good news, bad news
It must be true that when God takes away something, He replaces it with something bigger and hey, I am not complaining.
The grades are out for the term that has just ended and surprisingly, I had no failing grades. I think my efforts had finally paid off and for the first time, I felt certain that I did the right move in resigning from my job last December. I was just too happy to tell my mother, I knew she needed to hear something to cheer her up for a change.
On the not-so-brighter side however, Engr. Jones, our acting dean, rearranged the schedule I did for myself, extending my graduation to December from September. He even exclaimed it was the perfect subject combination for me. And so after the incoming term, I only have 4 subjects left, one pair of which is a pre-requisite of the other so I would not be allowed to take them all at the same time. Well, I guess it is really the way it is. Nobody can have everything they wanted all at the same time. And so with gritted teeth, I am just taking everything as they come.
Classes ended last March 15th and I have just been on my 5th job application interview since. I was talking to a job interviewer from Convergys this afternoon and suggested that I talk to my mother regarding my plans whether I will have to stop school or not before I sign the contract. The good guy was giving me at least two days to decide because the position he was offering me was on a shifting schedule (sometimes even shifting location) just like all the other companies that I had to let go (almost all just right before the job offer).
My mother has no idea I've been looking for work again, I think I'm beginning to be desperate to take her away from our home and I kew I would need money in order for me to do so. But since I'm not getting lucky these days, I think the easiest -and seemingly the only possible - way out would be my graduation. And if things go well, I can make it this September, finally.
