Two Christs era
Stiude - is students just for short title.
When I entered college, I had big dreams. That's how it is. I saw everything in a straight, perfect line. I was going to get everything from As to Bs, my professors are all going to like me.
At the start of my college years I was going to be better. I wanted validation for something, motherhood maybe, womanhood, possibly. I was not yet manifested in Christ and had no idea what future awaited me.
No one was going to tell me I couldn't make it through college.
And then life did happen. As it does for all of us. For my straight line, I now saw gaps I didn't expect to have to find a way to fill. I lost my way again and again, I was in the darkness about how aid worked. It just was not working out like I wanted. I was behind, in classes. Two years turned into three... I was pretty sure when I heard about community college by the way....I read "two years college,"
It took me three probably.
Yes, that is how long it took me to finish Community College, three if you add the breaks I definitely needed and the class I failed or needed extra credits to fulfill my first degree, I believe I had a program switch as well which is okay. I wasn't as fast as some who graduated on time. To complain about it stretching longer should not be an option for you if you really want to finish what you started.
I got stuck by math (but I learned), I got stuck by debt, I got stuck by Bio, just for the record....I'll explain this one briefly.
You see, at one point between atoms, cell structures, and cell Adhesions, my professor told me I was failing. We battled that. Together. I passed. Maybe during those exams where she saw some of us were struggling, she knew that work was hard for me at the time.
She is a doctor, so she did it already. Anyway I passed. Don't ask me how. It was a miracle. With her help. Good. Onward.
What's personally indigenous to you? Is it prayer, reading, art, music, writing, cooking, anything? everything? most things? nothing?
Like studying. That's something.
If you haven't added studying to your indigenous list, you should. We're all students of life. I can tell you that in college, no one is going to hand nothing to you. Also some professors will wait for you to have the audacity to give them shoddy work and then complain when they fail you. They already passed their stuff remember?
You are just not going to like all your professors and they are all not going to like you. I learned that one, almost asap.
If you're life line in school evaporated like mine did, the will to continue and took me forever to fix meaning longer classes and the such mixed in with indecision about where I wanted to go, remember many of us have been there and still made it.
There's a name for us. But I'm not going to say it here, you have to figure that out. The name you get when you have finished, or title. That's another list you want to get on.
Have I failed classes? YES.
I mixed my education with raising my kids, (I had help from their dad too.) But as the main caretaker, I did raise my children and go to school and had a full-time job overnight. For a good while.
Did you hear that?
That means you students have no excuses.
Are you in between wondering if you should shift to online classes? I did both.
Briefly on that.
Don't be discouraged if you have to start somewhere and end somewhere else.
My traditional classes where I drove to school were full of excitement. I met great professors, had the rich feeling of having my school peers answer questions, debate in classes, disagree, agree to disagree, discuss stuff. Being there was hectic, but now I look back, I realize how lucky I am. When you just start college you are like everyone else, you're at the 'trying to figure my life out stage.'
Being online to me, is the same way. Except you are mostly in my experience on your own. Make no mistake, if you find a reputable online school you are comfortable with, just understand that everything is just mostly online, even teachers have to use online.
So either way you are going to learn something online. Professors are strict there as well, because there is no one to help you much, you are having to figure it out on your own. And if they see that you haven't formatted your work, they will fail you. They have to match it up with their own guidelines, which means matching it up with another work, and find it wanting? Things like plagiarism (Professors don't like this much, they want your own work and effort), APA, MLA formatting, identifying sources and categorizing them chronologically or alphabetically are things you need to familiarize yourselves with, or is your work good enough to pass just like the work they are matching it up with? The same criteria that already passed elsewhere.
I have failed more classes online than I have in traditional classes just because it's easier to say I'm not going to buy the required book and think you can get away with that, which for the most part will lead you to plagiarism or not knowing what is required of you. In other words you need the books they require, rent it, buy it, it is cheaper than having to re-take the class if you fail or get caught plagiarizing. They have a quota they have to fill, and because they have to make up for not being in a traditional setting, the work can be a lot more difficult sometimes. I am for reading which arms you with knowledge.
With that said, I loved both my online and traditional classes, both can be very rewarding. I am honored to have done both and can talk about it.
There are several ways to pick a career.
1) You just pick one. And stick to it. No matter what. Do your research.
2) You let one pick you, (as the LORD and ministering picked me).
3) You do both, which is still picking one and letting one pick you.
4) You quit.
Surprisingly, that's still something. Don't beat up on yourself because its not for you. Its not for everyone and that's the truth.
5) Don't over-use yourself too much.
College is supposed to be rewarding, not stressful, strike a balance somewhere. Same for career driven individuals, high stress means quicker burn-out which helps very little.
6) Revisit your "Objective,"
I mean the reason you started. Why are you there? I wish I had revisited my objectives much more often. That's why I'm telling you. At the start of every school year or term, you need to figure out something........... Only you can decide what that is, and then you need to take one positive away from what you figured out no matter what it is even if it is a negative situation. If you think you can't find a positive out of a negative, think again, if it's a situation, their is positive charge there or you can't get a negative charge, sometimes the silver lining is buried to the point where you can't see it and you need ultra binoculars, fine spectacles or a high powered magnifying glass. Sometimes you even find the positive years later, like I did and that's still something and quite okay.
I cannot explain 1-6 much more except in my terms. Only you can find your way like I had to. Like all the others who have been where you are at. I found that my objective was to learn, to study, to fail and to find the LORD through Jesus Christ. It's not a career for me, it is my life to be and remain Holy in Christ. An objective is more like a "point" you are making.
Did you learn anything at all from this post? Are you sure?
Are you interested in what I learned at all? I'm just going to tell you anyway.
I learned way too much and not enough.
Other creds + Christ = ++Two Christs.
