'unsure of my future route' - Why you want to transfer & what you hope to achieve

I generated a pile of reasons on why i want to transfer. However, i am having difficulties getting started. This is just a rough draft, it may not make sense. Please excuse it.

Why you want to transfer & what you hope to achieve? 250 words -1000

Entering college, like many, I was unsure of my future route. I was taking a variety of general Ed classes to fulfill my Associate degree for Liberal Arts & Science. ( I still haven't found my study of interest, How should i continue my sentence)

I have lived and commute in the city my entire life. I want to be able to experience a more rural / surburan environment. I want to live independently & develop responsibilities. I want a larger school for research/internship opportunities. All of this attributes to my reason for transferring. My school doesn't offer afterschool programs, only during specific days & hours. I feel this limit the students chance to become interactive around campus. In X school, i read that there is always something to do, whether it's an event or an concert. I want to be actively involved.

What else can i include? Please help!!

Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you can use a personal anecdote or experience which relates to your outgoing personality.

Also, always try to include an academic aspect to your reasons to transfer; it makes for a more solid argument. An example could include a switch of majors, a stronger department for your program at Y school.

I believe, from what you have typed out, that you desire a more tight-knit and inclusive college environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can highlight this by perhaps arguing towards your desire to be in an environment with greater school spirit, approachable and accessible professors and student body.
