Good afternoon, everyone. Timmy here. I would just like to give an update on a little bit of how I'm doing and the reason why I haven't posted most of this month. I am still alive (LOL) and I am doing well. Now to cut to the chase about why I haven't really been posting. You see, I ran into a few minor problems in my academic life over at Wright College, where I am going to school, this month. Thinking my midterms that we're supposed to take were going to be last week, I was putting all of my energy into studying for those the week before. But then I find out my midterms are this week, tomorrow to be exact, so last week I put my energy into studying and am doing so today. On top of it, I ran into a struggle with my Math class and I had to end up dropping that class. I am the most horrible person at Math and I don't understand it to save my life, and being "academically honest", as Wright wants us to be, I decided to drop that class, as I was failing it anyway, and I did not want to get kicked out at midterms. I was failing this class despite all the times I asked for help and went to tutoring, so it's not I didn't try. With that said, I am a part-time student right now with every intention on going full-time again next semester, which starts in January. Lastly, there have been a couple of days here and there where I listened to the radio for a short period of time, and didn't hear anything pertaining to our area, so I decided just not to blog on those days.
So there is the reason(s) why I have not been posting. I am still in the neighborhood and I still want to work with the community to make it better, but I have to put my academic life first in order to get where I want to be, and that is exactly what I have been doing the last three weeks. With that said, I will start blogging regularly again after tomorrow, once I get these midterms out of my way, coming on-board with 14 on Thursday. I plan on blogging everyday for the remainder of this month after tomorrow, and I do plan on blogging most of November, although I will not be monitoring the last week of November because of finals.
I have missed all of you and hope everyone is doing well. I sincerely apologize for any interruptions of service and for any inconveniences this has had on any of you.
