Last semester I went back to school. And for the most part I have been enjoying it a great deal. I took four classes, three of which were the type that had set schedules and outlines that were simple to follow and I did great in those classes. The fourth however was an independent studies class, which I still have not finished. The class ended on December 15th, the same week my grandfather passed away. I was able to get an extension in this class until the beginning of Spring semester. Fact is, I have done about 20% of the work for this class and I have not even started to look at the rest of it. I was just about to say phooey to the whole thing when i checked up on my financial aide status for Spring Semester. If I finish the class in time I can get spring semester fully paid for and on top of that I will get a check equal to the amount of the cost of living for myself for 3-4 months. So, now I have motivation to spend the next 8 days in solitude and try my darnedest to get a D- in the class so I can advance to the cha-ching semester. And the classes I am taking next semester are far greater than the ones I took last semester. Although they do include poetry, which is fine. I don’t want to bash poets. But the extent of my poetry skills can be summed up in late-night-drunken-haiku texts. You know who you are.
So, if I am to achieve this D- that I so greatly desire I have to put a stop to the daily things I love so much that take up all of my time. These include: blogging, myspace (doesn’t really take up my time, but I will skip it anyhow), facebook, x-entertainment, Target, television, house cleaning, diner eating, exercising, phone talking, nights out, nights in etc, etc, etc.
I will see you all next Thursday. Cross your fingers.
