Always Be Thinking

Wrong Night

Back again I am, of course! So I have some ideas I intend to put to the test starting this coming Monday, November 29 201o.

On Monday I have math classes from 11AM to 12:30PM. I am going to get the only other students’ number so I can speak to her about whether or not she would like to see about adding an extra day a week of tutoring, as opposed to just the twice a week.

I also intend on inquiring as to whether or not I can begin volunteering. I imagine this would look good on college papers and possibly good on a resume. Not to mention the benefits of knowing the staff.

After watching a documentary on people going through a much more difficult time than I, these are enduring colleges, I see that I can and will take on this so I can go onto a grand career path with even grander prospects.

I have a close friend who is about a year away from graduating to becoming a teacher, I have asked her to give me a mock writing essay so when I take the pre practice GED test I hope to be more likely for better marks.

I have been told if I score high enough on the pre tests I am allowed to take the GED tests. The only subject I have any major issues with is math, though there is science too but they seem to believe comprehension and common sense will get me through that part of the test(though this cannot be helpful with me wanting an Associates Degree of Science.).

Thus, here I am, trying to get this GED, get into college, learn to drive and attain a car, and also find a job, mind you, It is a difficult time to try and succeed in most things, and more so with not so many availabilities, though I know I am more blessed than some, that and guidance are all I can ask for.

Hello to All

How to begin this new chapter in my life? Well, I feel I owe you a few explanations before being caught up in this hish-hash.
I am up and coming in this world, finally. I have been fucking around for to long and now I reap from what I’ve sown.

Throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years I received many a visits from truancy officers. I had difficulty connecting to anyone or even being entertained.

I found that when attending classes regularly I became quite efficient in whatever subject I was faced. Then something would come up, drinking, boyfriend drama, generally fucking up my own life and, of course, not heeding any advice and falling into the clutches of the Human formed demons of this world.

Now I refuse to ponder on the past, less I do so to recognize and change something positive for the present and future.

Since I could not, DID not, finish even ninth grade I am now taking basically free GED classes at the local county’s Literacy center. I had been attending these classes before, but due to outside(horrid, male) influence, not to completion. Now I have a firm stance, almost firm, and a man to help me along.

My life has been filled with many sad, pathetic moments. I am told that when I retell some childhood story, never meaning for it to sound so, they are quite sad things. My  childhood was lonely, fearsome, dangerous, too sexually advanced, in general a normal childhood now in days.

Now I feel I may have bored you with this. I will say this, something my tutor said. “Being here for only and hour and a half allows you to take in the material, but not to get bored and have your mind start dwelling on other things.” So I finish with that, and will explain further plans in another posts.

 

Adieu
