What am I doing with my life?

I'm...not going to do Americorps again. Maybe in the future, but not now. This (so far, I still have four months left!) has been an incredible experience, but right now I'm ready to do something else...

And that something isn't going back to school. Not yet. I'm not going to spend money on credit hours that I'm just going to waste, not enjoy, and not do well in. I'm certainly not ready to go back full-time. Before you rag on me for this, remember that everyone is different. Full-time schooling is not right for me right now. I wouldn't do well. I still have no idea what to major in. I'm still not motivated enough to go for something that I'm not sure I want (the specific degree, I'm sure that I DO want a degree).

Besides-- I don't technically have an AA (though I have the credit amount) because there are certain classes I need to take. FSU won't accept non-AA students unless you have a 3.0. Which... yeah, I don't.

So here's what:

I'm going to get a job. A grown-up (no cashiering or customer service of any kind), non-volunteer (though I will still volunteer with LVLC), real-paying (atleast $9-$10/hour) job. Either through Adecco (though I didn't have good luck with them before) or another temp agency, or I'll look for some other job here in Tallahassee. Meanwhile, I'm going to take a class a semester at TCC. Then after a year or so, I'll be able to transfer into FSU or FAMU as a full-time student (if at that point I'm ready to do that).

So there you have it. Melissa's (academic and career) plans for the next chunk of her life.

And where am I going to live? I'm thinking Castle...

I think you're right to stay away from full time classes if you feel that you wouldn't accomplish anything or have fun there anyway.

What kind of job are you looking for? $9-10 an hour with no college degree (and no customer service tips) sounds difficult. Getting an AA by your class-a-semester TCC plan could help.


Do you have roommates planned for Castle?

I was making $11 in Gainesville. I don't think $9-$10 is unreachable. I've got skills, man! With Adecoo, it would probably be secretarial. However, I wanted to look at some of the non-profits, or possibly apply for circulation at the library.

I have one roommate planned for Castle.
