In the year 2006, I was in my last semester of high school. I was 17 and certainly not ready for the challenges of life ahead. I had a part-time job at a super-market which I quit shortly before I graduated. The next couple of years honestly were very painful to me, but it could have been worse. Imagine if I had a child out-of-wedlock (though that would have been hard since I never had a girlfriend at the time) or rushed into marriage like some of my peers. My climb in life was slow and frustrating, but I can imagine how much more difficult it could have been. I will say that it's sad in this advanced area of human society that we have so many people in 1st world countries that struggle to stay ahead.
