I am officially a debit card user! I finally had enough money to open an account at the credit union. I only have seventy dollars in there so far, but it’s way better than the 32 cents total I had to my name yesterday! Still haven’t been able to get books and already have homework. I will e-mail the teacher to work something out. Paid my phone bill (hopefully it’s enough and not too late). Still haven’t found a job, but I’m still filling out applications. It’s so hard being a new adult; I have no credit, no job experience, and, at the moment, no way to get either. Finally have enough money to do laundry. Really need to budget so that doesn’t happen again- no weather-appropriate clothes clean, no food, no school supplies. I really appreciate all the help I’ve had though. Anyhow, on to classes…
I didn’t have a class until 3:30 today, so I took care of some pressing business, as you read. My French class is really fun so far, I feel like I know what’s going on for a change, but who knows how long that will last. The teacher is not French this time, so I don’t think she will be as harsh on the pronunciation as Mr. Dagbovie and Madame Fuzet. But I don’t think she will be a pushover like Mme. Van Tassel, either. The people in the class mostly don’t want to be there, which I think is really sad. I really love the French accent, I’ve always wanted to be able to speak the language because it’s so beautiful when spoken properly. But anyway, I can still enjoy it without them.
English is going to be a really great class. Purdue is interweaving technology and research with their freshmen English programs; therefore, I will be able to learn how to use computers more efficiently while also learning to be a better writer. Also, there is no book for the class; our teacher spent the summer making these eBooks for us to use with the class, as well as making a blog for us to post things to. The eBook has all the features you need: you can highlight, use post-its, dog-ear a page, read an annotation…it is really like a textbook, and she gave it to us for free!!! She is super nice too. But she talks a little too fast for me.
Anyway, today went way better than yesterday…what with math and that teacher not showing up, but I have those classes again tomorrow…maybe it will be better.
Hoping for more attendance, P.S. Peace Love and Hair grease. Read the footer
Stay tuned for another misadventure of this almost grown woman…until the next time, keep it true, no matter how many feelings truth hurts!
