Guess where I plan on interning?
I am endlessly excited today.
There is an art magazine here as well! That shouldn't come as a huge surprise but I'm pretty excited. I haven't really written anything since high school, but I have a lot of photography I would love to submit, like so:
I Laugh in the Face of Danger by ~middaymoon on deviantART
I submitted that last night. It's one of the many fantastic shots I got from my trip to Utah this summer. Minimal editing. There's also this:
Canyonlands by ~middaymoon on deviantART
Obviously this one has been heavily edited. It's my first HDR, and I tried to over-do things a bit in order to get that surreal quality going. I like it but I'm less confident that it's actually good. And of course you guys remember this one, right? I might've shared it here already...
Soft Touch by ~middaymoon on deviantART
Also edited, though I think much more subtly. I really like this one. Anyway, I'm pretty much set on photographic submissions. If I write anything that'd be cool but I'm not feeling too pressed. As for college life, I made a few good friends, almost half of which are actually girls. This is special because the 1:2 girl:boy ratio around here is infamous. Classes are OK except for Calculus which I apparently have lost my grip with. Computer Science with MATLAB is pretty fun so far. I'm trying to wrap my schedule around some swimming, maybe join a freshmen council-type organization. We'll see. I found a really welcoming and sincere church, which is more than I expected. I was a bit afraid I'd get some watered down "church-like" social gathering but I was pleasantly surprised. I'll stick around and see if the atmosphere changes any.
Yay! Yay for life!
To HELL with georgia

OK so in case you guys forgot I'm at Georgia Tech right now! Whoopeeee. Classes started Monday...and it was awful. I have 5 classes this semester (for 14 hours), which isn't that bad at all. It's just that all 5 require my attention every Monday from 10 to 4, with only enough break in between to walk 15 minutes across campus or catch a hopefully on-time trolley. It's hectic and hard on my feet, haha.
I need a bike. -.-
I suspect I'll have to pretty much teach myself Calculus, which will be easier than it sounds because I've already covered some of the material in high school. My instructor is very...unique in her teachings. So that'll be fun.
Chemistry is just confusing because it shows up on my schedule in no less than 4 iterations: one for lectures, one for lab, one for lab recitations, and one is seriously just set aside for when we have tests. So once I get that worked out it'll be easier I guess.
My Health teacher is already getting on my nerves...
Um...I don't really want to post anything tonight. I just felt I should since it's such a momentous time for me. But there's not much for me to say! I have to try a lot harder to tone the cursing down. I noticed that the first day. I DO miss my friends, but I've been Skype-ing Kyle and Emily almost every night, and a few others as well. I just got my new laptop on Thursday (The day before I left) so I've had a lot of fun learning and customizing it. I realized that about 80% of my music didn't transfer over so I'm trying to figure that one out right now. But it's running Windows 7 which is VERY cool and the 4 gigs of RAM let it run pretty smoothly as well. Couple that with the fastest wired network in the US (Second only to the Pentagon, so they say) and I have a pretty premium web surfing experience going on here.
Not that I'll be surfing the web a lot. HOPEFULLY I will be concentrating on my studies. :D
Anyway, I've been feeling sort of sick since I got here. The food is better than I expected, but it will still take some getting used to. Stay cool, kiddies.

Everything is OK! At least as far as the situation with my broski and my twin goes. Like I said, it shouldn't have really been a "situation" to begin with. I apologized to both parties, which they assured me was unnecessary, and now we only have the traumatic split brought on by moving away to college to deal with. Score!
The rest of my life goes on as usual. Me not getting stuff done, stuff like that.
I'm getting really excited for school! I'm just gonna miss these guys a lot. A ton of my friends left last weekend so I guess this is what it's like.
EDIT from Wednesday night:
Damn this situation. -.-
Saturday. 8.14.10 2:59 pm
First, the obvious: I went a bit crazy and decided to change my layout in the middle of the night. Then I fell asleep before I finished screwing with it. Don't mind the mess.
...it is pretty messy. What, the layout? Oh, I meant my LIFE.
So last night/this morning Ryan had his 18th birthday party/sleepover. It was almost the best night ever, guys. Even if I spent like an hour sulking in a tree. So you know to average that out it must have been ridiculously epic. We watched Kick Ass again, and even though it was one of those 20-people-in-one-man-cave deals, I actually didn't have any trouble with people being loud or anything. Probably because it's not such a deep movie. Then we hung around a bonfire, then I slipped off to watch the stars (I saw a late shooting star! They were all supposed to be the night before! Lucky!) and everyone played Hide and Seek. People had been leaving throughout the night, and by then it was 2:30 or something so there were only a few guys left plus Ryan's girlfriend and her friend. This pretty much coincided with my happy tree time (I wasn't going to play anyway because I felt super lethargic). Eventually we went inside and watched TV.
One by one everyone fell asleep except me (because there was no room) and when I went downstairs I found Ryan, Kyle, and Sebring...we had our own little after party. It was especially awesome. We wanted really badly to watch the Matrix but we couldn't find it, and by the time we turned on Blade Runner we were passing out. I went to bed at six this morning and got up at 11. Not bad.
I've hung out with the Universe Twin a lot lately! Especially considering that we first met up this January and then nothing until recently. This week I managed to get her to a movie night (her first such event!) and almost immediately she and Kyle hit it off. It is honestly the most surprising thing to ever happen to me. Story of my life, I guess. Things got a bit hairy with me for a while because all week it was getting more obnoxious, especially last night when I wanted to hang out and they were sort of entangled.
(I am just full of innuendo these days. More than usual!)
Anyway, it'll be fine. I have no good reason to be upset by any of this so I'll just settle for the being-weirded-out that is rightfully mine.
I feel like there's more to say, but Mom's pressuring me to get some stuff done and I feel the urge to not stress out our lives right now.
