Phew, sorry for the lack of updates! My host Bubble.nu has finally gotten its VPS! So that was a good week or two without any updates, so for that I am truly sorry for! But I’m very happy for my host. Kya has wanted this for such a long time. I think that it will provide more for her hostees which is great news for me. I think it was worth the wait, and Kya has kept me updated throughout the whole time. Nothing, I think, was lost in the moving process to the new server so it’s all good!
May 1st has finally decided to come and roll around which ultimately means that I have decided where to spend the next four years of my life. I’m not going to end up at my dream school much to my dismay. It really pains me how much money it takes to get an education in this country. Who really has $50,000 in their pocket to spend a year on tuition? … The economy is in recession, but of course instead of lowering prices tuition is rising.It doesn’t make sense at all, in my opinion. I did end up getting a full scholarship at another school, and that’s where I’m ultimately going. I’m going to try to make the best of it. I can’t walk in thinking negatively. It is still in the city after all.
And I (think) I’ve finally convinced my mom that I will no longer do psychology. I tried telling her that really an English major is the way to go, but she still tried pushing the psych major. As much as I do have an interest – that’s somewhat dwindling – in psychology, I really can’t see myself making a career out of it. I told my mom that if I did end up studying it, I would end up concentrating on the sex field…. I shouldn’t be shocked, but my mom did support it. But honestly, editor trumps sex therapist any day. Sorry. It was something I’ve always wanted to do, I think, but I never really saw it happening. Until now.
While still on the subject of being an editor, I finally came around to plucking the courage to ask my mentor to extend the internship. She was quite ecstatic. Thank god. Unfortunately, I’ll be out of internship for about a month, but hopefully I’ll be coming in more than once a week starting in July! Hooray! I am glad that I am not breaking ties with Scholastic yet. It is something that I truly enjoy doing.
In other news, we’re moving a few towns over. My family has been wanting to move for a very long time and we finally found a nice place. The town is a lot more central. It’s closer to my school (which will end up as my brother’s school as well), the mall, Loreal’s house, and most places we frequent in general. The new house is quite lovely…. but we’re moving in as soon as possible. Which means I’m currently in the middle of packing! My room is in a state of disarray. Boxes, things, clothes piled up everywhere. It’s taking me a really long time to pack but mostly because I’m going through my things and getting rid of things I no longer need. Hopefully, I finish up tomorrow, but at the rate I’m going I don’t think that’s going to happen.
Back to packing!!! Or … I should be attempting to.
