I've been in community college since lex was a year old, majoring in psychology. My plan was to transfer in two to three years to a calstate and get my bachelors. Alexa is now six years old, and I’m still in community college. AAAAH!!! My grades have been good (well until recently), all except for math. There is ONE math course holding me back, which I keep having to drop because I know I’m failing, or I have failed. I’ve taken the course three times, which is the limit. So I’ve petitioned to take it again. It was approved the first time, but way after my registration date. So by the time I tried to add the course, the course was completely full at all times. So I took a full load of online classes that I didn’t even need. Because of my lack of motivation, I bombed them. So my gpa has lowered, and I know I need to re-do the classes, plus math. I realized online is not for me and I’d do much better actually attending class. But because of work, I can’t take a full load of classes when I actually have to attend them. This puts me at probably another full year stuck at that school. The thing is, I think I’m OVER school, which is so weird for me to say. I’m burnt out and I’m sick of being in that same school. I feel so frustrated and my anger and frustration is holding me back from enjoying the classes or doing well in them. (end vent! :tired:)
Have any of you gone to a trade school? Doing anything like that? I’m thinking about doing something like that, and going back to school later.
