Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Procrastinating by making a school thread, I think this is ironic or something?

    My present situation:

    Started working on a 3 year history BA in 2007 and due to some learning disabilities/anxiety stuff/missing a lot of classes I didn't take 5 courses a term every year. Recently found out that I'm well on my way to being done, but it'll be two more years. I don't know if I can take this! I know I'll only be 24 but still man, dang.

    Also I finally got a language course (D+ in German), and I don't care if it's low, I got ittt.

    do not ask for whom the snerd tolls

    Pillow, if you end up homeless yell at one of the forumers to take you in

    Tomorrow I start my summer long internship at a nearby art museum. While I'm going to enjoy being consistently productive for once during the summer, this was earlier than expected and hoped to have at least one more week to just have fuck-all going on before diving into various summer projects.

    so apparently the reason I haven't heard back from the university of toronto yet is because three weeks ago some jerk sent my college transcripts to the wrong admissions office


    and if I don't resolve this within three days I won't have a choice and will have to accept an offer from trent university (which is a really cool university and they're offering me a lot of scholarship dollars, but it's also pretty far away and I'd be starting up a whole new life on my own and dang that's a hefty thing to consider)

    wooooo

    If you're getting good scholarship money to go there, and it has a great department for what you want to do then go for it.

    My last day of classes was today

    Which means it's super cool that I still have to wake up and go to school for the rest of the week, and it's also great that I haven't started an eight-page paper that due on Friday about existentialism

    Exams were in April

    Next week is "activities week" and we're going backpacking, so tomorrow and Thursday are trip prep and college advising, and Friday is a half day.

    The paper is due Friday for some fucking reason. rrrraffffrrghh.

    3 things happened to me on my way home from school.

    1) Preppy white kids spotted leaving the Goodwills. They wore nice clothing and owned nice phones, I guess they were being vintage chic or something. Notable because I recognize all the white people at my school, and you don't see white kids taking that route ever. They all seem nice enough, but like the hip black people you see roaming about, you wonder where they come from.

    2) Stopped at a bookstore to buy something. The front was being taken care of by the owner's friend till the owner could come back from his back office. Me and the man talked, he wanted to know if the high schools still had a rivalry on, is the busing really that common, plans for higher-ed, general school-type small talk. The owner comes back, and I realize I'd left my wallet at home. The owner's friend asks how much it costs and is told it is 12 dollars.

    . . . He offers to buy it for me. I am obviously, very surprised to hear this, and tell him I can not accept the offer. Thankfully, he doesn't insist. It was very odd. I mean, what for? It is possible he meant it sincerely, I had said one of my only talents was art and the book in question was an art book so I don't know, maybe he had some sort of messiah complex and thus offered to pay for it. Or who knows. I left the store.

    3) I found a severed cat head on my street. There wasn't any blood on the grass, and it's body was nowhere to be seen. How awful.

    You have angered the Samaritan gods, they will bring forth vengeance upon you

    That's fucked up
    also, you missed out on your chance for a lifetime movie: get the artbook, become famous because someone sees the artbook, become all bigshot art dude, go back to your roots and meet the family of the dude. I think that's how they go, some sappy stuff like that right?

    Oh, I know it isn't. But I didn't feel right, and how was I going to explain the free gift to my parents. They know I like art books and know that they are usually expensive, and that I don't have any cash money; if a bookstore didn't show up under the credit card bill they might have asked.

    My philosophy professor this quarter is letting me do my final on Kierkegaard's idea of there possibly being a standard to be held for the 'religious man,' and I will demonstrate this through a comparison of his ideas concerning the 'religious man' to how the characters on LOST are manipulated to a degree from the island's divine elements.
