I congratulate you on your commendations by whom ever your instructor is. Driving one type of vehicle, and essentially re-learning for another can be a pain.
And, I wasn't humoring you; I thought you did very well for your first GM. You still have much to learn though, young padawan.
Prerequisites are something that is faced all the time with university/college. The Need to do one course, to take another. That's why I'm out of school right now. I had to drop a bunch of courses, and because of that, I couldn't take the latter ones. You need to learn the lessons from one course, before you do the more difficult ones.
And, I can't remember what else you said in your voice post. You should get it transcribed, make it easier to comment on!
Driving tractors and riding lawnmowers is fun. That kind of vehicle I'm used to from my grandmum's farm. (John Deere!)
"I can't figure what I'm going to do as a career."
I'm in the same position and I'm a senior in university.
Some people might say that I've wasted the past three years, having started out wanting to be a Japanese translator and then, upon realizing that it wasn't for me, switching my sights to Philosophy and now to Classical Studies. I could've graduated this semester, or even last semester, if I'd known in advance, but there's no way I could have.
Which is why I don't consider it a waste. Life's a never-ending journey of self-discovery for me; I've learned a lot about myself in these past three years and, in large part because of my change of focus, gained a wider scope of knowledge that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. And even though I still haven't found that one place that matches with me, I've learned through experience what doesn't match up. Even with the future ever unclear, I'm satisfied with the steps I've taken up to here.
I didn't have that many prerequisites here and the ones I did have I enjoyed. It was the general education requirements that rather annoyed me and, while a few of them have been interesting, some were incredibly dull.
But yes. I think the trials are worth it. I may decide later on I want to get into something involving history, or I might go back to game design it depends. This is what I want to do atm, and to try. I just don't know where I'll be going with it after >_<
Yeah the ones I need don't seem too bad, I do need a crap load though...pretty much all of first semester ^^;
