Well, Teresa hasn’t said No to me going to school. Lack of no means I am treating it as a yes. I will be starting school hopefully in May.
Which will have my terms going May-Oct, Nov-April. I can handle that setup.
Have been trying to do my FAFSA to get student loans but the link to the IRS to pull tax info for the FAFSA is down for maintenance… for 3 days now.
Its all good though, I talk to Kelsey, my enrollment counselor tomorrow at 2:40 or was it 2:45, oh well, doesn’t matter 5 minutes, I will just be sitting on my butt anyway.
Tomorrow I will also be filling out my application for admission, WGU gave me a code to wave the 65 dollar fee that normally is required. That was mighty nice of them.
I have decided I am going for a BS in IT-Security. It was that or Software Development. I thought about it, and I don’t see myself as a programmer. Sitting at a desk for 8+ hours a day sifting thru code would probably drive me more insane. Cyber Security really interests me. So that is where I am gonna go with this.
If things go as planned, I should graduate in 2021. Heh, I didn’t think I would live that long. Leukemia odds are very against it, but hey, I am doing well there.
Anyway, I hope to get my FAFSA done today or tomorrow. I may have to fill out the tax info myself (with help from my mom) on the FAFSA. And hoping I get my application in tomorrow. And I hope I get all my ducks in a row so I can get started in May… application, acceptance, financial aid, orientation class, all of it.
I will be exceptionally happy if I can pull this off. Not just getting set up to start in May… I am talking the whole thing. Finally getting a degree. Despite everything that has put this off for oh so many years. I think it might actually happen this time. And if it does, I will traipse all the way to Utah to walk in the graduation ceremony. LOL. Make my mom proud.
