After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Choosing school?
Posted on Sunday, December 28 2008 @ 03:52:56 PST

We're getting older. That is a fact. Time passes by and we can't stop it. It shapes things – it shaped the galaxy, planets, mountains, forests and most importantly us. Slowly it defines what defines us: our bodies, minds, philosophies, ideologies and the biggest of them all – our wishes. 'Why whishes?' you probably ask yourselves now. Through wishes we decide – it was your wish to train the sport you train now, your wish to be in the class you are now and etc. And soon we all will be tasked with a hard decision to make as we will have to choose our final education step – college or in European terms – university.


In this short presentation I'll try to give you some hints about choosing the right college, so that your wishes will be fulfilled. There are a lot of things one needs to take into consideration when he is choosing, but I've boiled them down to the most important things and given them the name the big three 'DW' – s

 

1. Decide what you wish to study – this is self explanatory. Many students enter college as undecided, and that is fine. But if you have some idea of a career or a major, that information can help in finding colleges that offer (and even specialize) in that field. Some seek help in career assessment tests which give them a better idea of the interests, strengths etc. If you are interested in one, here I will give you a link to one which I took and was quite accurate. Registration is fast and easy:

2. Decide where you wish to study – would you like to study in your hometown or somewhere abroad? Some people would like to live near their parents until they die, while others cannot wait until they turn eighteen and have the ability to escape from their grasp. Environments also play a big role nowadays. Some prefer studying in campuses that could be described as miniature cities, while others seek colleges that are truly small. Some prefer warm climates, while others cold ones and etc. Colleges nowadays can be found everywhere. Why not study in the place where you will feel the most comfortable?

 

3. Decide why you wish to study – this is the biggest 'DW' of them all. Why do you even wish to study in the first place? Ask yourselves this: do I wish to study because that thing interests me or is it because of the pressure caused by parents, society … ? If it is the latter, stop. Think about it. How do you think your life will look life if you will study something that does not really interest you, if you will have a job that does not really interest you? And mind you, you will have that job for about 30 years. If you will study something only to please someone you will be living their lives, not yours. You will be fulfilling their wishes, not yours … and that is about the biggest mistake in life that you can make.

 

I hope that these three 'DW' – s will help you to choose the right college and maybe also your job. Some of you aspire to become doctors, some would like to work in the logistic industry, others take keen interest in history etc. All are wonderful jobs worth working for and in the end as the Jonas Salk, a praised American Microbiologist said:

 

“There is hope in dreams, imagination. And in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.”
