School and Work Again

Posted on

The day has come to return to school once again. Ugh, it feels like I barely had any time off. That’s what I get for taking summer classes. My mom thought it was stupid of me to take summer classes, but the fact of the matter is, I told my dad that I would have my Associates’ before May 2012. I don’t think that’s going to happen anyways, with the fact that I am a slow learner because of my autism. I am in the disability services program and even though I’m allowed a maximum of 7 credits, I am still considered a full-time student. This semester, I’m taking English Comp II and Differential Equations. I have no problem with math, but the writing is going to be a struggle for me. I won’t worry too much though because I feel that blogging on WordPress and commenting on YouTube videos has improved my writing significantly. I have been doing a lot more of that since last year. I had to withdraw from English Comp II at the other college I was at in MA, but now that I am ready, I am going to finish what I put off through the past 3 semesters.

Then of course, I got my mom’s new restaurant, which is set to open on September 17th. My mom has been incredibly busy this week, and I have been helping her out. For the most part, I’ve been just standing around, watching her cook. I’ve been doing my part to help, nonetheless. My mom is so nervous, but that is perfectly normal. Sometimes, it’s all about about taking risks. My mom knows that she’ll make a huge profit off of this cupcake business. I’ll be at the register and my sister will take over on the days that I’m not on shift. I probably won’t be paid until next year. My mom still has thousands of dollars worth of construction and starting costs to deal with. The business won’t making a reasonable profit until the word gets out. Once some of our first customers start getting excited about the cupcakes, they’ll start referring more customers there as well. Only time will tell.
