My first term of college was successful! I work full time and I took 4 classes this term, which was a mistake, and I will not be repeating that! I took Introduction to Business, Word I, Business Editing I, and Fundamentals of Writing (aka Writing 90, two levels from Composition writing). I got an A in Business, a B in Word, a C in Editing (which was hard, there was a lot of memorization, and I am happy to have gotten that C!), and a Pass in Writing, which would have been an A if I'd gotten a letter grade for it. The percentage was 93%. My writing teacher gave me a pass to jump right into Composition writing, which is 121. I don't have to placement test or anything! The total GPA for the term is 3.1. That's way better than anything I ever did in high school. I hated school then and just did what I had to do to pass. Unless it was one of my computer classes, that's the only place I enjoyed it.

Winter term begins January 5, and I will be just taking two classes. Business Laws I and Human Relations in Business. I'm looking forward to these classes, because I am going to go into Human Relations at work. HR has been my goal for the last few years. I always talked about it, but never went forward to try and complete anything. But now I am going to! Spring term I will be taking the writing 121 class. They say it's a big workload, so I'll just take that and probably the followup class to my Business Laws class.

Work is ridiculous and I am glad the holidays are over in less than two weeks. I am going to the Wizard Comic Book Convention at the end of January, and I'm really excited to go. It's my first con and I got the VIP pass to see Stephen Amell. A friend at work also got a VIP pass and we are going together!

Flash, Arrow, and Agents of SHIELD are all that get me through my TV these days. I did find out I will be definitely watching the Supergirl show next fall! I was already going to, but now, I have even more amazing news about it. Everyone knows that Jimmy Olsen is my favorite DC character. Well, he's going to be one of the main 4 supporting characters in it!! I am beyond the moon. And TNT's Titans will be amazing, too. Dick Grayson is one of the best superheroes.

My last post was about how I did my financial aid, but now I actually did something about it! I enrolled in a class! Part of the two year program. Class starts on June 23rd and it's a General Accounting I class. I haven't been this scared before.

I always talk about wanting to do change in my life, but I never follow through with it. Well today, I did it! I went and took my placement testing over at the community college. I gave them the rest of the stuff they needed for my financial aid paperwork. I'm either going to start taking classes in the summer or the fall, I'm undecided right now. We'll see!

But I finally started it. So now I can't say I just try. I actually did something about it!
