FREEEEEDOM!

So very thankful that finals are over! Now for my senior 1.5 years of college!

The fact that for my debate, which is in place for our final, in Macroeconomics today my group was assigned to be Pro Gun Ban when we live in the South (Georgia of all places) and we WON the debate is freaking mind blowing!!!

It looks like I was actually being productive at that time! Haha #studying #outside #blanket #college 
The fact that I studied my entire Sunday!

The moment you discover that there is a law in all schools if the teacher does not appear in the first 15 minutes of class, you can leave the class.

THE WORLD MUST KNOW.

GET THE WORD OUT, GUYS.

HOW CAN U NOT KNOW THIS? U HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY TIMES WE HAVE USED THIS BEFORE!

At my university if the professor has a Doctorate in what they are teaching you it’s 15 minutes into class that you can leave and they can’t mark you as absent.

If they don’t have a Doctorate in what they’re teaching then we can leave after 10 minutes! :D

I am so tired of school right now, but I am more tired of everyone around me at school asking me to help them with different school work. I mean, I help them because I understand it a little better than they do(otherwise they would not be asking for my assistance!), but that takes away from my own time of understanding more of the material.

So college stuff,

I got accepted to Georgia Tech when I was in high school, but I got accepted to their program based in Savannah and that was going to cost Tuition and Fees at $2,771.60 and housing at average $3000 plus a meal plan of $800-$2000. This would put me somewhere around $7000 just for ONE semester. I had the Hope Scholarship then which pays 90% of tuition and fees, but no housing or books. BOOKS! Who knows how much my books would have added on to that.

So instead of spending all of this money I went to Augusta State University which is like 30-40 minutes from either of my houses living with my parents. This puts me at only about $2,650 a semester and I don’t have to pay housing or meal plans. This school has a pre-engineering section that has me getting the same thing done that I would have in Savannah. OBVIOUSLY this is the more wise choice with all of the money that I saved!

Which is VERY VERY VERY important. My dad pays half of my tuition&fees and books. My mom was SUPPOSED to pay the other half, but she never thought it through and has no money to do so. So instead I am paying half of everything. This is why cost is SO IMPORTANT. I only work part time and right now it is SOLELY to pay for college and my car insurance and upkeep and gas.

I didn’t take my classes as seriously as I should have the first two semesters and lost my Hope Scholarship that payed 90% because my GPA fell below a 3.0, luckily however it is only at a 2.78 after slacking off! I’ve done all of the math. I’m taking 5 classes this semester. Two of them are 3 credit hour classes and three of them are 4 credit hour classes. If I make A’s in the 3 cr. hr classes and B’s in the 4 cr. hr classes my GPA will be exactly a 3.0! This is very exciting, but more importantly my goal this semester is to get straight A’s regardless to these being harder classes. This would bring my GPA up to a 3.26!! Which is definitely very good!

To regain the HOPE scholarship I simply need to have my GPA at at least a 3.0 by the end of Spring semester. So if I get my GPA to a 3.26 I simply need to maintain that. AND I was so sad when my GPA was at a 2.78 at the end of last year because I felt like I had lost all hope of being able to go to Georgia Tech like I originally intended, but for my degree of Civil Engineering you only need a GPA of at least a 3.0 to transfer and I looked at the Core Requirements that GT requires for a transfer student and after this current Fall Semester I will actually have all of the Required AND Recommended classes completed and all of the credits are transferable from my school to theirs!

Georgia Tech is VERY expensive so if I could be allowed to transfer to Georgia Tech AND get my Hope Scholarship back at the same time I would probably be the happiest person ever.

As long as I focus on my schoolwork this year more than ever Georgia Tech is still very much a possibility for me which makes me so happy.

Tomorrow is the first day of Fall Semester. Why. I don’t want to go, yet I want it at the same time.

Look at this madness.

It’s such a beautiful thing! Thank you for saving me so much money you beautiful people you! :D I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS SITE TO EVERY PERSON LIVING THAT IS A COLLEGE STUDENT! (:

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!

CSCI2060 was the only class that I absolutely NEEDED this semester and there was only one and all the seniors and juniors got it before I could even register, but they opened up a second one!

I GET TO TAKE ALL OF MY CLASSES THIS SEMESTER!! I AM SO HAPPY!! :)

It is now almost 4 am,

I accidentally took a 2 hour nap at midnight haha

BUT I FINISHED MY RESEARCH PAPER!!! Weeeeeew!

This is very important because it’s due today. Also, I have to wake up in… 4 and a half hours? I think I shall watch The Office anyways! I finally made it to Season 3 yesterday! haha

OH! And after I turn this lit paper in tomorrow, which is the last day of that class, I NEVER HAVE TO TAKE LIT AGAIN! So incredibly happy about that! :D

3 hours to do my calc 2 written assignment and 4 hours to almost completely finish my research paper,

It’s all cool college, I don’t need sleep. If you could see the sarcastic thumbs up I just did at my screen, you would understand.

My next semester I will have 18 credit hours,

I am prepared to die of an overload.

BUT I GOT DIS CHIT YO!

I’m so bored, I don’t have lab until 3. And its really bright outside, it’s blinding.

FUCK ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHIES!

We started working on this at 10:30 last night, it’s now almost 5 in the morning and they’re just now almost being finished. I hate these with a passion.

It’s taken a 2 liter of mountain dew, cookies, brownies, and shrimp stir fry to stay awake for this. Nice college, nice.

I LOVE FOOD.
