So some of you know and maybe some of you don't know, I went back to school last January. I quit taking college classes in the spring semester of 2001. I have regretted not finishing so I decided to sign up with University of Phoenix and Axia their community college. I have finished 3 clocks or 6 classes and I am in my 4th block (2 classes for 9 weeks at a time). I will finish in November and then move onto some of my Bachelors Degrees classes on November 3. I do get burnt out but I need to look at the bigger picture. One day I will finish and finally have my degree. I know that my dad will be so proud of me when this is done. One thing about online classes is that you have to write research papers for each final. I HATE to write research papers with a passion. I dropped out of Eng 102 because of this reason at MCC. So I have muddled through six papers and I have managed to continue my high school grades into college some 8 years later. I currently have a 3.67 GPA and I think that is pretty good for a big procrastinator. Yes I wait until the research papers are due to write them and I know about them for 9 weeks. That's me! I have 35 credits and need 27 more. Right now I am taking Algebra (yuck) and Teaching as a Profession AED 201. I was a little upset about the Math part, in high school I took Pre Cal but Gilbert Chandler gave me 5 credits not 6so I needed to make up for that 1 stinken credit. I thought I had been set, but oh well. At least things are coming back as I look at the problems. Anyways I am proud of myself for going back to school and I hope I can finish soon.
