I am able to see the finish line of this semester. Whew! Two more weeks of school left and then...drum roll, please...I start my final semester! I did college quite unconventionally and it worked out better than I thought. I started college at 15 and went full time. (My college advisor was shocked and actually upset that I did it. He kept giving me the "you must not have a social life because all you do is school" speech. Imagine that, someone telling you NOT to do so much school!) I took about 4 months off and then started at a 4 year school. I crammed (and I mean crammed) two years of classes into one year and saved money and time by graduating early. I've met a couple of people who are trying to do this and it seems to really be catching on with certain students. On the other hand, I ran into a girl at school last semester who was in her sixth year of college. She said she was staying for one more semester because she loved the college's football games so much. I kid you not. I can appreciate college football (sort of!) but to stay in school for football seems kind of crazy. Maybe it's me.
I got my schedule set for spring. Classes look like: Article and Essay Workshop, Senior Seminar in Lit, a humanities elective, Modern British Novel and a communication elective.
Today's project: study for finals and find a teen counselor to give me quotes for an article.
Tomorrow: Harper finalists are announced! Cross your fingers!
