I am riding the bus!

Times are hard out here. Because I was not given enough financial aid for the academic year 2011-2012, I was unable to live on campus as I've always done before. So this semester, I am a commuter student and let me tell you how hard and annoying it is. The metrobus only runs once an hour going to Bowie State University from the New Carrolton Station. What to do? Well for one, my first course of the day which I take 4 days a week (OMG) starts at 11am. However, I have to be out of the house by 8:30am just to be able to get to my 11am class on time. I know, that really sucks. In addition to that, I have two evening courses this semester which both start at 4:55pm and end at 7:30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday. Imagine the stress when you get to New Carrolton Station and realize that all the buses have stopped running for the day, then you have to walk 3 miles home. Well, this is my reality for this Fall of 2011.

I am still thankful to the good Lord that there are people in my life who have helped me out a lot in terms of my finances, and I know that in all the suffering one goes through, there is always good that will come out of it because God never allows his children to suffer in vain. I praise him in the midst. If you are a college student like me, I wish you an excellent academic year with all the success. Stay strong, because the times are changing and people are becoming more and more cold each day. Until next time, be on the lookout for my occassional blogs every now and then. Because my studies take up the bulk of my time, I will minimize my posts for this season. May God Bless You and stay strong!
