Someone asked me my major, and I responded...
The concept of learning to do one specific thing for the rest of my life scares me. I don’t want to learn to do only one thing, I want to learn to do multiple things. I want to learn how to boil spaghetti without having it stick to the bottom of the pan. I want to learn how to sew a long sleeved dress. I want to learn how to rock-climb. I want to learn how I can persuade others to recycle more often. I want to learn how to edit film. I want to learn how to sing and dance and act. I want to learn how to speak French. I want to learn how to walk in 7 inch heels. I want to learn how to write a good story. I want to learn how to draw a portrait of someone I love. I want to learn how to bake a chocolate croissant. I want to learn how to kick-box. I want to learn how to eat cereal and milk without spilling it on myself. I want to learn how to knit a scarf. I want to learn how to be healthy. I want to learn how to unearth an ancient artifact. I want to learn how I can do everything I want; But the trouble is, there’s no major for that.
My mother told me my naturalization interview was tomorrow at 7 in the morning, so I got all prepared and studied for the test today… turns out it’s not till Thursday, the 5th. =__-
LOL. My mother always gets my important dates wrong. Why? WHYYY?! I picked an outfit and everything, too. WOMPS. I really wanted to get this thing over with so I could move on to e-mailing people for a job. Sigh.
Maybe I should start giving out e-mails already. And I have to buy my books soon. ;__;
In other news, phone interviews make me nervous. I hate talking to people on the phone.
Oh, and I have stuff to do for SPACE soon. Sheesh. I’m not even in school yet and I already have so many things to think about. O__O.
Thanks a lot, 2012.
25 Things to do before turning 25
I will be turning 25 in less than 3 months (can you believe it, it’s like a quarter of a century old) and yes I’m pretty excited about it :P. I’ve decided to jot down real-life & achievable to-do list in order for me to have something to look forward to. I believe that now is the time to take advantage of my youth, energy, and to live with gusto ;)
Based on this one blogger, there are three general categories that you need to cover before you turn 25:
I. You should be able to take care of yourself & those around you.
II. You should have some fun.
