After much research and wrangling, I have actually started classes at De Anza College, one of the 112 community colleges here in California. I am taking both traditional and online classes to make my load easier as I knew I would need to take a few remedial courses (Math, specifically -- I can't place well in a placement test with stuff I didn't learn the first time, thanks to a couple bad apples in my high school education) but I didn't want to get overwhelmed with the time management issues involved with a high-unit class load. As someone with ADHD, I qualify for some assistance, and I will be getting paperwork filled out this week for that, and if I stay frugal I should be able to cover expenses (I will be applying for scholarships all the same) so I can just focus on doing well in school. Focus is both a bane and blessing for ADD folks... we can hyperfocus to exclusion of all else for hours, and the rest of the time have difficulting in maintaining focus for more than 5 minutes. I need to develop time management skills to keep me on track -- I wonder if there's a class for that.
