2:14 pm - Haven't updated for awhile
So I decided that I should have majored in criminal justice (far too late as I now have a theatre degree and history minor). Now theatre isn't a bad thing and it has helped me quite a bit. I can read people easier, speak in public without getting insanely nervous, etc. Now why did I major in theatre? Well, I didn't like my previous major (Secondary Education- History) but had no idea what the hell I really wanted to major in. I saw theatre as "the easy way out." Now I'm kicking myself for that decision. Why?

Well for starters, I don't feel like I accomplished anything. Now many people have said to me 'I could never do that!' but I really feel like somewhat of a failure because I took the easy way out and I know it. Basically I went to my classes, acted like myself in front of everyone, read a play and saw some live theatre (that part was enjoyable, I saw some really great stuff) and I got easy A's. That was waaaay too easy in my opinion. I need to feel like I actually worked for something.

Now, I've always been interested in police work and law but when I said this way back in the early days of high school people laughed at me. I remember someone said "You don't want to be a cop. They work too hard and don't make any money. Besides that it's dangerous work and not worth taking the risk for the little bit of money they'll pay you."

So like a lot of other things I wanted to do with my life I let myself get talked out of it. Now looking at almost every job I would like to do I would need a criminal justice degree. Toward the end of my college career at UW-Milwaukee I requested information from ITT-Tech about their criminal justice program. Well let's just say that school was calling me, e-mailing me, sending me mail and driving me nuts asking when I was planning on starting. Jesus Christ! I hadn't even made a decision yet! I just wanted some information. So finally I wrote the guy who kept e-mailing me and said I going to finish my theatre degree and wanted to find a job and make some money before I went back to school. Harassment stopped. Whew...

Anyway, so the more I think about it and look into it, I've decided that I should reconsider going to ITT-Tech, so I requested a new information packet about the criminal justice program. Well, the guy who was annoying the hell out of me before remembered me and is harassing me again.

I got a call the other day and it was the ITT-Tech guy asking when I was planning on starting. I told me him I wasn't sure and that I just wanted some information on the criminal justice program. This guy asked me what my previous degree was for and I told him theatre. Suddenly this guy starts going on and on about design and CAD programs that they had and how he could send me some information about those. I told him no, I just wanted the criminal justice info...

So yesterday I'm going through the mail and I find something for me from ITT-Tech. I thought thank god they finally just sent me the info packet. I opened it up and noticed that the packet was for web design, CAD, etc. At first I thought maybe this was a packet on all of their programs so I paged through it. Nope. All about their art degrees and not one single thing about criminal justice.

So I've had it with ITT-Tech, I'm looking into a different school. Hell, maybe even UWM again since I have many of the GER's already done and could probably get through in a couple of years. Either way, I think criminal justice is the way I want to go... thank you for listening to me rant.

You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. Though it is generally taken that agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in God, it is possible to be a theist or atheist in addition to an agnostic. Agnostics don't believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof).

Agnosticism is a philosophy that God's existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.

9:14 pm - Uhhh
Man... it's time to leave the Milwaukee area... just a few months left until graduation, until the end of Project Crew. Yes, as sad as it will be I'll be happy to let the dorms go... 5.5 years is too many.

What I'm going to do after this is beyond me... I've been looking but nothing is catching my interest... don't think I want to be a janitor again. Well whatever, time to clean my dump of a room.

11:23 pm - Oh why?
Why? Why did I eat that burger out of the garbage at work? I mean yeah it was still wrapped and sitting right on top... but I was already full. Now my tummy hurts and I'm stuck here for another 30 minutes.

Oh well, who gives a shit? Anyway, yeah life has been uneventful for the most part. I need something ridiculous to happen or something. An adventure of some sort... god I can't wait to get out of school and not really have it matter where I end up. I need to get the hell out of Milwaukee... this place has gotten so old. I'm thinking one last road trip before it gets too cold and I have wait god knows how many months for it to be nice again.

Now I'm just rambling... screw this, I'm going to leave early.

