Make Your Own Life Decisions


life-changing-decisions1As a graduate of Morehouse College, a historically all black male institution situated in Atlanta Georgia, I have witnessed the power that females have on today’s men. Spending 5 out of the 7 days of the week in an all male environment and then surrounding oneself  by females for 2 days for 4 years can have drastic effects on one’s social skills, but not the effect many may assume. One fully understands the dynamics of male-to-female interactions. Men run the world but women run men’s heads. Its so sad.

I know of 3 men that have chosen life paths, careers and undergraduate institutions based on the choices of a desired female. What’s so sad is that this girl completely ignores them and simply sees them as friends. A friend of mine, he who shall remain nameless, chose his undegraduate major, chemical engineering, based on the choice of a girl he was fond of. Another friend of mine is transferring to an institution closer to the female that he adores and has adored for over 6 years now for the sake of a chance with her. The third guy has applied to the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University. Unfortunately for him, she no longer attends McGill University, an institution renowned for its academic excellence, the neighbor of Concordia.  And it turns out that this girl favors me. This one girl has ‘run the heads’ of two completely sane 20 year old men. How does this happen?

I in turn like her but in no way am I willing to change schools. I am not prepared to change my major to be identical to hers, and I rarely ever contact her. I am my own man, and I think this is what truly attracts her. I’m not saying this to brag, but I want to help guys out there. To the men out there, my advice is to live your life and the right woman will come.

She currently attends the University of Toronto and pursues a master degree in chemical engineering. The last time we spoke she hinted at the idea of me attending York University, one of Canada’s third largest institutions prominent for its Schulich School of Business, in the hopes of me pursuing a Masters in Business Administration at Schulich. I must admit, she is really persuasive. I almost applied.

I am applying to Duke in the hopes of earning admission to their Fuqua school of Business. I also want to apply to Wharton at UPenn and a few other prominent institutions in the United States such as: Boston University, Cornell University, UNC, Purdue, Notre Dame and Northwestern. I would hate to look back on my life and realize that I chose the graduate school I attended based on the fancy of girl that I have no certain future with. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Men of the world need to wake up. I guess this is what it means to be a Morehouse Man; a man of strong will and character.

Men should be ambitious,set goals, have a social life, be creative, be passionate and  live life by their own rules. Make your own life decisions. Don’t look to others for confirmation on your life paths. When it is all said and done, you must live with who YOU are and the choices YOU’VE made.
