I can honestly tell you that my future is in full swing. I can’t remember the last day my mom hadn’t asked me about college, when teachers forgot to assign homework to “make us better” or when the word career was just a six-letter word. That’s hardly true anymore. My mom is constantly badgering me about colleges I should attend and majors I should consider. As for teachers, they are assigning as much grueling homework as ever. And, in my vocabulary, the word career is a life-altering six-letter word.
The other day, I had been walking down the hallway at school just before fourth period. I had expected the walk to be as uneventful as ever, but I was wrong. As I neared my classroom, I saw a girl standing in front of her friends, knocking the books out of a boy’s arms. Her friends laughed as she made fun of him. And as for me, I had never felt more torn.
