Get off the Can, Already?

There is a phrase I have often heard, “It’s time to shit or get off the can.”

The gist of the phrase is make your decision, already.

The problem is that sometimes, that isn’t easy. Sometimes, you might be in the process, and somewhere… Stuck in that process. You don’t want to rush into a decision and hurt yourself. 

I’ve been in the process of making several potentially life-altering decisions. Hence the lack of blog posts lately. (Excuses, excuses…)

The one I am going to actually discuss right now is not earth shattering. It is over whether to withdraw from a class or not.

The class in question is Object Oriented Programming. At the moment I am carrying a D average, but that will shoot up to an A when the 0 from one week is dropped. (The assignment I thought I turned in turned out to be blank.) Prior to that assignment, I had a 95 in the class. I know I am capable of catching up…IF.

If I can get the Visual Studio to work on my laptop. You see, realistically, I am not going to go do work at the lab this semester, because the hours that the lab is open are the hours I am recovering from swing shift schedules.

I think I have finally managed to uninstall the glitchy 2015 version. Now all that remains to be seen is whether I can get an older version up and running again. If not, it’s buh-bye until next summer.

I hate quitting. It feels too much like… Well, like quitting. But sometimes you have to admit that you have lost a battle to ultimately win a war. So, within the next few days, I will have to make a decision.

And there are other decisions that I am really hoping will be presenting themselves in the near future, but those are for another day.

For now, I leave you with a photo of ferrets enjoying bubble wrap and a cat scratching pad. Because cute should rule the world.
