This school thing isn’t that easy……..

WOW! I am amazed at my grades for the midterm! I am actually making grades that I made in high school when I thought friends and food were more important. The only thing is I haven’t had much of a social life since July, or sleep for that fact, and I have spent many many many hours on homework and so far I’m only doing good in one class out of 5 (and it isn’t this class!).

I was warned it was going to be hard. Now that my job is over I am hoping I can redeem myself a bit in the second part of the semester. It’s hard to wake up at 5:15am, after only having about 2-5 hours sleep, work a full day and then pray to God you have done enough homework the night before to get by and then get home after 10:00pm knowing sleep is nowhere in the scenario any time soon.

It’s been a full week since my job has been over and I don’t see how I was getting my homework done before but now know why I have the grades I have. There is such a difference from community colleges to Universities. Before I could take 16 hours of school and still work full time and pull A’s in all my classes. Now…things aren’t so easy. And I can’t say why things are so much tougher from one to the other. It isn’t like community colleges are getting you preemted for Universities because if they were then things would be a lot different!!!! (or if they are then the community colleges need to step it up a couple levels)

So here I am praying to God that I am able to save myself a bit so that my GPA doesn’t hit rock bottom by the end of the semester.
