“The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.”—Chuck Palahniuk (via quote-book)

Well, there’s technically one more day left. That day, however, is going to go by faster than ever before. Then where are we gonna be? Just a bunch of freshmen trying to find our way around college life, blindly groping around in the dark hoping to somehow fit in. Ugh. It’s the first day of high school all over again.
Probably a ton worse, though.
I think I’m way too excited to start. I guess I’m ready to break this sleepy summer I’m in. A summer of fun, but unproductivity. Maybe I made that word up. And there’s a dotted red line underneath it that’s gonna bother me for the rest of this entry. But you won’t know.
So many questions. Will it be fun? Will I get along with the people I end up with? Will transportation be a pain in the ass? Will my professor be a gigantic douche or one of the coolest guys I know? And more importantly, JOB?! Will I finally have steady employment?
Dunno. Hope you all enjoyed your summer as much as I did.
Random side note: You know buildings? And how at night, they light up and when you drive by them you can sorta see into the room and look at all their furniture and how miniature it looks from the outside? I think that’s another reason why I like buildings so much. Each person just going about their lives in their individual rooms.
I got up in the morning, every morning, every day, and took this week like a fucking champ. Just finding the will to get up every morning and make something of our lives is an accomplishment for all of us.
Just got an email from the guy at UH saying he wants to hire me earlier and get me settled in before the semester starts. What a hella cool guy! And now, I guess you can say…I’m nearly employed. Finally! hahaa. After all this damn time. I’m hoping for another job on campus though, I now have a LOT of time on my hands. Might as well spend it making some paper. ;)
Bought my books for college as well. Not only do they break my bank, they break my back! Literally. Practically $500 spent on books this semester. What in the world. Large numbers in one sitting make me so nervous.
Also, quick thought: Don’t you hate it when people bring something up and when you ask about it they respond with “I don’t want to talk about it.” I hate that shit! If you don’t want to talk about it don’t even bring it up in the first place. You end up making me feel confused and slightly offended! Ahaha.
What are your current goals in life...what are your long term goals in life?
Current goals? Be happy, I guess. There are things that compromise that, and it happens to a lot of people, you know? But the goal really is to look past all of that and find joy in the little things. I’m learning to love that fact and to not bother so much with things that the world makes out to be important but in the end, none of that ever really matters.
I watched the Pixar story the other day. Definitely, working for their company would be a huuuge long term life goal for me, but I’m willing to go the distance. They ride bikes around in their offices for goodness sakes! To be surrounded by people with so much positive, creative energy would be fantastic. It’s what I’ve always, always dreamed of. I’m going to make it happen.
