Profahoben_212I fucked up last semester and got a c+....it dropped my gpa to a 3.2....so now I need a 3.8 next semester...gunna be working my ass off it looks like.
DingoSeanHaha yeah, high school was such a fucking breeze... my god.
SammyDubzEveryone in my high school complains and complains and complains about school, tests, midterms, etc.
It pisses me off so much. Honestly, if you're relatively smart and have good time management skills, HS is a joke.
Op.I finally got my shit together this year. I had a 3.0 GPA Freshman year and a 2.9 sophomore year... I have a 3.8 this semester.
Maybe I just matured a lot over summer, I'm taking chemistry, biotechnology, Algebra 2, literature, and a couple electives. So its not like I'm taking easier classes. Just thought that was strange.
Get out of school at 1:45 everyday next semester. Going to ski a ton.
Wheaty214One thing that I've learned through my two years of college is that it's incredibly important to study what interests you. If your path in life requires a college education, go to college, and absorb as much information you possibly can. Preferably information you're actually interested in learning about.
I'm dropping out after I finish this semester and moving out west to be able to rock climb more, but I'm currently majoring in photography and creative writing. I've flip flopped a few times since I started college, but you need to know that it's okay to do that. And it's okay to wait to go to college until you for sure know what you want to do.
I'm taking a year or two off, until I am able to get in-state tuition at whatever college offers both photography and creative writing. I'm okay with that. I'm going to work as much as humanly possible during the fall and winter months so I can take off all of spring and summer to go travel around the U.S and truly experience all that nature has to offer me.
It took my experiential education teacher 20 years to get his bachelor's degree. He's an incredibly cultured guy that loves life, and knows what he wants to do. He applies what he learned as a rock climbing guide and his years of traveling to the way he teaches.
But referring to the topic of your thread, I'm going to have an incredibly easy but fun semester, though finals and all that jazz have never been much of a worry to me.
I'm currently taking Black and White Film Photography(Totes thought it was a digital photography class so I had to get early birthday presents of all the equipment I need for the class, but I can't wait to learn how to shoot with a film camera and develop film), Beginning Poetry Workshop, Aerobic Conditioning, Yoga, and Intro to Experiential Education.
SkierLoganFucking stressed. Can't ski tonight because of homework and i'm starting to wonder why i'm on here.... gotta go study
GroundBeefMost hippy-dippy thing I've ever read, holy shit
Wheaty214Does it make you uncomfortable that someone is following their passions in life? If it did, maybe you should reevaluate where you're going in life...
GroundBeefK, I'll get right on that.
