Non-easy child diva and I were visiting with our neighbor, B. B asked non-easy child a question to which the reply was "yes". I was shocked, couldn't believe my ears. "What did you just ask her?" "I asked if she missed high school." I tell you, I near fell off my chair. Non-easy child repeated, "Yes, I miss the work at high school. Collage is hard." Why could she not have figured that out while still in high school? Sigh She is taking one class only this semester. She is on academic probation for failing her classes last semester so she has to pass this class. I think it is world cinema? Then we find out it is a 2nd year class! Doesn't sound good but she says she likes the class and is willing to put all her effort into it. She likes the instructor so is comfortable to ask for help. She also said something about a writing center on campus to get help at. I so hope she learns to love on campus classes. She is meeting new people and hopefully will make new friends who will support her academic goals.
