shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
I have six more finals.
And I already had my French final so these finals are just for my other three classes.
Rest in pieces me.
So I didn’t get the House Staff/RA job for next year…
but maybe now I can go abroad next spring
So there’s a two week summer abroad trip here at GW that’s all about British fandoms. You get to go on a walking Sherlock Holmes tour in London, a Warner Brothers Harry Potter set tour, you get to go do Doctor Who things in Cardiff, and you go to Abbey Road and do a bunch of Beatles related things. So basically IT’S THE COOLEST TRIP EVER.
Only problem is that its $8,000+ :(
So we went out to dinner and decided to get some tapas. Problem is is that tapas in DC are SUPER expensive. We spent $85 on the five smallest plates of food I’ve ever seen in my life. Naturally we were still hungry, so we went to the McDonald’s down the street.
Navy is winning!
Edit: Now they’re tied :(
Edit: They’re winning again!
Edit: Tied once again.
WHEN I GET BACK TO CAMPUS AND SEE MY ROOMMATE AGAIN
Said no one ever.
This is so true that it’s not even funny.
After a certain point, education just becomes cramming, getting the grade, then forgetting everything you just learned.
It’s sad though, because if you want to “get a real job” you have to go to college, which puts you in debt, then you have to work for the rest of your life paying off that debt.
We’re spending the best times of our lives stuck indoors studying all day when we could be out traveling the world learning much more than what our textbooks have to offer us.
