OYE! So I've been attending my classes at Gateway for what seems like forever. It's only been two weeks. I'm taking College Math 1A and 1B, AC/DC, Sociology, Intro to Macrocomputers. They all suck, except for Sociology--that one might be cool. I've spent a crap-load of money on classes and books, and I still need to buy two more books. All my classes are on Tuesday and Thursday, with breaks from 10-11 and 1-230 and I'm done at 4. I also have a stupid class that I need to go to at noon on Wednesday (AC/DC).
Besides that, I work and lay around. I did recently start playing tennis. I've been playing with Adam, we usually play for like an hour up at Tremper's courts. We suck pretty badly, but we're getting better...slowly.
Also! I get to go visit Jon from the 19th-23rd of this month. I'm just a little excited. I haven't decided what vehicle we're going to take there. I want to take the truck, but I need to fix it or get it fixed first. If that doesn't work, it's going to be the saturn or van. yep, thats all folks

maybe a mistake?

So I've started my Gateway classes. This is going to be a long and boring semester. I got some serious bird course... you know, the ones you fly through. I've been thinking that maybe Gateway was a mistake. I really don't think Parkside would have worked either. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how things unfold.

School starts tomorrow. Those words give me nightmares. They even make me sick. Okay, they don't give me nightmares, but they do make me sick. STORYTIME! After hanging out with Adam for a couple hours, I decide it's time to end the party. It's about 12:30 at night. I take him home, and return back to my house, and finally lay down at about 1:00, maybe 1:15. The first thing that comes to mind is... I start school on Tuesday. Immediately my stomach feels uneasy. As I think about Gateway more, my stomach ache escalates higher and higher, getting worse and worse. At about 2:15 it's bad enough to make me go sit by the toilet, because I knew it was inevitable: I was going to throw up my pizza, popcorn, pop, banana, bread, and whatever else I'd eaten. As I sit by the toilet, awaiting my glorious display of puke, I start falling asleep, right next to the toilet. Almost took a nap on my toilet. After a few agonizing minutes of trying to keep my puke it, my stomach calms down enough for me to return to my bed. Just about as soon as my head hit my pillow, I think I fell asleep. This morning, I still don't feel that great, as I prepare to begin my classes tomorrow.
What's the moral of this story? School sucks and will make you throw up if you think about it.

EH! I'm not ready for college. I want to stay a kid FOREVER. Well, here comes college whether I'm ready or not. Gateway is the college that I've ended up at. As of now I'm going for a degree in "Air conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration." If that doesn't work out, I'm going to change to Electronic Engineering Technician. For that I'd have to go to the Racine campus for a year and a half, and then MSOE for two more. There's always the option, next year, for me to go to Nicolet to pursue a career in ministry. We'll see where I'm taken to.

Two left...

This is my "part 2" to my blog I posted long ago about having too much to worry about, and not enough time to slow down. If you don't remember what I said, the blog was called "Two gone by...". Well, now I have 2 weeks left. And I've failed at slowing things down. Even though my list of time-eaters has been narrowed, I still feel like I'm busy as a bee, flying around doing as much as possible. I let myself down this summer. I did not put enough effort into slowing my life down. Now I'm starting Gateway in two weeks and that will take up a nice chunk of time for me. I'm just frustrated and disappointed that I could not slow down and enjoy my summer. Got any advice?
