I'm getting more accustomed to the new school. Actually, it's not too terribly different than my old school in regards to the types of students that go there (lazy and not-so-bright). I only have to physically be there for 1 class and the other 2 are online. That helps. The parking is still an f-ing joke, though.
Things are looking a little brighter, I guess. They will definitely look super-sunny when my financial aid money gets deposited into my bank account. I don't think I've ever been quite this financially destitute. As long as I can hold out for a few more days all will be good.
I still don't like politics, but maybe I will learn to at least appreciate them. And if I can't appreciate them, at least I'll be very knowledgeable on the subject. Optimism!
