Wel, it's already a community college, so unless I want to be a crappy mechanic or electrician, I can't get much lower than that, and I think I might be failing out anyway. I want to transfer to SFSU to major in Cinema, but my college doesn't have that so I can only get my general education, and I have to get 60 elective credits PLUS required classes to transfer to any State or UC. It doesn't help that the academic counselors screwed me over last semester by having me take three classes that I didn't need. This whole this is tied with a bow by the fact that I have pretty bad ADHD, and even though a psychiatrist has told my parents and PRESCRIBED MEDICINE, but they still think I'm just lazy. And the disabled (ugh, I HATE that it's referred to as that) services there are like, "Meh, we tried. Sucks for you."
Possibly THIS college is not for you.... ?
Perhaps you could transfer to.... I dunno, someplace different:
more/less rigid academic structure?
...or just a different major even?
I REAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLYYY want to get to SFSU because I know I'll be fucking amazing once I get there and I hate settling, but my friend said that there's a pretty big market for potential bartenders down in New Orleans, and it's starting to sound pretty good.
I know I'm not stupid. I just have a difficult time doing things other people find fairly easy.
Are your meds working for you? 'Cuz ADHD frequently responds differently in different people to
different dosages of different meds... I'm the last person to advocate better-living-through-meds,
but you might benefit just from a different scrip....
Oh, and if you've got it, USE IT
. ADA may provide you a whole bunch of benefits just because
you have a piece of paper that says you have ADHD. Look into it...
...and probably most of all, Community College is very often exactly "High School II - THE SEQUEL"...
The idea is to provide either remedial or just extended coverage of high-school general education
material so that you can either go into the job market a little better prepared, or go to a 4-year
school able to write [whatever you're majoring in] papers with complete sentences and proper spelling...
(Yeah, they're supposed
to teach that in high school, but somehow....)
This can be a big turn-off if you didn't really thrive in the high-school setting, suggesting that much
more that a regular 4-year school could be a better choice, especially if they'll take most/all of your
