Am I Really This Old?
As I am preparing to take my last final of sophomore year this afternoon, I can't help but think that I am almost halfway done with college. SAY WHAT?! I know it is SO weird for me to think that, because it literally seems like yesterday that I was graduating from high school and about to leave to start my freshman year here at USC. Time, please feel free to slow it down! With this realization that I am getting ridiculously old, I also realize that I need to star thinking about what exactly I want to do once I graduate from college (weird thought). Since I am an education major, it is very important to have your masters when you are looking for jobs or a lot of schools won't hire you. So, I know that I will definitely stay in school after graduation to get that, but what am I going to do after that? Do I want to teach here in Columbia or in Greenville or go some place completely different? I have actually thought a lot about doing the Teach for America program. This is an organization where you agree to teach in low income schools that are devastated by poverty for at least 2 years. They have programs all over the country from Tennessee, Washington D.C., California, and even in South Carolina. There are so many opportunities with this program and I think it would be a really neat experience. But, who knows I could change my mind between now and when I graduate. So, whatever path God sees fit to send me on is the one I will graciously and faithfully take. I know that He has a bigger plan for me than I do and I really can't wait to find out what that is!
