I have mixed emotions about all this. One the one hand I'm disappointed that I have to go another year. On the other hand, I feel as though I didn't receive the level of instruction I was looking for and don't mind retaking some of my general education classes. In either case I feel as if I wasted at least two years of my life.
[Deep thought...] Now that I've written that, I don't believe that it was a waste. I have built valuable study skills and habits which I lacked in high school. It also gave me the opportunity to improve my writing and public speaking skills. I need to think of the classes I've taken at Mt. Sierra, more as prep work than anything else. Hmmm.... Yeah, I like that. Okay, I've found my silver lining. Now I hope that my subconscious believes that as well.
