I don’t mean to get to ahead of myself but the prospect of zooming through this boot camp and my independent study course has been encouraging. So much so that I’m visualizing in my head the idea of my first house, car, real job and even graduating from Tech. With the latter I’m trying to graduate in the next 2 years, but that’ll require me to take a s**t load of credits this summer in community college to transfer over and take 18 hours for 3 out of the last 4 semesters at school. Realistically I’m still looking at 2 1/2 years, but we shall see. If I’m medicated at the right dosage I can do it, but I’m scared my stuff will take so long that this semester coming up will be a mediocre one at best. I earned a 3.0 this past fall and while I know that’s good, ever since achieving such a high GPA at my last school, I’ve set the bar for what’s “okay” and what’s “good” and I demand more from myself. Perhaps I’m being too hard on myself, but I know I must separate myself from the crowd as much as possible and I’m hell bent on doing so. As for the idea of a house, a car and a real career/job some place, it just gets me super happy and almost so that I get teary eyed, I’ve worked so f*****g hard for this and if you’ve seen where I’ve come from to get here, it’s all within my grasp, not some pipedream, I legit got this s**t.
