In a week today I will be on a couple of planes heading back to Kamloops. The first is the Air North plane that takes me to Vancouver where I will see my aunt for lunch (I think) before heading back to Kamloops on the Air Canada plane.

I tell you, it’s definitely been nice being home. Been a relaxing winter break. Got a lot of writing done, watched some movies and also done physio on my shoulder which is almost better. Still got one more physio session left next Tuesday but after that I’m pretty much done.

I’ve also over the past few days finally nailed out my schedule for the semester. It’s an interesting one but I’m looking forward to it as well. Let’s see, I’ve got two English courses, my final theatre acting class and Archaeology, which will be interesting. A quick note about the English courses. One of them will be my first attempt at the course the other will be my third attempt and I’d better freaking pass this time. I haven’t got much room to mess this up unless I want to be here for another 3 years. So I’m going to try my very best.

As for the Archaeology course, I think it will be interesting as it counts as one of the final two sciences I need to graduate. Unfortunately I can’t take the third because the courses I want to take for it aren’t actually offered this semester and all the Geography courses are already full. What I might consider doing is going and seeing if I can bump one of the other first year courses to take Geology. According to a friend its super easy, so I am really going to contemplate this.

And finally theatre, this is the final acting course that I am required to take. Now I can take 4th year next year as an elective to help with credits but I’m not sure at the moment. Next year I do have to take two more theatre courses. One was a course I took and failed already the other one is the 4th year directing course which is what I’m really looking forward to. But first I have to complete the 2nd half of third year. Part of it is something I’ve already done and that’s the directors festival or Dfest. It’s where the 4th year class picks a series of one act plays for the 3rd years to put on. I however did this last year because they were short on guys and needed people to audition. So this isn’t the first time I will have gone through this. It’s going to be interesting and I’m excited for the challenge this year. And like mentioned above, next year I get to direct one of the plays.

So that pretty much wraps up my coming up semester. I have goals set for each course and I’m going to do my utter best to pass them all. If I don’t then I’m going to really evaluate my options. But I’ll worry about that when I get there. For now I’m going to enjoy the semester.

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.

Why the sad face?

Well to tell you the truth, its really simple. I’ve been so bogged down with homework that I haven’t had the actual time to update this bloody thing. The reason being, you just have to read the title to guess why. I have like 3 essays due on Wednesday. And there has only been 2 weeks of class! Unbelievable, right? I thought so.

So since I only have one class tomorrow I will be spending a good part of the day doing homework. I don’t care much about homework but it’s a necessity at this time of my life. Joy to the world. Not…..

The essay for Communications (CMNS1290) is actually quite simple honestly. And it’s not even going to be graded! This essay is a 5 paragraph essay which will essentially just assess our skills as writers. That one will be easy. As for the other two…..I don’t know if I can describe them as they are much more complicated.

Even if I can explain them I doubt I would as it is 1:00am here.

Talk to you later everyone!

Alright! Finally! At Last! As some of you can tell I may be a tad excited. Well the reason is it’s finally time for me to head back to university! Now most of you might find that a tad weird but to someone who grew up in quite a sheltered family that means one word “FREEDOM” Yes! Anyway the way this works is I will be majoring in Theatre instead of Journalism. Anyway it’s late more updates soon guys. I am sorry for the delay. I’ve been super busy with work.
