Bind, Torture, Kollege.
I’m not an avid blogger, but I decided now would be a good time to hopefully figure out just what I am doing. The end of my junior year in high school is slowly approaching, first off! Couldn’t be more ecstatic about it, either. In all honesty, it feels like THIS year has been my senior year, what with all my college planning. Incase you were wondering, I’m hoping to apply to UT-Austin to major in either psychology or computer science. I’ll be just that much closer to you FFF maniacs, I reckon, which is something to look forward to. Luckily, because of my rank in class, my admittance is guaranteed. All I need to worry about is finding a decently priced place to reside in (or at least a decent park or alley in which to squat for a few years without much authoritative trouble—maybe Waterloo? :P). College is one expensive place to even dream about without nightmares of student loans and evil professors. If anything goes sour in the planning process, I hope to fall back on going to ACC. I feel a desperate desire to live in Austin, is all. In the case that you haven’t heard, Harlingen, TX is a pretty hum-drum city. At least in the “fun” aspect of living, you know? All this college stuff aside, I’m hoping to get a job this summer—one I can balance between a few college courses. I’m thinking Starbuck’s barista (it’s one of the few job offers available for a 17 year-old here) or a sales representative/cashier at Game Stop. We’ll see, I suppose. If I save up for anything, it’s either a drum set or college. I haven’t figured out which is more annoying not to have enough money for. For now, I guess I’m just doing as best as I can in school without slacking off in my gaming. :P
What kinds of jobs did you guys start off with? If you guys live in Austin, how do you get by? I’m interested in these types of things! Anyway, have a good one for now. :)
