I’m sorry it’s taken me a MONTH to write a new blog. Oof! School has taken over my life. But I don’t regret it. I get frustrated and want to quit but my mama didn’t raise no quitter! I do regret taking 7 classes though. It’s so much work. Those of you in college or going to college soon, DON’T DO THAT TO YOURSELF! I somehow fit 4 semesters into 3 and just found out that this will be my last semester at my community college! 🙂
Now I’m looking at universities and figuring out how I’m going to pay for it and what I want to do as a career. I think I’ve got it figured out, though. And I’m excited about it.
I know I definitely want to do something with marine life. I have this burning passion for the ocean and the life that lives in it. If I could build a glass dome in the ocean and live in it, I would! I think I want to do Marine Biology. I’ve decided this about a year ago and then changed it but I think it’s something I could do and be really interested in and love.
I’ve been looking at colleges and I think the best one would be the University of North Carolina. (I think there’s 2 but I’m not going to tell which. I’ll keep ya guessing 😉 ) I hear they have a great marine biology program plus my brother-in-law’s sister goes there and she loves it.
How to pay for it: … welp.
I want to get the cheapest tuition so that would be the resident tuition cost. I want to move there and live there for a year so during that time, I’ll get a job, save what I can for about a year, and then apply to the school, scholarships, financial aid, student loans, etc then start school.
I think it’s a good plan. Austin is pretty hesitant, though, which is kind of understandable. It would be moving away from family and his friends to a town we’ve never been to. He’s also worried that he’ll be paying for it all (even though he won’t and I will be sure of it).
If any of y’all reading have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know!
