The year was ninety-ninety six I was a nineteen year old Senior at a boarding school on Cape Cod called Riverview. I was one of fourteen senior guys which was a problem because unfortunately the senior dorm fit twelve guys not fourteen. This turned out to be a sign though because I and one other guy were put next door with a Junior, a few sophomores, and finally four to five youngsters that were either eleven or twelve. Except here is the thing one of them became a bit more close to me then all the rest his name was Keith, he was different then the others he took me beating him up not in a violent way more like a big brother would. I at times made sure he was doing his schoolwork when the dorm staff was busy. His life was cut way to short when he passed away December of 2010. Keith, I know your looking down on the entire Riverview Family. You will be missed!! Thanks for helping me be inspired Keith.

First off is that truly a serious question no not really at this point in time in my life though maybe it is. I have two friends that are extremely successful and neither of them finished getting an Associates Degree, one works for a company called Flextronics which basically is a company that Verizon contractually uses to fix your broken cell phone. He makes good $ sure he can save some of that $ because he is younger then me and lives with his mom&dad still though no degree and he makes good $. The other friend is married, and makes even more then the first friend granted he does have a great background in computers. Meanwhile here I am I got my A.S with a concentration in Early Childhood Education in 2008 and what have I got I work P/T at Cape Cod Community College. No I'm not having a session where I want anyone to tell me what to do, it just is draining knowing that I've got more education then both of them yet I cannot get a job doing what I want, or a job that is 30+ hours doing something. I just wonder was it worth my time and effort to go to college or did I waste my time? Again am I being serious No not really.
