When I set out on this journey, I kind of jokingly said I was trying to make the Dean's List, but that was before I realized what I was getting myself into with precalculus.
So, I made two As, a B+, and, well, let's just say I passed precalculus and never have to worry about trig functions again. The B+ really should have been an A, but I missed a project deadline in one class when I had COVID, so there wasn't much I could do about that.
But I'm proud of what I did accomplish — and not just my grades, but the many life lessons I've learned over the last few months. I also received some great compliments, encouragement, and advice from two of my professors at the end of the semester (one of whom was actually my math teacher, belive it or not). Both of them encouraged me to go in totally opposite directions with my life, but that's okay. It's nice to know I've got options.
I'm still signed up for a couple of classes this summer, and if you asked me a few weeks ago, I would have told you I was going to drop them, but now I'm not so sure. One really interests me, so I may keep it at least. I have a few weeks to decide. I do enjoy school. I just don't want it to take over my entire life.
Anyway, this concludes my journey through attempting to be a full-time student again. Thanks for hanging in there with me. May we never do it again.
