At this point-- the semester from hell is over, I managed to get very acceptable grades, and I'm still breathing-- I'm going to post this last entry, and leave it at that.
My journey through school will continue. I still have one semester to finish at the two year school I'm attending. I still have to get transferred to the four year school I want to attend. In fact, I have a lot of hurdles still to get over. I don't know how the book will end. But the reason I started writing here, the situation, has started, happened, and finished.
