Turning Points
Listening to: Never Too Late, by Three Days Grace

Hmm, a lot has happened since I've last written. At first, it seems pretty bad. And it is. However, I believe that it's going to work out just fine, maybe even turning out better than before. Maybe.

Well, I was academically disqualified from Humboldt State because of grades. Over the past two semesters, I attempted 33 units, but only got 7, all from C/NC classes, so I had a 0.0 GPA, bringing my total units to 19 because of AP classes. And I didn't tell anyone about it. I almost even lied about it, nearly submitting false grades to an insurance company and my own church. However, I was found out by my mother, and that's what saved me. I could have been convicted of a felony for submitting falsified information. Woo, thanks Mom. Anyway, almost everyone I know had been surprisingly supportive of me, even though I let you all down. My old junior year history teacher has even helped me get a schedule going for Fullerton JC, all the way through this spring. And after that, I'm giving the UC's another shot, so it could work out great. If not, Humboldt is always still available. But we'll see how it works out.

Because of my school fiasco, I won't be playing baseball much anymore, if at all. However, I may have found another passion. Theatre. My brother was recently in a show put on by the Buena Park Youth Theatre, Cinderella. In fact, tonight was the last show. Although I was only working in the back as part of the tech and set crew, I had a blast. I met a lot of friends, and possibly some connections. I've always had at least a minor interest in the theatre, but sports, particularly hockey and baseball, always took up too much time, and I liked them too much to quit. And I also never took any drama, choir, or dance classes, so I have literally no experience. However, I have been told by the heads of all three of those appartments that I have talent (except for dance, but she was talking about the other two anyway. I can't dance worth beans, and DDR doesn't count). This is also true for some of the higher ups at BPYT. And many of them, and the cast members, have urged me to get involved on the stage, both on it and behind it. And I agree. My parents have even talked behind my back and to me in person about changing my major to be completely based around the arts (theatre and art), possibly keeping marine biology/fisheries as a minor. And this is all with an untrained voice and no drama experience. And performing with my brother in the Nutcracker as a little kid doesn't count. All I did was run around. And that was only at a ballet company. So I'm still green.

Well, this summer is going to be, and already is, very interesting. I have a full time job working for a friend of my stepdads, but it's not the greatest. Hard labor six days a week from 8 to 5 kinda sucks. But it pays pretty well, and it's at least semi-bearable. And I've got less than a month left, since my full summer classes start at the beginning of July. One class starts tomorrow. It's gonna be like going to high school and night school at the same time come July 7th. But that's okay. It'll keep me out of trouble, since I'll have little free time to screw around. Well, at least I finally get to go down to Del Mar this year. First time for a long while. It's gonna be a blast.

So, even with all the things that have happened recently, I find myself surprisingly content. And that's always a good thing. So, until next time!
