TODAY, (Sara < http://www.icecreamandme.blogspot.com/ > gets the coincidence [ by the way, Sara one or two? Did you guys work that out?]), I went to get a bill from college to show that I have paid so that I could have my ID validated. I happened to look at my bill for no apparent reason right before handing it over when I noticed something odd.
(Some background info before the fun stuff. 12 credits is a full time student. If you did not pay in full, classes were going to be dropped in mid-january. In mid January, I had not completely finished putting my schedule together, as I usualy wait for the 2nd week of classes to do that. In order to pay a bill for full-time student however, I needed to enroll in over 12 credits of classes, and so I arbitrarily picked classes that I MIGHT take, with intentions to dump them later if they prove unecesary.As usual, I got most of my courses through overtally and got a nice 16-cred semester going.)
When I looked at the bill , I noticed that I was enrolled in 20 credits of schoolwork. I ran online to check it out. Turns out I was enrolled in a 4-cred physiological class that I never dropped.
Normally this wouldnt be that big a deal, but today is the 16th. I also happened to notice on the schedule at the registrar that the 16th is also the last available day to drop a course without having a "W"-ithdrawl on your transcript. This is a huge mar, particularly if you have any interest in med school. If it came down to getting the W, I may have stuck with the course, only begining attendance 2+ weeks in.
Im not sure what the point of the story was. Am I a man-ditz? Exceptionally lucky? Blessed by G-d? Or maybe its choice "D"?
B) Exceptionally Lucky
C) Blessed by G-d
D) All of the above
