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.

    I just decided officially that no matter how great it sounds, I never want to go back to school.

  3. kristiane says:

    dailytri- yes. it’s more work that it seems like at first.
    BTW the check I will receive is of the loan variety, but I am still excited.

    I know how you feel. I had a similar experience quite recently ( My “Hiatus”). I am now a recovering caffeine addict. And I had just gotten off of my dependence on caffeine…

    And you spelled “aid” with an ‘e’ at the end in your “financial aide” tag…why does that happen in english? That and grey/gray. There are so many more. And one really annoying one that I can’t quite think of right now…

    Michael_Y’know I noticed that looked a bit off, but spell check wasn’t challenging me 🙂

    ryc: I don’t think it matters at what age I go to school because even though I’m in the young, prime years for schooling (I think that window is slowly passing too…), I procrastinate and suck so much at time management that I always manage to not have enough time. I think it’s because the nagging of a parent has been completely missing in my life for the past 5 years or so….it might be annoying, but I think I need/needed it.

    I love hiaku texting!!! That’s my favorite platform for poetry!

    Let’s hope my professor has a similar view of the art form.
