Random Rants is a weekly post I am starting that I will post on Sundays. I will be ranting about things I loved or didn't love from the past week...these rants do not pertain to books.
Ahhh, I find myself very impatient when it comes to school. I'm going back to school to finish up my degree to get my AA and I can't register for classes until the 22ed at 9pm!! Nine freaking PM! Laaawd help me now. You're all probably thinking, "Why the hell is she so excited about school?" lol. Well to assuage your curiosity, I'm more or less excited because I love school, yeah... right. Here's the real reason. I feel like I've fallen so behind. Most of my friends have graduated with their BA's and are either going back to school for their Masters or taking a breather from the books. A few of my friends have graduated from a Junior College with their AA's and are now transferred to a 4year University and are well on their way to getting their Bachelors degree. *sigh* I have been in and out of school since I graduated high school (Which was back in '08 mind you) My first year of college I ended up withdrawing from all of my classes because I couldn't pay for the books and laaawd knows you definitely need those books to keep up to pass the class. Plus, I had gotten my very first job and was putting half of my pay checks away to pay for my books the next semester. Well, let's just say that didn't happen (the saving up part) Things happen, family happens and you end up just as broke as the day you were before you started working. So anyway, the reason behind my being in and out of school is because of financial issues. Now, I don't want to make this a huge ass post, although it seems to just be getting longer and longer the more my fingers fly over this dang keyboard. So, let me just say this before y'all start thinking that I haven't tried everything. I don't qualify for financial aid, as my parents make too much money, I used to qualify for the BOG fee waiver (free tuition) until my mom got a raise at work and then that went out the window. I've applied for more scholarships than I can count. I've applied for so many jobs, waited the six months, and applied to those same places again and I'm still applying to more jobs. A week or so ago I turned in 12 applications for CVS at 4 different locations and for 3 different positions. You would think living in California there would be a shit load of jobs open, but nope. I have yet to find one. So needless to say, I'm finally going back to school and I am gonna try and knock out this AA degree by next summer and transfer out to a 4 year university to work on my Bachelors. I hope to be working on my masters by 24... that sound's good right? I sure hope so.
Soryy for such a long post. But, I kept it to just one topic for today :)
