2 years....was it worth it?

2 years of college has finally has come to an end. Its crazy to think that i'm now out into the real world and out of education. It has been the most eye opening experience i've had so far in my life and i'll never forget it. I've learn't so much, not just educational but about myself and knowledge that I can use in the real world.  

 The reason I originally went to college in the first place was because I had no other choice and I had to stay in education. I chose to do Health and Social Care because I always knew it was something i'd like to go into because my mum and nana were both nurses and I always liked the idea of helping people. I knew that with this course I would be able to work with all ages and not just be tied down to a certain age range. 

There have been many ups and downs over the 2 years and without my tutors and peers I don't think I would have been able to do it. Whenever I felt down and felt like giving up they would be there pushing me on and helping me out when I needed it. My tutors have been the real stars, without them I wouldn't have been able to learn how to cope with stress and get all my assignments in on time. 

I've made some amazing friends over the past 2 years, both in and out of college. Its been a time where I have really learn't who my true friends are and who I really need in my life. When you become an adult with responsibilities you soon realise who is really there for you and who isn't. I've learn't its better to have a small circle of friends who you trust and can rely on than have a huge circle of 'friends' who are never there when you need them. 

In my first year of college I was awarded most improved student. This really helped to boost my confidence and made me believe that I would be able to complete the second year . It has been a stressful and sleepless 2 years of my life but I think its all been worth it and I don't regret it at all. The workload was more than I could have ever imagined and I could have had a baby and got more sleep than I did because I was up most night writing assignments. I was able to finish he course with D*D*D*! I got a distinction in every single assignment that I submitted. Finding out my result just made the past 2 year worth it. 

I'm so glad I made the decision to go to college. I came out with the equivalent to 3 A*'s at a-level and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. Are you in college, starting college or finishing college this year? How are you finding it?
