Lately I have been recieving a bucket load of questions about college. For example "what are you planning on doing/going" or "are you going out of state?" Very innocent simple annoying questions every single senior is asked. I know I'm not alone on it.
But sometimes it is frustrating to me to have to answer questions about the future. Since lupus puts a damper on my studies, I generally lie through my teeth about college. Fact is I won't be able to handle a full course load or finish at the same as others. I will be living at home. The ability for me to go out of state for school at this point is non-existant.
Next year I will be attending a local community college. No thrills or frills. Taking it easy and slowly but surely working towards independence.
Getting in two years of normal base classes will probably take me four. So for whatever amount of time it would take a normal healthy person, it will take me twice as long.
I am looking forward to next year but there is a long road ahead.
