What's a boy to do?
Wednesday. 6.6.07 1:09 pm
"Go quit your job, Joe, and do what you do..
Go be a writer, Joe, and work those issues.
Go break some hearts, Joe, they'll forgive you.
Just do what you do."

Things to write about in the upcoming weeks :

Law School - Caitlin tells me just about every week that I should forsake this quest to become an attorney and pursue a career in writing. Don't get it twisted, this interest I have in law is no facade: A part of me really does want to be a prosecuting attorney if for no other reason than to make business cards that read " Jon, Bringer of Justice! " and have my little pink/purple avatar stamped to the upper right corner... but when it's all said and done, I'd rather be a writer. It doesn't matter what I'm writing, either. Reviews for a videogame, scripts for a movie, or donning the title of 'Author Extrodinaire' and penning a novel(Goan numero uno). But... the road I must travel to reach that goal... it's alot more murky than the road to being an attorney. Which brings me to...

The Institute of Law and Public Affairs - Ranked 3rd among all law school preperatory academies in these here United States. I applied... got accepted(suprisingly, given I was/am only in my first year and they usually reserve slots for upperclassmen.) and as I sit here in Downtown San Antonio, 'studying' in the library(I'm reading abunch of Nutang blogs.), I'm starting to regret my decision. Why?

Family/Friends - I miss my family.. Okay, not so much my mom and dad( a little.) But I really miss the little sister. She's going into the 6th grade come Fall. Oh, and I miss Anh.. and her bed. I promise, it's the best bed in the universe. Five long weeks and four more hours til I drive about three hundred miles on both I-10 and I-35 to get home. Anh... Yeah, I miss her while I'm here. Know who else I'll miss?

Adrian - One of my three roommates from last year. We did not have as many meaningful conversations as I had John, another roommate, but we were close. Living with those two and Chern/Matthew(foreign exchange students from Malasya and Singapore, respectively) gave me the sense of Camaraderie I once felt for my football teammates for the six years I spent on turf. I'll be living with John(Yay) and Matthew(Eh.) in an apartment offcampus come fall, but I'll miss Adrian. Him and Brittany are both gone from my life. Perhaps forever.

So, that's what? Four entries? I'll start working on them as soon as I find the time between reading hundreds of legal cases, briefing them, and writing essays for a technical writing class.

Just do what your hear tells you.. It's you're future. Haha! Reading blogs when you're supposed to be studying is no biggie.. A lot of us does that. And Jon dear, it's Malaysia.. LOL!
Don't birds shit on almost everyone's car?

I would say follow your heart and your true passion... but truth is, especially nowadays, sometimes that doesn't take you where you need to go to survive. So... do what you think is best. That's all I can really say, me being only in high school still and all.

And your comment made me laugh. For a sec I was like, eh?!

I think studying to be a lawyer wouldn't hurt your writing career in the least. Lawyers learn to pay attention to detail, they learn how to be succinct-- a lot of English majors go on to be lawyers because clever, clear and persuasive writing is advantageous in law. One of my favorite authors (Terry Brooks- he wrote Sword of Shannara) was an author before he was an author. So I say... do both!

I mean, he was a *lawyer. obviously I don't pay enough attention to detail.

» crz4manga on 2007-06-06 09:34:34

everything is fine. Thanks for asking. :)
» Princess_00 on 2007-06-06 09:41:26

life is harrrrrrrd
» of_your_mind on 2007-06-06 10:37:36

hmm, that's tough choice between becoming a lawyer or a writer. Both are promising careers.
I haven't quit my job quite yet. I still have four weeks. So I'll have 3 more paychecks until I move.
Tha'ts cool about getting the schedule that you want. Sleeping in is definately nice.
» LostSoul13 on 2007-06-06 10:47:03

If I ever get away, I'm not going to miss my brother. Maybe it's because we were born with too little of an age gap. :P
» randomjunk on 2007-06-07 12:22:54

