My depression makes it hard to choose what I would want to do most. Sometimes I want to go to a trade school to become a mechanic, then I remember that I don’t like manual labor. Other times I want to make lots of money at any job I could get, but then I would have to drop out of school. I would want to stay in school and learn for a living. If I could get paid for going to school, that would be an absolute dream! I can’t imagine my life without school, even though I want to just be done already and get my CPA and be smart without effort. I would miss college terribly if that happened. Yes, I would even long for finals week, my absent-minded professors, and my 20 hour days. College life is a challenge that ups the ante every day. It reminds me that nothing worth having is easy, especially knowledge. Knowledge cannot be replaced with money or fame because it is worth so much more. I think that is why I want it so much. And who would be unsatisfied when they could have both money and knowledge?
