I chose this.
It wasn’t like I didn’t have the grades or the extracurricular or the brains to go to college. Three even wanted me in fact.
But I turned them down. I said it was because of scholarships, but in the end I chose that too.
I chose to go to Wake Tech, I chose to work, and I chose this life. No regrets.
But it hurts.
And when you post on your facebook about how wonderful college is or how great all your free time or how it’s so hard to find time for your four classes and a social life…
I might just hate you a little bit. But I hate myself more.
Because I chose this.
