The Summer semester thing starts in May - I was a little late for the Spring, which ended not too long ago I think. Or will soon. I don't know the dates exactly. :PCialbi wrote:What, it took you that long?Nubhorns wrote:I finally finished planning for College.
If everything goes well, I'll be starting in May. :) I'm getting a certificate for a Crime Scene Technician - pretty much CSI, although I'll be doing more marking evidence/taking photos/testifying than actual investigating. I have a feeling that I'm really going to enjoy it.
Also I'm talking to that Guy I Like(TM) more often and that makes me incredibly happy.
I kid; you're probably better prepared right now then I was about half a year ago when I began college, and I have yet to fill out my 2010-2011 FAFSA (I'm going to probably devote Spring Break to that, since I'm toast without FAFSA grants). So, this going to be a technical college? Also, May seems like an odd month to start school, but then again I'm attending a traditional 4-year university.
You may want to find a chance to spend some time with "Guy I Like(TM)" once he's done with finals and before you begin school. His life should be a lot more relaxed right after finals.
The certificate takes the place of a diploma while leaving me the ability to go back and get a diploma wherever. I don't know the details because my mom basically walked me through the whole thing, but the certificates set you up for specific things that are in demand now, so it's very nearly a guaranteed job with the state/local police force. :) With any luck when I finish the classes(which will take about a year, possibly less - rather than a diploma, which would be...four years? I think?) they'll give me the option to go somewhere else - that means I'd be out of a house, but on the flip side they could send me to Jacksonville and then I'd be closer to That Guy. :D (That's vastly unrealistic, I know.)
And I will find more time to spend with him, definitely. He lives in Jacksonville which is a day's drive away from me, so I've been trying to plan something, but time spent with him is sort of limited to a few hours before he has to go home. Last time he showed up around 10 and had to leave around 5, so I'm trying to plan accordingly. Most of it was spent being lost and driving around, though. :P My house is kind of lackluster and the dog doesn't know him well enough to not yell at him, but the town is so...boring. I think we did all of the fun things last time he came over, but I feel sort of silly asking if I can go down there to visit him instead.
