College Personal Essay


“Cindy if you don’t get your homework done, you’ll never get to college, and you’ll never be able to provide for yourself.” What if you knew the consequences of things before they really happened? That way you wouldn’t have to find out at your own expense. Maybe parents do know what they are talking about, but how do you know for sure until you experience it yourself. If somehow, people could step into someone else’s shoes for one day; wise up to things that happen to many people and learn what to do about it. Wouldn’t be great to be able to look back and view life from an experienced stand point and then go back to yours. You’d know how to deal with things and know what to avoid. What if you had done everything everyone dreams of? What if you could be Cher? Perhaps she is a bit controversial, a bit too Hollywood, but if Cher hasn’t seen it, who has? She is well educated, well traveled and experienced much more than the average person. She has remained Cher, truly and deeply, through out the six decades that she lived through.


In the Fifties Cher grew up with Elvis and Doris Day. Hollywood was still suitable for young children to see uncensored. Good neighborhoods and good schools provided the childhood atmosphere for her. As a teenager, she was glorified for her duet with Sonny Bono. The 1906s were also years notorious for drug using and the free spirit hippie movement. In the 1970s people wanted more entertainment and better highs.
