Oh, I forgot to mention. I got my AA degree last week. So, yeah, my time at Green River is -officially- done.

I keep forgetting to mention that. Mainly because it doesn't actually change anything Re: my immediate situation. orz

BUT HEY, lol!degree.

It's over.

I'm... alone again.

I can barely remember the last time I did an entry in this thing that was about my life, and wasn't a one-liner and/or joke. So, hell, why not.

School. This is my last quarter at Green River. Holy crap, that's scary. I'm going to be out of school for at least one quarter, though, Re: deadlines and stuff. Which is actually even scarier. *exhales*

Work. Still none. Probably going to be using my off time to get a job, provided I even can with this economy and my complete lack of job experience.

Life (daily). Holy crap what am I going to do with my time when I get out of school. It'll be the first quarter I've ever had where I genuinely have nothing to do and nowhere to go, and that's part of what makes it scary.

Life (social). I'm trying to be more outgoing with some of the people at school, so that I might have something other than my education to take away from my time at Green River. Up till now-- that's for the past two years-- I haven't been very sociable at all at this school, and I'm starting to think that that was the biggest mistake I have ever made. In my entire life. With only a couple weeks left, it's starting to look like too little, too late.

On a lighter note: when you start thinking of a situation like the above in terms of "ranking up S. Links", you know it's time to get a life. >.>;

Life (biological). So I'm turning 21 soon. And no, I don't want anything to do with alcohol, on that day or any other. I still kinda want to do something, though, I'm just not sure what yet.

WoW. Hit level 60 not long ago. I got enough reputation to buy a Swift Mechanostrider, but I'm still several hundred gold from being able to afford my Artisan riding skill, aaaaarrrrggghhh. And the cost of skill training is making the raising of money a lot more difficult. *squirm*

Love. Hahahahahahahah. Ohhh man. Why did I bother to put this here, I'm too private about this stuff.

So yeah. I should really try to do this more often, but I hardly ever feel like it anymore *shrug*

The MMN update, as promised. Only one strip this time.

So. College. I've got myself Anthropology 100, French 101, and Math 102. All of which are interesting, the last of which is giving me a bit of trouble, though. x_x

Why, you ask, am I in French rather than Japanese? Well, for one, there wasn't any level of Japanese higher than 101 available this quarter. If 103 is available next, I'll try to take it. Another is that I've decided to branch out and try to learn as many languages as I can, rather than limit myself to a single language. However, making the leap from Bilingual to Trilingual is a bit rocky... I have a whole spiel on how that works planned and ready, but I won't bore you with it. XD

And for another thing, College is... well... expensive. XD Not just tuition, either, but that's a pretty heavy it in itself. Two out of my three textbooks cost $123, and that was before tax. AND the food is more expensive, too; I've been settling for Cup Noodles every day to keep the load down financially. Then there's bus fare, but that problem has recently been solved with the purchase of a Bus Pass (plus 60% discount through Boeing, where my mom works. XP). So, yeah.

Not a whole lot more than that. Ayup.

First off, MMN has been updated. Two new comics for ya today.

Second, I'm starting college tomorrow. I'm kinda nervous about it. This is relevant to the current topic because A) It will mean less time for updating the comic, and B) because this is my LJ and I'm allowed to talk about what I want to in it. So there. >o<

Third-- apologies in advance, Michael-- MapleStory is my new addiction. Someone make a character on Bera and come see me or something!

And that, my friends, is all for now. I bid you farewell.

I really don't know what to do right now.

I suppose bitching at livejournal is as good as anything.

So, in this quaint little movie in my head, I was going to go off to college at Green River this quarter. Take some classes, learn some stuff, meet some people, be an adult. Life is good. But, it turns out, the little movie in one's head frequently ends up not matching up with reality.

And of course-- I say this with a pronounced roll of the eyes, since anyone with a head on their shoulders could have predicted it-- it's all my fault.

You see, there's this little, minor thing that is absolutely essential to becoming a college student, or to going to college at all. That's a little thing called money.

I knew it would happen eventually-- my chronic procrastination habit has finally become my demise. I didn't prepare the means to pay for it in time. So now, I've applied for a quarter of college at Green River that I can't even freaking pay for. I MIGHT be able to apply for financial aid and have it in time for the winter quarter, but the fall quarter I had my heart set on is looking pretty hopeless.

It's just all so anticlimactic. I was really nervous and excited about it, but now I find out that it was all over before summer even started.

I swear, I'm just like a child sometimes. When responsibility rears its head, I hide away and pretend that it doesn't exist. Then it blows up in my face and I cry about it. Just like I am now. Sometimes I wonder if my dad was right all this time, that I'm really not ready to become an adult. I certainly don't feel it, especially NOW.

So, if I am indeed forced to wait for the winter quarter, what will happen? Simple. Everybody else will be their perfect, responsible little selves and go to college, learn, meet people, and be adults, while I-- having long since missed that boat-- rot at home like the deadweight I am, further testament to the already apparent fact that I have no earthly value within a single cell of my pathetic body. And then complain about it to livejournal. That's what I'm destined for.

So, have fun with your lives, everyone. Don't miss me too hard.

Began researching scholarships and visited Green River's web site last night. Also, I read the handouts from Beyond High School, but I will still need to look at them again. All of those constituted a half-mark on the checklist, meaning "begun, but not quite finished".

Also, I'm renewing my permit on monday. Finally.

I am screwed. I am so totally, utterly beyond screwed.

I just went to Beyond High School, a yearly event where one can attend seminars and get information on colleges, scholarships, financial aid, and the like. And I have realized, more clearly than ever, that I have no idea what I'm doing with my life.

I've procrastinated on researching colleges and scholarships. I have no extracurricular activities, outstanding awards, or really any credentials besides my going-on-six-years perfect attendence record-- and we'll just see how much that matters in the world of academia. I have nothing that would make me even worth considering for a scholarship. I don't have a job, I don't have a drivers license, and I have no idea how I would balance a job, a car, and school with how badly things are going right now. Since I don't have a job, I have no idea how I'll pay for college. Not having a license is seriously starting to take its toll on my everyday life, like having no control over my schedule, falling asleep in class as a result, being forced to go to my dads and being trapped there, having to shamefacedly dodge the subject whenever someone asks me something related to "my car" or "my driving". I realize now that I've been wasting my life away playing video games, or hanging out on the computer like I'm doing now. My AP classes are starting to drown me academically. The SATs are approaching and I haven't studied at all. Not to mention a whole host of personal issues I'd rather not go into right here. All in all, I've gotten myself into a fine pickle, and I can't begin to imagine how I'll get out of it.

If there's any cause for celebration, it's that a) I finally think I know what college I'm going to-- Green River-- and B) I've finally decided on my major (Japanese), which is a HUGE step forward. Otherwise, my life is in shambles.

They haven't invented an emoticon that will accurately describe how I feel right now, and I doubt they ever will.
