Not taking guitar class next year

Current mood: sad

So I got called down to guidance last week, and I had a conflict with my timetable.  I had to pick between the only guitar class, and the only gifted programming class (which is a prerequisite for the gr 12 class, which I'll need for uni :wtf:).  Unfortunately, I had to pick programming.  And in the extra spot, I took pre-sixteenth century history, which I normally wouldn't really consider, except the teacher is, like, top 5 out of all teachers ever.  I'm probably still getting an acoustic this summer, but I don't know now.  I want an acoustic, but now I don't need one...:confused:
But I can still take grade 11 guitar in grade 12 if I have a spare I don't need, so I think I'll do that.  But now demonmouse = :(...:sad:...:cry:
So should I still get an acoustic, or should I wait until next summer?

Taking guitar class next year

So we just got our option sheets for next year at my school, and I was crazy happy 'cuz there were just the right number of classes I wanted to take, so I didn't have to bump guitar for something 'important' me and my thinking of that damn 'future' thing all the time (only reason I took French again). 

This is exactly what I need, because I'm self-taught and know about...oh, I'd say somewhere around NO theory.  Just a ballpark.  Also, it gives me a valid excuse to go buy me an acoustic.  I've been doing some research (a.k.a. reading the "best guitars under $300" thread) and I've got a bit of a list down.  The top contenders are the Yamaha fg730s, seagull s6 entourage,  and Takamine gs340s.  or is it g340s?  I can't remember right now, but it's something like that.  Anyway, those are in no particular order and there are also a few other prospects that are interesting, and a couple that aren't really that interesting at all.  They're just there.  The only thing (and this really bugs me) is availability.  I have access to two really tiny music stores, and one relatively big one that has a room the size of one of the small ones full of acoustics, which is really great.  But the big one is way the hell downtown, about an hour away from where I actually live, so I'd have to get my mom to drive me there.  And all this is made more complicated because I'd like to bring along the only friend I have who plays guitar, but he lives in the middle of nowhere.  So on that front, .

But back to the main point of getting credit at school for playing guitar, getting a new guitar (aw shit, I'm gonna need some money first...), and delving into the wonderful world of acoustics: I'm in a very kinda mood.  So here's hoping all goes well with the money hunt and the subsequent acoustic hunt. 

In conclusion:
