    I had a dream where I was in Wal-Mart pushing carts in an unending freezing night.

    Then I wake up and remember I quit that fucking job.

    Man do I miss money though, and college is eating all of it.

    I had a dream that was a 4 hour shift at my supermarket job on checkouts

    it felt like a 4 hour shift

    I was pissed I wouldn't get paid after I woke up

    for a community college you just sign up fo the class and pay money

    Apparently I've grown too comfortable with arcane systems bound to technologically enforced limitations.

    Thanks guys.

    gotta have me a few beers before bed

    gotta drink away the events of the day

    no i'm talking about like hey i'm gonna get drunk and pass out with the lights on and wake up at five am to piss for two minutes and then go to sleep and wake up in a couple of hours with a dry mouth and a headache

    So you have been DRINKING.

    not correctly

    you should never have a hangover

    you have not been drinking hard enough

    sometimes i do it big enough where i wake up drunk

    get that middle of the day hangover, and then it's by the hair of the dog

    Blargh. I need to write about two more pages for this paper and then I will be finished with the last paper for the semester.

    I feel like a zombie...I'm hoping this goes away after a long sleep tonight so I can handle the presentations and final I still have after this.

    i have

    and you know what? sometimes i'll go months without drinking, or failing that, getting drunk. like, i'll have a beer or three over the course of the evening and call it a night well spent.

    other times, i'd rather party.

    and the whole me not being an alcoholic is going to be a very uphill battle, but i think i can manage.

    I talked to a counselor about applying to the nursing program and if I should continue with medical assisting.

    She recommended that I get a certificate in phlebotomy and get all of my GE credit done, and then I can apply to whatever nursing program in CA that I want. Which is cool, cause I'm probably going to apply to several.

    Might even apply to some four-year schools, if I take just a few more classes I'd be able to.

    My only addition to this would be to get as much CS/programming experience as you can. All of the applied math jobs out there are going need some level of programming, whether it's writing exotic derivative pricing models in C++ or running quality control statistics through SAS.

    holy shit someone else who knows what SAS is

    for a while I thought I might have imagined the whole thing

    got rejected by the phd programs I applied to, now I will be out of school for the first time ever!

    I guess my resume isn't strong enough yet

    I am going to submit parts of my thesis to various things, try to get published, work on all my shit, apply to teach english somewhere in eastern europe and see if I can get some research with professors I know from my soon to be alma mater

    then I will apply next year to a much broader range of programs!

    I definitely won't cry, though, that's what all the liquor is for
