There and Back Again

School is coming up fast (ending fast, for that matter) and as usual I’m undecided as to what I want to do. I’m two classes ahead, and I already have pretty much every elective I can count. I randomly picked a couple of philosophy courses that I can substitute for other required ones, bringing me up to 10 courses. But there is still the possibility of getting enough math classes to be able to apply to teacher’s college. I can see this turning into one of those important decisions that I make on instinct alone, because my attempts at rationalization in the last couple of months have led me in circles.

Before I can decide for sure, there are a lot of people I need to talk to. I need more information. I need to know if getting those extra classes is necessary for the teaching requirements. I need to find out exactly which third and fourth year courses I’ll need since they were changed last year. I need to see which math classes are offered that I have prerequisites for, and if I’ll need to take more first year courses.

It’s kind of a mess. Especially since I could just decide not to worry about it. That would mean taking less courses during the year, and maybe grabbing a couple in the summer again so I won’t have many to take in fourth year. The plus there would be that I could spend more time with the courses I do have and get better marks for admission to the M.L.I.S. I’m a little anxious on that front. I’ve done alright, but nowhere near as good as I’d like. I guess I can wait and get my last mark for the summer and see what my GPA is then.

I should return the DE tape and pay the business office on Friday. At least that’s something easy.
