Well I read through the whole thread. I'd like to think everyone for supporting me and giving me some advice. I hate screwing up my first semester, but I don't feel bad since I know I still have four years of school left. I know I can get A's next semester. I've never been afraid of a challenge, and this is certainly a challenge.
During this winter break I've reflected on my past semester and determined for an engineering I just didn't try hard enough as I would like to think, thankfully I have plenty of time to make up for my horrible grades. For now I will have to just chill out and accept that my first semester was a disaster but will definately try to the most of my abilities next semester. I do have 26 hours worth of 'A' transfer credits I plan to claim so I do hope that will boost my GPA up to a decent looking grade next semester.
SportstownUSA, I read your post and I'm considering changing my schedule to have Moore. I heard he was a good professor and by you saying that as well it definately helps me restructure my schedule for next semester. Next semester I plan to do many things I didn't do this semester. This is a well learned lesson in life, and I don't think I'm the first student to suffer from this type of problem. I'm not an idiot and I would like to prove to everyone that doubts me that I'm not an idiot.
I've never had anyone in my family go to college. It's hard to come back with a C GPA, but I have to deal with it. I really want to be a Civil Engineer and I will try my hardest to do my best possible. Perhaps this semester was a fluke. I will not make up excuses though and just face this like a man. Sports, I would like to meet you.
Thank You very much ISH posters,
