Hey. So. Life.

Schoolwise, I'm currently in that slack phase between busy phases where I know I should be doing productive work to make the next busy phase less stressful, but I keep procrastinating anyway because I don't know any other way to live. I should really stop doing his sometime in the near future.

Maybe next year it will be easier, because I'm fairly hopeful that next year I might actually like the majority of my classes, unlike this year. Course registration just started this week, and I'm pretty stoked about what I'm signed up for. The EMSP core class is about nature (read=science!) and taught by someone who I think sucks less than our current prof. I'm also taking a course on witch hunts and another about opera, both of which I'm very excited for. I've got one french class that will probably be lame, and then two french lit. classes, which I'm sure will be excellent. And lastly, I have MATH. That's right. Math. I am so stoked about math. I sometimes still regret not being a math major.

I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing with my life this summer. I have been looking forward to summer for months now. I've been planning to stay in the city, live in my own place with two of my BFFs (yes I just said BFFs, dealwithit), get some sort of sweet job, have tons of fun adventures, and basically just have an amazing time. But, well, the "get some sort of sweet job" part has been going less than well so far, and then this week I got a call from the place I worked last summer offering me a job there, which would involve them paying me a ton of money. But it would also involve me living at home for the summer. Both scenarios have their advantages and disadvantages, so now I'm not sure what I'm going to do...

Last night, my dear friend JDFL and I performed in "Big Night" which is a sort of talent show that gets put on every year here. He sang and I did the piano accompaniment, for Running for Home by Matthew Good Band. It went really really well, we keep getting so many randos coming up and complimenting us on it, which is kind of cool.

Given this success, JDFL has decided to start a band, which I think is the best idea I have heard in a very long time. Music is one of the three things that I miss about high school (the other two being math and the friends that I've grown apart from). I mean, sure, I still have my instruments, I still play on my own, but it's just not the same as playing with a group. I miss that, so much. So yeah. I am very much in favour of a band being started.

Anyway. Hope you all had a lovely Thursday!

If you're not picky about your job, there's probably a lot of opportunity in just handing out resumes in crazy places. I'd recommend working for McDonalds, but honestly? eff that. It sucks and I need a new job myself.
There's a website catering specifically to students looking for summer jobs, I'm not sure what it is off the top of my head, though. I'll ask my resourcefully unemployed friend back home about it and get back to you.
Ps. When I thought about you and John at Big Night, I got so sad that I missed it I cried.
