Journey to College



What was your college major and did you end up working in the career?



My journey to college was big one; I graduated from a small town high school of fewer than 100 graduating students. I left for college about six weeks later because the closest college was 300 miles away. Eegads! I hopped into my little VW bug and off I went 300 miles away from home. Now you have to understand that I never drove further than 35 miles and that was to go skiing at Mammoth Mountain. This day would be the first time I drove on a freeway and around an area with more than one stop light. I was heading for the city. When I got there I studied T.V., radio and film I mean I was in Hollywood what else would I study? I loved the classes and the creativity behind all of it, but when it came to the real thing hated it. So half way through my major I did a 180 and went into the field of Child Development so that I could become a teacher. I finished my degree and have been teaching and loving it ever since.

I thing most people start college with one thing in mind, and it usually changes several times.

I drove a VW Bug in college too! I actually had 3 different ones during that time. Someday, I want to have one again, just to drive for fun.

I am with you on wanting a VW bug again. I keep telling my husband that when the kids are all gone thats what I'm going to get.

I have always wanted a VW bug, the best I did was a Passat. Not good enough for me.

I am still trying to decide what I want to be.

Thank you for the follow, I am now following you.
