Today was a day of contemplation. I have been going to school on and office since 1995. I have slowly but surely been trying to obtain a college degree. Sometimes I am seeking an associate degree and then others I just go straight for the gusto and try seeking a bachelor’s degree. At this point I have well over 90 credit hours but some are things I don’t need. I am literally two classes away from finally getting my associate degree in business and graduating in May 2009. So I am finally going to do it.
My semester this spring I am taking American Literature II (where I have to read The Road and read The Great Gatsby, plus three different volumes for the 20th century literature (kind of reminds me of high school in a way but I think this time around I will get a whole lot more out of it). I am also taking General Education Biology and then Creative Writing. I am actually taking Creative Writing because I want to. It is not a required class but I have been enjoying myself so much writing here recently I thought it would actually be fun to take this class. Never in a millions years before would I have ever thought this. I have always thought what I wrote was quite boring. I am pleasantly surprised to learn that people do not think my writing sucks but instead actually like what I have to say. Sometimes (mostly it seems) it puts a smile on your face but overall I feel like I am putting my feelings to paper to help people to understand how I am feeling. It is so therapeutic for me. I thank everyone for just listening to what I have been writing. Please don’t hesitate to leave your comments as I read every single one that is posted. They mean the world to me.
