Wow, there’s a lot that has been going on since I wrote last. I can’t exactly bring my audience up to date, but this is more of a “dropping a note” to let everybody know that I have not fallen off the face of the Earth. I have been swallowed by the vortex called being a full-time college student and a full-time mom! In fact, I am choosing to write in my blog, rather than doing an English assignment. I have a feeling that there will be regret later tonight when I’m scrambling to complete my assignment by the deadline.
I decided to go back to college, and jumped in with both feet. “Mommy’s taking a full course-load, so no, I can not build blocks with you right now.” My second attempt at college was never written about, but it was much more successful than the first. The classes were much manageable than my first attempt. I guess I thought I could graduate from a class C high school and then immediately take English, Intro Chemistry (I did not take this in high school), Biology, and Sociology. As I wrote in an earlier post, my first semester as an 18-year-old at NMU was an (education) disaster. My second attempt was during my mid 20’s. I attempted Delta Jr. College, and did much better. I can give credit to my age, but mostly it was because I took computer sciences instead of 4-year-college “Freshman Weeder” courses. In my mid-20’s, I still preferred spending time with my friends over doing school work, so I did withdraw from a couple of courses that I got behind in. Accounting and Computer Programming Logic courses were two of the most boring, not-for-me courses, that i have ever withdrawn from! But the classes I completed at Delta were all A’s and B’s. Exactly NONE of those courses transferred to my new school and new major. (We’ll talk about my major in a later post.)
Here I am today, completing my first semester of my third (and last) attempt, with 2 more weeks until finals.
