I admit having your own dog is a bit more responsibility than I realized; however, when I was born my parents already had a dog, and then a few years after she was put to sleep we got another one, so I grew up with dog care being second nature, so I guess I don't mind being clawed to death when giving my dog a bath, nor does dog s**t really bother me (not to mention I've been changing diapers since I was 7). I thought about getting a cat, but my roommate already has one, and I've never had one before, so it's still kind of new to me. But I love my puppy (her name is Selene, after the Greek goddess of the moon), no matter how many times I have to chase her down to keep her behaving.
Recently I re-read the book Grendel (a 1970s book written about the Beowulf story, taken from Grendel's point of view), re-read All Quiet on the Western Front, and bits of Crime and Punishment and Tess of the Durbervilles. I've also been reading some contemporary fiction in-between.
I'm going to be honest, I've never read 1984, although I do own it. I guess I've just been putting it off because of how many times I've had to read Animal Farm for school, and how sick I'd finally gotten of it. I do know the gist of the book, though.
Yeah, I don't ever plan on moving to Israel, I'm pretty sure my chances of getting shot/blown-up would increase dramatically.
And yes, I adore Jon Stewart. I guess you could say I'm slightly in love with him.
I don't mind taking time off school to save up money so I can go back part or even full time. I plan on getting back in school next fall. And I appreciate the advice, but I don't think I stand to do one class at a time.
Mostly for fun I hang out with friends and my roommate, play with my dog, play Final Fantasy, and of course, get on Gaia. I also read a lot (trying to keep up with the literature I would be reading in school).
Well what a lot of people do is just get some class like Speech or something easy like that. Get the financial aid, you get back in return like a grand. You got all that money for yourself and you can use it to get by.
Get the class for a monday for just 2 hours and you get to keep the money.
Would help your situation.
I myself am not religious at all, sure I believe in God but I ahven't step foot in a Church in years.
So what you do for fun over there? Seems like you having a very tough time.
Yeah, the tips are nice, but if you have a slow day, and are only making $2 an hour, sometimes you lose more than you gain (because of taxes and such).
I was going to Centenary College of Louisiana for a while, but over Spring Break my parents found out that I wasn't a Christian like I'd been telling them (my dad was raised Christian and my mom converted shortly before marrying my dad), and they pulled the financial rug out from under me. And, since I had gotten used to eating everyday, I dropped out and starting working.
