The last post talked about my glorious trip to Europe. Well, even though I didn't quite enjoy the experience I miss it. I've been kind of thinking about it for about a week now. Maybe it's because I don't really want to be here, and if I were to have enough time to explore Europe on my own, I think I'd enjoy it a lot more. I do want to go back, but next time, whenever that'll be, it'll be on my own terms, my own planning.
Ironically, the tour manager from my trip emailed everyone from our group today. She talked about her memories with our group and how horrible it was for her when she managed the subsequent tour after our's. It was apparently a 35 day camping tour. I can hardly imagine the horrors that would have been bestowed upon me if I were to go on a trip like that. Our 16 day tour with cabins and such was already quite undesirable, I don't know how anyone can basically go camping and set up tents every single day. Not to mention they also have to like peel potatoes and stuff. I guess it really is camping.
School is ending in a week. I have a 10 page paper to write for my Critical Studies in Sexuality course. I haven't started. I'm thinking of writing it on homosexuality in China, or chinese homosexuals. It seems quite specific actually, but I'll see where it takes me.
It's becoming very daunting. I will be graduating, GRADUATING, from unversity in April. It is unbelievably scary. I will have my bachelors degree, and I don't know what I'll be doing with it. I'm pretty sure that I'll be taking a year off to either volunteer or work. Depending on what I wan to get into, I have to choose what I'll be doing. I'm thinking of either going into Education or grad school. If I plan to get into Education, I need experience with groups of teens because I would want to teach in a highschool. If I plan to go into grad school, I'll probably have to find a lab to work in. I think I'd prefer to be a teacher. The thought of going into research isn't so appealing.
This semester just flew by. I only have school 3 days a week, and that just accelerates everything. Luckily, I'm only doing 4 courses, and only have 3 finals. I'm glad my finals are spread out quite evenly, Dec 7, 12 and 16. I could just cram one exam at a time.
See, I should be reading the articles for my sexuality paper, but I've decided to write in my journal. Ain't I just the master of procrastination? I mean, I don't post anything for over 2 months, and suddenly, when I have like a shitload of work to do, I decide to write something. I don't sound like an university student.
I'm probably not going to end up doing any reading until tomorrow. But hey, I did a 10 page paper for another course last year in one night without sleeping. So, considering that, I think 3 days is plenty. I can't wait until it's all over. I want Monday to come, yet I don't.
Oh, my friends got me a PS2 game as a belated bday present. Thanx to everyone that's chipping in ^_^. I know I'll have many hours of RPG fun considering I usually take like 20% more time than most people to finish a game.
Blabbing will end here I guess.
