Unlucky 13

My time at university has been full of some major ups and downs.

One minute I’m doing great: getting good grades (despite being sick and in pain constantly and having to miss class because of it), working hard, understanding everything, and setting a plan for the rest of my degree.

The next I’m doing not-so-great: a professor deciding to deny me the chance to finish the course, a class that I need for my degree not being available for registration, student loans refusing to cover my last semester because I’ve taken too long for my degree (four years for a four-year degree…), and the latest drama: a course that’s required for my certificate being cancelled and pulled off the curriculum for staffing issues.

I have solved all of the problems thus far. This one will be no different – all I need to do is change to the accounting version of my certificate and I’ve already gotten all of the required courses – but it’s the principle of things. It’s so frustrating that my degree has taken twice the work and twice the stress it should have because I keep running into these oddball situations that would never happen to anyone but me.

I guess it’s good preparation for the rest of my life, since everyone has to change their plans when things go awry, but I’m tired. Here’s hoping that I’m more lucky in my job search than I was getting the qualifications for said jobs.

  1. Sorry you have been having difficulty lately. Four years for a four year degree sounds right to me. Perhaps that’s not what you meant to say? Either way, it doesn’t matter how long it takes. What matters is that you did it! I hope you get everything all worked out soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Surprisingly, that’s -exactly- what I meant to say! I started classes in September 2010, which makes this my fourth year. They just felt like I took a semester too long, I guess. Thanks for the encouragement! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Yes girl -That’s life. So glad you pushed through, put your big girl panties on and handled your business. Your’e my kind of lady! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love your blog!
