Yay! Interesting is good. I guess my year should be interesting, too. I really really should get a job, and I'm really really anxious about it. I kinda don't know anything about how to go about it and I'm kinda scared to ask, too... I look forward to it, though. Also, I really should do the thesis. I don't wanna have done the whole course to end up without a degree.
My school had a very good career services department whose entire job was helping graduates get jobs. I leaned on them pretty hard for a while for job-getting advice and help. I don't really know if you have the same thing available.
I don't want to do what I studied. I don't even know what do anthropologists that don't want to be scholars do. And I don't want to be a scholar. I'm gonna try to get something that lets me draw... and if that fails, I'll see what the hell can antrhopologists do. Probably get a decently paid useless desk job, I guess... if you're lucky it won't have very horrible ethical implications. I should ask my animation teacher if there's anywhere he knows that I could apply to. Next week when I have class, I'll ask. Now, the thing is he's a good guy, but pretty jaded and he will surely tell me that there's nothing good here and blah blah blah. I'll try anyways and then try sending portfolios anywhere, too. I'm just so very anxious about it. It's the first time in around 20 years that my year doesn't start with me knowing what is it that I'll be doing most of the time the whole year. And the first time I won't be mostly "just studying". As I said, I look forward to it. But I'm also pretty scared of not being able to move forward.
You ever wonder about it when you get showed an apartment that you like and then when you ask to apply for it they tell you it's already taken? You'd think people showing off apartments would be more on top of such things.
Well, is it back already? How have you coped? No, it hasn't been a week yet... Or maybe you found the colorful real world out there (?!) when internet went off, leaving this place to finally die forever D:?!
I've been away for a week in a house with the view of a lake. I'd like to live in a place with a lake when I grow up !
I know! I'll take a mermaid course, and then I'll take it again backwards and then I'll become a real fish . Ummmh... But then I'd be at risk of becoming a saltwater fish and never be able to see a lake again... I have to think about it.
I got to swim in the lake, too! Is it because they're too cold or is there any other reason you can't swim in your lakes? That sucks, though. I always feel attracted to bodies of water. Except... our river. Our river is not swimmer friendly, I think. I wouldn't try.
Some lakes can be pretty dirty and unpleasant to swim in, I guess. Around here lakes are all there is so all swimming is either in a lake or a swimming pool. Unless you count Great Lakes as "sea" but I'm pretty decently far from those and don't really know the ground rules for swimming in them.
First time I saw an ocean was only a couple years ago myself, so I can relate to kewdle on that. Any ocean is indeed very far from home for me. It seems a bit much to get on a plane and fly out just to go swimming. Anyway, lakes seems like they'd generally have an advantage of generally being much calmer waves-wise.