I'd like to send you a friend request but your link for that was not in the usual spot. I'm new so I'm still trying to figure this site out. Would you please add me?
» DragonGirl on 2007-06-07 03:48:54

you're in law school ... cool... my cousin just finished law school and is taking the bar this month. Don't worry she read blogs and did some blogging herself when she should have been studying too lol.
» DragonGirl on 2007-06-07 04:45:10

hahaha, only when I have a fever of 100 degrees or more. Otherwise I don't sweat. Period. Because girls don't sweat.
» Zanzibar on 2007-06-08 08:44:29

I couldn't agree more. Can we put a little curtain between our beds, too?
» Zanzibar on 2007-06-08 03:15:49

Ok my fault if this comment is really random but I guess my browser isn't showing your page correctly so I had to highight everything to read your entry.

But yeah, community college is very much the economical choice. I just don't know if I want to go to school over the summer. Practical? Yes. But after this super fast quarter at UCSD I don't know if I should rather step back and breathe or jump in and keep going.

And I think you can be like Ace Attorney: Action through words.

Hahah, alright, Texas it is.
» Le_Jes on 2007-06-08 05:40:51

that's what your mom said.
» Zanzibar on 2007-06-09 12:51:45

Because I like it.
» Chloefoxx on 2007-06-09 09:21:40

Are you implying that I'm a drunk?

Because I don't take kindly to baseless assumptions about me.
» Chloefoxx on 2007-06-09 10:46:28

Hahah, yeah, of course not. Men are manly. Grr.

So... how did you deal with it? Or resolve it? Or something? Quite frankly, I'm about to lose my mind.
» Le_Jes on 2007-06-09 11:01:00

Well I do belch loudly a lot so I guess your comparison isn't too far off.

But I'm certainly no drunk.
» Chloefoxx on 2007-06-09 11:09:17

Haha, good luck with that. I'm sure you'll do just fine. Luckily my class had no quizzes or tests or any of that sort. Just a bunch of reading and writing.
» Cher_lyn on 2007-06-10 04:09:15

I updateeeed.
» of_your_mind on 2007-06-11 01:04:45

Ech, you're right. I should've known better. But I didn't think it'd be bad 'cause I was only talking about him saying that I don't think I ever really loved him... isn't that a good thing to hear from Kyle's point of view? Feh.
» Le_Jes on 2007-06-11 03:09:32

I have two tattoos right now. one is the chinese characters that spell out my name {Cheryl} and the other one has 6 zodiac signs in a circle around a heart. Above it says 'life may end' and underneath it says 'but love is forever' {the zodiac signs stand for the 6 members of my immediate family, myself included} I have pics of both posted on Nutang somewhere; you just have to look for them
» LostSoul13 on 2007-06-13 12:38:34

haha awesome. good luck.
On all that stuff that takes 398493189042819 hours to do.... and I'll quit slacking if you will =X

"I dun' want John Mayer staring at me all month long..."

Then don't stare at him. Or don't put him on your computer. lol

yes, I do have more of a wider variety.
I'll upload some of them [tomorrow?...] and make a page to showcase them all for downloading.

Never actually got a chance to play Wind Waker. I stopped playing video games for the most part all throughout college. Stupid me thought I'd have more time to play them after graduation. WRONG.
» ranor on 2007-06-14 12:43:51

wow, your influence must be insanely obvious.
i have a friend who goes to school in san antonio, her names tricia. i think with both of y'alls influences, i would blow everyone away.

sadly though, i will not be able to go to san antonio in the fall. stupid highschool gets in the way.
» bananaface on 2007-06-14 07:43:58

I met Zander through Danny, so I'm going to safely assume that's where he got my address.

He really is creepy though. And it sounds to me you like Kyle. ;D Not the crushing like, more like, you approve of Kyle.. in a way.. -babble- I'm going to stop talking now.
