Why I’m Not Going Back To School

I feel like I’ve done everything I wanted to achieve in school. I just need to graduate university in 2019, which I’m on track to do.

I’ve already declared my intent to graduate, and that fact is finally starting to sink in.

After I graduate next year, I plan to work. I will work hard.

I have all these ideas and plans, dreams and goals. I can’t wait to make them happen.

I love telling stories, so I hope I never stop.

I know my career is just getting started, so I have plenty of time. Still, I want to do everything right now.

Looking back, I’ve come a long way. Once upon a time, I entered the public school system not knowing a word of English. Then I went on to win an English award at my elementary school graduation. I even won writing scholarships in university as well.

I’ve accomplished a lot in academia, and I’m proud of my achievements. But I’m ready to move on to the next chapter of my life.

  1. Good for you! School is great and all but honestly, if you ever did want to learn something new, it’s very easy to teach yourself these days between books and the Internet. So, if you ever get the inkling to go back (I do once in a while), save the money and attempt it yourself. It’s fun, less stressful, and you won’t have a degree, but you’ll have the satisfaction and rewards of it after. 🙂


    1. Exactly. Agreed, I feel the same way. I’ve learned a lot from my summer jobs too. That’s true. If I ever want to learn something new, I can always take an online course or two.


      1. I was sure a better grad student than I was an undergrad. My graduate work was a perfect 4.0 where my undergrad work was below a 3.4 and it wasn’t partying or any of that! It was taking an overload in undergrad semesters, where as a grad student I was carrying three grad level classes a semester–piece of cake! Besides, I was a lit major in grad school. I just “wallowed” in it!


      2. Good for you! Wow, you’re so smart. Haha. I hear you. I don’t party either, but I’ve experienced what it’s like to take on too much. That can get overwhelming. Yay! Thank you for sharing your story with me.
