So I know it’s a bit early, since I can’t even register for classes yet, but I’ve decided to go back to college. If you know me, you know this is a big decision. I dropped out of college after 2 unsuccesfull semesters and then went to Cosmetology School (two years later) but have since dropped out. Yes, I’m a “Beauty School Drop Out.” Please don’t remind me its’ incredibly depressing. I’d love to be in Cosmetology School completing my hours but since I don’t have thousands and thousands of dollars, I’m settling on going back to a few semesters of college at a couple hundred bucks a piece. I’m looking at the Truckee Meadows Community College course catalog. I’m going to take the ENG 090 course that the Accuplacer put me in way back in 2004 (I didn’t take Math, English or Science my Senior year of High School so I have to take under 100 level classes in those areas before they actually count). Here are some of the other courses I am interested in. I’m either going to take one or two aside from my English course. HUM 105 - The Art of Film HUM 106 - Intro to The American Motion Picture HUM 271 - Film & Literature AM 145 - American Sign Language* ART 100 - Visual Foundations ART 101 - Drawing 1 ART 106 - Jewerly 1* ART 135 - Intro to Photography* JOUR 101 - Critical Ananlysis of Mass Media MUS 125 - History of Rock Music* PSY 101 - Principles of Psychology* (I’ve already taken this class and failed because I didn’t do my final project, I’m such a bad girl) SOC 101 - Principles of Sociology THTR 105 - Intro to Acting 1 THTR 108 Intro to Playwriting* THTR 112 Beginning Singing for The Actor WMST 101 Intro to Women’s Studies.* The courses with the asterisk are the ones I’m leaning towards, but this is just looking, I don’t know what days these courses or offered and since I’ll have to use my mom’s car, time/dates of classes will be a big deciding factor.
Lately I’ve been stressing out so BAD about my future. I just turned 23. I know that’s really young still, but I can’t help but wishing I had accomplished more. This is what I need to get out of. Stop thinking about the past and think about the future. Anthony (my boyfriend) told me to think of where I want to be in 5 years. At the time I was down in the dumps and I told him I didn’t want to because it made me depressed. Ever since then I’ve been thinking a lot about it and I’d like to post a list here, where/what I’d like to do/be doing in the next 5 years.
- A Licensed Cosmetologist (in Nevada and California at least).
- Have a successful internet (or otherwise) business selling he jewelry I make and other things.
- Out of all the credit debt I’m in now.
- Living somewhere else than Nevada.
- Financially stable.
This isn’t too much but it’s all I can think of now.
