Oh, joy!

March 17, 2010

Wow! Two months later and there’s still pretty much nothing that’s really happened except for the fact that I’M GOING TO SEE WICKED AT THE END OF THIS MONTH!

Finally, after planning and breaking off the event, it’s FINALLY happening. On March 30, I will be seeing Wicked, live in the Orpheum Theatre at San Francisco. That won’t be the only thing I’m doing during Spring Break though. I’ll also be fishing at Los Banos (actually I won’t because I don’t have a license) and crabbing in San Francisco (no license, again). It’s going to be an EXCITING week.

In other news, I’m ahead in all my classes right now so that’s news enough to celebrate. My most challenging class is also my favorite, Interpersonal Communication. I’m learning so much about how I’m communicating and others as well. The only thing that’s hard is not knowing the solutions. The book only makes me aware of the problems, but doesn’t really offer advice on the solution. Guess that’s where “communication competence” comes in. My other classes are pretty easy – Photoshop, InDesign and Elementary Voice class.

Speaking of voice class, last week was my first-ish voice test and I blew it! I had everything memorized but I just don’t know what happened to me that day. I guess I was just thinking too damn much. So I froze right when I was about to sing. I just went blank until the pianist reminded me of the first few words. Then I snapped back but I still forgot some of the lyrics so I stumbled through what I remembered. So wierd because the week before I had just done it in the front of the class with confidence (and of course, my music sheet in front of me). I loathe myself for that. I wish I could do it over again.

On top of that all that wreckage, I just registered for Summer and Fall semester this morning. Took me two hours to unsuccessfully register at midnight but I was successful this morning at work. It’s going to be a relaxing summer and hectic fall again, but all worth it. I’ll be getting financial aid support again so that’ll be good.

Here’s my schedules:
Beginning Acting – TWTh – 6-9:50pm (Summer)
Adobe Illustrator – M – 6-11pm (Fall)
Beginning Piano – T – 6-9:50pm (Fall)
Visual Communication – W – 6-10:50pm (Fall)
Fundamental of Interpretation – Th – 7-9:50pm (Fall)
LifeSpan Developement – WEB class (Fall)

I’m scheduled to take my math placement test on 3/25. So hopefully after that I can just add a math class to either my summer or fall schedule. Oh, joy.

Hello my pretties. Like the title? It’s from a fortune cookie that I got last year. I wouldn’t mind putting up a picture of it, but my iPhone doesn’t really take good close-up pictures.

Now, I know I’ve neglected this site for sometime; but I believe if I didn’t neglect it, my entries would be about as boring as watching paint dry. So expect my entries to not be daily, weekly or bi-weekly but more of a monthly basis of updates.

Anywho, about my trip to San Francisco. Nada. My family and I ended up being broke for that week because of Christmas. So at the end of all the extravagant planning, myself along with my father and sister, went to San Francisco for a day to pick up my brother. However, we did manage to sneak a few hours of sightseeing before we headed back. Not what I was hoping to do with my time off of work, but, enough. However, there is an unexpected trip back to San Francisco this weekend, not with my family but with my youth group, to go crabbing. I should least expect it to be exciting but I am still lacking funds from the holidays. So I would probably pass on that unless my family is going, then I would gladly tag along after visiting Advance America. Nevertheless, this weekend will either be event-less or eventful. Expect an update in a month’s time 😛

On towards another load of news, I am starting school today! After a two-year hiatus, I am actually extremely excited, nervous and bleeding with other radical contradicting emotions. I actually have something to look forward to. My first 2 years of college was just hazy. Taking whatever classes I want and not knowing which direction to go. Now I know exactly what I want and where to go. Today, though, would be the class where I am under the waitlist. I just hope that I either enroll into the class fast or kicked out of the class at the same amount of time. After today, my other classes will be easy to get in and hopefully, as easy to pass. The classes that I’m taking this semester are:

Adobe Photoshop (WAITLISTED)
Elementary Voice Level 1
Adobe InDesign
Speech 2 – Interpersonal Communications

Exciting? Ye—eh. But it’s only 11 days into the new year. 354 days to go. Still enough time to grab another fortune cookie.

Routines

October 21, 2009

Work. Home. Work. Home. Work. Home. The same routine over and over and over again. Seems like just a month ago it was January 2009. This year has gone by fast. And still, nothing productive with this life of mine.

So today, I took a step forward. I sent in my application to return to school. Not the best school but the school where I need to right some wrongs. Unfortunately, I won’t be getting the help of financial aid, but at least I got the fee waiver to pay for my classes. Hopefully by the time the semester starts, I will have saved enough to buy the books before income tax kicks in. I have to retake six classes that I received failing grades. Mostly because it was a subject that I had already educated myself about. (ie. graphic design, photoshop, etc). But this time, I will stay focused. Even through the long evenings, boring lectures and, suffice to say, bland projects – I. Will. Stay. Focused.

So let us raise our pencils, pens, mice, whatever we have in our hands, to breaking out of old routines. And starting new ones. Work. School. Home. Work. School. Home. Work. School. Home.
