I hope everyone had a safe and happy celebration last night. I spent the night at Richie’s and we had a very cozy evening complete with food, TV, and a little champagne. I came home around eleven in the morning and ate some Ramen and watched American History X with my father. That movie is so amazing. I don’t agree with the racism element but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a good movie. Which I do. Edward Norton is definitely one of my favorite actors of all-time. He’s so awesome.
Since then I’ve been cleaning and playing WordJong, my latest obsession. It’s really fun but mostly addicting. Ha. If you like Scrabble and MahJong you would love this game. I’m going to try to pick it up for my DS sometime soon.
I go back to school in about six hours. I really do like school but I like being home so much more (don’t we all?) and it’s always hard to go back after being off for a while. Especially at my school where I have to walk ten minutes from my car to the door of the school in the cold/snow. Damn parking lots being so far away.
One last thing I wanted to mention is kind of a big deal. I’ve always been pretty set on majoring in English/education and minoring in writing. But lately I’ve been considering minoring in history instead. I love writing but I will certainly be getting a lot of writing assistance with English as my major. Plus if for some reason I get to college and I try as hard as I can but I just can’t meet the writing expectations, I don’t want to have wasted so much time/effort on the writing minor. I will always be writing no matter who tells me I’m good or not good at it. I really love history and I want to study it as much as possible. I think it’s amazing to have broad knowledge of history; it’s really something to be proud of, to know so much about your backgrounds and where we came from. It’s quite interesting. I don’t know. I’ve just been thinking about it.
I start this online Philosophy course in a few weeks. I’m pretty excited about that. I think Philosophy is incredibly interesting as well – it is an element of history. I wish I could just take hundreds of thousands of classes for the rest of my life. Haha. I love to learn.
I guess I should get some sleep now.
Edit: I was just researching UMass’s academic website and for education, you minor in education and major in your respective field. That is really amazing because that means I can double major in English and history rather than minor in history. That leaves a lot of room for more interesting classes. I’m very happy. I think I could major in Education if I wanted to, but a minor is fine with me for now. That’s just how I feel at this point, at 2 AM, nine months before I start college. Ha. (Wow, only nine months? That’s awesome.) I love thinking about college. It gets me really excited.
I’ve spent quite some time on their website before, looking at the required courses for English. Their classes seem so much more interesting than any of the other schools I applied to. I will be absolutely devastated if I don’t get in. I got into these other schools that I don’t care about, so if I’m rejected from my number one I’ll probably cry. I will cry. Haha. It’s just so different than my other schools in every way; from academics to campus life to number of students in the school. I think I will love it. I hope I love it. I hope I go, that is.
Okay, I really need to stop doing this stupid shit and go to bed. >:o
