This event that’s I’m going to starts at 6:30. It’s just about 6PM now and I’m not halfway there yet. Also I left my house at 4:30. I gave myself TWO HOURS to get to this thing when really it should only take about an hour. What the hell. I hate our public transit.

Enjoying the last few minutes of my birthday.... even though I should probably be asleep

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ECHO and to Seth!

I skipped a class on Tuesday and now I'm skipping a class today but it was to do important things so i think I'm justified. A lil bit.

U wild

meanwhile sometimes I’ll skip class because it’s Tuesday. I accidentally slept through the one class I never skip yesterday though and felt terrible

Hey it's better than skipping class because it's class.

I got 100% on a math test and even tho I’ve been doing really well it’s the first time I’ve gotten a perfect score on anything in awhile and it was a huge confidence boost after I was lowkey feeling that I’m not good enough ;;

Don't let math determine your value! It doesn't count! :D Also congratulations on scoring higher in maths than I have in anything ever!

W2g Cat!!

My friend that graduated last semester and is like the it-girl of my department visited today and I was so happy to see her but it also just made me feel like I've been doing nothing useful w my undergrad and I'm not gonna get into a good grad program if I even want to and idk i feel very inadequate rn

What's an it-girl also never feel inadequate ever. College is not Real Life. Real Life is on its way. You're not There Yet and you're not doing anything wrong by not being There Yet. You'd still be 1000% adequate even if you never got into ANY grad program, let alone a good one.

This event that’s I’m going to starts at 6:30. It’s just about 6PM now and I’m not halfway there yet. Also I left my house at 4:30. I gave myself TWO HOURS to get to this thing when really it should only take about an hour. What the hell. I hate our public transit.

I like public transit cause it's juuuuuust risky enough that my brain relaxes without making the windows shut-down noise.

Right now I'm painting a road sign that I stole today.  It was just sitting on the ground and had fallen off the pole so I got out of the car at a red light and snagged it.  It said, "right lane must turn right," but now i made it say, "right must right, what else would right do?" and put some pink clouds on it.  It's coming along nicely.

Kira don't buy into that shame bs. I work a job that's not in my field and I haven't technically done anything with my degree.  I got my education because I had the privilege to do so and because I wanted to learn about sociology.  I didn't get my degree because I wanted more school and a career and a family and a home.  I got my degree so that I could learn about something that mattered to me.  While it's good to set high standards for yourself, don't let anyone else's goals or the reasons behind them make you lose sight of what you actually care about and what you actually want to be doing.  Not to sound preachy, I just absolutely hate when people try to make me feel like I'm not living my life how I should, especially when it comes to education and career choices.

It was also a major confidence boost how I got it and now it just doesn’t feel real.

So I was getting up to go to the bathroom and my foot caught on my power cord, consequently ripping out the plug which then shot all the way across the room. Caught my laptop in mid air (which immediately shut off because my battery is completely dead). My adapter is cracked now :(

I really need a new computer
