A Day In The Life of a Struggling "Adult" College Student

So I finally got to turn in my first official essay. I must say I am really excited to see what grade I get. Of course I will be a little disappointed if I get anything less than what I expect. I would love to get an 'A' but I have to be realistic so I hope to get at least a low 'B'. I worked really hard on and I would like to see that it wasn't in vain. The assignment was to write a comparsion & contrast essay on pretty much any subject we liked, but particularly something personal. So I choose to write about my process of cooking Thanksgiving versus how my former sister in law (that's a different story for a different day) cooks her Christmas dinner. I titled it "The Recipe". Well I'll definitely let you know how I did. Now for today's class, today was honestly was my first day that I didn't want to go to class. I just didn't really feel like it. No real reason, just didn't feel like it.
Ultimately I'm glad that I did, the professor is pretty laid back so that helps. Plus today was a short day since he wasn't feel that great. Nothing special about the class, we just got to talk about all the essays we're reading and examine them. It's pretty neat to have a story broken apart and explained by someone else, to see things I may have not seen. Today just made me feel like I made the right decision, not because I need a degree to better my live. But because it feels good...fore filling. Like I'm using my brain for something more than day to day mundane activities. I like being mentally challenged, charging my brain.
It's like a good song...you feel it. You understand it, live it, become almost one with it. And the feeling it leaves you with...like you're ok, that you'll be ok, that someone out there understands you or even makes you think of things you may have never thought of. I guess ultimately that's what you're suppose to get of class, I mean learning. You learn to understand, to see things in other ways and apply it to the world.
In conclusion it was a good simple class, can't wait till next week.
