Yeah renting is a great idea. When I took a class at the community college during high school I rented used books from the book store, it really does save a boatload of money. What kind of sports did you play?
Yesterday I accomplish a goal I've been working towards for a while and walked 10 miles heart I'm so proud of myself lol. Running is my next step as well, but I don't know where to start. I've never "ran" in my life, only sprinted a few feet to catch a bus or something a few times a year. Even as a kid I hated PE and refused to do any running. It seems like it should be something natural but I have no idea how to run. I hope your ideal classes are open too, but at least now you're in. So if you don't get them this time around, you'll be able to next time. Right? Is that how that works? Idk I should try going to college sometime.
