Collegiate Difficulties


Sorry it's been so long since my last post, but I've been really busy.

I'll give a short recap of why I've been so busy!

Spring Break: I had to write a research paper to make up for not writing any during English 3. (I am a horrible procrastinator. I'm working on that, though.)
April-May: I had to finish up high school with good grades!
Late May: I graduated!
June-Tomorrow (July 28): I'm taking my first college class! Trig is... both easier and harder than I expected.

So, now that you know what I've been doing for the past... five months? Has it been five months? Wow...
Anyway, now that you know what I've been doing, I can tell you what I'm doing now.

I'm half-stalling, half-regaining my courage to call the school to schedule an appointment for "Direct Loan Counselling". Phone call anxiety kinda sucks as an adult.
Yep, student loans! The bane of many a graduate's existence!
Luckily, I'm only gonna get one. I'm planning on getting scholarships and grants and such to get me through the rest of college.
This loan's gonna get me a car! Well, hopefully it will...

In case I haven't told you, I'm gonna be a particle physicist! Once I get through about ten years of college, that is.

Oh, and, on the subject of cars, I'm gonna have to actually get my driver's license! Because I'm an anxious procrastinator who didn't get enough in-school driving hours to get one at sixteen. But that's because of the rule that "you have to be passing gym in order to go drive during class!", which meant I only got to drive, like, twice. Oh, and my anxiety at driving a car, which was likely fueled by Mom's anxiety at me driving a car (not blaming you, Mom, just citing a source) made it so that I didn't get the at-home driving hours either.
Gym class sucks. I only barely passed. Honestly, I was ready to give up every shred of my dignity and beg the teacher for some form of extra credit, I was that desperate.

Enough about high school. The past is in the past.
I'm procrastinating making the call (don't yell at me, Mom! I'm gonna call soon, I just need to regain my courage!) because of phone call anxiety. I'm working on getting over it, though! Before, I couldn't answer phone calls from unknown numbers or make phone calls to anyone except a select few.
Anxiety sucks. If you don't have it, be glad you don't. If you do have it, well, keep on keeping on; I know you can get through it. I have, thus far.

On a lighter subject, Mom's having a bit of a party on Sunday! She's celebrating the premier of Sharknado 4.
Yep, Sharknado. It's exactly what it sounds like - well, unless you hear it as Shark-NATO, in which case it's not, LOL.
Sharks in a tornado. And they've made four movies based around that premise. Oh! I forgot! After Sharknado 4 is the premier of 2 Lava 2 Lantula, the sequel to Lavalantula! Again, pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
The tagline for Sharknado 4? The Fourth Awakens. I'm not kidding, just Google it. (Well, it's actually The 4th Awakens, but I think that "Fourth" looks better than "4th".)
Thus far, the titles in the Sharknado franchise are: Sharknado: Enough Said, Sharknado 2: The Second One, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! - which was my reaction upon seeing that they had made a Sharknado 3 - and, of course, Sharknado 4: The Fourth Awakens.

So, now that I've told you all about Sharknado, and my college difficulties, I guess I don't have much else to say.
