What's Been Down

Even when I don't add much, my blog still gets views. That's interesting... but enough of that.

First off, I am currently in the process of completing four more exams for the first semester of my last year of high school. I'm mad at the study load, but I love the fact that I'll be done with the Catholic institution for good very soon. Ranting and getting mad over it is repetitive and unhealthy! Not much has come up for me to really go on and on about though. I need inspiration...

Second, my college quest is going on much longer than I wished. Although I was accepted in my school of choice, they gave me a disappointingly low amount of financial aid. My parents can only afford sending me one year before hitting a nasty and high pile of debt. The worst part was that everyone told me to reach for the stars, find the best school and everything will work out fine. No one told me to worry about money UNTIL the cost appeared in bold in my acceptance letter. Thankfully my mom is so practical that she recommended to quit before things got further south.

So after crying for a few days that I had so say goodbye to my anticipated school, we applied to some cheaper one in my state. Oh well. I can still go for the dream to get my Masters. Let's hope the Mayans were wrong about 2012...

In the meantime I'm playing around with the Nintendo 3DS my dad got me for Christmas. It's been a while since I had a system recent enough for me to buy the newest games. The last time I tried, I ended up selling the Wii to my cousin. The games at the time were multiplayer or $60.00 (which to me is way too much.) At the time I got good cash for it, but now that Skyward Sword came out last year... I'm pretty pissed.

Yeah, not my best picture. Whatev.

I obviously refrained from showing off what I got for Christmas since it's what EVERYONE did. But the 3DS is one thing I'm happy to have received.

Things have ironed out a bit, and blogging will return like "usual." Whatever that means. ;)

Oh man, that sucks. I'm not sure if I have any dream colleges, but I feel like I don't have one (a dream college) due to daunting financial things and to let my hopes down. Hell, I still have a ways to go, but I don't know what I want to do at all :-S Teacher, tattoo artist, work with bats, etc. etc.

lol. I am almost jealous. I almost kinda wish I don't have a set idea of what I want to do because I eliminated a lot of schools that didn't have a decent anthropology program. (who studies it anyway? XD)

btw, I love the new design of your blog. it's very nifty. :)
