Here's a summary of my first semester back in college (after a 27 year break).
Two weeks into the 16 week semester, I tripped and fell, TWICE, in the exact same spot. I stubbed my toe. Crazy, right? The second time...
I broke my arm. Yeah. I still can't believe it. The cast went from my fingers to my arm pit. Not very handy when you're taking mostly computer classes (with a LOT of typing) and needing to drive a 90 mile round trip every day.
As for the driving, I hired a chauffeur...Medium J. He was a huge help to me and a good sport as he would sit for 8 (boring) hours waiting on me to finish for the day so we could travel back home.
It was also a time of great trial when it came to "getting ready" in the morning. I had to dress up for my classes and my job at college. You see, I got an office job there to help pay for driving expenses. I utilized Small T's skills with makeup and hair to the utmost during this time. I'm so glad she was still around and not off to college herself.
I applied for, and received, a scholarship for non-traditional students. Yay! The lovely lady in the photo with me is my scholarship sponsor.
Then it came time for FINALS. It was SCARY. I think it was the "unknown" aspect of what I would be facing, that scared me the most.
In Presentation Skills with MS PowerPoint, you had to pass a pre-test with a score of 700 to take the final. I passed the pretest with an 825 and the final with a 944. At the beginning of the semester, this class was the one I was most worried about.
After all the finals were over, this is what my grade report looked like. I worked really hard for all those A's!
I think I also lost my mind a bit too. This is what I looked like on the last day of finals. lol I think I was just trying to hold it all together at that point.
Because I was tired....just tired. I love this photo.
And I felt like celebrating because I made it through those first 16 weeks!
And now it was vacation time. Four whole weeks of it. After a couple of days though, the boredom set in. *sigh* I have 11 more days of vacation left and then it's back to school.
I hope you enjoyed my little presentation on the first semester of college. I wonder what the second semester will bring?
