This Fall semester flew by. As quickly as classes resumed, it was time, once again, to take finals. I started out the semester taking four classes. Two classes were online and two were on campus. I had to drop one of the online courses because it was tougher than I imagined it would be. It was a history class that would be better if I had taken it on campus where I could see the professor face to face and attend lectures. I took one test in that class and got a C on it. I could have stayed in the class, but I felt it was best if I withdrew. It did not affect my GPA.
In my math class on campus I received a “C”. This was truly my hardest class and I struggled throughout. I studied for my final and did fairly well. That was the last math class I was required to take for my major. In my government class I received a “B”. This was the class that I enjoyed the most. I enjoyed attending lectures and discussing current events about politics and how our system came to be. It was definitely a class that I will remember. I liked to listen to everyone’s opinions about different subjects. Finally, in my online geology class I received an “A”. This was the easiest class by far. All I had to do was read a chapter each week, take a five question quiz on it, and then take three tests throughout, encompassing multiple chapters.
So my grades were “A, B, C”. I pretty much predicted that is what they were going to be based on my test scores in each of the classes. I will be taking the Spring semester off since I will be leaving for 5 months of training for the National Guard. Based on what happens when I return home, like get a law enforcement job or a job with the National Guard, I have not decided if I will return to school that Fall or not. I really would like to get a job and pay off my student loans that I have now first before returning to classes. That’s another adventure in itself and I will decide once I get to that point.
I’m excited school is over for the semester. I will be leaving work in a couple of weeks as well so I can enjoy the holidays with family before I leave in January. Just another semester completed in the long haul towards a degree!
