So, election day is tomorrow. I already sent in my absentee ballot. I just want to say that I don't give a crap who you're going to vote for, just vote. Unless you're under 18, you poor souls. Especially you poor souls who are 17 1/2 and won't be able to vote for the next president until you're 21. Because I know what that's like. Even though I probably would have voted for Bush in the last election. Stop making those retching sounds! Why are you all running away? I had issues back then! Worse than now, almost! Come back here! *sniff* Anyway, I'm not going to come out of the political closet and tell my very Republican family who I voted for. At least not until I'm financially independent. Though I have no idea what I'm going to do after graduation. There are a couple people I might want to live with, but I don't know. It's kind of depressing. But hey, I still have a semester and a half left. I registered for 2 classes today: Forms of Drama (with Bulman, one of the most amazing teachers ever) and Clinical Psych. I need to get the add card thingy signed for the advanced fiction writing workshop, so I'll stop by Kerry Bakken's office tomorrow. I haven't had her yet, I hear she's tough but you learn a lot. And Ben will hopefully be in that class too, so we can make fun of each other's writing. Er, I mean, critique it. Because we don't do enough of that at Golem. And Nesset will be my comp advisor, since he's the fiction guru here. So I'm going to submit a couple works of fiction to him and Chris Bakken by Friday so I can hopefully get approved to do a creative comp (I think it will be approved, since I'm a good writer despite my lack of self-confidence). And then the comp proposal! Weeee! I think I'll do a collection of short stories. It kills me that I can't do genre or young characters, since that's what I love to write, but I can do it. 50-70 pages of polished fiction in a semester really isn't that bad. Sure, I'll be taking 3 other 300-400-level courses, but I don't think this comp will destroy me. Once I get my proposal approved, I can get cracking and at least draft out some stories, particularly over winter break. I can get some inspiration in Hawaii. Yaaaaay! So things will be ok.
Note to body: Stop being retarded and just heal already. It's not that bad. You don't have to keep bleeding every time something barely brushes the hurt area. You're scaring me, even though I know nothing is really wrong. Be a good little body and heal yourself.
And this is me not getting work done. But hey, I registered, that's productive. 2 classes down, 1 to go, plus comp preparations. Weeee! Vote Cyclor!
