I'm excited that things are going to begin getting back to normal soon. The children go back to school, work schedules resume, my tv shows come back... I plan to go tomorrow to register for a class or two. I don't know what exactly I'll need to do but I'm sure that someone can help me. I'm very excited about it. I'm very nervous about it. I went to high school a long time ago. I left in 1998 and got my GED which is something I don't like to discuss. I had a lot of health and personal problems and I just couldn't "do" school anymore. I still had an overall 3.2 average (or something like that). I did very, very well on my ACT. I did very, very well on the GED test (it was a joke). Still, I'm scared TO DEATH that college will be too hard for me and I will fail. I'm extremely afraid of stupid. And failure. I am not so good at the Math. I had some poor teachers in middle school and I don't think that my basic skills were ever very strong. I understand Algebra when it's taught to me but I don't know fractions or even how to add multiple numbers. My multiplication isn't so great either. I will probably have to take remedial Math(s) in college. That is okay, I guess. I need to learn. I didn't know if I should share all this here but I thought, "Why not?" It's like everything else- my addictions, my weight, my depression, my recovery- it's me. I want to have these things written down. I have so many feelings about this subject and writing helps me. If you enjoy reading about it in the process, so be it.
