To say that things never come easy for me is an understatement. So, I am used to disappointments and setbacks. I started my Master’s Program on July 5, and I was ahead of the game with school work, I was thriving, I was excited about being back to school. I had a 100 in both classes…last Friday, I noticed I could not access my classes online. It was too late to call anyone Friday, so I waited to Saturday. Saturday I called and I was told that they withdrew me from my classes because they have not receive the official transcripts from Puerto Rico.
I was upset, because the university have it set up where you can request those transcripts online, when I clicked the drop box, my PR university was listed so that is how I requested the transcripts. To make a long story short, I had to get my mother involved. She actually physically went to the college and requested the transcripts, the problem is, it takes at least week for the transcripts to be received. I was angry and sad at the same time. I asked for an extension (now, keep in mind they do have a copy of my transcripts, they just don’t have the official, sealed ones).
Today, I called again and I was told that unfortunately, I will have to wait till the Fall semester starts to get back to my classes. So, pretty much I have to start all over again! Good think I saved all the school work I did those two weeks. So, I am so angry about the whole ordeal, I am going to pretend I never started in first place, and I am going to prepare to get 4 classes going during the Fall. That will be a daunting task, but I will not fall behind the schedule I already have set in my mind.
Everything happens in God’s time, and I will continue my new adventure as soon as I can. Quitters never win, and I am determined to see it through…I cannot wait to hold that degree in my hands, get back to work, and work on another degree. The sky is the limit!by
