I only need three more classes to have an associates degree! By this time next year I’ll be college edumacated. Its just a piece of paper that looks good for transfering, but it’s still something that no one can take from me and something I worked my butt off for.
I already got accepted into the 4 year uni I’m transfering to for social work, where if all goes well I’ll be there through my master’s program. I don’t want to think too far into the future, but I’m excited.
My last three classes have all been A’s and the one before that was a B. That’s well up from my C average after getting hit with psychosis. I’ve been going to this community college since 2009. Not steadily of course, I have a lot of certificates in different things. EMT-Basic, Unexploded ordnance tech, certified nurses assistant. The problem is two of those have expired and one will in a year or two. This associates degree will never expire and it’s something I will have the rest of my life.
I know it’s not exactly a doctorate or anything, but it’s a huge milestone for me. If I do nothing else with school, I’m getting that associates. That is my short term goal.
