Hello, so I just finished my first semester of community college and I did not expect what was thrown at me. I am 18 and had a 1.8 in high school so I figured now that I am in community college, this was my time to shine. I decided to take hard professors because I wanted to learn a lot, but soon found out that hard does not correlate to actually learning the subject matter. I really want to be a math major at a really good UC. (thinking LA, and UCB, but if I shoot high then I am sure I will be able to go somewhere good) I feel like the C+ in math should make me just want to give up math...but I have always loved it....I participated in competitions for it in Middle School and have just loved it so much. Makes me feel at home I guess. My family situation is/was really bad and I would always lock myself in my room and read about math and do practice problems. I took 14 units this semester and here is how it all played out. 4 TRIGONOMETRY----- C+ (non UC transferable) 3 Economics-----------A- ( I actually really like econ and considering math/Econ) 3 Art History-----------B (hard professor, but this is just an excuse) 3 US History------------B (maybe a B+, hasn't come out yet. I literally learned nothing from this online course) 1 Intro to engineering-----A UC GPA 3.31 Basically, do you think I can go anywhere good? Is it normal for my first semester to not be so good? Considering I had a 1.8 in high school I definitely feel accomplished, but at the same time I feel like this is not going as well as I need it to. Also, is the C+ in math a indicator I should just give up on a math major? The Only majors I am considering are Math, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Economics and possibly like geology or something like that. Next semester I am signed up for 16 units of Anatomy, Pre-Calculus, English, and Music appreciation (classical music).
