Look what they’ve done to our precious Lady Liberty! Everything she stands for! Freedom! The pursuit of happiness! Construction with cheap materials! EVERYTHING America is founded upon!
Okay actually it was just Andrea knocking the miniature statue off the shelf. I always knew she was a crusader of evil. But I sure thought that the Statue of Liberty could survive a three foot fall. I guess that’s what we get for constructing her out of plastic. And here I thought it was copper, or at least pewter.
Well, I recently made a HUGE life decision. I am wanting to go into the IT business for computers, and K-State doesn’t exactly offer anything specifically for that. I was getting fed up with all of the computer programming classes that I was taking and some that I was having to retake. So, I decided to drop out and go to work full-time for this semester. I just hated wasting money in a program that I didn’t like. It would take me longer to graduate and more money, since I wasn’t interested in the classes, and eventually would probably have to retake them.
I am currently looking for some kind of job in that field around here so I can gain some experience and move on to bigger and better things. I might be going to the technical college around here, but it just depends on whether or not I can get a job. I am looking to study for some certifications on my own this semester so my resume can look a little better.
It’s going to be tough, but I wouldn’t have made this decision if I wasn’t in it for the long haul. I know that people are going to judge me and tell me that it was a bad idea to drop out of K-State, but I’ll just have to deal with it because this is MY decision. All I really want from everyone is a “Good luck” or “I support you” kinda stuff. I just want everyone to understand and listen to my explanations too.
Here’s my plan: I’m working full time this semester to save up money, getting a couple of certifications, finding a job in my field, going to tech college next semester (if I have to), and just moving on with my life and stop wasting money in something I don’t want to do.
