I was taken to the fair today. Spent $30 in under an hour...man, they make ALOT of money there.

Then I wrote a paper on religion in politics and generational shifts in such in two hours while watching Doctor Who and BSG. I doubt it will win anything but I was amused to realized that I wrote a paper that included not only Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson but also Jon Stewart. I'm so easily entertained...

John Donne on religion...

"...May all be bad; doubt wisely; in a strange way
To stand inquiring right, is not to stray;
To sleep, or run wrong, is. On a huge hill,
Cragged and steep, Truth stands, and he that will
Reach her, about must, and about must go,
And what the hill's suddenness resists, wins so;..."

Official Announcement Released.

I've decided. I've changed the entire direction of my life and where I'm going is far less stable. Things are going to get very interesting.

I've dropped Biology and I'm no longer pre-med. Good thing - I don't have to take the MCAT anymore. Bad thing - I'm not going to be a doctor. It's weird to even type that. It's been the plan for so long now that it's going to take awhile to get used to not going down that road.

So what am I going to do?

Well, next semester I'm staying as far away from Baylor as possible. I think it'll be good for me. I'll be working my ass off to pay bills and eat and such but I will also be taking as many hours as I can in a program at TSTC (Texas State Technical College aka the poor kids school in Waco). The program is Media Communication and Information. I'll be trained in photography, audio, video, graphics, and a little web page design.

Collapse )

The plan is to take around 18 hours at TSTC next semester and then go back to Baylor and finish out with a degree (BA) in Professional Writing. I was beyond relieved when I found out it won't take any extra time to finish at Baylor. While I'm finishing up at Baylor, I'm going to also be taking a few classes at the TSTC program and interning wherever I can (racking up the experience). Then summer after I graduate (May 2007), I'll finish TSTC and be ready to work...somewhere.

I'm actually gonna do this. I'm really very excited and can't wait to get started but at the same time I'm still in a little bit of a shock that I'm really going to do this. Plus, this a much less defined territory than medicine. I really have no idea what I'm doing or where I'm going to end up. So much for that ordinary life.

To be continued...

Because I don't have enough to do.

I'm reading "The Great Divorce" by C.S. Lewis.

And I love it. So much.

"We are not living in a world where all roads are radii of a circle and where all, if followed long enough, will therefore draw gradually nearer and finally meet at the centre; rather in a world where every road, after a few miles, forks into two, and each of those into two again, and at each fork you must make a decision. Even on the biological level life is not like a river but like a tree. It does not move towards unity but away from it and the creatures grow further apart as they increase in perfection. Good, as it ripens, becomes continually more different not only from evil but from other good."

"A sum can be put right: but only by going back till you find the error and working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on. Evil can be undone, but it cannot 'develop' into good. Time does not heal it."

"But what, you ask, of Earth? Earth, I think, will not be found by anyone to be in the end a very distinct place. I think earth, if chosen instead of Heaven, will turn out to have been, all along, only a region in Hell: and earth, if put second to Heaven, to have been from the beginning a part of Heaven itself."
