Hello, my lovelies!
It has been awhile since I have last posted, hasn’t it?
I have been a bit M.I.A. Funny, M.I.A… Mia? You get it? Yeah? No? Okay!

It’s time to catch everyone up to date with my life! I finally obtained my G.E.D. and I have recently started going to Community College. I am finally back in school! I am thrilled to be learning again. It is such an amazing experience, especially since I haven’t been to school in ages. I took an assessment test and before it asked all the questions in math and English… It asked me “when was the last time you attended school?”  Bruh. I had to think about it. It has been exactly ten years since I last attended an actual school. Crazy! I am actually enjoying going to classes, meeting new people, and walking around a crazily beautiful campus. My professors are super amazing. The teaching styles and how they actually want their students to succeed are definitely wonderful! I really love two of my professors by the name’s Larsen and Davis. Both are super quirky, intelligent, inspiring, and all these nice words. Davis though, I feel like she’s an older version of myself. I highly respect her more than any teacher I had in my life.

Now… Let’s get down to business! To defeat the… Uh. Wait. I mean… to get educated! That’s it! Let’s get down to business, to get an education! While I am attending college, I wanted to set some goals for myself.  Goals are very important and it helps me stay focused. One of my main goals is to get at least a 3.0 GPA. When I was younger, I never really set myself up to get good grades. I never really thought about how it could help me achieve greater possibilities. I want to maintain a 3.0 because I want to be able to get into a good University. Another goal is to ask for help when needed. I was that one kid who never asked for help and I ended up falling behind. I don’t want to repeat that situation. Thankfully, the college I go to offers a tutoring center. It is seriously amazing. Free tutoring? I am just going to abuse that opportunity. I also already applied for one-on-one tutoring sessions for Math and English. It’s great! Finally, I want to be able to make friends. It’s tough when most of my best friend’s are in different parts of the US and world. It would be nice to have friends who I am able to connect with in person.

Tips:

♥ Set up goals – I find it important to set up goals because it could help motivate a person into doing something better. It sure helped me out.

♥ Buy a planner – This is optional, really. I am normally a messy person but if I am serious about something then I stick to it. I make sure to write everything in my planner for college. Some of the things I put in my planner are tutor sessions, class schedules, homework, phone numbers, teacher emails, special events, and all sorts of information to remember.

♥ Extra credit – 
Oh boy, some teachers give extra credit and some don’t. My math teacher gives out math term vocabulary words on quizzes for extra credit. It also doesn’t hurt to ask.

♥ Tutoring Center –
 No joke, most of my friend’s who have been attending Universities and Colleges recommend tutoring. Especially since it’s free? My friend’s told me to abuse tutoring. My Community College offers one-on-one sessions by applying for it. They also have walk-in’s but I wanted to set myself up. I didn’t want to worry about it later.  By the way, I love my one-on-one tutors. I went to my first session today and it was amazing. She’s amazing and so is my tutor tomorrow.

Don’t forget! It’s never too late to get an education. It’s never too late to go back to school. Never give up and make sure to always do your best. Some of the students I go to school with are above 30-60 years of age. Life can take us anywhere but we can also control where we want to go. The only way we can accomplish our dreams is if we pursue them and work hard for it. Disney actually taught me that.

I am thankful to those who supported me throughout my journey. I love you, my readers. I hope to start blogging to you guys more.  ♥

Good night, everyone!
