So last night, I had a very weird, very vivid dream where I was somewhere with friends and we were talking about Kyra Sedgwick dying. Then I woke up and believed for 10 staight minutes that she really had died. It was that vivid.
Then a few minutes ago I look online, and I found out that next season will be the last season for The Closer.
So Kyra didn't die. But her show will next year.
Why did I have that dream??!! I don't want The Closer to end! I love it too much. D:

One more week of regular classes. Two weeks of the semester. I can do this.

I do wonder why teachers decide to give the major assignments the week before finals are do. I would love to use the entire week to study for them, but instead I'll be writing an essay for English (at least I got to pick the topic: Stop Book Banning), write a film annalysis paper, finish up project for Peace and Social Justice and do another paper. I finished two papers yesterday and I'm working on the project, but I still have a major math test to study for, so there's no point in trying to study for that final until that day is over, because I need to know everything about those chapters that day, not all of them.

Two weeks.

So I'm bummed cause my friend couldn't get into my five hour class, and I found out the teacher is a dick. I'm still excited though. It's the only class that day, and it starts at 5:00pm, meaning I have the rest of the day to do whatever, and even though it ends at 10:00pm, my class the next day starts at 1:00pm (and it's the only class I have that day) so I can sleep in. I'm really trying to "break even" as it were regarding my pessimism and optimism.

The Closer comes back on Monday. I love hearing a plot point for a future episode of a show and being excited about it because I have faith that the show can execute it in an awesome way. So many shows have failed there. Bones, House, Psych, Criminal Minds, and even NCIS.
:(
And Leverage comes back the weeks after that. Yaaaayyyyy! :)

Watched Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator. Charlie Chaplin was an adorable man, and it sucks that paranoid people forced him out of the country.

Looking into local nursing homes to possibly get a job. I know they need help in kitchen and need help with laundry, so that's a start.

Two weeks. I realy hope this goes well.

27 days until the semester ends, ahhhh!!!


So I had to do a bunch of volunteering for my peace and social justice project, and I don't mean to sound cranky about volunteering, but I'm glad it's over, cause it was with kids and in the pit of a city that was horrible to drive through, and it was just insanely stressful what with the rest of the project, and my math and everything. Argh, stressful. But yeah, either way, I'm tired of being in classes with creepy people (by creepy, I mean coming up to me and randomly telling me why their lives suck--no hello or anything). Hopefully that'll change next semester. Speaking of which, made my second semester scehedule; I love it. I'm taking German which I'm excited about (even though it'll be hard D:). And the times are just much better (except for my five hour class, that one kinda sucks).

Ok, so I decided where I'm gonna transfer next year. And I decided that I'm gonna major in history and minor in Holocaust Studies. That's kinda what I've wanted to do all along, I just...picked the wrong way of going about it. And my mom's being supportive, but my dad's being a bit of a dick because he was supporting me, and I overheard him telling my mom that he thinks I'm "having no consideration" for them for wanting to go. And now he's just getting any jibe in that he can when anything college related comes up. And he wonder why I don't want to stay for a second year of community college, hmmm...

Also, I'm just wondering, how'd any of you get one of your first jobs? You know, the ones you got during college that may have not been from the school? Cause I've applied everywhere for a job and no such luck. Most of the time, it's cause retail wants "more experience" or something, so I'm trying to look elsewhere, except...nowhere else is hiring. I probably wouldn't be able to do waitressing either, which blows. But anywhere, little help please?

Less than a month. I can do this. It's the same week that Leverage has a Christmas episode airing, and I am fucking excited for that too. Ahhh!! :D

Ahhhh, I hate drama. :(


So my best friend is in a fight with her old best friend (the same girl who's dating that guy I liked) and a bunch of random crap has happened between them. Of course, I'm the soundboard for my friend, and so she's shown me facebook messages (cause they fought on facebook, which was reallky dumb) and it sucks cause I see both sides of the argument. Naturally, I'm siding/supporting my best friend, but it's still awkward. And so the boyfriend (the guy I liked) has been dragged into it cause he's partially responsible for the fight. I guess what it's coming down to is that I haven't really spoken to him or his girlfriend for a while, and I don't think about him as often. I mean, a part of me still likes him, and unless he does something horrible, I will always like him. But it doesn't hurt as much as it used to to not see him anymore or anything like that. I miss him, but it doesn't hurt me emotionally, you know? And at this point, I need to support my best friend cause she IS my best friend. Plus, she's at the school I'm going to next year (despite how it sounds, I'm not going there cause of her---that school happens to be the only one somewhat close to me that teaches Holocaust Studies, which I want as my minor). I guess this just makes me sad, because I knew something like this would happen. Back in June, I knew that our group would separate, and that it would probably not be pretty, and it isn't. Half of us are bitches, and half of us are acting like bitches. I think it's worse cause I knew it would happen, so I'm not surprised, but I'm still dealing with the drama.