Democrat
Threat rating: High. The Bush administration is
concerned that it may not get a second term.
Therefore, we are going to change the rules so
that each Democrat vote only counts as 0.2
votes because Democrat is a shorter word than
Republican


What threat to the Bush administration are you?

11:34 pm - An update... no I'm not dead, just very busy
Well, this has to have been the busiest summer of my life. I don't think there was a single weekend where I wasn't doing anything. If I found a free night, it was extremely rare and I usually ended up spending it asleep. Let's see how much I can fill everyone in on in here...

Since I last wrote, I moved out of my apartment and into an apartment in Shorewood with 2 new roommates. My new roommates are awesome and tons of fun to be around, but sadly Courtney or "Slutney or Slut Cakes" as I called her will be moving back home making it difficult for me to make fun of her as much but oh well. I love my new roommates! My new apartmentis awesome and lot better than my last 2. My room is huge and I actually have a closet! I still have a lot to unpack in my room and still have to clean my other apartment, but I have awhile left to do that.

I found out this past week that I will in fact be graduating in May... and here I thought I had at least 2 years left... so now I have to take a class next summer in order to keep my job through the summer... damn I didn't see this coming, if I wanted to I could very well make this my last summer on Project Crew... that actually scares me since I have no idea what I want to do with my life. I mean I'm graduating with a degree in theatre but I would make more money with a Project Crew- like job. I honestly I never thought I would graduate, that I would give up and drop out before I made it there... now it's a solid reality staring me in the face... but hey it had to come sooner or later. I'll probably just apply for a state job, maybe even stay on the UW-Milwaukee campus (not the dorms) until I find something better, who knows? All I know is that I have less than a year to figure things out...

Things at work aren't too bad, even though I feel like I'm running on empty. I am now the assistant day crew supervisor but the way my boss talks, it almost sounds like I am still lead supervisor on nights. My new roommate Robbi is now training to become my assistant supervisor when Nicole leaves... actually when Nicole leaves I'll have 2 assistant supervisors... this guy Mike that we hired around the same time as Robbi is in training now as well.

Well other than that I've just been working a ton of overtime and then moving, everything is over here now but the microwave and there are a couple boxes at the old place that need to go to my parents house or Goodwill, I'll probably be doing that in the next couple of days.

Anyway, enough rambling from me, I'll try to post another update later.

Going to New England until the 11th, first time I've taken a vacation since starting my job 4 years ago... this comes just in time too since I'm starting to get really depressed about a lot of stuff and just need to get away from here for awhile.

2:06 am - That was my car!
Well, the Gothmobile is injured. I came home from Robbi and Julayne's house tonight around midnight and parked right in front of my apartment. I went into my apartment and about 5 minutes later I hear a crash and someone yelling "SHIT! GO! GO!" then tires screeching. I ran to the window and saw a car driving away really fast, I caught a look at the plate and it looked like it started with UHS but that's about it. I ran downstairs and looked... the rear passenger door is smashed in (window amazingly didn't break at all) and the rear driver's side tire was bent in from where the dipshits had literally pushed my car up onto the curb... yeah they hit it that fucking hard!

The idiots pulled out of an angle parking spot and directly hit my car!! I called the cops who told me I needed to come in and fill out an accident report. My parents are out of town so I called Robbi who offered to come with me to the police station. I forgot my ID so we stopped back at my house to pick it up and Robbi found a piece of the asshole's tail light on the ground. We took it in and the car wobbled the entire way, I think the tire is close to coming off. The cops took a report and I took Robbi and the car home. Tomorrow I have to call the insurance company and blah blah blah.

I'm almost positive I'll see that damn car that hit me again... I don't think the driver knows I saw him or the car. But yes my car is out of commission for awhile which sucks because I really need it right now too. Thank god I'm fully covered... I'm just so angry right now... I'm really glad that Robbi came over though because I was damn near crying. That car is my pride and joy, I worked so many hours to be able to afford that car. My car is a black 2000 Honda Civic LX for anyone who is curious or didn't know. Well... looking on the bright side now maybe I have have all the little dings and scratches taken care of now too.

I hope those idiots are dumb enough to bring the car around again because I'll be watching...

current mood: sad
