Wrapping Up The Summer - Part Two: Looking Ahead

  During today's final, I felt oddly at peace as I paced through the 50 questions.  Many of the answers came easily, much different from my last test, in which I sat aimlessly hoping for solutions to spring from some remote indistinct and dank corner of my subconscious.  Who knew that when you study and get your mind off stupid insignificant %@#%, you can actually do more than give your self a massive headache at test time?

  So that's it, no work left to be done, just waiting for grades.  Luckily, I'm plenty occupied with pre-season catalog and package sales at work, and club position duties, extracurriculars, and, oh yeah, the first stirrings on completing my transfer applications. 

  As for fall, I feel like this is going to be a quick few weeks off, with the number of books assigned for the semester. The book list for fall includes:

  • Performance Workshop TPA-1290-15073
    • No Listing (...yet)
  In other news, my birthday's just a couple months out, and I was thinking of some self gifting.  I think I finally want to get that bracelet tat I've been wanting for ages.  As I wrote to my grandmother after telling her about the great idea, "The song is "Question Existing" by Rihanna, who wouldn't generally be the first artist I'd consider scribing on to my skin, but the questions are timeless to me.  I can't ever see myself regretting these or being embarrassed to show them to my grandchildren."

Who am I living for?
Is this my limit?
Can I endure some more?
