Today I got bullied into "family bonding fun time". This loosely translates into standing around the home depot while my mom tries to get Wayne in the shower department to help her look at shower doors that she can't afford. Anyway, there was also mandatory movie watching time. So she rents The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. That was quite possibly the most awkward two hours of my life.
First off, So yeah, I got accepted into college. Which is pretty significant to me; I finally feel like I'm actually doing something with my life and it's going somewhere. It's been heading that way for awhile, but this really made that obvious to me. Which is both awesome and horrifying at the same time. While college will be awesome, I'm worried about dealing with the [censored] of paperwork that seems to drift everywhere. And finding a way to make money spontaneously appear in front of me. And about a million other things that randomly pop up into my head. My goal is to get a doctorate in computer science (because, you know, that'll be useful), maybe picking up some spare bachelor's if they only take a few more credits to get. Obviously that'll put me in a big hole debt-wise, but I'm hoping to offset that with as much free money as possible. Surprisingly enough, my parents aren't going to help with that, for reasons that can be discussed at some other time, ere I become angry and resentful. It seems like everyone here is either in college, grad school, or has had colleging. So I'm wondering, what advice do y'all have for someone who will (hopefully) be attending college a year from now?
