I’ve now been at my community college for two years, halfway through my third. I’m technically just about done with my junior year at a university when it comes to the amount of classes I’ve taken but I failed a single class (statistics, fuck that class) and I was stuck here for A WHOLE YEAR. I’ve taken almost 6 or 7 more classes than all of my other friends and if you don’t know how units work in college each class is about 3-4 units depending on the type of class. Most classes at my college are 3 units. Generally after two years people have about 60 units, I currently have 75.5 units and will be transferring with 95+. That’s 35 more units (about 11-12) more classes than most people take at this point in their lives, but a single class fucked me over and now I’m still in my shitty hometown dealing with shitty people. Once August hits, I’m moving away to Chico, CA, which is about 2 and a half hours north of Sacramento. Chico State is a wonderful place and I’m going to be bringing my “band” there with me as me and a few friends will all be living in the same house and putting on house shows in our backyard. The idea of this excites me to no end. I’m literally giddy just thinking about how much fun I will be having and the people I will be having fun with. Not to mention being 9 and a half hours away from Mission Viejo. 20 years in this area has made me bitter towards most things it has to offer, and it will be extremely refreshing to break free from it. And to everyone who is going away to college in the next few years, take a serious look into Chico State. The academics aren’t ivy league status or anything like that, but the area and experience is exactly what you’d want out of college, trust me.
