First Day of School :3
My orientation starts today for University of Phoenix :) I involuntarily took last semester off when I got some bad personal news. I've changed schools three times now, and I've tried all different types. Kutztown University was a nice town-based school where I lived on campus. Burlington County College was a convenient community college that was right around the corner from my house. And University of Phoneix Axia College is the best yet - school online! Now I don't have to worry about changing my work schedule around and I can go to school where I want, when I want. It's intense work and faster paced than a 15 week semester (9 week course blocks), but I like it because it's only two classes at a time rather than 4-6 at a time.

I've also switched majors with each school I've gone to. At KU I was a Biology major, with dreams of becoming a doctor. Then at BCC I was a Nursing major. And now I'm happily a Web & Graphic Design major. I love it, I'm doing what makes me happy! (Not that science doesn't, but only genetics is my guilty nerdy pleasure)

I've been uploading the 1000+ photos from my Disney trip in January! If I can get a minute to breathe, I'll post a few pictures and a link to the album! I also have to make an album for my ski trip and my Canada trip from last summer!

    I don't feel so bad now. I started at the Art Institute of Atlanta for Computer Animation, then was enrolling at Columbus College of Art and Design (for Animation too) then Columbus State for Vet Tech, then I went to Sinclair for Radiology.

    Also when I read that I so read that a Klutztown... I figured it was a perfect school for me. :D
