So far, school has been going about as well as I expected it to – which is to say, fairly well. As far as I know, I’m essentially acing the classes that I signed up for. I did drop my accounting class – partially because I wasn’t learning the material quickly enough for my taste, and partially because I absolutely hated the way that the instructor was teaching it.
A few weeks ago, I was over at Joe’s house on Wednesday night to hang out and play Smash and such. His brother Jeff was preoccupied with his laptop, and eventually I wandered over to see what was holding his attention. He showed me coding that he’d been working on, and mentioned that there was a bug somewhere, and I eagerly pulled up a chair to try and help debug it. About 10-15 minutes later, we succeeded. That brief experience was enough to remind me of how much I enjoy coding, and programming. Now I find something facing a dilemma. I’d decided to switch to an accounting career path. Do I look, again, at changing that? If so, the classes I’m taking this semester could potentially be a huge waste of time and money. If not, I have to take the accounting class again – and what if I still don’t get it? What if I don’t like it? The last thing I want to do is get into a job that I don’t enjoy again.
I’ve put so much pressure on myself to succeed in school. I have to. I can’t fail.
