I want to go to are “too far away” even though 1 is 5 hours away near Harrisburg and in state, and but I’ve had my heart set on Liberty University in Lynchburg. I guess I’m just not sure what to do. Like, do I try to get my parents to let me go to Liberty, or listen to them and go an hour away to Grove City, West Minster, Slippery Rock, or Point Park, even though I can get into better colleges than those? Like Liberty. My dreams are so close to being true- doing what I’m meant to do. Everything is becoming very real, very fast.
