Since junior high, my favorite subject in school has been history. European history, to be precise. Not surprising, really. My mother's family came straight from the Netherlands, and my father's side came from England. Yes, I've had a slight obsession with England since I was five, but reading or watching their history is my favorite thing. Going there in 2018 was an absolute dream come true!
Ok, back on topic...
I've attended college. Twice. Two different schools. Four different majors. None of them in history. I've done majors in Special Ed, Criminal Psychology, English, and Social Media Marketing. Obviously, none of them stuck. I've now decided to apply at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) and do their online European History program.
I'm nervous. I mean, everything I've tried, I've failed. Not just when it comes to school. Everything.
I called up a good friend to talk about all this, and we came to a couple conclusions:
- Failing is a part of life and learning.
- Maybe online school will be better since there are no people around.
So, I filled out my FAFSA, hit that "Apply" button on SNHU's website, and am now in the process of pretending to wait like a patient person.
I'll only be able to do like two or three classes per year, so even if I do happen to succeed, it'll take until I'm ninety, but at least it's doing something.
Picture of the day (because I said so): I took this in 2015. It's the Utah State Capitol Building.
