excuses

I am tired.  I’m working on (but have not quite finished) two new book reviews, and I have a chiropractor appointment and my math final in a few hours.  Also, it is snowing again.

But after that, I’m free for a while.

Anyone got a map?

I’m a little bit at a personal impasse at the moment.  Or a crossroads, maybe.  That sounds a little better, I’ll stick with “crossroads”.  With no job, I have the opportunity next semester to focus more on university and take a fuller course-load when I’m taking currently.

So now I have to decide what to take, which faculty to aim towards.  As soon as next fall, if I take a full load and summer classes, I could be applying to a faculty and a specific degree program – something I didn’t think I’d be doing for another year or so, with needing to balance the now non-existent work and school.

My current front-runners are Engineering (which is what I’d been intending to go into initially) or Comp Sci.  I do like computers and techy gadgets, and my university offers both regular and Honours Comp Sci degrees.  Or I could do something totally off the wall and go enroll instead in a web design development course or something in one of the local colleges. road closed signI’ve greatly enjoyed the web design and site construction I’ve done in the past.  Each of them has their positives, and each of them has their negatives.  I guess right now I need to weigh the options and decide what it is I want to do.

‘Course, that’d be a hell of a lot easier if I knew what I wanted to do. Right now I’m just not sure. The current options are all pretty interesting, but there’s those pesky “cons” things I mentioned at the start. Or I could just say “screw it” to the whole thing and go work at WalMart or Canadian Tire.  They’re almost always hiring.

Presuming Plan B, Win The Lotto Jackpot, continues to fall through, of course.

We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road

I guess my life just isn’t where I though I’d be by now. And I don’t know how to fix it.

I have a Philosophy test tomorrow.

I am so not ready to take a philosophy test tomorrow.

Fuck.

Maybe I should just quit this school thing while I’m ahead.
