I have so much to write about, but somehow I haven’t had the urge. Strange for me!
Perhaps I’ll start with a school update.
I had my advising appointment yesterday morning. I went in and my adviser had not looked over my information. She said that perhaps I was in the wrong place since all my transferred credits were music oriented. I assured her that indeed I had no intention of studying music. She looked over my transferred credits and set me up with classes that would fill the university requirements as well as the requirements of my intended major. I think this is wise in case I have a mind to switch eventually. I am set up to start with an English Lit course that meets only on Wednesday evenings. I think that will be something I can more than handle! Now I just want to get started.
I then took a look to see what credits actually transferred. ALL of them!!! I had no idea that would happen. So I get to start with 41 credits, as a sophomore. I am pleased with that as well.
On to the revelation part of this post. Somehow for the last 10 years, I have had it in my head that I am a terrible student. That I can’t study, that I don’t do well in college, and that it isn’t worth my time. Imagine my surprise when I saw that I got mostly A’s and B’s with a smattering of C’s here and there! To be honest, I was floored. How could it be for the last 10 years I have been thinking that I was a poor student? This is not the transcript of a poor student. Not the best either, but not poor. I honestly believe this comes from the difference in being able to pass, and comprehension. Somehow I knew while I was learning these things that I wasn’t comprehending them fully. So when I stopped college, I assumed that meant I was a bad student and just didn’t look back! So now I am stuck rethinking what I have been sure of for the last 10 years regarding school.
