School thing

Well, I've started it. I've contacted PSU's World Campus. They are in the process of doing a degree audit for me. I'm hoping that most of my general education credits are already done. I will hear back from them soon via email. It's too late to start this spring (financial aid) but I should have no problems starting this coming summer.

OMG am I freaking out. I don't know why, but I'm all jittery. On one hand, it's a simple, small step with no real danger associated with it. On the other hand, it's what leads up to big things that I can potentially fuck up. *deep breath*

I've settled on the IST degree. I'm just hoping that my hands and wrists are up to it.

ungh. I think I'm going to go be sick now....

Well, I got my degree audit back. Aside from English 202, I have all the general education credits (plus some =) done. All that's left are the major prescribed classes. All in all, there are 40 credits that I need for the IST major according to the audit. However, I have to have had 60 within the last 5 years. I think (if I'm understanding this correctly) I'm going to have to take 5 extra classes just so that I hit the 60 credit mark for graduation. I'm not entirely clear on the difference between the Associates degree (from the hyperlink) and the Bachelors that I intend on getting. I *think* it's more 4 or 5 extra 400+ level classes that I need to take.

Just a random thought for me to think about, but I wonder if those extra classes I need to take would be enough for a minor in something. I'll have to explore that more later when I'm not feeling overwhelmed by the whole process....

Tomorrow we're taking both Havoc and 1/2&1/2 to get fixed in the morning, then I have my appointment with Amanda in the afternoon, then we have to pick up the cats from the vet, so I won't be able to actually do anything about classes tomorrow, but sometime, before the end of the week, I hope to scrape together my $20 and re-enroll at PSU. Definitely summer session classes. *gulp*

I also talked to my mom for about an hour today. It was actually really good talking with her. I got to catch up on what's been going on in her life (glossy overview). I miss my mom. Things have been rough for both of us both separately and together, but in the end, she's my mom. If that makes any sense. It's hard to believe that she's 60. 60!!!!OMG where has time gone??

hugs and love to you all. I don't tell each of you often enough how much you mean to me. You guys are what keeps me going most of the time. Thanks for being there.
