My first love, Josh, impacted my life majorly, so I wrote about him in a lot of my essays. I always try to find something that I truly do care about, because it's easier to write about, and I can write a good paper on things that I actually connect with.

Mature- Unlike high school, the people at CCBC are focused on their education more than anything else. There are much less distractions, and people seem to care a lot more about their schooling.
