#5846 It's weird how my parents can spot my shitty friends first. I still don't have any good and decent friends.

#5845 I spent most of my schooling surrounded by blond haired and blue eyed people and I was the only Asian in the neighborhood. I liked being the only one because I'm unique. At uic, there are too many other Asians that I'm no longer unique; this makes me sad. I liked being special.

#5844 So when I get a friend crush on somebody in school, I never know if it's okay to ask or assume if they want to join me for some activity like going to the movies or 6 flags or something. I'm utterly screwed for life. I'm always afraid to impose something like that on somebody else because odds suggest they are not interested. I have never met anybody who is interested.

#5843 I always get embarrassed after my girlfriend gives me butt sex, but I'm happy because it shows that we trust each other and that is the most important thing in any relationship.

#5842 The weirdest uic-related thing happened today. I just came across a uic student in Europe. I honestly thought that I was the only world traveler who currently attends uic. Small world. This just freaks me out.

#5841 The only girls I talked to on campus this entire semester were the ones who gave me a redbull and the ones that asked me to sponsor children.:/

#5839 (Warning: Lengthy Confession)
Well, it happened. I got kicked out of UIC. I didn't get a 2.0 GPA.
I failed both of my classes(Had to help out family at home, so I ended up taking 2 classes to avoid any conflict). I tried really hard, and I STILL came up short. You know how all of this could have been avoided? If I had dropped my ENG 102 class that I failed in the first semester. Yes, dropping it would have caused me to lose financial aid for this past semester, but it would have been worth it. Before I even started at UIC, my mother asked me did I want to attend a community college. I said no, because I wanted to be the first in my family to not attend a community college. Because of me being stupid, that's not gonna happen. Now I'm gonna have to tell my mom all of this, and she will be even more depressed than I am. All of my high school friends and teachers are gonna think I'm dumb. I'm a good kid. I never had this problem before. Maybe if I had went to the disability center, opened my mouth and said that in high school, I was found to be on an Autism spectrum (true story), I would have more time on exams, and they would have been easier.
Long story short, this is gonna be an extremely rough time for me. Whatever community college I go to, I might end up staying there. I wouldn't even care if UIC wants me back. I just don't think it wasn't meant to happen with me and UIC.
It's been real, UIC, but now I must take a different path toward a degree.
Let my slip-up be a lesson to any students who were on Academic Probation. Don't let social life take over your academic life, because it WILL come back to hurt you in the end.
