various graduation dates
Tuesday. 2.12.13 1:36 am
So I have four credits beyond my major and minor. Which used to be one, before I nearly laughed myself off a cliff and dropped an unnecessary three-credit course, because there is NO WAY I'm staying here for an entire semester for one credit (no, there isn't another way to earn it before my "graduation date," but it's okay).

So, four. That's two physical education classes, or a language and a conversation lab, or a science and a lab, or a seminar/practicum/stage makeup class and a regular three-credit course, or two dance classes, OR A BUNCH OF OTHER THINGS. Or a combination!

I think maybe ballet or more French.

Anyway. The school has this program where basically they'll train you for free to become a LGBTQ ally--essentially someone to chat with, go to about problems...someone people can trust.

And I'm all about making people feel safe at university. Going to uni is a commitment that deserves all the focus and effort possible, and feeling unsafe/anxious/unwelcome at the place where you not only study, but eat, sleep, shower...?! You'll never graduate!

And by that I mean, statistically, you will never see graduation.

--Sobering considerations aside, I'm going to training, tomorrow night, and I really hope it's everything they say it is.

like the real thing

I love learning new things. I really do. But, ever since watching Drunk History and having my current professor, I spend most of the class time thinking of anything that's ever depressed me, because otherwise I keep getting the GIGGLES.

PS vomiting in this video, DEFINITELY don't watch if that will freak you out.

Winning the lottery
Sunday. 2.10.13 2:17 pm

Screw it, I'm shifting to an interdisciplinary minor and a more rewarding major. I might not have an easy path, after undergrad, but it's better than having an unfulfilled lotto list.

Plus, it gets me out of uni faster--except, I'm low on credits other than my major and minor, which means that I might have to stay behind to take electives. Which kind of sucks, but is also kind of really awesome, considering my lotto list--it's full of things I would like to learn for no particular reason.

I keep carrying around this bolder of disappointment that my parents decided to give me during my freshman year, when really I guess I should have just set it down somewhere where it wouldn't roll over anyone. It scares me off of doing anything I want to do, and forces me to think of the most viable source of income. Man, not everyone is going to make buttloads of money. If we didn't have the electricians, and the high school teachers, and the sewage workers, this place would fall apart. Someone has to do the low-paying jobs.

And I'm not saying that's gonna be me, but I'm also not guaranteeing that it won't be. Just...we'll see! At least this way, it'll be interesting.
