I’m not too happy about it, but it is my choice. I am trying to help students here at Baker in Owosso get the interior design bachelors program put at this campus. This means I will have summer off and come back the the fall, but it will help them and I get to skip the hassle of working with the people in financial aid.
I probably will still look for work this summer, but I have to say it will be nice to have some time off. I really just wish I could move into my own place. That would make me happy, at the same time do I really want to move everything for just 6 months? I’m not sure what I’m doing yet, but we will see I guess.

I had such a bad day yesterday that I just left class after turning in half the assignment and came home. Well I didn’t plan on leaving, I was going to get food and maybe go back, but the roads sucked and it took me 2 and a half hours to get home, so I’m happy I left early.
Anyway for some reason the files for all of my projects would not let me save anything. So I couldn’t finish things or get it set up for some other things either. I didn’t even have a chance to talk to the teacher as everyone else was bugging him because they were lazy and left class after an hour there all term. I just am so mad that I spent all this time working on all of this and now I may not be able to do anything with these projects.
I can save it on my computer but it’s going to print out with student all over it and I need these projects for my portfolio and I can’t use one’s with student printed all over it. I just wish that the collage would find a way to give this program to kids that can use it at home, we pay enough to go to the dang school.
I’ll find out tomorrow how bad it is. I just couldn’t stay in class any longer last night, I hadn’t eaten for 8 hours and my sugar was really low. Times like these I hate being diabetic.

I decided today to bring my laptop to my audit with me. I have managed to get 3 chapters of notes done in about an hour and a half and I have to say I’m happy with myself. I plan on getting the other 4 chapters done tonight before I leave.
I have to say I am very happy this term is over. It’s been very hard on me and I am ready for a break. It’s not that the classes were really hard, but one teacher was just not helpful. I hope that soon I will be able to relax and be happy until I start again next month.
I think part of my problem is that I just am very, very ready to be done. I have 2 terms left and will graduate in June. I’m excited but at the same time worried about finding work and very worried about screwing up. I think I will be okay in the end though. We will just have to wait and see.

I was kidding around with my mom yesterday telling her that I should walk up to who I think stole my card and ask them if they are really that addicted. The information I have says that they downloaded something for a game and it was only $10. I don’t want to deal with the police so I’m just going to watch all my stuff from now on.
I am still thinking about that jewelry thing, but I have to get my car fixed and all of that before I decide for sure what i”m going to do. I think it would be a good thing though, my one teacher even thinks it’s a good idea.

It’s amazing what the youngest child can get away with, my little brother is home sick again from school. He claims he doesn’t feel good, but he’s eating everything in the house, playing games and running around. I think I will be having a talk with my mom tonight about making sure he goes to school tomorrow. I’m actually kind of worried about him. He wants to design video games and thinks that he won’t have to go to school for it. I also could see my step dad supporting him dropping out of school as he did when he was younger.
Some people can drop out of school and make it, my brother is not one of them. He doesn’t have any good skills, he doesn’t like to do anything and he complains a lot about work. I talked to my sisters boyfriend the other day and he even thinks it would be a bad idea, he dropped out too, but got his GED. I don’t know. I worry because I know he can do well, he just has the attitude of school doesn’t matter because it won’t help him later in life.

It looks like I should be able to get that class I need and continue with school. This means I will be done this June and have my degree. I’m excited, even though it still may mean no job for me. At least I have it and can start my own business until I can find other work. I know that sounds weird, but there is a test I want to take and you have to work under a designer who also has taken the test for 2 years before you can take it. It’s the interior design version of the Bar that lawyers take, yes it’s that important.
I am looking forward to picking out fabric and sinks for my projects again. This year I will have interior design classes, unlike last year where I took a bunch of architecture ones. I loved them, but there is a reason I’m not going into Architecture, I hate math! Hopefully it all works out, the dean is waiting to talk to the teacher today and the teacher loves me and is one of my favorites. She also knows I have to have this class, so it should be good.

I have a huge desision to make right now. Should I continue going to school for at least another year or quit before I waste more money and end up in the hospital again. The teacher I have this term for one of my classes has been the worst teacher I have ever had, worse then the one I had in high school who lost all of my assignments and failed me for it. She can not keep anything straight, she is constantly telling me something is done wrong, I fix it and she tells me it’s wrong again it needs to be done the way I did it the first time. I have never received a zero for an assignment I have done and turned in until this teacher. It seems she thinks that everyone who is not black is stupid or something. It’s a cultural diversity class that is really pointless as the book just blames all of the worlds problems on white people. It’s annoying to read and pretty much makes me feel that the world would be better if I just shot myself and all other white people. (I’m not going to, don’t worry)
Thats not the only problem, and I blogged about this next one already, but she put up links to other sites with questions related to the site that we had to write a paper on. When I used the site as a reference she gave me a zero and told me I could only use the book.
I don’t know about you but I think she’s just out to fail anyone she can. Usually I have just dealt with confusing teachers and moved on, but she is really a bad teacher. I’m trying to drop the class so at least it won’t effect my GPA, but I really am not sure i want to attend this school anymore, Baker really does not care about their students. I know other collages are like this, but they are still helpful because the know you’ll go somewhere else if they are not. Baker doesn’t transfer well to any school so they know your stuck. I’m still deciding what to do, as I have to have a bachelors degree to get a job in the interior design field, but I just am worried that all of these issues with these online teachers is going to send me back to the hospital. The only good thing is that if I can drop this class I would take it again next term along with another online class and be done with online classes.
Theres other issues too, like trying to get an independent study (part of why I’m really worried about my gpa) If I don’t get it I have to go another year.
