I may have forgotten that this existed (thanks, Tumblr).

George R.R. Martin's blog led me back here. Shame on me for forgetting. I met some really great people here. Let's face it, this site & the people on it got me through high school. It looks so different now.

Just thought I'd say hey, old friend. *pats LJ on the back*

I am so glad to have pre-recruiting night/day done, but now I am beyond anxious to see if I get any interviews out of it. Waiting is always the worst part.

I've also enjoyed this weekend in football. Michigan won, MSU lost, Panthers won, Patriots lost. That's a good weekend. Well, except my fantasy teams. I went 2-1 last weekend but it's looking like 1-2 this weekend barring a slight miracle. And of course, if I had stuck with my original line-up it would have been 2-1 again. Damn, I even second guess my self in internet sports. I need to work on that.

Oh and Wednesday, I am seeing Madonna in Chicago. I can't even. So excited.

Oh come on Sports Gods... You couldn't give me this one miracle? Haven't I suffered enough?

12/13/12. That will be my last day at Grand Valley after six and a half years and two degrees. Thinking about that day just gives me a strange feeling. So I'll think about something else.

Tonight's class was entity taxation. There aren't as many people as I would expect in the class since it's material that is covered on the CPA exam, but a lot have taken it already and it might be offered in the other semesters as well. The prof is a little bland in the way he speaks, but then again we didn't have much to talk about tonight. He just did a brief overview of entities and we were out in a little over a half hour. Happy first week to me!

Just got Melissa started on the second season of Battlestar Galactica, and she's already yelling... What happens next?!? I have to knooooooooooow! Let's watch the next one! I'm so glad to be with someone who embraces my nerdy fandoms.

Still sleepy. Melissa is gone to her 8:00 class. I don't have any today.

Yesterday was the first day of my last semester, which I guess is supposed to mean something. Mostly I just had a terribly unlucky day. With the transportation service changing without warning (for the first time in my 6 years here), my head phones breaking without warning or visibly external damage, and the bookstore still not having my materials for one of my classes.

But the latest internship I applied for has not turned me down yet. And I finally finished The Hunger Games.

Tonight I saw my brother get his first taste of Varsity football. He was only in a couple of plays in the final quarter, but I'm glad I got to see him out there and he seemed to be excited about it too. It wasn't perfect, but they won 30 - 6. While I enjoyed being able to see the game, I did not enjoy many of the other spectators. Mind you, they were fairly decent because their team was winning, but high school football parents always have something to complain about. My kid is better. They should've run instead. Why is he still in the game? Why aren't they trying to score again? Oh that was a terrible call. Oh my goodness people. You are not the coach. This is not the NFL. This is not even about you. This is about your kids. So just fucking cheer when they do something well and cheer even louder encouragement when they struggle.

Oh look, it's my new haircut and Melissa's wonderful face. It's so nice to have shorter hair. It feels light. I can't wait to wash it tomorrow. That's always been my favorite part of a new haircut.

So today, in between working on my cross stitch Zoidberg (He has an entire head, most of a claw and a little bit of shirt), I actually opened up Blackboard to look for a class syllabus. I haven't received any emails from profs yet, but I was kind of hoping to find something.

While I am excited to be done "paying" for school, I'm not sure how excited I am to be done. School has been one of the few things in life that I've actually been good at (most of the time). When that's gone, I'll just have that piece of paper and likely never a great job in the field listed on it.

I wish I could stop stressing out about it so much, because it's starting to leak into my dreams, but I just can't. It's getting closer and closer to my debt being due and I don't know if I'll ever have anything to show for it.

Time to watch The Hunger Games now.
