I’m university now, and while philosophy isn’t my major, I’ve decided to minor in philosophy – and I’m loving it! I almost wish I could major in it, but I don’t think it’s practical enough. But I’m glad I decided to take a philosophy class in highschool to discover how much I enjoyed it and was interested in it… so far my two philosophy classes this year are my favourites!
I’m marking this as complete instead of “given up” since I’m still technically studying it!
Woohoo!! I’ve been accepted into my first choice for university!! I start this Fall. Now all what I need to do in order to complete this goal is WAIT.
That, and try to muster up as much financial aid as I can beforehand! I’ve applied to three scholarships so far. I have great marks, but I’m not sure how many scholarships I’ll be eligible for since I’ve been attending an adult high school that allowed you to do credits at your own pace (so I’m technically not full-time, I guess). I need to finish up my letters in order to apply to some bursaries, though – hopefully I can make my case clearly and passionately enough in order to win some of them. Only time will tell!!
I’m going to university this year? AWESOME!! ;)
With high school finished, I can now put my energy towards achieving my next big goal – completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I’ve been accepted into university for this Fall, and I’ve been going through the motions of trying to apply for scholarships, bursaries, and financial aid.
I’m nervous, but I’ve already proven to myself that I can accomplish huge dreams. I never thought that I would feel the way I do now in life, in terms of being able to cope much better with my depression. I never thought that I would be able to finish my high school – to actually go back and sit through the daily grind of doing all of the work that was needed of me.
It’s time to focus on university. It’s going to be hard, but I have a foundation of success and support behind me. I can do this!
