    Jenn - The constant pressure is exactly what is wrong with their relationship. I tend not to add pressure on him and therefore become the "good cop" or "pushover parent" which is wrong as well.

    I also went to a community college, stopped 2 hours short of my AA degree (my poor mom!). Then went to Beauty School. I did finish that, then after a couple of years used that to put myself through school. Everyone has to find their way in their own time. It will work out.

    p.s. holy crap, 12 pounds and you are putting exceptions on it. Are you crazy? So what if it is 2 pounds more that pre-Christmas, it is 12 pounds less than 7 days ago, jeez girl!

    what she said.

    Also, I did CC to get the prerequisites out of the way and get my study skills crap together.

    I went straight to the University and am kicking myself for doing so. Even though FL is insanely cheap (relatively speaking) it still cost far more than it could have. Also, I could have lived rent free and worked more easily. Here is AZ the university is 5 times more expensive than CC. Let's see...Calc I with 20 people for $300 or Calc I with 300 people for $1500? Yeah, nothing wrong with a good community college.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I got all my basics out of the way (except art and a couple GPA boosters) with AP tests and summer classes at the community college system in Dallas. In retrospect, I probably should have left a few more basic for GPA boosts, but C's make degrees.

    Forgot to check in here today.

    Thanks guys for telling me about your college experiences. I consider you all successful adults so I imagine Billy will find his way too. He wants to apply to a few 4 yr state schools even though he is fine (as we are) with starting at the CC level and
    transferring later. Even I did not want to be a teacher until I was looking at grad school. I graduated from Wells with a BA in Spanish and a minor in Russian Studies. Then it hit me..."What the hell do I do with that degree?". Luckily, teaching was the right fit for me. lol

    The EMF protocol is working out extremely well. I am probably eating a higher fat percentage (80%) and higher cals(1850) than almost everyone on the EMF thread, but It is working great for me. I lost 2 more lbs overnight (I know, not supposed to be weighing). So in total it took 8 days to lose what I put on in 7. Not bad.

    Canio - Believe me there is still plenty of arse hanging out there. : )

    NK - Love the "C's make degrees" quote. I will tell that one to my son and Husband.
