*sigh* Missed my interview for going back to school, but my advisor is a nice guy so I have a rescheduled one for December 2nd. I have to pay an admin fee of $50, which I can’t pay until the 3rd (when my SSDI check comes in). I hadn’t told Keith about this… and he found out when my advisor called on Sunday morning to confirm that I really wanted to do this, since I’d missed our first phone interview. Ooops!
I’ll be going to Colorado Tech University. Right now, I’ll be looking at the website and finishing the admissions requirements before my phone appointment on December 2, 2010 and 11am.
Well, I’m not sure my husband is supportive. I told him it wouldn’t cost any money, then I had to go and put in $50 for the admissions fee. and as far as I know, it’s not going to cost anything after that. It can’t. If it does, the process stops here. I can’t afford it. I just hope it doesn’t. I really, really, want to go back to school and get my Associates degree. I’m so close. I just wish that the school that I had graduated from in 1993, and actually been a degree school and not a certificate of completion. I then went to North Dakota to finish off my degree, and I couldn’t handle being away from home. And the kids were not helping. They partied, and they weren’t conducive to what I thought college would be. My roommate was up at all hours partying and I just had to come home. It was a mess. Add to that, she didn’t approve of me… because I was disabled. This was before the ADA.
So, I’m doing this online. At my own pace. Four courses a quarter. It will take me about a year and a half – so we’ll see how it goes.
