|First week of college
||[Jan. 13th, 2006|01:52 pm]
Monday and Wednesday were my first days of college. :) It felt surreal to be on a school campus again, but in a good way.|
My only fear is completing the myriad of writing assignments/essays for all my classes, especially English. I'm not a very good writer, especially when you have to *think* of a topic, rather than letting it come to *you* on its own time. My teachers are decent, though.
Yesterday when talking with a co-worker, I found out she got the full Pell Grant because she has a child. Obviously I have a child too, but when filling out the FAFSA originally, I didn't include her because I don't provide "50% or more of financial support" for her. I couldn't bring myself to lie about it. For spring and summer, my grant will probably only amount to $400-500 (due to less-than full-time enrollment and having missed the fall semester). I did end up getting the full award for subsidized loans... but as we all know, grants are better. :(
It seems the trend for college students is to major in Pharmacy. I feel like such a loser for what i'm majoring in (Political Science/International Relations, and such). :(
