Ok. It’s not that I hate scholarships. I love the fact that I can get free money. The part that I hate is the endless applying for the free money.
Because God knows that I’m broke.
So, I have to think about what exactly I have done in the past four years of my life. And I’ve got to tell you. There isn’t much there. Another thing is… I didn’t even like doing half the stuff I put down.
Golf tournaments. Golf team. Golf fundraisers.
Hated that. Hate this. Hated that one too.
And another thing.
They make me think about who I am as a person. Who I want to become. What I intend to do with my life. My future goals. Why I deserve the money.
I don’t know. I still don’t know. Why the fuck would I know. And I am fucking BROKE.
But I can’t just put that. I have to put down some bullshit I’ve memorised over past three months.
I am a hard working and dedicated student that loves volunteer work. I want the become a historian for a museum. I plan on teaching, writing, and working in archaeology. I want to become a professor at a university. I will use it to further my education so that I may be able to spread knowledge to the far reaches of the world.
That sums up every essay I have written.
Every. Single. One.
But I have to find a way to stretch it to 500 words.
Tell me how to do that.
So, yeah, love the free money. Hate the applications.
