School Update

If you haven’t read “The History of My Attempts At College” read it first. Seriosuly. This post can wait.

I got a hold of the college early this morning. Within 15 minutes I had the balance issue cleared up and was able to start the process of registering for classes. Unfortunately by the time I went to register, classes had already started and I needed to teacher’s signature to get in. If there was even a seat available. I spent most the day emailing teachers and so far have only gotten one response. The one response I did get was a sympathetic I’m sorry, someone beat you to it. So between that and the fact by the time I do get in I’ll be behind, and the fact that two of the three classes I’m trying for (whichever I can get in first being the one I go with) I’d have to buy a book as well… I’m just going to have to sit out this semester.

On April 26th I’ll be able to register for summer semester. And first thing that morning I’ll be signing up for two to three classes. I already have my financing squared away. I know what classes I’m taking. I just have to wait out the next month to register and the next three months for classes to start.

So why the sudden obsession to start classes again? Well first off I would have been taking classes all along if I hadn’t owed the school money. So this really isn’t all that sudden. The money has only been paid off for the last month.

More importantly I had a long talk with my therapist about my depression. And I think we are all on the same page that I’m not doing enough with my life. As stressed as I sometimes get balancing school, work and home, I feel a lot better about myself when I’m pulling in good grades. Also, I get bored way too easily and when I’m bored I think. When I think I dwell and reflect. There is a lot of negative to dwell and reflect on. So boredom literally puts me into a bad place emotionally and mentally. School keeps me busy. Good grades give me ego. School is very good for me. And it betters me. So all in all it’s a good situation to find myself in.

Anyway, I’ll keep everyone posted. Hopefully this time next month I’ll be registered for classes. I’ll beat down anything that stands in my way. The good news is I’ll have time to do so this time around.

    Sounds like you've got a good plan in place. Also, all the stress of getting yourself registered may have adversely affected your performance this time around anyway, so it may be better to start when you don't have to rush it all.

    I know that would affect me.

    I guess it's for the best I'm not going this semester.

    Now I have time to find a second job…
