Journal Entry # 1 – Pedro

September 4, 2008

I am thinking a lot about what to do when I graduate from school. I have some options that I am more favorable to choose and this ones are in the humanities area, like Law, Business Administration, etc. Besides thinking a lot about it, I just believe that it’s too early for an 18 year-old guy to make the choice about what to do for the rest of his life, even having the choice to change colleges and jobs. In brazilian society, students in high school worry a lot about their areas and colleges that they will do, and in some cases, they are not prepared at all to make the choice, even because they are not mature enough or so because they just haven´t experienced enough in life and there are so many areas to try. What  I believe it´s right is for the student to travel and get by in order to become more mature and get more experience also.



  1. Gabriela: Pedro I agree with you that we are too young to decide what we’re going to do for the rest of our lifes, but if the person hava 100% sure of what he/she wants to do, I think they have to try enter college when they’re 17 or 18 year old.

  2. I agree with you, that an 18 years old guy is not able to decide all his future. I think I will do what you are saying too: travel to became more mature and then choose a career that I am sure I would really like it.

  3. I disagree. I think that if a 18 year year old person is prepared to drive, vote, drink and do whatever he wants, he has some obligations also. And, because of that, I think that a 18 year old person is prepared to choose the profession.
