This has been the hardest semester for me yet. I have been procrastinating too much. In away I have been doing a great job of self sabotage. In a way I think I do not deserve to get my A.A. Though I have put in all of the time and work that I need to, maybe even more. I am less than two months away from finally getting my A.A. in Liberal Arts. Maybe it is because I fear the success it could bring. I do not want to let things go to my head. I like the way I am now in a personal sense, I worry that I will become arrogant because of the success. As I am now and how I hope I will see myself in the future is that I am just a guy trying to do more for society and not just for myself.
The class I am doing the worst in right now is Spanish. At this point I just want to pass the course. That is the first time I have said that about any of my classes. My history class I am a bit behind in but, I can make that up no problem. I have liked all my social science teachers. Hell, I have a crush on the teacher I had last semester for U.S. history 2. The current history course I am taking is History of World Civilization 3. And I have been looking forward to this class for awhile. The reason for that is I want to try and understand what the more recent history of the middle east is like. This way I can help to figure out a solution to some of the problems over there.
Human Geography is another good class I am taking and I am all caught up in. I only have a presentation, a short essay on urbanization and the final left for that class. My teacher for this class I had last semester for Physical Geography so I kind of knew what to expect from him. Then I have my Career Exploration class which helped me to decide to change my Major from Social studies Education to a straight History major. I am doing this because I do not want to have to narrow of a major and a History B.A. can open a whole lot of doors as I found out.
The last class is not really a class but a certificate program called Pillar of Leadership. In this program we go over the different types of leadership but, focus more on the Social Change Model of Leadership. This is a pretty cool program and is going to look good on my resume. Though the main reason I am taking this is because I do want to help change the way things are in this world, for the better.
I guess for me now it is crunch time. I need to make sure I pass all my classes and by February I will have my A. A. degree in my hands. Now I just have to find another job because the job I am currently working at is the student store on the Work Study Program. So, I really do want to start looking for jobs and internships in my field of study.
