WHO BE THIS MAN?

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 16, 2015, 5:45 PM
Yes, I am alive. It was time to replace the journal entry bitching about the terrible feminism poem from last year. It was cramping up the front page.

I've been super busy since I last took part in the writings of the dA-journals. I started college last year in the fall at Weber State University. Yep. YOU HEARD RIGHT. I graduated high school in 2003, so this is pretty much a sudden drop into the morning-cold dunk tank of higher education. I learned this fairly quick: tell someone you're in college, and the first question they ask: WHAT'S YOUR MAJOR? Well, I'll tell you before the two of you people who are bothering to read this get to ask. HEALTH PROMOTION (with a minor in Nutrition Education). What the hell am I going to do with that degree, you may also ask (this is always the follow up question everyone musters). IDUNNO. Maybe I'll work in public health or in a clinical/hospital setting. Maybe I'll hit up graduate school concurrently with employment so I can teach at the college level later—sounds fun to me!

Anyway, I just finished up spring break in my second semester of school. Did I hit up the beaches of LA and smack all dem asses? Hell no. I studied and studied some more. Me-time for the whole 9 days of spring break: watching Anchorman 2 on Netflix (which made me LOL at least a dozen times) and hitting up the all-you-can-eat-pizza-buffet-that-isn't-befitting-of-a-health-promotion-major-for-gosh-darn-sake. No time! I'm doing 18 credits and I work seven days a week. How the hell do you college-people do this? Here are my seven classes this semester: Medical Terminology, Human Biology, Interpersonal Relationships, Science and Application of Human Nutrition, Elementary Public Health, Introduction to Music, and Walking for Fitness I. 

For those that know me and my writing, no I ain't doing no English major. But, damn, English 1010 was EASY (and fun!) last year; after English 2010, I'm gunning for an English tutor position at the school. The pay is lousy, but I think the experience would be fun and rewarding. I'm also doing remarkably well in my Human Biology and Nutrition courses, and I'm thinking about applying as a Supplemental Instructor for those courses.

Anyway, I'm still only a Freshman, so if any of you upper classfolk or graduates have any advice on how to make the best of my college experience, I'm all ears!

Next on my journal agenda: where be my writing? I AIN'T GOT NONE. I haven't written a lick of poetry in more than a year and a half; I no longer tell people I write poetry, because it isn't true—how long do you stop doing something before it becomes something you don't do anymore? I think more than a year and half qualifies. I want to say I feel creatively empty, but the word "empty" carries such a negative connotation, implying a void that must be filled. However, I don't feel this longing to write like I used to; I've said what I needed to say in my poetry, and the year and half of no writing hasn't sparked any need for me to write—not even random scribbles. Perhaps creatively empty is the wrong term: I feel creatively full, like when you just can't muster down one more slice of pizza at the buffet. When you can't eat anymore, you just can't eat, or in this case: I just can't write. I think in time I may start writing again; the refractory period between bouts of writing has become a long one, though, but I think I'll write again when the spark ignites. In the meantime, I won't force it.

Until my next journal entry, whenever that is: :cookie::cookie::cookie:

NOT LIKES: Wearing black or white, talking on the phone, coleslaw or onion rings, waking up before noon, soda pop, slow motion in movies (except The Matrix), Harry Potter or Twilight werewolves, monetary systems, TMZ, chewing gum, wrong use of its and it's, cute things with penors, running out of cookies.

What's up Will? Did you know you can now write poems by *not* writing them? zalaria.deviantart.com/art/The… :P

By the way, I just noticed you like MTG, do you still play?
