Today was a busy day. I got a loaner car from the place where my car is in the shop, so I drove around doing the things I do normally over the course of a week. Dang, I do a lot more than I thought I do.
The big thing of the day was meeting my new adviser and getting all my ducks in a row with her. Whitney was a cute tiny little thing, but full of excitement and impressed that I had my schedule tentatively worked out for the next 2 1/2 years. She is my Marketing adviser. She is my Digital Marketing adviser. She is not a Web Development adviser, but she gave me the info anyway.
She showed me a cool tool that they have in the web info systems for DMACC. It shows you your program and what you have taken, but more importantly it shows you the classes you have to take and when you click the class, it tells you about it and then shows you the planned times its going to be offered in the next 3 years. So, I click on Econ 120 and it shows every semester for the next 3 years. But if I click on Web Development 466 it shows its only offered every other Spring. So, I am gonna take my proposed schedule and get to work matching those classes up where they need to be.
At 5 minutes til 1, I went to go get my Student ID. They are supposed to close at 1. I got a little turned around, didn’t get there until right at 1 and the place was empty. Security guard there said I missed them by about 10 seconds. Grrr, now next week I make ANOTHER trip to Ankeny to get a picture taken for my OneCard ID. I had one in 2015, but I have since lost that and they went to a new company anyway.
I am waiting for Financial Aid to tell me what I need to supply them so I can get student loans for this summer, and for fall too. Hoping its all soon so I can buy the books I need ahead of time.
53 days before classes start and I am still not really stressing about school. I have another big stressor that is going on that I won’t talk about, but school is just something happening in 53 days and it’s cool.
I’m going to do this. I am going to make this happen. I am due some good things to happen, why can’t it be school?
