I absolutely am in love with my school; the University of Arizona. And it truly breaks my heart that due to my unexpected financial situation I might have to transfer to Arizona State. That’s the last place I want to be but at this point I shouldn’t care where I’m getting my degree in long run. Going to a university has always been a dream of mine and it’s been such a privilege. But if I continue to stay here I’ll have to take out a loan each semester and being stuck with a huge debt is something I can’t let happen. Going to ASU will be cheaper in the end. Just sucks how these last few months all my goals and plans didn’t go as I expected and wanted. But no matter what, I”ll always be a U of A Wildcat.
- Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
- Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
- Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
- Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
