Archive for the ‘University’ Category

3rd year that is. Now I can tell right away that this year is going to be a lot different then what previous years held. Why? Because I’m at that age where arguing and caring are trivial when it comes to a university setting. I’d rather deal with school work at school then disappear from campus and do the stuff that we must do at home. For example I have a couple of new year resolutions (school resolutions that is) Each one is gong off on a totally different category but if I remember correctly some of these overlap from last years resolutions.

1. Pass every class this year.

Over the past couple of years I’ve failed four courses. I guess this is attributed to a few things but mostly because I didn’t put in the work necessary. I’m not going to make excuses this year I need to pass every class this year. And not only do I need to pass them I need to pass them big time.

2. Get my GPA over 3.0.

Now I know that this one is an extreme long shot as for this to happen I would have to average 90+ in every course through the Year and I know I’m sure as Hell not going to get that. So if I set the bar at say 2.5 and then get higher it means I succeed. Let’s see how this one works out.

3. Get a Girlfriend.

I posted this one as one of the goals for last year. I have to admit I was close for a while but it kind of fell apart quite quickly. We are on OK terms now but I doubt that we will ever go back to what we were before. Frankly I’m over her and I’m ready and on the hunt for someone new. I said last year that I was going to be less picky but then again I was just that. Part of me is like I don’t give a fuck, the other part is I really want a girlfriend. We will see where this one goes.

4. Get a Job.

This is not so much school related as it is Kamloops related. I’ve got to get a job this year otherwise I won’t survive money wise. I just can’t. I’ve got a good possibility of a few but it will only be until the spring when I can move onto the one at General Paint that I really want. I’m just curious as to how much that will pay me.

That’s all I can think of for now, if anymore pop up I will keep updating this post throughout the year.

Some people struggle with a social life, some with work. Others struggle with the course load and commitment needed to help you succeed in school. But, that commitment in one department means that you must make sacrifices in other areas of your world. For me it’s a complicated situation. School isn’t my strongest point. I know and admit that. Well I won’t say school in general I’ll say that tests aren’t my strongest point. It sucks because unlike some people I enjoy university learning.

When it comes to exams in university, I suck. I freak out I usually don’t know what to do or my brain blanks. My other biggest flaw is getting started on final projects. I hate it so much. I want to do I really do. I just stress so much that it causes me to do badly.

Anyway onto the point of this. I’ve had to make many sacrifices this semester, including skipping events with my roommates. I know that maybe I should stop being so busy with theatre stuff and focus more on my friends. But in all honesty I consider my theatre friends closer to me then my roommates at this point.

I guess I spend so much time with theatre stuff because I have to Stage Manage Directors Festival. What is Directors Festival? Well Directors Festival or D-Fest as most of us in the theatre department call it. This has taken up a lot of my time. I’ve had to put together this binder with all the scripts to every play in the show for Night B.

This is definitely the toughest test I’ve had to endure this year because it’s taken so much time and is still going to take so much more. But All I can say here is bring it on…!
