I have far. | agathashelly's Blog

Well, they finally posted all of my scores for this semester and I passed with flying colors. My GPA is now up to a 3.0, which is the national average for community college students. Now all I have to do is do well this coming semester and I'll be a shoe in for the deans list, which is one of my academic goals.

I've never been a truly confident person, especially in academics, but all of that is changing. For the first time in my life I am flourshing and I have to say that it feels damn good. I passed with all B's this semester, especially in math, which is not my strong suit I'm afraid.  Now that I am done with Pre-Algebra, this means that I am offically done with all of my developmental classes.

I honestly thought that I'd never get to this point, but I have and now I know without a doubt that no matter what college throws at me, I will get through it in one way or another. Despite what some people may believe, college is no walk in the park. It isn't about the partying, it's about learning. I've seen so many students in my classes tank and quit half way through because the pressure was too much for them and I will openly admit that I've been there.

There was a point in my life when I wasn't sure about anything and I wasn't as comitted to college as I am now. I quit because it got too hard and I wasn't willing to go the extra mile like I am now.  Then there were those arrogant know-it-all's who thought they knew more than the teacher.  These are those occasional few who thought it was alright to not come to class, do homework and such because they don't being told what to do. Well, that kind of additude ultimatley bit them in the ass and they failed because they weren't prepared when they should have been. I know it's not my problem or my buisness, but like I've stated in a previous post, it becomes mine when I'm thrown into the mix.

I will never forget the time this semester when someone actually had the gual to offer me money to finish their homework before finals. Seriously, how low can you get?! Like I've stated before, why even bother enrolling in college when you don't intend to even make an effort in the classes that you are in?! Anyways, I'm sorry for that rant, I just get so angry whenever I think about that aspect of my college experience so far.

Anyways, aside from that I am spending the holidays with my folks and boyfriend...when he's in town, which won't be often because he is usally busy during this time of year, which sucks but it is what it is. I am still having a hard time with what happened at Sandybrook on Friday. I know I live nowhere near the town and don't know anyone from there, but this whole situation is heartbreakingly sad.  I'm even having some jitters about going back to college, but I'm not going to let that stop me from going.  

Anyways, I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday :)

Take Care & God Bless
