I've been really slacking in the school department. I got my first C in college (well, this time around) on a test last week. I only
studied crammed from 30 minutes before the test. But in my defense, it was a hard test.
I just don't want to study or do homework anymore. It doesn't help that I can't remember
shit anything anymore either. I only have 5 more weeks of class counting finals I think. I need to find the motivation to pull my head out of my ass the clouds and get with the program. I could still get an A in my classes.
After this semester, I have 6 classes left to take and then I'll have my Associates in Accounting, which was my first educational goal of several. No matter how I slice it, I think it will be the Spring of 2013 before I get those 6 classes done.
It's hard to work full-time and go to school. I can't even imagine throwing a child into the mix.
But I will make it happen.
I refuse to be a college drop-out again. Not that I regret dropping out first time but this is different. I'm 30 years old for Pete's sake. And I'd like to be some kind of role model for my child someday.
Anyramble, next semester I registered for two classes. I'm due the week of finals. One class is Access and it's every Saturday in March. I signed up to take this class before but ended up dropping it. It always sounded like a good idea to only have to go to a class 4 times. It's from 8 to 4. But when I was working part-time, it wasn't as good of an idea as it sounded like. You know, giving up a whole month of weekends. Oh, by the way, I quit bar tending as soon as I found out I was pregnant. But now, I have no life on the weekends so I'm thinking I may be able to do it.
The other class I signed up for is on Tuesday nights. I'm taking it with a friend so we will ride there together. It is called Office Procedures. We refer to it as the "How to Use a Fax Machine class". Here is a description from the website that I copied and pasted:
"Students handle office activities using the networked and laptop computers in a simulated office environment. Students access software including word processing, electronic mail and calendaring, and other specialized software. Other topics include file management, reception, postal services, internet usage, travel and forms preparation."
I mean really, I'm quite proficient in Internet usage and e-mailing. I've tried everything for the last two years with my adviser to try to get out of this class. I asked to have my boss write a letter. I asked if there was anything I could substitute. I asked if I could pay her off. Not really but I'm guessing that wouldn't work either.
So, I'm going to take it. I'm guessing I won't have to think very much, which will be a good thing.
So, I'm hoping to find the motivation I'm looking for and do some homework or something this weekend.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
