I had weird dreams. I dreamed that Val and I got arrested and thrown in jail. only we got arrested in Canada and got put in jail somewhere in the states somewhere. I don't even remember what we were arrested for. probably public drunkenness.

I'm trying to decide if I want to go out wandering or go get some stuff done in the print shop. or the metal shop. The metal shop sounds more appealing, if only because I have total artists block when it comes to my printmaking class at the moment...

I think chinatown needs a visit. I haven't been wandering there in months.

zomg rose of pain just started playing. Remind me of grade 10 much? I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.

it's both I guess.

I am le tired. I think I spent about 3 or 4 hours in the metal shop today. the muscles on my right arm are going to be huge by the end of the semester.

and now. shower.

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 worked late again tonight and then forgot to ask my boss if he wanted me to come in tomorrow because I SUCK. On the upside, people seem to like me there. It is also possible to avoid talking to Jessie about 99% of the time. Hell, I can avoid talking to anyone at least 80% of the time. Which I like. Because I don't like talking to people I, or people I know, don't already know and like :P

On the downside, I couldn't make it out to TO for crepes. I am also probably missing out on a lot of star trek.

I really hope I get tomorrow off... if only so I can actually apply to the art galleries around here.

Well, today wasn't too bad. They want me back tomorrow, so I assume I'm hired for realz. I spent most of the day putting the hanging part of hanging baskets on pots. er. baskets. whatever. But yeah. I was supposed to leave at 4... they asked me to stay late. so I ended up getting out around 5:30. I work tomorrow from 11-5 so I may be able to make it for crepes depending on how early I have to work on thursday....

I should sleep. I have to work tomorrow.

I'm nervous. I hate starting new jobs.

The good news:

I got a job
It starts tomorrow

The bad news:

It's in Hamilton

The indifferent and slightly amusing news:
It's at a garden center
I'm working with Jessie Parenteau. One of Heather's (many) ex boyfriends. Also, a bit of a dick. But I haven't seen him since like... 11th grade. so maybe he's not a dick anymore...? who knows!

I'm giving serious consideration to getting my C license and applying to be a subway driver.... at some point anyway.

I think I might end up just selling art and stuff to support myself this summer. Urrrrrgh.

I already have a farmers tan. I have tanlines from my ring and my watch too. I don't know... just find it funny. I spend one day outside and already I've got my perpetual farmers tan back. I didn't have much of one last year, as I spent most of it in a warehouse wearing long sleeves...

I don't know where exactly this entry is going...

We planted almost 100 trees today. Yay for trees.

I'm so glad I have my NOT STUPID ROGERS interwebs at home so can have my limewire and torrents working again....

Spent most of the day helping my dad pull dead trees out of the orchard. Lucky for me he's paying 8 bucks an hour for that kind of thing.

I suppose I could start teaching music lessons again. But I don't particularly want to. I made a list today of over 60 places to apply to starting monday/tuesday. I hope for either the cayuga art gallery or the hamilton art gallery, or bicks pickles. So Jessi, if you're working there again, we could be coworkers :P

it's weird sitting here knowing I don't have much to do. I mean. I have to find a job, but that doesn't take up a whole lot of time. I have a few weeks where I can basically do nothing.... I haven't had that... in... years. easily 5 or 6 at least. I forsee much ATV riding, biking, walking, and reading.
