This coming fall, I will be a senior, entering my final year of high school and public education. After this year, I will have to pay for my education (barring scholarships of course). The thought of that is daunting, to say the least. I've heard the horror stories of students leaving college with huge amounts of debt that weighs them down for life. I'm determined not to let that happen to me.
Wednesday, my dad and I got back from a little college trip. We went up to Lipscomb in Nashville, and Harding in Searcy, Arkansas. Both of them were Christian colleges, and both of them really seemed to want me there, which surprised me. I mean, yeah, I'm above average, but those two schools were treating me like I was a genius, which kind of embarrassed me, and also scared me a little bit. What would they do if I went to their school and did really bad? Maybe they would kick me out. That happened to my dad, and he spent the next 7 years of his life trying to fix that mistake....
