So I just want to get this off of my chest and then hopefully I will feel better.  I lost my job(that I actually liked a lot and was decently good at) right at two years ago.  I have been fortunate enough to get to back to school with very little money out of my pocket because of grants and scholarships.  I currently have a 3.8.  I have worked very hard and missed out on a lot of sleep to get that GPA.  I recently applied to finish my BS in EMS to an online program at a school about two hours away.  That program has a few classes that I can get locally.  I had the time in my schedule to get one of these classes out of the way so I decided to go for it.  It isn't an easy class and I didn't expect it to be.  I completed every preliminary assignment appropriately and on time.  And somehow I still got dropped from the class.  So I email the instructor inquiring as to why I was dropped.  And I receive a very terse response basically stating that I had not completed what I was supposed to but that I would graciously be given another opportunity because I have good grades.  I completed everything again and hopefully that will make the instructor happy and I will be allowed back in to the class.

My rant is this.  I find getting an education to be very difficult.  Not the actual class work but all of the red tape.  It is very expensive.  It is very time consuming jumping through all the hoops that have to be jumped through.  And right now I'm just a little irritated.  I know my rant won't change anything but I feel the need to vent.  Every day we tell Clayton that he can do anything he wants to do.  And Chad and I stress the importance of an education to him.  We did not listen to our parents and both of us have had to go back to college after we got married and it is a lot more difficult than doing it while you are younger with less responsibilities.  With that being said we have both succeeded.  No it isn't easy but we have still done it.

Why in the world does it have to be so difficult?  I guess if it were easy everybody would be doing it.

End rant!
