Ah, I disappeared as always.
I truly am sorry I'm not a better, more up-to-date blogger. I just have things going on, and lately I've been struck by fatigue. I might be getting sick. Yuck. School has been brutal this week with tests, quizzes, you name it. I plan on making it out alive though, tomorrow's Friday :).
So aside from the boring stuff, some things this week have been enjoyable. Last night I spent the entirety of the evening watching the Answers Please finals. Our team didn't make it in, but I went along with my advisor and Zack to watch anyways. It was pretty fun, especially with Zack :P. The two of us went to preschool and so on together, so there aren't any awkward moments, we've known eachother forever. From watching we got to see how competitive these brainiacs are, and we hope to be in the competition ourselves next year. Basically, it was a nice time.
As of lately I've been spending alot of my time thinking towards the future, concerning the New Visions program. The medical field seems fascinating. I know if I continue at my school only next year, it won't be all that productive. Most of the seniors now fill their days with studyhalls or meaningless electives. I want to prepare myself for college, and the materials at New Visions would do that. They actually offer an Honors English class, whereas my school doesn't even have college credited courses. I think there may be one for math, but I've always been behind in that subject. Lately I'm catching on though, which is impressive. I want to be something when I leave this town. I don't want to be trapped working 9-5 jobs, stuggling with my bills. I want to be learning and contributing to society, in one way or another. I would love to write books, and I would be thrilled if my words engulfed people, shook up their thoughts. But I can't rely solely on the hope that I can become some phenomonal writer. I need to stabilze myself too, and give myself a strong place to stand in case my dreams fall through. At the same time I find the field to be incredibly interesting, with a huge variety of career choices. I haven't had a whole lot of confidence in my intelligence or ability to work "smart people" jobs while growing up in a small rural town. That's why I'm so interested in a unique opportunity like this.. It would just give me a whole new set of options for my future, and I sure do like my options.
