Ahh yes, the week after labor day! School starts once again. I just need to keep reminding myself “I’m $30,000 in debt with student loans, I need to finish my degree”. I guess I now know how Bill Gates kinda felt when he was in college. With the pressures of my business demanding more and more of my time, I honestly have no idea how I’m going to find time for class this year.
I have 18 credits left to get my Bachelors degree (that is unless I need to retake some of the classes I got D’s in). These are going to be the longest 18 credits of my entire college career. This fall semester, I’m taking ‘Archeology of Cities’, ‘History of the Holocaust’, and ‘Strategic Management’. Why in the world I’m taking the first two classes, I don’t know. But in order to graduate from UMD’s School of Business and Economics, you need to have so many upper division electives from other colleges. And those 2 classes were some of the only ones that didn’t require lower division pre-requisites.
The temptation to just quit school and continue my business full time is a big one. But then I’d be $30,000 in debt for nothing. At least when I get my degree, I’ll have a $30,000 paper that I’ll probably never use, but I’ll at least have something.
