DOH

I thought I had done everything for my FAFSA to be submitted, but apparently I hadn’t.  Now it is submitted and should get to DMACC.  I hope to the gods that it is not too late to get aid for summer.  I feel like an idiot.  But I got the SAR, so I assumed I was finished.  Apparently not, had to do one more review and submit.  Which is now done.

I emailed my new adviser yesterday, she replied around 10am today.  Unlike Kris who had all her ducks in row and had a cool little app for scheduling and so forth.  Whitney just said call the front desk and ask for an appointment.   She is gonna be surprised when I walk in with all my classes pre-picked and my schedule done for the next 2 1/2 years.  I have my schedule done til Fall 2019.  Whitney did suggest I go to a “You haven’t been to school in a long while” seminar thingy that DMACC hosts.  If my car is running tomorrow, I might just attend that tomorrow evening.

Oh yeah, that reminds me, I need to fill out the disability form to be able to digitally record classes.  Well, I don’t need it for summer, but will need it for Fall.  So I will worry about that then.

In case you couldn’t tell, I am really trying to do this right this time.  I’m trying to make sure everything is set, so on day 1 I know what is going on and prepared.  I do need to buy some school supplies sooner as opposed to later.  The stuff I have bought before I have either used or its lost somewhere in the mess that is our spare room.  I suppose I could clean the spare room and figure out what I have and what I need.

Heh, I don’t know if I have told Teresa what my new major(s) is.  She will be fine with it, I am sure.  It’s just basically she doesn’t care what I am doing with school.  LOL.  She still wants me to be a system administrator, which bores me to no end.  I will tell her my choice tonight, after dinner but before she starts playing World of Warcraft.  Once she starts playing WoW, she is next to impossible to talk to.

It means so much to me that she is being supportive of me doing school ONE MORE TIME.  Even if it means going into debt, if I succeed, I will get a job and pay off the loans.  If I fail, hopefully I will know BEFORE the drop date, so I won’t owe the financial aid.  I should know within the first week if I am going to be able to do this.  Yeah, my mind goes bonkers and I know almost immediately.

When I have completed 9 credit hours and 1 100level Math Class and 1 100level English class, I plan to try to get into the Honors Program.  Why?  I don’t know.  I am only planning of 2 1/2 years of school right now, not really planning on transferring to a University when I finish.  But you never know and being an Honor’s student at DMACC automatically makes you an Honor’s student at the state Universities.  Plus, it looks good on a resume.

Anxiety levels are still relatively low.  I am amazed by this face.  Previously at 2 months out, I was a quivering mass.  This time, I am just all chill.  Maybe that is a sign that I can actually do it this time.

All I know for sure is that I am going to talk to my shrink about Anxiety anyway and how it has crushed me every time I have tried to go to school.  Maybe increase my clonazepam.  Or perhaps give me something else to go with it.  Assuming I am going to need it that is.  If I stay all relaxed, then it’s all good and I won’t need anything else.

Marketing-Digital Marketing-Web Development.   With the Marketing degree and the Web Development degree, I get the Digital Marketing focus for 1 class.  So it would be stupid not to pick it up too.

Yeah, I’m gonna do it this time.  Damn my bipolar.  Damn Leukemia.  I am not what has happened to me, I am what I CHOOSE to become.-I am not what happened to me. I am what
