If nothing else, the past few months have been a crazy shit show. Like I mentioned in my last post, life has been full of ups and downs. 

This week, I'm starting another up. I'll be a 29 year old college student. And holy crap am I nervous. I haven't been in school since I graduated high school in 2003 (unless you count military job training, then 2008).

I know that I can probably handle it. I know that I am able to adapt to the environment and the lifestyle (adapt and overcome, etc). I just hope that I am able to get this done. This will be a long commitment, that I know will make my life better as well as the lives of my family.

This is going to suck in its own way, but I can do this. Bloody hell I can do this (yes, I'm trying to convince myself).


Side note to the veterans who are reading: Once you get accepted to school, have your official SMART Transcript sent to the school. I did mine later than I should have (just before classes started, fortunately), but I was able to get 24 credits applied (out of the 60 needed for my AAS). I don't have to take all of the Computer 101 classes and silly low-level garbage that I'd have to for my major. Fun story about that. I bought my books on a Tuesday. On Thursday I found out about my credits being transferred over. That knocked off 3 of the 4 classes I just bought books for. I was fortunately able to return the books and get scheduled for replacement classes, since classes started less than a week later.
