So I am feeling much better. I had "sinusitis.." yeah whatever, it's what they call it when I have something and they don't know exactly what it is. And I have this staph infection in a very unusual and embarassing place. You take your guesses, I'm not telling lol. But I do feel more myself now. Although I still feel a little isolated (probably because I haven't spoken to anyone outside of work friends in a while) but I don't feel like isolating myself anymore. At least today. And yesterday. Good sign? IDK!
 
I think I'm feeling better because the stress of school isn't weighing heavily on me now. I start back January 16, so I am sure I'll be all kinds of crazy when I start again. I am officially a sophomore now! I know, I know, I'm 25.
 
I started school in '05 after having graduated in '04. I had a scholarship through the school and also TOPS. I had made a 27 on my ACT so I was tested out of several courses. Everything was fine until my dad decided to confront my brother about having molested me. It was ME who was supposed to confront him about what he did. I was supposed to get that for my closure. But noooo, my dad had to "see what my brother would say." So of course, my brother lied and said I was an f'n liar and all kinds of things. My dad went so far as to call my other brother to see if it was true. Really, dad?? But my other brother knew it was true. He had seen my brother do this to me. But he was given the same threat I was, that he would hurt our mom (the brother that did this was the oldest and from my father's previous marriage; my 2 other brothers are from my mom and dad). So my brother confirmed that yes, it had happened.
 
You can probably imagine that at this point, I was ready to explode. I was working and going to school full time. Living with a roommate. I had to pay bills. But I felt I had too much on my plate. So I dropped out of school.
 
Fast forward, I finally decided this year that I was going to go back. I wasn't going to let anyone keep me from my dreams. I was strangely optimistic. It was hard and I failed English, basically because I didn't care about his assignments and stopped going. I took 2 other classes, making a C and a B. I know it doesn't sound so great, but that C in Biology made me feel like I had won the lottery!! LOL.. So, I don't have the greatest GPA right now (2.364) but I am going to strive to make it better. Now that I know what to expect and I'm back in the groove of school, I think I'll do better.
 
Hmm, I had only planned to say I was feeling better and tell you guys I about my grades and such, but hey, I went off on a tangent.
 
Have a good day, y'all! Take care!

Hey Kelsey,

You were right, I grew up in Metairie :) It does sound like you had a lot on your plate and that school was best saved for later. I am glad you went back! I always consider my faith and education two things that no one can take away from me. What are you going to school for now? And sheesh... between work and school, passing classes is great!

I'm sorry to hear about your family/brother situation, but I am glad to see you are recovering from the situation. I just graduated in May and I think I want to get a masters but I got myself stuck up in this neck of the woods. I shouldn't complain, I have a great apartment and a great job... it's just tough being in a small town after a two year relationship with an ex who already has someone new. Not to mention I seem to get lots of attention from people asking if I'll date a guy or a girl next... (for the record, guys only). And even though I'm only 4 hours away from home and my family, it's still four hours. All my close friends have moved, so the closest ones are an hour away.

Anyway, your post interested me. You write like you talk, same with me. Oh yeah, I have IBS too... hahaha. Looks like we have things in common, though idk how great those similarities are! Take your medicine so you don't get another unknown illness :) And, enjoy your break before you go back to school. As stressful as school was, I do miss it sometimes.

Hear from you soon,

Courtney

Hahaa! IBS sucks. But it's nice to be able to tell people and them be like oh yeah, I got issues with my bowels too lol! I do write how I talk, I don't really want to take the time to type out something that isn't even remotely sounding like me. What's the point? You just can't hear the ridiculous accent I have. Thank goodness! Did you get my question about the emailing? I do think we have things in common and can talk through those things! My email is in my profile, I haven't looked in yours (it feels weird to me to look if you don't want me to email you..lol) And it's also cool that you're from Louisiana.

I, originally, went back for pre-pharmacy (to do my pre-reqs for pharmacy school), but I've recently changed my concentration from BIO-CHEM (what they call it) to strictly a more Chemistry based curriculum.

What did you go to school for? And I understand about the relationship thing. I had a guy tell me "I just can't do this right now. I can't be in a relationship right now." 2 weeks later, he was with a chick and eventually knocked her up. Then he tried to crawl back to me months later. As if!

Talk to you later!
