Just got denied from my back-up school.

Looks like this motherfucker is going to Community College.

I really regret being a fucking moron my first two years of High School. It's really biting me in the ass now...

    Keep you nose to the grindstone for a year at CC and you can easily transfer to a real school in a year.

    Yea, That's the plan. Now that I'm thinking about it, It's perfectly fine. Most of my first year at any school will be mostly General Education, and Community College is ass loads cheaper for tuition. Its way better to get my BS classes done there and then transfer.

    You pay less for the same classes that you'd be taking at any Uni...unless you're well ahead of the curve...which you aren't, so don't sweat it.

    Edit: No offense...lol

    meh. you're probably better off.

    Depending on the type of work you want to do, CC might be looked on move favourably. It's definitely the case for IT, the perception is that CC gives students more hands on experience.

    Some would argue there's even a bias against college grads in IT, with people hiring their likeness I.E. CC alumni.

    So there are two sides to the coin Paco.

    I plan on going into Cinema/Film/Video Production. In all honesty, most film work isn't about degrees and that bullshit, It's about who you know, what you know, and if you can do it. I've talked to a lot of people in the industry who have confirmed that. But a few other people do agree that a degree in Cinema is still very very useful.

    Just be careful and make sure that whatever college you plan on transferring to accepts the credits you take at community college, I have had several friends that had to retake courses because not all credits they earned in cc were transferable.

    I was incorrect. I got one more letter. It was from my goal school. This mother fucker got accepted, and was also given a $10,000 grant for every year I go to the school, up to four years.

    Sounds like life was trolling you. Well done. When do you start? The period between HS
    and college is one of the more bslissful life experiences.

    I got a second grant. This one is for 11k. These two grants are going to cover about half of my costs.

    I do feel like i'm growing up really fast. I hate the feeling that in exactly 49 days, I am going to be 18. Shit's weird. I might write something about Totse and my life in the near future. Might even do some video stuff.
