Free Write: A time when you said “No” When I first got to URI, I wanted to turn around and go back home. I hated it. I just broke up with my first boyfriend and I was in a new place with out anything I was familiar with. By the next weekend, I wanted to come home. There was no way that anybody was going to get me to stay. Knowing how miserable I was, I thought when I called my parents to ask them if I could take a train home they would instantly say yes. Well, the instantly said no. So, like a brat not getting her way, I said that I refused to talk to them until they let me come home. Some how I lasted about a week with out talking to my Mom or Dad. And by the time I talked to them, they were both very upset that I made them worry like I did. Their point of view of this situation was that they wanted me to stay at school so I could get used to everything at college. But at the same time, they were worried that I was going to take a train home and potentially get lost. At the end of 3 completed weeks at college my parents finally called me Thursday afternoon to inform me that they booked a train ticket home for the following day. This of course made me happier then ever. When I arrived home, I got to experience everything I missed and loved. However when Sunday night rolled around and I had to leave, it was one of the worst feelings I have ever experienced. In fact, forgot that I had to go back to Rhode Island. When I talked to all my other friends, they did not even want to come home yet. I knew that since I had these feelings of dread and weights on my feet, that something about my college choice was very wrong. At the same time, I knew I had to go back and give it my all because at the end of this, I did not want to regret not giving URI a shot. But as the days went on, the connection between URI and myself was never discovered. There was just something that I did not like about it. I actually could not even remember the things I liked about it that made me pick it to begin with. I knew deep down I needed to go to a school that was closer to home. Not just for me, but for my ill Grandparents. I was the only Grandchild that they had and if something happened to them when I was going to school in Rhode Island, I would not be able to live with myself. So I applied to Rutgers University and finally got accepted. And now at the start of my sophomore year that is where I will be attending school. In the end of all this, with out my parents saying no to me, and me giving the no back to them, I would have never discovered what was right for me. College is supposed to be the best four years of your life. And I’m happy I realized where I am going to be the happiest.
