Discussing decision making with a 19 year old. First year of college under her belt. However, she did it in her bedroom in her grandparents home. Not what she expected. She is going to be off to Portland in August and in an apartment. Discussing life and the choices we make. She is unhappy with a teacher she had and is discussing ways to handle this. Seems the teacher picked one student (not her) and picked on them (over zoom) and made a lot of people uncomfortable.
Trying to tell her that sometimes it is more important how you adapt to what is thrown at you than anything else. A big part of college was learning to jump through the hoops of professors and program rules and regs. Getting applications and papers completed on time.
Every decision you make is important. She can make a complaint or she can go on and forget about it.
No one said it is easy.
Have a great Thursday everyone.
