Even while we are still in high school, some of us already have second thoughts on going to college and getting a degree. For some, the price of the college education is just not affordable, while for some, they think that what they have learned in high school is already enough to equip them in facing the realities and responsibilities in life. I cannot really say what is best or what is not for you. The decision is for you to make, but let me just tell you the importance of getting a college degree and how it can help you in having a better life in the future.
First, let us get to the facts. College graduates get better jobs. They have bigger salaries and they have higher chances in getting promoted. On the other hand, if you have no college degree, at best you land on secretarial jobs. If ever you get promoted, it will really have to take a long time because you will only have your experience as your asset. You did not study a specific field that can be applied to your current employment, unlike when you get a college degree. And these are just a few facts that should convince you to get up and start applying for university.
Competition on finding jobs is steeper these days especially because there are actually less job openings these days. And with the number of people looking for jobs, it would be to your best advantage when you have a college degree to back you up in your resume or curriculum vitae.
There are lots of college courses that you can take. From pure sciences, social sciences, humanities, arts and communication, and even applied sciences. Of course some courses are not present in some universities, but still, you have lots of choices. It is advised that you take a course that you have interests in. For example, if you are fond of music and you have a talent on it, then pursue it. Pursuing your interests in college is great because learning its specifics would be fun for you. Studying will be something that you will enjoy instead of treating it as a burden.
Surveys also shows that when you love what you have studied in college, then most probably, you would also love the work or job that you will have in the future. And when you love what you do, then you will definitely have better perspective of your job and perform better. This could lead you in excelling at it.
When you get to college, it will not be all fun, you know. Not just party and booze, but you will have to study too. You will listen to people who are expert in their fields. They will give you lectures on topics that are related to the degree that you want to finish. Listening to these lectures will give you tips and information on your chosen field. Your lecturers will encourage you to think and learn.
A better life in the future is not definite when you have a college degree. But the odds that you will have a better job and a better life in general are higher when you have a college degree. So, I say, do not make your financial status a reason why you should not be able to get your college degree. Apply for grants and scholarships. Even when you think you are already too old to study, still, apply for grants for adults that are available. BOLA TANGKAS

Day after day
Time passed away
And I just can’t get you off my mind
Nobody knows, I hide it inside
I keep on searching but I can’t find
The courage to show to letting you know
I’ve never felt so much love before
And once again I’m thinking about
Taking the easy way out
But if I let you go I will never know
What my life would be holding you close to me
Will I ever see you smiling back at me? (oh yeah)
How will I know
if I let you go?
