Joygasm ...

Do those construction guys ever learn? Once again, pounding on the ceiling/floor at 7:25 in the morning. It's still not 8 yet. They behaved for one lousy day. Now they're back to "Must pound everything in the first 10 minutes and wake all of those damn kids up and then go have a coffee break!" Grrrah ...

So yeah, now that I'm up, I've been looking into other schools. UIC or Columbia look good. They're half the price of DePaul's tuition. I don't know if costuming is just a little obsession with me right now, or if it will really carry on into a career. I just don't know what I want to do any more.

Professional Internet Junkie? Nah, I'd probably have to learn Java ...

Graphic artist? Graphic artist teacher? A teacher might be good. I don't mind kids ...

I could possibly get a major in graphic design and work for my cousin Tony. He owns his own graphic arts company. That would be a pretty sweet deal. I don't know my cousin Tony all that well though. I've only seen him at my Grandpa's funeral and then at my Aunt's funeral. My dad told me to call him, but I feel so weird doing that.

I can't take a year off of school, because I probably will never go back. I don't want to leave DePaul, but there's nothing I can do here. Not to mention I've been wait-listed for housing. They said that I could be bumped straight to DePaul on Michigan, which would be really really great. Expensive, but great.

I just took like ... 5 minutes to look up the majors in the LA&S school. I think a major in communications art and design won't be too bad. I already have a few of the required classes. I'd have to take 5 courses a semester to graduate in time, I think ... and since I'm already in the school, I don't need to transfer or anything.

Except of course if I've been accepted into the Theater school ... >< I still need to call Sam and ask what's up with that ... if they want me or not. Because if they do, I don't think I can do it. I just CANNOT pay $31,000 a fuckin' year. Damn expensive schools ...

Great, now that it's 8, the hammering has stopped ... fuckers ...

*sigh*

Why do I always find out about cool things after everyone else?

I'm really likeing Evanscence. The girl's got a great voice. It's nice to hear some awesome female vocals in rock music ... I don't really think Kittie or Courtney Love or Madonna counts. This music is good. I'm listening to Wake me up Inside. I saw the video and it was really cool. Although I kept chanting "grow wings! GROW WIIIIIING!" but she wouldn't ... I've been meaning to DL this song for a while ...

Well ... here I am ... 9:30 ... everyone I know is still asleep, having nice dreams and the like. *sigh* And I just had an esspresso'ed cookie's and creme chillichino. So I'm wired. I need to get a hair cut ... if I had money, I'd go do that today. I also need to head to the costume shop and get some black gloves and possibly more ben nye stuff. Damn Kozi and his white face fetish! He's almost ALWAYS completely geisha white. I can think of only a few exceptions ... not counting photoshoots, he's only been non-white ... in the Bride of Rose movie. That's ... yeah, that's about it. Oh well.

I need a keyboard protector. A friend of mine suggested that I go to a gas station with my keyboard and use the pressurized air to blow the bits out of my keyboard. I could do that ... there is a gas station right across the street ...

Math is fun!

Calculating my hours put in at Home Depot, Orientation and Cashier College included, I would have a total of 52.5 credit hours. That's 12.5 more hours than I'm suppose to work. Being part-time, I can't have more than 40 hours. I remember last year at HD, they wouldn't even give me 40 hours. They'd give me 39.75 hours.

Technically, they'd have to pay me time and a half for the extra 12.5 hours I worked. If they jip me on my paycheck, I will be SO VERY PISSED. They cannot DO that. This store is so bloody unorganized, they will PAY me for their mistakes.

So, taking into account that they may take away ... oh ... I don't know, 40% for taxes?
