For the past two years of high school I have been imagining and visualizing how this moment would happen. I had lost motivation for high school for two main reasons: the challenge for me was gone in most classes, and I was fortunate enough to experience other real world happenings (movies/competitions) and I knew what happened and it tended to differ from what was taught. That made college this object that would finally put me in direct contact with people who knew how to push my mind and skills.
Yesterday I got up at the butt crack of dawn (5:30 am) to go and register at UW Stout. The day was very un-eventful and they told us a bunch of very worthless information. I was the only Multimedia Design major there, which kind of bummed me out since I was hopping to meet someone else in the program. The majority of the day was worthless and I didnt get to do much of anything truly interesting. Mostly just stuff they need to go over with us, how the school card works, the campus police, probation and dismissal rules, and a plethora of other information you can tell I remembered really well.
I did get to register though, even though most of my classes were given to me on paper slips and was told Sign up for these. Left me already at twelve credits for the term. I picked up an afternoon English class and then a skin and scuba diving class on Monday and Wednesday nights which should be a fun, well English not so fun but diving will be. Im more and more excited about going there. Sometime in the future here I will figure out how to get my possible double major done in only 6 years (BFA in art and BS in business administration).
take care and God bless~paul prins
