Why I Write: My Question

While writing my essay “Why I Write”, I found myself thinking about the two approaches to writing: viewing writing as an undertaking that deserves time and care or trying to get the assignment done as quickly and painlessly as possible. I often see many of my peers that genuinely aren’t happy in the classes  they are paying thousands of dollars to take.  My question is, why do students feel obligated or push themselves to take classes or choose career paths that they don’t genuinely enjoy and may even despise? I think there are many answers to why this could be so I look forward to your responses!
