I don't feel like going to class. I just feel like wandering around. But I will go to class because I told myself I wouldn't miss any classes this year unless I was deathly ill or something equally or worse in circumstance. blah.

I walked a lot yesterday. it was good. I should do it more.

I'm thinking of switching to metal working. Why?

- there's a demand for skilled workers. Skills I'll get from metal shop. such as welding.
- the pay is good for those kind of jobs
- I have experience in factory/constructionesque settings
- I spend too much time on the computer as it is and metal working is good exercise.
- I've taken all the prerequisites for both integrated media and the shop courses so I won't have to go back and pick up classes
- I'll still come out with a BA, which means I can still run off to japan or wherever and teach english if I want to someday.
- As much as I love computers and the fun things I can do with them... I find it more.... engaging to actually make things with my hands rather than feed commands into a machine and it then proceeds to do everything for me.
- my parents will get over it eventually. hell, my dad would probably even be happy.
- It's totally hardcore, man.

why not:

- ugh. paperwork. switching majors will involve stupid amounts of paperwork.

though I may be able to do like... a double major kind of thing, if I take all the intm classes and fabr classes I need and not have any electives...

or maybe I'll drop out and go to college and actually start earning some money.

something something...

just throwing possibilities around now.

I don't think I've ever actually asked people to comment on my lj but I'd really like to know what you all think. any advice is appreciated...

I am a winnar. I totally rocked my metal working class today. sure all we did was make metal boxes, but my metal box was HAWT. It also helps that there are a few complete morons in my class that make everyone else look smart in comparison.

now I have the rest of the day to kill... I'll probably head back to the metal shop and get started on that suit of armor. finish cleaning. see what else I feel like doing.

today will be a good day. I can feel it.

And now, home time.

Final presentations today went well. Except for one girl. who I swear to god was high on something. Her project was that she made a shoe. And the meaning behind it was that she had been shopping a lot lately and liked shoes. Only when she was trying to explain this, she kept yawning. and having pauses in weird places. And generally came off as mentally retarded. She also rolled her eyes at anyone who tried to make a constructive comment on it. Two days ago I would have been ready to smack her around. But Chungking express has me on a perpetual high.

Maybe I should stop mentioning chungking express in every entry I make... :P
