Last night I returned from over three weeks in Idaho with family. Within two days of the trip, someone stepped on my computer screen (which now looks something like a butterfly wing) and my camera went dead (of course I forgot the charger). We spend a lot of time with family, many of which we hadn't seen in over a year. We also spent one week with Jason's cousins playing Do You Worship Cthulhu and Cargo Noir. There was no internet. It was quite fun, but it's something one would have to experience for oneself to understand. My one regret is that I couldn't get a picture of the abomination of a truck that the neighbors were driving- the cab was literally five feet off the ground! That's Idaho for ya. Other than that, there wasn't much to report.
One thing to note, however, is an important conversation between Jason and I. "Jason," I said, "I'm ready to go back to school." And before I'd finished the sentence he was saying,
"Alright, let's do it. When can you sign up?"
A lesser man would've said some crap about the money.
Of course, we talked about that. I'm going to sign up at Bunker Hill Community College for this semester (class starts Jan. 23). If I get my G.E.s out of the way there, I can establish a good GPA (which my last semester at school massacred) while taking a huge chunk off the costs. Afterward, I'm going to apply to Simmons College. I'm already so excited- I spent the last week of my trip working on my application essay! Access is the only thing that's keeping me from sporting a school sweatshirt! I know, it's dorky, but I'm ready. I want to go to school, and I'm doing it! Whoot! Happy New Start!
What are you looking forward to in the New Year? What are your goals?
