    i guess i do need to eventually entertain where i plan to live when i become a professional

    you have time to work that out

    probably focus more on where you want to go to school first

    true

    money's also an issue

    i might have to go local community for a few years

    that's the smart move if you can't find a scholarship of some sort. there's no great reason pay extra just to take prereqs from an expensive university, really.

    unless you figure you're gonna get fucked when you try to transfer credits

    (you will almost certainly get fucked when you try to transfer credits)

    Yeah definitely do your research ahead of time and make it clear with your advisors what you want to do

    I did that with my CC, graduated with a two year, lost only two classes, one of which I tested out of, and I didn't pay a dime in tuition the entire time

    It helps if you can find a community college that has some sort of relationship or understanding with a local four year. Those credits almost always transfer easier

    Also if you're planning on pursuing some sort of graduate degree, don't sweat where you get your bachelors. Do whatever's most convenient for the BA, and then think long and hard on graduate school. That is the advice I've been given and it seems really solid.

    Dead Space was so goddamn scary. No other game has ever scared me like Dead Space has.

    I love it.

    You can be kind of a pussy though, I mean

    with all credit due to Pony, you were genuinely freaked out playing an imagination game with scary things spoken to you in a living room.

    I was too! I was very on edge!

    I actually enjoyed every raid I attended, but then it was a maximum of like two or three times I had done any one raid in WoW.

    I kind of want to level up a new guy in Cataclysm and then just set it down, but the urge is so low I might as well just forget it.

    I like how I'm showing signs of personal growth and dropping my WoW addiction and you're all

    no it's cool

    we'll level worgens

    just the first month

    c'mon try it

    YOU ARE KILLING ME

    YOU'RE KILLING MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe

    I think I will probably end up in Boston when I eventually get out of the army

    My sister lives here and I've got an in at UMB (I'm friends with a professor on the board of admissions, and even if they're no longer on that board when I'm ready for university I'll need all the help I can get getting into a good university with no high school diploma)

    I've got a lot of old friends in Los Angeles but half of them are in jail and most of the rest of them frankly are not people I should be associating with. And as much as I would love to go to the U of C in LA I don't think University of California would want me.

    Plus my mother lives in Los Angeles. If I move back there I'm not sure how long I'd be able to keep her from finding out.

    boston is a pretty good town. after six years here some of its worse aspects are starting to grate on me a little, but on the whole i still like living here a lot. it's probably my favorite place i've ever lived.

    Yeah I can dig it. I still miss Santa Monica, though. I mean this place is nice but I had, like, a passionate love affair with that city.

    Haha, I think it's fine to blush or something like that when you think back on your excesses, but. Generally speaking I am a big fan of liking yourself first and foremost, and even the silly and sometimes really stupid stuff you did as a kid shaped you and made you into who you are.

    Regretting that sort of seems like regretting yourself. Looking back on your past with understanding and acceptance is important, I think, especially in teaching you how to understand other people and their faults. Turning up your nose and going 'ugh I was such an idiot' is selling yourself short.
