Bah, yes the Sock God has spoken

Having not been in classes this past semester, I was bored most of the time and very unhappy at my job, but now being registered for full-time classes next semester, I am beginning to worry that I am not going to have what it takes for school, but of course this is all nervous apprehension.

Oh yeah, yes you heard me right up there, I am now registered for Spring courses. As Linus said I had to put my mom into a head lock and punch her in the ear until she filled out the FAFSA. That and I threatened to not come and see her unless she did, yes I resorted to blackmail, and actually no I don't feel all that bad about it. Now I am just worried that for some reason financial aid won't go through and I will have to drop all of my classes.
Right now I am registered for 15 credit hours:
ENGL 1010
HIST 1211 U.S. to 1865
THEA 1000 Into to Theater
THEA 1100 Beginning Acting
WMST 4500 Queer Theory ( Tessa you are going to be my saving grace in this right? right!?)


Yet again, it is that time of year to remember and try to memorialize the past year. I am not sure if I really want to. Don't get me wrong the past year has been great, I have grown more into who I am, becoming my own person and able to stand up to my parents to an extent. Except that when my dad quit his job back in the middle of Nov. I don't have the guts to tell him to grow up and take responsibility for himself instead I pay for dinner when we go out. I still cower under the pressure of my mom. I have made some new great friends, finally decided that I am going to declare as a theater major emphasis in lighting and a minor in creative writing. I Spent six months listening to New Yorkers yell about cable, and could probably reboot any cable box to try and stop it from freezing. Learned to live with 5 other people in one house. But what have I really learned? I can't say for sure because it is lying within the depths of my heart, but I have learned to love, if anything else love. So into the next year I will take with me love, of myself and you all. I will take the knowledge that great things can come from the smallest actions and the memories I have shared with everyone.

Have a safe New Year's eve, and if I don't talk to you until next year have a great beginning of the year.
Love always,
Squid


Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
and call me on and on across the universe.
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box,
They stumble blindly as they make their way across the universe.

Nothing's gonna change my world,

Many people mistakenly think that school is just a training ground for a job you may someday have, but it is actually a great and noble form of work in and of itself. You will be doing something that you rarely get to do in this world - working for yourself. Revel in it, take it seriously, and be a good boss for yourself.
