Do you ever get that feeling? You know, that you might be in the wrong place? I’m talking about where you live. It just doesn’t seem like where you’re at- you’re not getting anywhere, zero to little progress in life. Maybe you feel stalled or like you’re treading water. The wheels are spinning but you’re not moving forward.
That’s about how I feel this passed week. At least, since that phone call telling me that the class I signed up for was pulled from the schedule. The class I really wanted was full, in all slots. To make things mushy, I took a more in depth look at the catalog for the school I plan to transfer to (another community college) and saved for 2 or 3 classes- they have what I’m looking for. Kirkwood even has a much larger selection of courses in creative writing. WITCC has one.
This leads me to feeling like I’m at the wrong school! Save for those few classes.
I have 18 transferable credits to date. I need 64 / 65 to earn my Associates of Arts – English degree.
With things as they are it seems to make sense that I move across state for Kirkwood. I’m going to shoot for the courses I need that WIT has / Kirkwood doesn’t, Then, save my money for the move East to the Cedar Rapids area.
This is assuming the classes are / will be on schedule with openings.
HUM 101 Intro to Humanities
SOC 250 Sociology of Deviance
And I need to repeat
LIT 101 Introduction to Lit
Creative writing- science fiction is not taught at either school
Hopefully this will be the last time I need to adjust / change my plans.
