Overall I'm just ready to meet people who are actually on my wavelength, and I think college is a great outlet for that, especially considering community college is so affordable ($91 a credit here I think).


Community college is the best way to go, financially and education-wise. It's better than paying around $20K out-of-pocket and you can get your core classes out of the way. As for the social factor, it's an amazing place to meet new people that potentially have the same interests as you. When the time comes, hope it comes out well!

Much of what I tried to learn in college I already know or learned on my own to some extent. Especially programming. It was all stuff that felt like you could just simply google on your own or just smash stuff together to figure out.

One weakness was algebra classes due to all the darned homework. Ugh.
Probably wasted a good semester or two trying to get better... but honestly it isn't a style I prefer to be taught in. Schools in general need overhauling.

Is it a bit weird that my experience with college so far hasn't been bad? I've been enjoying it a lot. Homework and all the classes haven't been as difficult as high school so far, but mostly because during high school I had decided to learn accounting alongside the other normal classes.

The college I go to is really small, there's like two buildings, only one of which has more than one floor. In fact, this place is smaller than the high school I went to. There's only ~40 classrooms total and only like five courses. And no dorms either, so I still live at home (I think most colleges around here don't have dorms either, maybe a really big university but I wouldn't know). The courses in it are technologist courses which only last for 3 years. It's also funded by the state, which means no tuition! I mean, as long as you can actually get one of the 40 spots per class that is (good luck with the exam!).

Technologist is below Undergraduate level but they still classify as higher education. I'm learning System Analysis and Development, which means that I'm going to learn more about management and business than a typical Computer Scientist, but less about actual programming and technology itself. I like what they did with these courses though, instead of teaching us a bunch of stuff that we may already know or that we may not use, they teach us mostly the basics of everything and then expand on the stuff that business actually require out of us.

Sure you don't have as many students to meet or as many cool resources to use, or the status of going to a big university, but hey this college has a pretty high employability rate even today (higher than most undergradute courses!) so I'll take it. Overall I like how simple it is. It doesn't feel intimidating or overbearing, instead it kinda feels like you're right at home, which for me is the best feeling that a school of any kind could have. And also it's great to meet people that share similar interests.
i'm try in to get into collage, now i just need to wait for the right time :)

Yes.
I can't believe I'm going to college in only a year and a half from now. I'm pretty excited about it, but I still don't even know where to go. I'd like to go to a university and live in a dorm, but I'm worried about the tuition even though my parents said they'd be willing to pay it off with loans. I just don't know whether to stay in state or not. I think I'd feel more comfortable being closer to my parents (within driving distance) as I'll only be 19 and barely out of high school with little experience being independent from them.

On the other hand, I'm getting letters from Princeton and Yale saying I'd be a good candidate for their schools (I'm skeptical about it but it's probably because I got a 1400 on the PSAT last October and I'm taking the SAT in May). My parents would love to see me go to such great schools, but I'm overwhelmed with all the college letters I've been getting.

I don't really know about community college. Maybe it would be a better option for me, but I'm still trying to decide where I should go. I'll make up my mind eventually, especially during the summer, where I'll actually have time to visit some schools.

I am so looking forward to my new art coming soon! It is going to look really good. So might just show off some of the recent avatars soon. Slight different look.

I think it's just safe to say college isn't for everyone. It sure wasn't for me. All the stress, my own health problems, me being out of shape, and walking from one end of the campus to the other and climbing up and down the stairs kinda added up. And me procrastinating on my work, doing everything last minute, and having pretty much middling grades didn't help in the slightest. Not to mention I had basically no ties to anyone socially, so I just felt like a fish out of the water.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

How do I plan to celebrate? Smoking the green stuff.

I was gonna celebrate with a shamrock shake from McDonald’s, but the one I went to didn’t have it for some reason. What a disappointment. #tb{¬_¬}

I just wore some green. I don't have any alcohol in the house because alcohol is expensive and I'd rather spend the $10 on a 6-pack of beer or cider on food. If you have an Aldi's grocery store near you, do yourself a favor and check them out. You gotta be cool with the idea of trying unfamiliar brands, but the food is really good and the prices are so low. Seriously, I save so much money shopping there.

Maybe I should treat myself to some cider every once in a while with all the money I'm saving from shopping there.

For me, it was just another day. They blend in fast went you're indoors most days working on projects. My eyes are green so that'll have to do.

Has anyone else noticed a sudden spike in the number of long and nonsensical usernames that don't even fit in the space provided?

Namely ?

There really should be a reasonable character limit.

Yeah. Those names sure can get weird at times.

But weird is part of SMWC at times. Aye!

Menu
well all the good short names are already taken what do you expect
The closest Aldi for me is like a mile or two. I'd go if it were closer believe me.

As for holidays, I'm not too big on them tbh

Actually there's plenty of short names still available here. Twitter and Reddit are the places where there's almost no short names available anymore.
lol, yeah, when my girlfriend tried to register on Twitter, she had to try like five or six different variations on her username before she got one that wasn't taken already.
