Dear sir, I quit!

Well, after much blog hiatus, I'm finally back with an important update about the future of my career as a college student. After suffering some major setbacks with classes, grades, and personal problems, I've made the decision to take some time off school.

So I cancelled my room assignment for next year, refrained from registering for fall classes and contacted Registration about my enrollment options. Finals are next week, I'll be moving out after that, and while I'll be sad to leave behind my cute little studio apartment, I'm not upset about leaving university behind for some time.

I've had to really stop and examine where my life is going and what I want out of it. I had a pretty solid plan in the beginning, but a lot of that doesn't seem as appealing now and I don't have the same passion. I know a lot of that is due in part to my depression/anxiety issues, but also because my interests have changed. 

I still love the idea of pursuing linguistics as a …

WINTER IS COMING

Dun Dun DUNNNNN!


So the boy and I went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Saturday night. I'm not gonna lie, I'm not a huge fan of Captain America - he's the most 'vanilla' as far as the Avengers go and I'm admittedly part of Loki's army so maybe there's a bit of bias there; BUT I totally enjoyed this film. 

And it makes me really glad that I recently made the decision to view the first Captain America film otherwise I'm sure I'd have been completely lost. 



So you've got your standard line-up of characters: Nick Fury is still full of sass, Black Widow is still a redhead, and Steve is slowly adjusting to the modern world, via some internet usage. The new guy is Sam - aka The Falcon. And of course the villain- The Winter Soldier.

I never read any of the Captain America comics, otherwise I might have known who this guy was from the beginning, but as it stands I'm still a bit new to the fandom and I had no clue. So when the soldier…

Late Night Session #4

Wow, it's been a while since I've done one of these. Basically, these are my sleep deprived ramblings and more so for vomiting my own thoughts than anything cohesive for people to read.

It's 4 am and my eyes hurt. Why am I not sleeping? I haven't been sleeping properly for a while now. I lay down and nothing happens. So I'm up trying to entertain myself in the wee hours of the morning and spend the day feeling like shit.

Blegh.

It's an endless cycle. Right now I'm sipping on coffee; and eating toast so it doesn't upset my stomach. I need to be awake for class at 9. It's going to be painful. Plus I have possibly two professors to chat with and maybe a trip to the Registrations Office. Gods....

There's so much I have to do to get caught up and a lot of work sitting in front of me. It's gonna take some pretty intense discipline and I hope I have what it takes to survive this. Luckily, I'm not on my own - I've got some people in my corne…
