Almost done with schooling
    #4181184 - 05/16/05 04:54 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

and I can't fucking wait.  Its weird, just last year I was thinking that school is great with all the free time, learning things, and not having much financial worries due to parents supplying room and board. I was dreading going out to the real world with 40 hour weeks.

But now I just hate the feeling of financial dependence, detest living with people other than my fiancee, and hate the constant feeling that I should be doing something (i.e. studying, writing a paper coming up).  Not long now :yesnod:

I know, I know, when I'm out working the 40-hr weeks you say I'll be pining for the days of school, but I can't escape this feeling right now, and really I'm more looking forward to the future than lamenting my current situation.

Yeah, so do I--just not for a few months.  And I do worry about it, what with the limited functionality of a political science degree :tongue:.

I am back in school. I fucking love it. I could really do it forever because I use what I learn everyday all day as soon as I learn it. If I could get paid to go to class I would love it.

I also have just one summer class left. First one was today...it's Monday Tuesday Thursday 10-12, not bad...teacher seems cool enough.

My dad pays for my rent right now too Tao and my lease runs out on Aug. 8th and I have to find a job and then roommates cause this place is too expensive for me to keep if I am supporting myself...sucks, I got so used to living alone.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I almost wish I had taken your guys' route and went straight to a university, but honestly I love where I am at. I may not have gotten to experience the many wonderful things going off to university has to offer, but rather I have learned many skills and otherwise lived a successful life while working and going to school full time.

I've had my own place for almost a year now; I crave independence, both physical and monetary.

I just finished and got my commerce degree 2 weeks ago. I've been hating school for the last 2 years and in the same loathe my financial dependent state.

I'm unemployed and almost scarred to commit to a job because i don't want to pick the wrong career.

One thing I'm really happy about is that I now have more freedom to learn and read up on subjects that actually pick my interest rather then take courses for the sake of getting a degree.

I have one more semester, then I'm done. Don't know what I'm doing after that, but I'll figure out something. It'll definitely be nice to have my own place.
