I had to drop one of my classes this semester because, and I wish I had known about this before I signed up for the class, I needed to download 10 gigs worth OS images to do the classwork. My internet is metered because we don’t have cable where I live and I have to use a satellite service. I’m only get ten gigs a month for internet. Plus, my laptop is old and wouldn’t be able to support being turned into a college computer lab, which was what the instructor wanted us to do. So, I have to take it next semester along with one other class and then I’m DONE!
This is the absolute worst time to decide I don’t like my major. Even though I’m thinking I hate school right now, which is only because my classes aren’t interesting anymore, I’m considering trying something else. If I can’t stand doing technology in school for three years, how am I supposed to tolerate it as a career?
Well, those are questions for later. I’m going to finish my current degree first because it would be stupid not to. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
A more immediate struggle is my hours got cut at work. I was getting 40 hours a week and now I’m only getting 24. I’m sure it’ll pick up again for the holidays, but now I have to really stretch my dollars. I’m also saving up for a vacation in less than two years. That’s something I want to get into the habit of doing, taking a trip every two years.
Another goal is to own my own house. I have a large dog now so that means an apartment isn’t an option anymore and I want to adopt one or two main coon cats. My mom has a main coon mix and he’s so chill. I want one, but I might just take hers. I’ve been looking at “catio” designs on pinterest so my large dog doesn’t bother my hypothetical cats.
