I AM BOSTON BOUND
Today I decided on Wheelock College.
It is funny to see how i got here. I'm still not quite sure. I told my family years ago there was NO way i'd go to school in Boston or ANY city. I thought i had a perfect idea in mind. A southern campus, brick buildings, green grass campus, white pillars, brick or stone sidewalks. A "home-like" feel.
Now, this is not what i would've imagined as a "Haley school"
But maybe it is?
"Inspire a World of Good" Now that is a motto i shall follow.
A school of people who want to make a difference. Helping professions.
I could benefit from this!
I ultimately made my decision over the Social Work program and not just the campus. I was rewarded a merit scholarship of $15,000 as well !!
I have many anxieties regarding college, but all of my fears could also have amazing benefits. Is it a shame that fear can take control over how incredibly blessed you are? I'm going to college!! This fear needs to leave!!
Sometimes it's good to be afraid. Fear is an unpleasant feeling, and anxiety makes it seem even more like hell. Though, anxiety makes things unpleasant, NOT impossible.
Good things could come of this!