So, I only have a month and a half left for the semester (ends December 17th). I am so effing happy. I mean, the classes aren't awful. My math class sucks, but the teacher's nice, and my computer teacher is nice despite his class being crappy. But in English a guy who sits next to me is just insanely creepy and is like a drugged-up version of Alan from The Hangover. I have to spend two hours sitting next to him, and when I try to not talk, he gets offended, I guess. Apparently he doesn't know that when people have bad days, they aren't talkative. My Peace and Social Justice class is another one I'm excited to end, cause we're working on this project that has just stressed me out so much that I'll be glad when I'm rid of the whole fucking thing. I'm tired of math class and math in general cause it's the one subject I am horrible at no matter what, that I have to keep on taking. I should probably make it out of there with a C, but it's still really effing annoying. I'm just really, really tired of college. Everything about it.

I really needed to rant. Thanks guys.

Also, you probably don't know this, but I don't suppose any of you know a website to get pictures of Jack Nicholson on? I want to makes icons of him, but there are never any pictures. Not necessarily screencaps, but pictures of him in the 70's and such. If you know, I'd love to hear about it. :)

Thanks!

Oh my God, this made me laugh so hard. I've literally watched it a dozen times or so.















I love The Muppets. <3

In other news, I'm going to my state's biggest prison tomorrow and hanging out with the inmates as part of a class field trip. I hope it goes well.

I don't have much time on here, but I just wanted to say one thing: I had enough time to read the comments for my last entry.

I don't think I can tell you guys how much I fucking love you.

Seriously, the last week has been stressful times 10, and your comments just made me smile and feel happy about my decision, and I really, really needed that. Granted, it's not like people outside of here are telling me it was a dumb move, but there was always that sense of doubt, that little pause after the, "yeah, that's a good choice!" that had me worried.

Anyway, I just wanted to say a quick thanks. Any bit helps, since as you all know, I have been completely stressed, and not just with this, but with my life essentially changing. True, I'm still living in my house and I see some of my friends at the community college, but still, not all of my friends, and now when I go to school, I get papers that a parent doesn't need to sign, and we're allowed to keep our cell phones on, and we're in classes with kids three years older than us, or women who are grandmothers. I could live on my own without it being weird, and if I ever got into a extremely serious fight with my parents, they could throw me out and it wouldn't be child endangerment (they would never, ever do that though). It's weird, you know? This year I've known in the back of my head that I am an adult...but to be treated like one...and not necessarily "respect" wise (though there's that) but just an adult in general...it's a sudden change, and I'm still adjusting.

Now I'm rambling. Again, thank you all so much. You have no idea how much better I feel. :)
(I feel like I just butchered the grammar in that statement, but as I said, no time :P).

<3 <3 <3 <3 !!!

So the last week has been a major clusterfuck.

Fitchburg messed up my schedule, so I would be taking classes that I did not need, and that would not help me (I know I can transfer credits, but these weren't classes that would be useful to my major at all).
College dorm...wasn't for me. At least this particular one. My suitemates were complete partiers, as were my floormates.
So I had an option: the local community college was still registrations. If I signed up there and withdrew from Fitchburg in the first week, I'd get all of my tuition money back.
So I decided to do it.
Yeah, I know I should've given college dorm life more of a chance, but here's the thing: I didn't have the luxary of time. If I waited and then decided to do it later, I would've lost money. By doing this, I'm taking classes that are actually important to what I want to major in, and it's cheaper. If I stayed at Fitchburg, then I'd be wasting a semester. With this new road, I can do this for a year, and then get automatice addmission into a state school and then take classes that actually pertain to my major.
So that's pretty much it. I'm attending community college, and I'm hoping this works out. Please don't post any comments telling me that I'm an idiot, or anything like that. I don't need any of that. I'm already stressed out enough.
