Each day adds more accomplishments. As they add up, I think I'm getting back on my feet and may someday get myself back on the track of job/school/contacting real people. I had my EEG this morning, took a shower, had Dunkin Donuts (I count that as an accomplishment since the 'rents "don't eat fast food"), went to the library to return my books ON TIME, got a book out I've been meaning to read, got the dishes done, called SUNY, aaaand played 3 hours of FFX. Yeah. I'm onto that again.
I found this list
of important books people should read in their lifetime. I reviewed the list. I printed it out. I crossed out the books I had read and it occurred to me, with some measure of horror as someone who believes themselves to be a literature lover, I'm way behind on this list.
I will admit, I have not fully read 1984, despite having made many references to it. So my first book on this list is going to be that one. I feel it is timely. I plan to get it read as quickly as possible to get through this list by the end of the year, although I'm not making any promises as I'm a terribly slow reader and easily distracted (plus with 3 weeks per borrow time, I give myself that leniency).
As for SUNY: I was told in order to get a second Bachelor's, as is written on their site, I just need to do the regular app & send it in & I'll get 2nd priority. I was calling them to see if I could set up some sort of advisory appointment, but was discouraged from doing so. I would like to know if I can get a leg up on this "second priority" crap and if all my pre-reqs really are covered even though the girl I spoke to (who sounded younger than I & highly unsure of herself - terrible customer service skills) told me most likely I'd be fine since SUNY S.B. has so few requirements, but maybe an admissions rep can let me know in person.
I'm going to try to visit within the next 2 weeks without an appointment and see if I can talk to someone on my own. I'll take a tour. Dad's been iffy on taking me, so I'm asking the step-Mom since she used to go. (That's right! I live with a gradumate of S.B.). Taking baby steps.
