>>> i realized yesterday that i need to make myself a promise. to never complain about college ever again. there are too many people worldwide who never have the chance for an education--and a lot of people within this country would laugh at the possibility of attending a university. i don't care that to compete in the world i live in, i have to get an education--that doesn't take away the simple fact that it is a privilege.
>>> and i love school, i really do. i gripe and get stressed and complain, but i feel like my world, through education, is slowly becoming illuminated, one piece at a time. the more i learn, the more viewpoints i look through, the more i question the system--the more my black + white world turns to color. and although i will never even near knowing it all, the color i see now sure is stunning.
