Where does this leave me?

I am so confused. I thought that I had a plan and then when I was told that if I wanted to start back at Marshall in January - I would have to start over from scratch. No way, no how.

Now what?

Most logically - finish my already close to being done degree at JBC. Sounds simple enough.

If only it were simply . . . .

JBC won't let me take any classes that I need at other colleges and transfer. so, here are my options . . . .

Plan A: I have to CLEP (which I am not smart enough to CLEP Bio or History - which I need both) and beg on my knees while promising my first born child to the Distance Learning office at JBC that no, it will not take me another 2 years to finish two classes.
Problem: Um, I just don't see any of that happening.

Plan B: leaving my husband, my bunnies, my house, my work, my kids and moving back to JBC to finish up the last 4 classes (assuming I pass Systemic Theology tomorrow night) and work a job with enough hours to still make a house payment and some utilities. And if I pass those last 4 classes, then I would be able to actually, one and for all, graduate in the spring. 3 years later than originally scheduled.
Problem: Hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it! I DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE MY HUSBAND for 16 weeks.

Plan C: Try and CLEP 2 classes over and over again till I pass. And contact KCU to see about attending class for my last 2 bible classes. Possibly - but retarded JBC will more than likely reject the credits unless I am on campus.
Problem: The whole CLEP thing and who knows if KCO others the specif 2 classes I need.

I need to finish up this useless degree so that my husband will be proud of me. So that my family will quick saying behind my back 'she shouldv'e waited on getting married'. So that Rick's family won't look at me like a complete loser.

I don't know what to do. Expect grit me teeth and get this horrible experience over with so that I can move on with my life.

I just wish I knew how to do that . . . . .

  1. All options are sucky that's for sure. Definitely not an easy decision. But I can tell you that I myself probably would not have passed the CLEP's while at Johnson either ( I might now since I've had the stupid anatomy classes). But they are extremely hard. The other one is not great either, but the good thing about it is two things that I can see from what you said, you're better suited to take classes than big exams like the CLEP (you are able to do that) and you spent many months on a long distance relationship with Rick before you were married, something many find it very very hard to do. Who better to deal with it than someone who already did do it during some of the crucial parts of getting to know someone. But honey, this decision is a major tough one, no doubt about it...Love you
