I Wax Philosophical...for Financial Aid

I can stay in school!

I checked online today, and I've been removed from financial aid suspension and placed on financial aid probation for summer 2006. I've only taken summer classes once, and when I did, I aced them both. Bonus!

This is excellent news because a) I don't have to drop out; b) I don't have to beg my parents for money; c) I can actually afford books; d) I might make a sizable dent in that pesky credit card bill. I'm not holding my breath on d though. More likely, I'll use the money leftover to purchase Starbucks stock at a discount so that when I can no longer get financial aid because I've been in school too long, I'll be able to use the stock.

I need some opinions here, and I know you kids have them, so tell me if I'm crazy: Because it's going to take forever and a day to graduate, I'm thinking I might change my philosophy minor into a double major, because a) I'm going to have to take some bullshit classes just to stay full-time to keep insurance; and b) If I add another major this late, I'll be qualified to get financial aid longer. Decisions, decisions.

Taking a double-major sounds like a win to me...
