Toward the future
Tuesday. 8.21.07 1:01 am
I'm finally coming to grips that jump rope isn't going to last forever. It took me a while to really process the facts, to realize that I couldn't afford it, in both time and money...but leaving the sport is inevitable. It's going to be hard. I'm the only senior on the team this year, and every year they do a little recognition gig. But for me it will be "goodbye," and even though it's a year away I can already feel that weight forming in the pit of my stomach. I'm definitely bringing my ropes up to Western, I refuse to gain the Freshman 15.

Why the morbid talk of leaving jump rope behind, and why Western? Well I think I've made a choice. My dad keeps telling me I shouldn't be focused in on a particular school, that I should keep an open mind and apply to at least 5. Well I'll be applying to five but there's only really one that I care for, and that's Western Washington University. It just...fits. Financially, geographically, and personally. I need to get away from this house. It's suffocating, I can't even function like myself while my parents are around. If I went to any other public college besides Western, my parents would make me live at home to reduce $$$. Sucks for them, because there's no way in hell I'm sticking around. So Western isn't the most presigious, most recognized, blah blah blah. That's not what I'm looking for. You can get an education anywhere, it's the experience that really makes it worthwhile...

Since I'm a roll with this college business, I might as well divulge my intended majors. Or something. I don't really know. Psychology and neursocience has been something I've always considered, and recently journalism or something in the creative writing field have surfaced in my interests as well....though I don't really see either course of study having a very bright career outlook.

Mostly college stuff, scholarships, and jump rope lately. Registration is tomorrow...bleh. It reminds me of the impending doom that is school. On the bright side I might go see SUPERBAD yessss very exciting. Peace out, Nutang.

OH. And I almost forgot to mention. I saw a bit of High School Musical 2, and I had the distinct sensation of numerous Mickey Mouse-headed crows pecking viciously at my eyes. And ears, especially when it came to Vanessa Hudgeons. How do you even spell her name? It's not important. As usual, Disney is really milking this cash cow, airing all these "specials," and "chats," and other miscellaneous programs of stupidity and pseudo-jolly laughs. Sometimes I think I watch these things just so I can be mad.

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

You geek.
Props for creative writing! wOOt! I'm probably more into physics than neurology, though. :D

My mom's not as bad, I think. But I'm definitely itching to leave. Still have no idea what I'll major in and where, and I'll be a sophomore.

Too bad for your jump roping. I take swimming as more of a hobby, not too seriously.

"Davey Whoever"??? :0

I'm hurt. :(

And are you telling me you've never seen any of my links? They're all over the place!

I hate watching the Disney Channel.
They play the same things three million times a day, and every commercial break is the same. It is so annoying.
I'd rather just watch what they show on Saturday mornings on ABC. At least that has some variety.
As far as High School Musical 2, I don't really care. I'll just wait 'til it came out on DVD, like the last one. But whatever.

The man who is portrayed in the picture that is my background image is named James Dean - a famous actor from the 1950s. He is known for playing the roles of troubled, angsty teen-types, especially in the movie "Rebel Without A Cause".
He died at a young age of 24 when he hit his Porsche Spyder into another car just before they finished filming "Giant" (his last movie).
Today he is quite a cult icon. And stuff.
...Yeah. =D

its good that you have your mind set on college. I would have been going into my senior year of college this month if I had gone right out of high school. but I didn't so I'm not. and I don't blame you about not wanting to live at home. I much much prefer living on my own.
I watched high school musical 2 the other night. It became more of just background noise rather than holding my interest. oh well.
and actually, I don't really like popcorn ... I need to be really in the mood for it, otherwise I don't like it. its kinda the same with potato chips. =]

Havok. With a 'k'. And I would put some of those little hearts frostbitten likes to use but I don't know how. :P

Good decision.
College is fun.

I want to see Superbad.

I also want to see Vanessa Hodgens( How the hell DO you spell her name?

In a white wedding dress standing before me saying "I do."

If the thing with Zanzi dun work out, of course.

And yeah, that second paragraph was how I was feeling two years ago. I chose UT San Antonio over the more prestigious UT and UTA because it was further away. Coming here gave me the opportunty to live on my own, 'ya know? And.. I dunno. I didn't have to be that kid I was in HS back at home because I was given a blank slate and could just be.. who I wanted to. Hopefully you will find the same.

I gave up gymnastics because of a totally different reason.. Though I salute you to want to continue with your jump ropes. Good luck!

Well, I just started that game a month ago. I'm yet to get the hang of it, though if you want to try, I can give you the website. I'm starting with more drastic strategies right now because the contest in my investment club happens to end on Monday.

Oh, you can try applying for sports scholarships, I think it exists there since it exists here too.

when I was living in Tucson, I walked. luckily the main things I needed {ie: work, the grocery store, fast food places, etc} were all right across the street. no more than a 10 minute walk. if I needed to go anywhere outside of the intersection I lived on, I'd bum a ride with a friend. I tried not to do that too often, unless they offered; I hate having to rely on people

It is a game where they'll teach you how to play the stock market. It's according to the real time stock exchange, quotes and prices.
