Since I sorta hijacked the other thread with my college discussion, I figured a thread was needed. Except I don't have anything else to say currently.
I did go meet with an academic advisor this morning to make sure that I'm on track to transfer to CSU after I graduate from the two year college I'm currently attending. It looks like I have plenty of time to get my required credits in. CSU has a 60/60 agreement with my college that I complete 60 at FRCC for my associate degree and if I follow the right guidelines, I can graduate with my bachelor's from CSU with only 60 more credits. I'm currently set to finish early if I don't mess up.
The advising office is probably sick to death of me. I did horribly the first time I went to college. I was much too busy drinking, partying, and throwing away my full ride. Like Yardgnome said in the other thread, its a lot different when its your own money that you'd be wasting. Besides, my four kids would be kinda a hindrance to my old partying ways So I'm constantly in the advising office, making sure I'm doing what I should be doing. I just completed some intense career counseling to focus in on a major. I was torn between two things and finally was able to figure out the path I wanted to take. Its funny, I have a lot more considerations now than I did when I was 18. Now I have to not only think of a career that I want to do, but also one that would fit in with my family. I can't do something that will have me working long or late hours with four young children.
