I’ve talked with and met a large number of young people, both my own age and those of my friends, who are still in school. One of the things they share is that they often doubt their ability to return to school. One of the reasons they doubt this is that most of them are afraid to return to school because of the stigma around it. However, I have found that this fear of their abilities to return to school doesn’t hold true for me.
The main reason I doubt my ability to return to school is that I have been a student for just under three years. As a student, I have had a few instances where I have been in trouble with the law, and one of those instances was for the possession of drugs. I still have a minor criminal record for possession of a controlled substance, but I still have a clean record.
So, I can confidently say that I am not worried about my ability to return to school. My major fear is the lack of a job. My major fear is that I don’t have the time to do what I want to do, and thus I find myself getting into trouble. However, I am not that worried about those. I have two jobs: I am a web developer and I am a musician.
My job is that of a web developer, but I have a side-project that I am really into that will take me into the future. My other job is that of a musician and I am currently playing in a band. So, I am not worried about being broke in the future, but I am worried about not having the time to do what I want to do.
I have a lot of older friends that are very busy. They all have jobs, they are a lot older than me, and are all involved in school, so they are busy, busy, busy. However, they are also very young. They are also very busy, and are very involved in their jobs. However, they are also very young.
It isn’t all just work and college, though. Older college students often struggle with the notion that they have the time to be a serious student. They often have a lot of other things that they are involved in such as getting married, having kids, having a job, and the list goes on. It’s easy to let that little niggle get the best of you.
Many older college students are not as busy as their younger counterparts, but that is a common misconception. Many of them are involved in other activities that they think are more important, but which may be more demanding than a full-time job. For most, the thought of a life of study and work just won’t happen.
One of the most frequent reasons for college students to doubt their ability to return to school is that they feel they have no real skills that can be put to use. This often leads to an unwillingness to pursue any course of study beyond one that is perceived as a “real” study. We’re all familiar with the myth that if you want to learn a subject in college, you have to take a “real” class in that subject.
Because you’re the only person that’s good at the job, you’ll have to take a course of study that teaches yourself to study hard at the job. And if you don’t get the course, you’ll be wasting your time learning that subject just to be able to learn the subject in your spare time.
This is a great example of why we should be using real classes as the basis of all our studies. But it is not a problem that all younger college students can’t get to graduate school. In fact, the number of students who can graduate from college without taking a real class is quite small. In fact, there are more students per year than there are students enrolled in classes. That makes sense.
