As the Christmas season descends upon us yet again, I just want to touch base with everyone since I have been busy with school and other things to fire off this little post here. Earlier this month, I have completed my first semester as a college student at HCCC. And as it turns out, I did really good. I ended the semester with two A’s and two B’s. So my GPA to date is currently standing at 3.49. Not bad for an old guy who’s been out of school for fourteen years now, eh?
So basically, I am free until January 23, which is the start of the second semester. I am still set to the four class roster that I had last semester, but I actually have classes on all five days. I have two on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday but only one class on Wednesday. I am gonna be taking Audio Production, Advertising, and Computer Applications as well as a gym class so I can gain access to the Fitness Center up there.
I am rapidly trying to get back in shape considering that I missed about a whole month because I got a cold back in October that lasted about a couple of weeks. So I am basically trying to get back into the game here, especially with the new year right around the corner. Gotta get back in shape.
And it also looks like I might be getting a laptop just in time for next semester. It should also help me out when it comes time to get back to my Internet activities, most notably my YouTubing. I am hoping that I can get new equipment and hopefully get back to making videos possibly by early 2012. I have a whole slew of ideas and I am just waiting to try them all out.
Since I probably won’t be back online until Tuesday, I just want to take the opportunity right now to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
Well, it’s been a while since I was last here so I figure I’d come back and reconnect with everyone. The last time I posted, I was just starting college and now I have just made it through the middle of the semester. So far I am happy to report that things have been going really well. I am doing well in all of my classes. I’m actually starting to feel like a college student.
One of the things I found out is that there is always something to do on campus. Not a day goes by that there isn’t something going on while I am on campus. I also have found the time practically every day to go to the gym there being that I have access. Unfortunately, since I am not a gym student (at least not this semester,) I can’t use their nice fitness center. However, I do have access to their weight room (which looks like a power lifter’s gym) and that is pretty awesome. I also have access to their track where I can walk around and stuff. That’s pretty awesome.
They also show movies here, mainly movies that are fresh out of the theater yet have not found their way to DVD. And it’s free too. That’s really awesome. I actually saw a movie on campus during Fall Fest (A Place in the Sun) and I am planning to go tonight since I am on vacation from work again. Tonight I am going to see both “Hangover” movies. I have never seen the original “Hangover” and since they’re both playing tonight, I figure that now would be as good a time as any to go see it.
However, there is a bit of a downside, mainly in the social department. I found that being a 33-year-old man in a crowd of students who are 15 years younger than you actually feels a bit awkward. Yet I’m trying to make the best of it like I do any situation. It’s still kinda hard I gotta admit.
But all in all, I am still glad I made the decision to go back to school while I still can, mainly because I’m sick of being stuck in neutral. It’s actually time to make something of myself and move forward. I will continue to keep you posted on any new developments.
