The grass is always greener....

They say the grass is always greener on the other side and it indeed is! I did not always appreciate my school but after leaving class, I realized that my AP classes prepared me more for my classes then I thought they did. I do wish I had gotten more college counseling but I felt it benefited me to have to figure it out by myself (of course I wasn't thinking this at the time). It really helped to not have everything at my fingertips, in retrospect. I got a job using my journalism with no guidance whatsoever and this was fostered by my independence in the college process.
