In the days since my last post, things have calmed down and I’m feeling a little less nervous than I was last week, mainly due to the support of my family. Since then, I’ve been trying to decide what I’m going to do for Christmas, since my sister is going to go visit relatives who are extremely unsupportive to my transition, and my mom is taking a trip to the Smokey Mountains with her fiance. Right now my plan is to just stay home, try to make some extra money working on Christmas Eve, and try to see if anyone I know doesn’t have any plans either, so we’ll see how that goes.
Going into more depressing things, I finally got around to looking into the requirements into transferring into a finance degree, and they’re much tougher than I anticipated. To give some background info I have been in depression since the start of college, which led me to dropping out of multiple courses, failing or doing terribly (C-D grades) in classes, and just in general having a terrible time with schooling. Now, however, I have at least started feeling much less depressed (apart from this past week) and am finally trying to improve my future, but with this hurdle I really don’t know what to do. My first thought was to transfer to a community college and get an associates degree then try to transfer back for my bachelors, but I’m not sure how that would work with the school. I’ll call the school later to try to get an appointment to figure out everything (with my luck though they won’t have any openings until after Thanksgiving).
Now on to better news, I finally bought my pass to Ohayocon after about a month of procrastinating. Now all I have to do is to figure out which of my friends are actually going (since some bailed on me last time) and if my sister wants to go. Hopefully this will be figured out before hotel rates go up because that $95 dollars a night room looks much better than the ones for around $150.
I also had a bit of a derp moment last week. I for some reason decided to look at my prescription bottle and realized my doctor increased my dosage, which means for the past week and a half I’ve been taking 2 mg less than I was supposed to.
