Oh, progressive college.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I chose this school.

But you know what?  I can handle it.  I'm really determined and it's going to happen.  Even though because of my placement, it means I have to complete three projects this year that most people who just start out at a college don't have to do.

I've been really productive here, though, and the really difficult projects will serve to get me skipped ahead a semester, which means I'll graduate after a year and a half, saving myself probably $11,000 in the long run.

I hope I can keep up the productivity when I get home.  It will be so worth it if I can, and so detrimental if I can't.  I accept gifts of lattes and discouraging words* to keep me going.

*you read that right.  for some reason, negative events light a fire under me much more so than positive encouragement. I have no idea what that says about me as a person, but I guess I'll take it.

I get motivated the same way. Kind of a way having to prove people wrong or something. Glad I'm not the only person who works that way!
