Looks like I'm not going to be busy with school for a long time...

On the one hand, that means that I might be able to be online often enough to keep up with my online projects. On the other hand, I might not, depending on the type of job I can get.
` Not only have I been rejected from the university I applied to, but I've also failed to get my transfer degree, and it may be many years until I can get the money for doing so. Indeed, without being able to make more money, I may not graduate from college until I'm 40, or maybe by then I'll have found another lot in life.
` Basically, college is like one big game of catch-up, not having had an education before now, and it's gotten yet another complication. Plus, I really think it's important that I learn other subjects I haven't ever studied yet, like history.

Well, perhaps because I have a lot of things going for me, I'll be able to get another job, as an orangutan, perhaps -- no really, check out this commercial I was in last December!

Okay, so that didn't make me any money (which pissed off my grandma so much she didn't want me to tell her about how much fun I had), but seriously, there is 'monkey-work' that can get me some cash.

(I know, orangutans are great apes, it's okay....)

For now, I will probably have more time to build this website into some recognizable form. My days and nights are no longer consumed by homework, as I only have one more final to study for. It's Spanish, which is a very easy subject for me. Perhaps I can make money doing some sort of translation?
` I want to learn more languages, but again, that requires going to classes, which I don't have money for.
` I may be able to improve my Spanish skills based on what I've already done in three quarters, and use the rest of the book and website and keep going somehow, but I highly doubt I'll be able to learn other languages without classes.

Anyway, I'm skipping karate class at this moment because I'm sick and stressed out, and somewhat doubt that my stomach will hold up to all the jostling. Ugh, that's something that I'm getting a little behind in since I passed my yellow belt test, because I haven't been feeling well for about a month so far.

Spanish, karate, art, writing -- these are some of the skills I'm developing, but it seems likely that they won't be of any use unless I can get some more money for college.
` Sigh... well, I'm hoping that if I make this website decent enough, I'll have something to show people if they want to know what I'm capable of. You know, like a portfolio, sort of.
` I have some more ideas about how to organize the website, so it's good that I haven't been actively mixing it up even more as I've been busy with school.

So, time to keep writing this website, and it finally seems that now I'll have a lot more time than I have since I first started it -- I have a place to do it, a computer to do it on, and no crazy and/or abusive roommates or school to get in the way. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh yeah, some unforeseen disaster. Those are common, but considerably less so these days, so I'm not going to worry about it too much. On with the show!

Spoony you should be really really proud of yourself for putting yourself through school after having not much schooling when you were younger. There are not too many people in this world that would have the drive or willingness to put themselves through that to better themselves and their life ahead and never forget that where there is a will to accomplish something there will always be a way to do it. It might take time to figure out that way of completing your education but you already have the enthusiasm to do it and you've proved that time and time again over the last number of years since you started schooling and college. Finances are holding you up at the moment and yes that is a big hurdle to overcome but even people that have money would not think about using it to go to school with whereas you are doing it the right way around. You WANT to learn and that is the main thing. Remember - where there is a will there is always a way ;-) <3

Awwwww, thanks! I needed those words of encouragement. Yeah, I'll probably take over the world someday....
