Daniel Carter—Hello fellow Eagles,
For those who don’t know me, which you should, my name is Daniel Carter and I am a freshman and a Bport Winging It newbie. I may be a freshman, but this isn’t my first year in Brockport. Nope, I did part-time college last year as a senior at Brockport High School. Yes, that building that is really close to the college that some people mistake as the college and say, “This is it?” So yes, I’m a local Brockportarian or whatever you guys would call it. I know the entire village like the back of my hand and have probably covered every square inch of it on foot, bike, and car. If you ever want to know where that road is that the party is on, just ask me. But, don’t go looking for me to join you because I don’t drink, or party for that matter. If you’re calling me boring, well, there’s the x at the top of the screen; I don’t need haters on my blog.
For all of you that stayed, congrats! You win…..nothing. Sorry, I’m a college student who spent most of my cash on the first semester of school. I wish I had enough money to be able to spend it on strangers and people I’ve just met, but then I really wouldn’t need to go to college, would I? Well I probably still would go because I’m a nursing intent major and I chose this major because I love what it is to be a nurse. I’m not just in it for the ladies, for all you boys out there. I got asked the same thing when I did cheerleading. “You must be in it for the girls….” Some people really push my buttons. I mean, sure, there are a lot of girls, but that wouldn’t make or break the job or career for me. Alright, maybe if I had to touch the butt of a guy flyer I might have some problems, but I loved cheerleading and had a passion for it. I do things for the direct reason of either I am getting paid, or I love to do it. In the case of nursing, it will probably be both.
Well, I applaud all of you freshmen who have made it through your first couple weeks. I am proud of you guys, I sure know I’m having trouble at times. College really is difficult, and that couldn’t be stressed enough. I hope all of you are doing well and are successful, but for those of you who are struggling, don’t be afraid to seek help. The quicker you can get help understanding something, the better you will be in the long run. There are a bunch of opportunities for help in the college that people take for granted every day. You know how you just spent most of your money on college? Well a chunk of that money went to these programs that help students, and you are personally paying them whether you use them or not. That goes for the clubs and sports teams on campus as well. Maybe that will put things into perspective, or maybe it won’t. Or maybe you were one of those guys who hit the x at the beginning of this and lost out. Either way, I can’t make your choices for you, so all I can do is hope that you guys are being smart and not falling into trouble, and that you will take advantage of the resources available at your fingertips.
