    Well after doing alot of thinking, and number crunching, and writing a bunch of lists over and over. I did the scariest thing that I could think of.








    I applied for college today :eek1:



    i figured that i'm still not really ready for full time work. so i thought this was the smart thing to do.




    now all i have to do is, find some classes to take that are not all ready full, seeing as how class starts in a week. i'm a little behind, and fear most of the "good" classes are already full



    man what was i thinking? i'm actually a little scared, its been over 8 years since i have been to College...



    :doah:

    Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. You can get student loans. You occupy your empty day. You make yourself more marketable in the end. What's the downside?

    There's really no downside, College is just a scarry thought to me. Its been so long since i've been in school. Just think of the test and finals and oh my goodness.....homework! I hate homework! lol
    over all i'm pretty excited, scared but excited. I do however feel like this was the right decision to make.

    Well i went to sign up for some classes online last night. and it said that i wasn't allowed to. So i went down to the college today, and aparently 10 years ago, I signed up for a couple classes, never went, just signed up. and even tho i never went to these classes. because i didn't "officially" drop them. they say i owe them $867.77. And I can't sign up for any classes until this "bill" is paid. I tried to explain my situation right now, and the fact that it was 10 years ago and i never even went to them...but they didn't care. so i asked if there was a payment plan. and they said no, they didn't have the staff to track payment plans, and that the balance has to be paid in full before i can take any classes..


    so looks like i'm not going back to college...

    oh well, i guess..

    oh and thats my friend Elena in that pic, Shes a sweetheart..

    I think you made a good decision. And I also think you should put a full size version of your avatar up for us to see.
