Well, I’m moving halfway across the country in less than two months for college and I’m super excited! I’ve gotten in contact with my soon to be roommate and she’s like my twin, I already love her to death. I’m moving so far away to get away from the bad influences I’ve been surrounding myself with and removing myself from the drama of a small town.
It sounds like a perfect plan, right? Here’s the catch, my youth pastor wants me to enroll in MN Teen Challenge. The thing about TC, it’s a minimum 13 month program. Now I’m meeting with some admissions people the day after tomorrow to talk about my options. Which are to either go to school in August as planned, or to be a part of the program and pretty much blow off school for at least a year and end up staying in Minnesota.
I honestly don’t know what to do. For those who don’t know what MNTC is, it’s pretty much rehab. I know I need to get treatment for my addictions, but at the same time, I need to start out with my new life. I was thinking about going to college for a semester to see if anything has changed, and if not then enroll in TC and continue to do online classes through my school, but doing more research into the program, we’re not allowed to be enrolled in school during the time we’re in treatment.
I know I need to get help, but I don’t want to ruin my future in the process, as I know if I take time off school, I just won’t finish or even start in general.

I don’t know what the status is of your decision but I just have to throw in my two cents. I went through a similar situation. I had a plan which was two years in community college and on to a university. Out in four or five years and start my life. But the we housed a student from my church who was in this program called masters commission. It’s a nine month program… That I’ll be starting in two weeks. It did mess up my plans but what I’ll get out of it is so much more important. Having a good foundation to build the rest of your life is something that you should think about. The way I finally knew that my life plan was gonna be postponed was through prayer. I know it can be difficult to have something that you have been looking forward to change but through prayer God will reveal His will to you. And in the end that’s what’s truly important.
