1) I cannot, under any circumstances, stay at the school I'm attending: I'm not challenged, I'm not motivated, and I'm not comfortable with the school's treatment of its students. After this quarter, I will not be going back.
2) I may not want to be a paralegal: I have a meeting with Hamline University, a school in St. Paul, next Tuesday to discuss both their paralegal and their law program. Over the last two weeks, I realized that Globe was not the right school for me and began wondering if perhaps I should consider law school instead, thinking that I might like international law, working in an embassy or for a humanitarian organization. But then the third realization came.
|*gross sobbing* I miss you, UMN.|
But I didn't before. Things have taken on a different scope, now that I've been out of school and realized all the possibilities I have. I could do anything, I know this, but I want to do something that inspires me. I felt the most inspired going to my Cultural Studies and English classes, as well as working at the Guthrie and if I continue on a path like that, I'd feel pretty good about my choices. I have a lot regrets and I don't want to miss out on doing something I really love. Considering I can't walk across the river without looking at the Guthrie and missing it, I known now that something needs to change. And soon.
Writing all of this seems highly tangential, irrelevant, and personal, but things might be kind of weird around here, so this is partially a heads-up. I mean, things are always weird here but they're bound to get weirder. Hang in there, I promise I'll get back to fandom things. Until then, enjoy the song that I'm going to be singing to myself every day until winter break comes:
