I know I need to get into college. I'm trying. I am really, really trying. But when I can't get the school to process my financial aid paperwork until it's too late to register for the full semester and I'm limited to just the half-semester classes that don't start for nearly two months, I get a little frustrated.
I would like to get involved in campus activities and utilize the library so I can study up for classes before I take them, but a student ID is required for those privileges and I can't get an ID until I'm actually taking classes. I also cannot get a student bus pass without a student ID. This makes me more frustrated.
On the bright side, I'm lined up for training at work so I can be eligible for more hours. This is a very good, very desirable thing.
I come from a very overweight family and I always thought I was doomed to be fat. Now I can flex the beginnings of abs. It is amazing to flex and feel something firm in my midsection. I never thought I would ever even come this close! I'm really excited!
