Gearing up for school


#1

I got my books from Amazon.com (almost 75 bucks cheeper then the collage campus bookshop.) Got the classes I want. One on-line (English/Writing and composition) and one on campus, (Geometry) The on campus one is Tue/Thurs evenings and I can ride the bus in and catch a ride with the kid sis back. Since I am a gardner I would love to get more into design (geometry) and horticulture.

I was in hospital when I some how managed to finish my GED. How that happened I will never figure it out. So this is a bit scary. But I really want to try this. I had good grades for a while despite my head circus. I would like to think I can do this again. I’m looking into a speech class or maybe speech therapy if I do well this coming up quarter in January. I can not believe I am actually going to try to go to school. Two years ago, I never would have ever entertained this idea.

What a surprising two years it’s been.

Good luck. I hope you do well. All you can do is to do your best and put out a good effort. I started college a couple years after I got out of an 8 month stay in a locked psychiatric hospital. It was 1984 and I was 23 years old. Now I need 5 classes for my AA degree. I’m registered for an online class in winter. I’ll keep plugging away.

That’s fantastic! Best of luck to you. I’m quite jealous as I’ve had to discontinue my degree because of illness but I suppose there’s nothing wrong in taking a much needed break!
