I've noticed that time does fly, when you're having fun and when you're not, when you're busy and when you're not. And then it takes forever to pass sometimes. Seems like time is never going at the speed you want or expect it to, it's very unpredictable.
I'm annoyed because I can't take college classes for credit through joint enrollment this quarter. We couldn't afford it for this one online college, and at the school where my dad teaches, we couldn't get it free and they are being annoying because they've never had a home school student do joint enrollment there before. So now I'm having to settle for auditing. But the classes I wanted aren't offered this quarter, or don't exist, or require prerequisites, which I haven't taken. So I looked over what they do offer, and because what I found wasn't on the days I was looking for, I have to completely redo my schedule. Arrggh. So I think I'm going to audit this US History to 1877 class, which of course only has one time and meets during the Intro. to Classical Cinema class. But if I take the US History class, I can use it as credit for home school to finish out my social studies credits for high school. I don't know what to do.
But on a lighter, happier note, my parents basically agreed to my idea of taking a gap year! I'm so excited! They just said I have to make sure it's a productive year, which I was going to anyways. I don't want or plan on spending my gap year at home sleeping and lazing around. I plan on it being out of state, maybe even out of country. I plan on being so busy I get sleep deprived, because there is so much I want to do, and I actually love sleep. I want to intern, work, volunteer, travel, take art classes, dive into photography and writing, and hopefully take some college classes. Has anyone here taken a gap year between high school and college? Or in the middle of or after college? Does anyone have any ideas for me?
