Holy shit, by some twist of fate not only did I pass my finals, but I was also able to pass my classes as well. Got a C in both classes, talk about cutting it close. Well, With that out of the way I won’t have to worry about school till the end of the month since I’ll be on break till then. Gotta have all my fun now that way I don’t have a repeat of the Fall semester during Spring.
Every time I have school work due on a certain date I do everything but that school work. For example, I have a coding assignment that was due today but due to me (and a bunch of other students in the class) not understanding how to do the freaking code I didn’t get it done, didn’t help that I waited till the last minute to do it. So instead of trying to get it done as soon as possible(ideally tomorrow since its -10% every day its late) I’m here surfing the web & catching up on thesurvivor2299 website(please be real). Even happens with exams as well, I know I should study but I never do, instead I watch tv or some other pointless shit that can wait till I finished my test, which leads to me failing the test. Cause of this I’m having an awful first semester at Brooklyn College, and I’m ashamed of it as well, its not like I’m a full time worker, hell, I’m only taking two classes this semester and I’m STILL failing. I know I can do better, in my other college I was a pretty good student, above average, and I took like 5-6 classes every semester. I’m not expecting a 4 year school to be the same as a 2 year but for god’s sake I shouldn’t be doing this bad. Really gotta get my shit together, especially now since I’m paying for school.
Today I got both good and bad news in the mail. Good news, I got into RIT! Exciting isn’t it? Finally my ticket out of this place. But, knowing my life there’s always a catch. The catch this time was that yes I did get into RIT, but I can’t go for Game Design & Development because the program is full or some mumbo jumbo, instead the letter says to contact them so I can choose a different major. Whats the point in going if I can’t go for what I want to do? Plus on top of that, I was looking up scholarships to help reduce the cost of the school and I can’t get any of them. So not only can I not go for what I want, but I also can’t get a scholarship to afford it if I do decide to go for a different major. Did I forget to mention that all the CUNY schools I applied to have a wrong social security number(a mistake on THEIR part since I have a copy of my application which has my actual social security) that I still haven’t gotten fixed because their office is only open Monday through Thursday? Damn man, I was really looking forward to getting out of this place, but doesn’t look like that’s happening anytime soon. I suppose I should be a little happy that they’re at least giving me the opportunity to go but with a different major, unlike NYU which just flat out rejected me. I’m feeling really down, man. Just once I wish things would go my way.
