In life people have to make choices, in my life I have had to make

many, many choices. I think that my biggest decision or choice would be

my application and move to college. This would be considered the

biggest decision I have had to make in my life so far.

When your senior year in high school rolls around, most people

have to start thinking about what they want to do with their lives in the

next four years, and what will happen after those four years are done.

This was a time in my life when I had to make a choice about what I

was going to do. I knew that I wanted to do something that involved the

technology of computers and I thought I wanted to be an engineer. Well

that was a choice I made, and it was not exactly a choice I thought about

adequately. As it turns out engineering just wasn't what I was meant to


Some people would say that I made a bad decision, but I would

rather say that I made an unwise decision. Computer engineering (the

major that I choose first semester) was a lot more than I expected. I

ended up failing Physics, Calculus and Chemistry! In addition to that, I

was subject to separation from < > college. Well, now a decision really had

to be made; it was time for me to make a choice.

My parents told me to think about other colleges and to think

about other things to do instead of college, but I knew that < > was

right for me. They often suggested that I go to community college for a

semester or two and make sure that I was doing something that I wanted

to do. I had attended the community college in my area during my last

year in high school to take some extra courses, and I truly detested the

place. I really did not want to go anywhere but < >.

So I petitioned for readmission to a new department at< >. I

decided that I should focus my studies on something other than

engineering, because it was much more than I had expected, and it was

flat out, too hard for me.

Eventually I was allowed back, and as of right now I am on

academic warning. This is a result of my low GPA from last semester. I

know this time around I will do better. Not just because of my choice of

classes, but because I know that I really messed up last semester, and I

am skating on thin ice. My CHOICE to come back and give this my all,

and to do well, is the right CHOICE for me. < > is the right place for


People sometimes underestimate the power of choice in their lives.

They don't realize the impact that it can have. Obviously I didn't realize it

earlier this year. I guess I am an example of how people just don't think
