Growing Up

A lot has happened in the past few weeks. For starters, I no longer work at the Anniston Army Depot, so my second job has become my only job! I resigned last Monday, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I'm getting back control of my life, and I'm making things happen. I'm enrolled in Gadsden State Community College, and right now I will be taking English 101, US History I, Music Appreciation 101, Speech 106, Orientation 101, and Math 098. I'm taking 16 credit hours, but only 12 will actually count for anything. I'm going to take more next semester though. That math is a remedial course...OHHH I HATE MATH!! My ultimate goal is to get into The University of Alabama. I want to live the college life! I grew up around the campus, and the school amazes me! I want to transfer in the fall of 2009, so that I can work toward a degree in advertising. Everything is achievable, I just have to make moves, and make it happen. I'm getting focused though. I want ALL A's...No exceptions. I did HORRIBLE in high school, and I KNOW I can do so much better. All I have to do is study, and actually put forth the effort, and I'm willing to sweat for the A's. I got some major plans, and its time to get the ball rolling. If I would have stayed at the depot, I'd still be banging on stuff with a hammer, with no real purpose. God has bigger plans for me. I took a major pay cut, but its going to be alright. I got a pell grant, and that should cover enough. I'm going to save as much as possible before I transfer, even if its not to UA.
