Are You In A Dilemma?

            College life is amazing and full of surprises. There is a lot of exploring, self realization, hook ups and millions of other things. This is what makes college life really interesting. With this very many interesting involvements, it is very easy to get caught up in between scenarios. Many are the times most students are in dilemmas of many types. They argue with their conscience on whether to do the right thing or give in to the wicked urge of risking their academic life by exploring new things and getting involved in crimes. They say bad company ruins good morals, which is very true. You can’t help being a drug peddler if your friends are, and they are making serious money out of it, as much as you could be the holiest of the holies. If your peers always miss classes, pay their friends so that they can write dissertations for them, instead of researching and giving it a shot despite the technicality in the dissertation writing ,sooner or later you will you will be a victim as well. Fighting with your conscience and peer pressure is a war that can be very tough and it’s only the disciplined and them that can shun evil for the right things survive.

            It is at this point that the question on your morality comes up. There are consequences to either side you choose. If you choose your friends to your education you embrace failure in your life, and if you choose your studies to the useless things, you stand to be a victor. However this does not mean that for there are no good friends, they are there sure and we must make the right choices in this life and remember that it is individual performance that counts at the end of the journey.


I know the aforementioned topic is not everybody’s cup of tea, more so if dissertation and thesis writers are among the ‘everybody’, but I will be lying if I say I am bothered by that. This is for the simple reason that I know for a fact that it is true that all undergraduates are the same. The similitude is not in the character traits of the undergraduates-of course in that case they can never be the same-but rather as concerns their career prospects. It hurts but it is true that for the most part the career prospects of a student who undertook law in campus is not very different from that of the one who took a business course, say Bachelor of Commerce or an Engineering course.

It may not appear realistic if you haven’t been keen in the job market but the reality couldn’t be closer to the truth. I personally speak from personal experience because what I do in the job market is very different from what I studied in campus. I studied Electrical engineering in the university but believe it or not I am now pursuing a career in medical technology. I also happen to work on part-time in a law firm.

If that did not shock you enough then consider that my best friend who did the same course as I in campus is now working for the United Nations in the public relations department. The short and long of this story is that all undergraduates are the same , or better still there is none of them that is better than the other when it comes to the job market. I know while in campus there are some students that like chest thumping and feeling smug about their courses and how nice they think they are; for all I care to know I would rather they refrained from that because any student can end up doing what they are studying in the job market and vice-versa.

Biggest Mistakes

Statistics show that there are so many unemployed graduates just hanging in there, waiting for a wonder to happen. There is danger in keeping all your eggs in a single basket and it’s so unfortunate that most of our college students toil with the aim of being employed. It’s pretty much like the politicians or the old men of the council who take sides blindly, make decisions for the entire state not because of what is right but what they think is right.  This together with the general satisfaction that enough of inventions have been made already deters any progress of substance in the today’s generation. Let’s face it guys, the corporate world, and in this case I am focusing on the white collar jobs, does not have the capacity to absorb every graduate.

It has been a norm that when students join campus, they all engage in online businesses such as dissertation writing, article writing, research work or even thesis writing among others. These are bright minds for heaven’s sake. Brilliant ideas like dealing with stocks are a very lucrative venture but it’s very rare that you will find university guys having interest in it. Frankly this is what happens; we are unfair to ourselves. We concentrate wholly in one field and flock it with resources whereas there are only limited slots. We forget that there are numerous untapped potentials and some of them are those we despise or have an attitude unfortunate the dawn of realization shines on most of the students when it’s too late; when they already gave up on their dreams, their hope in life, and their self-trust dies away. They say, we learn through mistakes, but do we have to wait until we make our own? A lot of blunders have already happened, the damage is already done and learning from these is vital. If you want to save your sole, walk on your heels.

A Life in Denial

I don’t like talking about myself so much unless if I have to. I have over time learnt to be independent; do things on my own, hate consultations and somehow I find solutions to problems. I am a fan of extorting information from others, always trying to be a step ahead of them. Let us just say I am selfish and jealous and as the nature of human being, I am an ill-hearted competitor. I am the kind of person who will enter the library and reach every classmate present greeting them, but aiming to see what they are studying so I include it in my to-do list. I have to say it now; I am never a team player.

There is this one time though I got a shock of a lifetime. I arrived one Tuesday morning from home, missed the Monday lesson. I went straight to my ‘closest’ friend to find out what they did the previous day. This time my world turned around. There was an assignment on dissertation which was due in two weeks, that scared me because the only lesson that I missed in my three years of college was about the one thing I had in vain tried understanding; dissertation writing. On the other hand I was not ready to let go off my ego and ask for guidance from. Clearly there was need to do something. I was thinking of hiring someone to do it for me even if it meant paying to swear them to secrecy. I never imagined anyone thinking of me as a looser. I contemplated on the matter and thought that hiring a classmate would be a shame, since the news would finally leak. Again hiring a junior is lowering my dignity, so I chose going technological went online opened an account and hired the online contractors. In the end it was done, believe me the lady I contracted was from our class and you expect what transpired. Self-acceptance is a paramount virtue in success.

College Education

With the great competition in the world today whereby, getting a college of your choice is quite an issue, the college life is another tough life which spills over to the outside world. There global recession hence the reason many are people jobless despite their beautiful certificates. Graduates are tar making for several years after college and finally end up doing odd jobs or going back to school with the hope things will get better. In the job sector competition among the employees for the best titles with high pay. One would really wonder whether college education is really important. Life is just very vigorous and it is the fittest that survive. It is really tough but I believe the toughest of all is facing the difficulties of life without a certificate than with it. Education is an investment that appreciates and never depreciates at any one time.

The graduates who stand the many challenges of college life and emerge as victors have the hope of being better people in the future. They become responsible and just don’t sit and wait for the welfare money from the government but work hard to achieve their life time goals. They have a starting point in life unlike an individual who did not get to see the class wall, listen to the long lectures, write dissertations and sit for their examinations. Education gives hope and self confidence. It is with good credentials that an individual is able to get themselves a good job, earn good money and therefore live a dignified life if discipline is maintained.

College education is always a good legacy for the society and for your children in the future. They will always want to be like daddy or mummy and out do them if possible. A parent’s education is a good foundation for their children in the future. Despite all the difficulties in college and out of college, there is no doubt that education is the key to a successful life.
