In this holiday edition of Deja Vuesday, I’m going to reflect on the post, “Twas The Night For A Dillema”:
Yo it’s the Andy-San here with potentially bad news.
I have been suspended for a semester from UU for my crappy grades. I am appealing it so I may or may not be back at UU this coming semester. But being able to come back is only the beginning. If I do come back, I’ll have to get at least a 3.0 GPA which will require a lot of effort on my part. I talked with E, Dan, and Phil about it and they say that they’ll help me out if I can come back. In the event that I can’t return, I’ll have to get a full-time job and forgo college unless I pay for an apartment near campus. Needless to say, I’m an emotional wreck right now. UU was the best thing that’s happened to me in years and if that’s taken away from me I just don’t know what I’d do.
Oh boy, do I ever remember that night!
The main reason that I was suspended that semester was because I goofed around a lot. I didn’t party too much or anything like that; I just hung out with my friends and didn’t do my homework. That’s pretty much the long and short of it really.
If and when I do go back to college (it might be awhile since I owe a lot), I’ll take it seriously. I don’t know if I would start off part-time or go Steve Pavlina on their candy-asses, hehe! It would depend on my focus and determination, but graduating in 3 semesters would be easier for me than it was for Steve mostly because I have previous college credit (he had to start over from square one). I also know how college works now so I can make sure that the financial aid department is doing their job.
In other news, the DoD project is on hold for the holidays. Once Christmas is over we’ll start work on it again. Thus far, we have the first half of the main track and a rhythm track done and recorded. All we need are a rhythm and lead track, a little ending riff, and possibly another rhythm track. E, Ben, and I have a good feeling about this project and I hope you’ll like it once it’s done.
Well I’m gonna go do something else so peace-out to all my homies and wish me luck with my appeal!!!
Damn man, I miss working on projects for DoD! For those not in the know, DoD stands for Dwelling of Duels. It’s an online song contest where people would submit a cover of a video game song and other users would vote on it. All the rules are explained here on their website. I’ll submit a track for DoD someday, I promise!!
Well, that was fun reminicing about college (even the bad times) and DoD, but I need some food so I’ll see you guys later!
P.S: Check out United States, Paul Gilbert’s newest album with Freddie Nelson. Freddie Nelson sounds a lot like another Freddie I know…
