As I have been watching the events that have followed after the September 11th's terrible tragedies, all I can keep thinking to myself is, " I wish I could be there helping, I wish I could help hunt down those terrible people that did this to us!"ÃÂÃÂ Though I'm not talking about the heroism that would come with this, no I'm talking about doing that job, doing what I love to do.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ Though that is a long ways off, I'm actively working on it, because I plan graduating in December and attending MSSC to obtain my Criminal Justice Degree, and someday be able to apply for the FBI and be accepted. Not only do I want to get my Criminal Justice degree, but I also want to get one in Psychology. And though I have these high dreams I need my education first, and paying for this is the problem, because coming from a family of 4 children my parents long ago decided that we would have to pay for our own college educations.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ Many times when I think of the cost of my dreams, I get very discouraged because I have worked every year during school, and during the summer of my high years and I have yet been able hardly put enough away to pay for my first semester. As of right now, I am working 30 hours a week, and attending school, which it makes it hard to keep up and remain active with my clubs, 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, FBLA, DECA, SADD, and Hi-Step, but I do try, but I have so many that it sometimes proves to be difficult.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ As I explained before during the summer I do keep a job, but I also volunteer to do many things also. One thing that is very important to me that I have done for many years, is volunteer to be a 4-H camp counselor, someone that helps with the camp, and mentors those young kids, and tries to make good impressions on them, so help guide them in some way. This summer I was also able to handle working two jobs. That was a challenge let me tell you.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ Sometimes I find myself very stressed out, but then, I sit down and think, "That's one more step to my dream, one more closer to it."ÃÂÃÂ Then I relax and think of the next few things I need to get done, to put me a little father ahead in the game and I set my mind to getting those things done. And sometimes I wonder if I'm doing all of this for nothing, sometimes I wonder"ÃÂÃÂ¦ "Will you really like being in the FBI?"ÃÂÃÂ Then I tell myself, "You'll only know if you get there and decide that you don't."ÃÂÃÂ So if you could help me along in obtaining my dream, I would be most appreciative. It's going to be a long hard road, but I'm looking forward to walking very part of it. And thank you greatly for considering my application.
