#1 consisted of cheating.
#2 consisted of a housefire.
#3 consisted of Nick having to pay for a class here because he spent the night too often. And for whatever reason I had to walk to GVSU to visit Lauren (at least in my dream it was like a block from Albion…)
Gahhhh. The first two were the worst. I wish I could turn my brain off.
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out” —
The Swell Season
Once is a wonderful movie…please tell me you’ve seen it. If not, we have a movie date to set up.
What shenanigans do you have up your sleeve?
And if I could make it easier
I would always try to make it easier
But to be a cautious operator
Is the way to
Stop this falling apart
And I have no need
For such things
But to make you happy
Does it make you happy?
And I’ve busted strings on this guitar
Makes me feel like I’m getting nowhere
Could you make me happy?
And if you keep me on your right
Could I keep you on my left?
-Make You Happy, Josh Pyke
But I love him anyway.
Why are so many people I graduated with pregnant or already have a kid? What is going on? Stop being so fertile.
I don’t understand how AZ’s immigration law could be at all considered fair…it’s just making the harassment of Hispanics legal. What does that do, except make the US seem even more rude than we already are? Obama said that the law threatened “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and our communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.” I agree Mr. Prez. Though I can’t say I see our beloved country as the epitome of “fairness” anyway.
But that’s just me.
So hey! Let’s make discrimination legal. Huzzah!
Thank you for a completely wonderful prom, even if I was probably the oldest one there. Now I am for sure done with all things high school.
Ned: I’m not a big fan of the hug.
Chuck: Then you haven’t been hugged properly. It’s like an emotional Heimlich. Someone puts their arms around you and they give you a squeeze and all your fear and anxiety come shooting out of your mouth in a big wet wad and you can breath again.” —Pushing Daisies. (via quote-book)
You are going to lose me if you keep this up.
I just want to be sure of something for once in my life.
I have this really nervous feeling in my stomach and it’s bothering me. I have no idea why I would be nervous. I should be really fucking happy that the year is done in 2 weeks. I should be thrilled about this weekend, seeing all my old high school friends and going to Nick’s senior prom. I mean, I am excited about both those things.
And yet…I’m nervous right now? I don’t get it. I literally feel like I’m about to go sing a song I don’t know in front of a thousand people.
I confuse myself.
I really don’t understand why people who are already dating ask each other to prom.
Isn’t it already assumed?
So Albion College is failing miserably. Because of financial problems, the big people in charge decided they had no other choice but to terminate the jobs of upwards of 15 faculty positions. Yesterday they announced that the jobs of 28 non-tenured faculty were terminated (however, lucky them, they could possibly be rehired over the summer for a fraction of their current salary plus less benefits…yey).
So let’s look at this for a second from my point of view. As it is, the Spanish Dept. (aka my minor), after this year, will have one professor unless they manage to hire someone else (but really, who would want to come here when they know full well salaries are declining and benefits are disappearing?). And who the fuck knows what’s going to happen to the Anthro/Soc Dept. (aka my major). I feel as though I should be able to depend on my major and minor to be here the next 3 years, but at the moment all of that is up in the air. And we won’t know for sure exactly who is leaving and what departments are getting put down the shitter until the middle of May.
The middle of May is 15 days too late for me to apply to another college. And as it is now, I have 2 weeks to apply as a transfer student to K College (which, really, is my only other choice…and I never even applied there as a senior to begin with). I don’t want to go to Western, or KVCC, because Albion screwed me over. This is fucking stupid. Right when I finally got my shit figured out as to what I want to do over the next 3 years, we discover that, in fact, those departments may not even exist here after May.
So the big question is…do I go ahead and apply to K and hope to God I can get that application/interviews done by May 1, along with my final exams and everything else back here? Or do I wait to see what happens after May 15, even though I can’t transfer mid-year to K, and hope to God that nothing here changes bigtime that affects me too much?
Thanks for effing up my life. You rock.
I miss you so.
Is it really that hard?
