Hey y’all!! It’s been a hot sec hasn’t it, time flies when you’re having fun I guess. Three weeks since I moved, damn. Anywho, some updates! I’m still waiting on my FASFA stuff (as Phil knows) and that’s pretty much my main stressor. There’s also some unidentified stress floating around, just from the caliber of change going on in my life. Everything from where, when, how, how much, and with whom, I do everyday things like eat, sleep, study, work, pray, talk, read et cetera – has changed. WHOO COLLEGE!! It’s a very interesting time though and I’m grateful for some change, I have a lot to be grateful for and appreciate – as you all know, if you’ve seen my dorm B) (kind of lonely though). As for the actual educational side of college, I have class everyday. Monday and Thursday are the days holding the bulk of it with 7 hours and 11 hours of class, respectfully. Tuesday and Friday hold only a single hour of class each day. Fun fact, I’ve learned that there’s an equal amount of homework time as class time, so for my 6 hour studios I have 6 hours of homework 🙂 My professors, who are all artists themselves, are broke and depressed – one straight out said, “don’t be an artist”. Really gives me something to think about LOL I should probably just marry rich but for now I’m here. On to more positive subjects, the prospect of family ‘glamping’ or traveling, specifically holiday and next summer, put a smile on my face and a bounce in my step.
Speaking of which, I should work on those savings, leading to my next subject – I applied to my school’s cafeteria and it is the most promising and convenient job so far. I miss working; didn’t think I’d say that but senseless work has been hard to come by recently.
I’m not sure what else to write… I finished all of my Chase sign up stuff finally, I can get $100 by completing 10 paperless tasks so if you want me to quickpay you lemme know :p I’m sorry about the length and disorganization of this but I hope by implementing this “highs/lows” thing frequently it’ll sort itself out. The basis of “highs/lows” is just outlining or listing the ups and downs of the day or week, I think it will be a less intimidating task compared to a more cohesive but wordy post.
Finally, if anyone has any questions – ask away! I’m not quite sure what is interesting or unknown. That being said, here are my questions:
@ Teresa – How is married life? any unforeseen challenges/benefits? how’s the house coming along? what do you listen to on your commute? near plans/goals?
@ Philumina – How’s school/work? what do you do? is Cas getting potty trained? can Liam read? what do they need or want for Christmas? plans/goals?
@ Gabrielle – Do you live alone or in a teachers’ house? do you still do compline daily? any updates on vocational stuff?
@ Mary – How is living with Tefferson? how is work? what do you do at work? plans/goals?
@ everyone – What are you watching? listening to? reading? what are your recent favorites (drinks, experiences, foods, media)? what is a day in the life?
I’ll conclude with my school days off. Thanksgiving: 11/22-25 Winter: 12/15-1/6
