What is my Pupose?

What is my purpose?
            What is my purpose?  I have several purposes in life.  The first and most important purpose is that I was brought into this world to make it a better place.  I have lived eighteen years now and I have had a few purposes but I have several more to accomplish in the future.  I had purposes when I was young that have been accomplished. As I of right now I have I have a purpose in high school leading up to college.
            My purpose as a young kid was to get through elementary, and middle school.  Honestly in think those years were not that great.  As I little kid I got in trouble a lot.  That’s the past though and I have moved on.  As of right now I am in my senior year of high school.  My purpose in my senior year is to get a diploma.  In order for me to accomplish that I have needed to study.  I am a person where stuff doesn’t just stick in your head; I’m a person that has to study a lot.  I can’t stand to get bad grades, so I have a purpose to study hard to get those good grades.  Things like National Honors Society push me to be the best I can be. 
            After High School I plan on having a purpose to go to college to receive a bachelors’ degree.  My dad is a farmer and he wants me to take over the farm when I get out of college. He has told me several times to go to a community college.  I keep telling him that’s not going to happen because you can’t meet as many girls in a community college like you can at the University of Nebraska.  He got a pretty good chuckle out of that.  I think it’s a pretty good reason if you ask me.  My sister attended UNL and my brother is currently attending.  Also my dad attended UNL.  For all them to attend UNL is makes it my purpose to go there and follow their footsteps. 
            My purpose in college is to have as much fun as possible while maintaining good grades throughout my four years.  I plan on going into Mechanized Systems Management to study farming.  My dad has given me a purpose by wanting me to take over the farm when I am out of college.  For me not to let him down as well as the farming business all together, I need to learn everything. I need to learn how to fix things that are broken, to knowing when to buy things, and what things to buy. 
Hopefully what my kids will be doing.
            While I am learning about farm stuff, my purpose is to study hard, but on the weekends I am going to have some fun while trying to meet girls.  I’m hoping that I will find a girl that I will want to be with for the rest of my life.  I will not come out empty handed.  When I meet that girl that satisfies all my needs, I will soon ask whoever it is to marry me.  I want to have kids in the future, and I want people to say he looks exactly like you.   Hopefully my kids want to play sports when their older because I’m looking forward to re-living my past.  If I get to the point where my kids want to play sports, I am going to give them all the advice I can so they can be the best they can be.  I will probably end up spoiling them, because I will want them to love me. 
            When I am out of college and got my future wife, I am going to carry on the tradition of being a farmer.  I’m a lucky person to be able to get this opportunity.  In today’s world there are many people growing up on farms.  Also to be able to have this given to me is just a privilege.  Land now a day is a whole lot of money.  People don’t have the opportunity to start a farm business anymore.  So pretty much the only way you can become a farmer is if it’s been a tradition.
            Everything I talk about is my purpose in life.  Life is a purpose. You are brought into this world to make a difference.  You want to think about your purposes so you can set goals. Family, school, marriage, faith are my purposes.  I didn’t talk about faith but without god none of this would ever be possible.

  1. Troy,

    I think the only reason you want to go to college is to meet Mrs. McDonald!!! Troy, I hope you get some studying done. :)

    I think it's kind of cool that you already know that you want to be a farmer! You'll make a good one.
