#1311108 - 09/02/06 04:12 AM

So I move to Ypsi tomorrow to move into my dorm. Kind of excited, then I get a message online that all of the staff of EMU is on strike. Meaning that we might not go to class on the first or second day of school. Normally I would be happy about this... But now I get to thinking "great, I pay an ass load of money for school, and I get to use it sitting on my hands"

So im a little angry about that, I would rather be in class if im paying 7K a semester of school.

demand a refund. heh

btw 7k a semester for someone living on campus seems cheap to me, and I graduated in 2000.
I think people at my college were paying roughly 11k per semester to live on campus.

Oh its cheap compared to other schools, just not compared to my tuition which is 4100 this semester.

of course living off campus may be more expensive in the long run, but.... its not a dorm.

Sorry, I should have made myself more clear. First of all, the 19 credit hours starts this Wendsday... I didn't take any summer classes due to the Wedding and honeymoon. Second, I spend between 40-60 hours a week managing a part of my grandfathers construction company, which is great because I choose my own hours and how long I work each day. Now that school is starting, I'll probally work closer to 40 hours. Then I am a Real Estate agent that spends time here and there making calls between classes and while at my other job to set up showings and closings, so I defiently consider that a full time job. I am often up very late sending out listings and doing the prep work for the next day.


I brought all this craziness upon myself because I like alot of toys (snowmobiles, dirt bikes etc...) and I married a high maintenance chick! I love my life though. No complaints, but I sure can't wait to be done with school!

well. My 2nd day here was kind of a drag. I mean the orientation stuff was just a lot of tours and ive already been around campus a couple of times so I didnt need another tour, although I dont mind walking so much, especially on a really nice day.

The night was cool though, there was this thing called Playfair. Which consisted of a bunch of huge group games in which to break the ice and get to know people which surprisingly ended up being really fun. So I met some people which cheered me up a little. But I guess im just having a hard time with it. With getting involved and actually meeting people because I still yet feel kind of out of place... One of my friends said that "it kind of feels like being at camp" which I never really liked going off to camp at all. So maybe that explains why im having a hard time with it...

who knows, maybe when classes start up and this orientation stuff is over it will be a lot better. at least thats what I have been hoping.

I soo agree with you. Waste of time for sure.

Just look at the map in the fall schedule. It will show you all the builders on campus. Just use that to find your way around.

Harry and I will have to give you our numbers in case you need anything.

Also, just a bit of advice. DO NOT trust the advisors, and make sure you take at least 15 credit hours a semester, or you will not graduate in 4 yrs.

So what? If you get out in 4 years, you missed the point of college!!

Alias, it's a chance to start a whole new life. Look at it as a clean slate where no one knows you or anything about you. Make the best of it, because all you have to look forward to afterwards is work and bills, a slave to the man.

Maybe you like sticking around for 5, 6, or 7 years partying and going to class. I personally cant stand school, I cant stand classes, and I cant stand being broke. I want to get started with my career.

You really need more then 4 years of straight partying??

Easy there pal! All I'm saying is what's the big rush in being out in exactly 4 years? Well of course the actual class and studying part of college isn't too thrilling, but the whole expierience is a grand thing.

I can tell we have totally different fundamental beliefs. Money isn't a big concern to me, and I can and will live quite simply. Being broke doesn't bother me so much, there is so much more to life than money and working.

FYI, I'll be out in December which equates to 4.5 years of schooling. Only once did I take 15 credit hours.

Did you meet your roomie Alias?
