the dreams in which i'm dying are the best i've ever had...

so, i found out that i, in fact, didn't have to start school today. today is martin luther king, jr. day... yeah, i found all of this out at about 11pm last night. i feel dumb, but that is alright with me, as long as i get to take the day off anyway. i have actually been quite productive, though: i made an appointment to get a hair cut, i've been looking for a job, i have done some laundry, i have bathed, etc... it's been quite a grand afternoon, really.

i'm actually quite nervous about school this semester. i really want to get into the terry-coker studio [in the fourth year of design school, one is given a 'choice' as to what studio one would like to take during the semester that they're not in rome... by 'choice', i mean that we write down what studio we'd like, 1-4 (the most preferred being number 1) and then someone gets to assign us to a studio. ugh.] but i doubt that i'll actually get in...

it's really strange to me to think that i'm pretty close to graduating [t-minus 1.5 years... this seems like a very short time, when one considers that my degree is a five year degree...]. it really seems like my first semester of college was just yesterday [forgive me for the trite nature of that statement...]. most of my friends are graduating at the end of this semester... but few of them know what the hell they're going to do in the 'real world' - you know, i find it kind of funny that for all of the crap that one is taught in a university setting, most of it is positively bollocks outside of the academic environment. ... c'est la vie. i say that i will probably be a career student or some such thing... that is, assuming all goes according to plan [and it rarely does...]

those last couple of years really fly by. for me, they were the best. you finally get enough experience beneath you to finally enjoy the work.

glad you made it back safely. i'm a little sad though because i enjoyed reliving rome through your experiences.
