I spent the entire day Monday working on my Chemistry 203 class, trying to catch up. At the end of the day, I was still not caught up. I was two lab write-ups behind, and had tanked 2 of the 3 first quizzes. I came to the realization that it would be better to drop the class and retake it next semester when I was better prepared for it.
I ate the money I paid for the class-- since its a city college, it's not as much as a lot of other schools would be, but its not insignificant. Still, the class served as a great brush-up for the trigonometry, calculus, quadratic equations, etc. that I'll need for the next go-around of this class.
In the meantime, I still have my English 101 class, which I'm enjoying a lot. It'll also let me get ahead financially-- I'd had to take a lot of days off trying to get caught up with the class. It'll allow me to get caught up with some stuff around the house. And mostly it'll help me get caught up mentally and emotionally. It's been a busy, and sometimes emotional last few years. I need a breather.
