I am writing this at 1:48 PM eastern time on Election Day. So, everyone who is legal and registered: VOTE!!!!! Everyone else: pray that Senator Kerry is elected so that we don’t have to deal with President Bush for another four years! I don’t think I could stand that. I live in a battleground state, but my home is in California. Go Cali for Kerry! I’m registered here, so my vote will count for more than it would there, since California is pretty much a Democratic state through and through… except for the whole Schwarzenegger being our Republican governor. Go figure. My boyfriend said that NYC is like that too… Democratic except for their Republican mayors. Shrug. I guess as long as it works out, whatever. Oh, by the by… I have a boyfriend. Just thought I’d let y’all know. He’s sweet and gives excellent back massages. He’s teaching me how to give massages so I can help people with back pain! W00t, go random yet useful skills! And, he likes anime. That’s awesome. Our personal beliefs are more in line with one another than my ex-boyfriend’s and mine. It’s nice not to be arguing all the time. Anyway, I went to all my classes today (all three of ’em!) which, let me tell you, is a serious accomplishment!!! I haven’t been to all three of my Tuesday/Thursday classes in literally a month. I’m working on not failing them. I’ve got one of my four classes (I have one on Monday/Wednesday too) down, no problem… will probably catch a ‘B’ in that one. But the other three… I think I’ll pass two of them, but the fourth… I’m really not sure. I might have to take another MSS (Mind, Self, and Spirit) course, which is a requirement to graduate. I reeeeeeeally don’t want to do that, but we’ll see if I can pull off passing once again. Also, I’ve given up on the idea of double majoring; I can’t even handle the classes I have now very well, much less add THAT kind of pressure onto my schedule. So, I’m majoring in English: Creative Writing and minoring in History. What I’m going to do with that kind of major after I graduate, I don’t know. I can’t think that far ahead without freaking out. Okay: breathe, Eve, breathe. One day at a time. So now I’m off to decide my classes for next semester. Gotta be optimistic, right? Right!
