Hey Jimclark - I just graduated high school and now I am going to a community college here in my same town and going to live at home still. Getting my general AA with a few classes in computer field. I want to ultimatly get my four year degree and get more into the computer field such as being a Systems Administrator or somewhere along those lines. I am very computer savvy, I type very fast even though I need some work on my spelling as I'm sure you've noticed. I am going to pay for college basically on my own with my Lifeguard job locally. Im sure I wont have muc Scrapping to worry about.

The reason I am not so sure of what career I am going for is because as of last year in july ... up till June 11th this year I was signed up to go into the Marines and ship out on the 11th of July... extremely condensed story is that the Marine personel in Seattle and I put together a contract and I signed it. 6 months later, my graduation day for high school they call me in the morning telling me that my contract is invalid cause of my test scores on the ASVAB. Well they had plenty of time to tell me that so i could remedy it and didnt say a word, then tried to put me into something completely different. yada yada, so on so on. I told them to discharge me and they said they ahve a full year as of my original ship date to do that. Im not one to sit around and waste time, my best asset is my time, and i know that. So here I am enrolled into college. All the scholarships i didnt apply for thinking id be fine, have really started to haunt me. Post back, thanks.
