About This Entry

I’ve had an apostrophe.

Good grief, look at me. I’ve been blogging non-stop… and there’s no blogathon in sight!

Got my official wedding invitation from Amanda today. I called her to tell her I got it, but she ended up calling me while I was getting the message from HER phone to leave a voice mail message. Too funny! So… we talked without actually talking. Anyhow, I’m not even sure what my plans are when I get up there. I mean, I’m torn between wanting to spend time with my grandmother (Dearma), because we’re crazy-close, and seeing all/some of my old PA friends.

We’ll see how it goes.

In the meantime, my sister helped me along with this revelation yesterday. “You know, they’re all halfway through college.” Meaning, of course, the class I graduated with. And look at me! Full time job (well, by hours anyhow) at an ice cream place, trying to learn what I can while I save up for classes. My gosh, I feel like such a failure!

PS: Yes, the title is supposed to be “apostrophe” and not “epiphany.” Come on, haven’t you seen Hook?

Smee: I’ve just had an apostrophe.
Captain Hook: I think you mean an epiphany.
Smee: No… lightning has just struck my brain.
Captain Hook: Well, that must hurt.

Ok stop that, your not a failure. Just blooming late. I mean come on, how normal and cliche it is to go to college right after high school, never get a job out in the world and learn to support yourself. You are going to college and that is what matters, it isn’t like your going to be stuck in a ice cream shop your whole life. Half full sis, half full!

The furry guy is right. I’m assuming you want to study web design. That’s what I study at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. There are a ton of Art Institutes all over the country and the best part is, they’re not really like college. Don’t tell anyone, but I hardly have to work hard to pass and yet I learn so much every day. There are so many kids who I see every day that don’t really know what they want to do in life. Most of them just woke up one morning after they graduated from high school and said, “hey, I think I’ll try web design. Yeah, that sounds like fun!” They have no clue what they are doing or why. I’ve known for 6-7 years that I wanted to be a web designer and I think that is more important than when I started college. If you know what you want to do and you always put your mind, body, and soul into achieving your goals, don’t worry about when you get to it. At the end of the day, you are farther along than most of the college kids I know.

So don’t give up, save up as much money as you can, and find the school that is just perfect for you. If you haven’t looked at the Art Institutes yet, I recommend you check one out that’s close to you. I commute from home which saves a lot of money and allows me to work at home because of my school schedule. You normally take 5 classes at a time, once a week for 4 hours each. They are longer classes, but you need that much time when working on computers. I put my 5 classes into 2 or 3 days and then I’m home the rest of the week to work or relax. It’s really great. Good luck with everything and don’t give up.

^ Since I can’t reply on your site I’ll reply here. I’ll have to look into art institutes in the area… I always assumed they were more for fine art. Thank you so much, both Andrew AND my furry guy for the encouraging comments.

College is where you’re taught to think like everyone else.

Take this time when you can’t be there and get out of the box and see what YOU want to do.

Half of ALL the people are below average. :)
