Tuckered Out

I’ve decided just now that I think I’m going to be a fifth year senior. I’ve come to this conclusion based on the fact that there are so many classes I really want to take. There’s just no way I’ll be able to squeeze all of them into my remaining year and two quarters. I’ve already registered for classes for next quarter. But it was really hard to decide. I wish I had more money…then I could take all the classes I want.
I’m sad that I won’t be taking any theology or philosophy courses next quarter. I love those classes. I don’t care how boring people say they are. I think they are wonderful…I learn soooo much! It really helps you to evaluate and solidify your system of beliefs. Not to mention that the classes provoke thought and insight.
I’m also sad that I’m not taking any English, literature or interpersonal communication courses next quarter. Those are always super fun. Plus I just really like reading…and it always helps when your homework is to read books that you’ve always wanted to.
So what am I taking you ask?
All journalism courses, and one astronomy course. Plus I’ll probably be writing for the Falcon again. I’m not sure if I’ll be writing a column in features or if I’ll be sticking to news. hmmm, decisions decisions. I’m not sure I’m ready to write my column…I don’t think my skin is thick enough yet.
Also, I’ve decided to take a break from engaging in any sort of social activity for a while. I need some time to myself I think. And I mean ‘real’ time to myself…none of this ‘close-the-door-but-not-all-the-way-because-I-want-the-distractions’ business. Plus, to be perfectly honest, I’m kinda getting sick of boys. I mean, don’t get me wrong, boys are wonderful. But honestly, the tension and potential drama is just too much right now. It wears me out. It gets harder and harder to preserve everybody’s ‘feelings’. I hate hurting feelings and in cases like these, there’s just no avoiding it. Plus, there’s the gossip and over-reacting…blah…the repeated explanations really take it out of me and I can’t focus on what I’m here for – namely, my education, faith and future.
