Maps & Atlases is playing here on Friday, so I’m gonna go see them. I hadn’t heard of them before, but a friend told me about it, and they’re pretty deece. Also, a friend’s band is opening for them and I’m stoked for him about that.
Just got back from an awesome little skate sesh. on campus. Landing a bunch of tricks, getting it all back right before the snow comes, haha.
When is the Open Mic on Friday? And in which Hall? I want to go.
So beyond stoked to see Bill Nye tomorrow night. I’m gonna get there at five and just wait until seven, thinking about all the sciencey things he’s gonna say. I’m gonna try to find something for him to sign too, if I get the chance to meet him. That would be way cool. I want a picture too. I’ve been waiting for this day for most of my life. I can’t wait!
I think all the NMU Tumblr kids that follow each other, should have a meet-up when school starts. It’ll be real awkward, I’m sure.
So much has changed over the course of the summer. I moved into my first apartment, which is alright, I decided I’m going back to school, and I got a new car. I know there’s more, but I think they’re all little things that add up to big things like becoming more aware of myself, my life, my surroundings, and what I want out of life. These are my demands and life better put out.
I know for sure that I’m going to start a clothing company. One way or another it’s going to happen, and I’ll do what I can to make it so. I’ve been set on this for a long time now. It’s one of the few things in life that I’m absolutely sure of. I won’t work a job, sitting behind a desk for my whole life, thinking “What if?” Instead of doing that I’m going to do what I want. Even if I don’t make a lot of money doing it, I don’t care at all. It’s not about money or fortune, it’s about doing what I love. I can’t see myself doing anything else other than this. This is it.
I can’t wait for school to start up again. I know towards the end of the last school year, all I wanted was out. I couldn’t stand being in a place that didn’t feel “right.” School had once been something I longed for, and it ended up becoming something I dreaded. Instead of feeling like I wanted to go to school, it felt like I needed to go, and that just isn’t something I’m in to. Around five months later now, I can’t wait to go back. I’m only taking two classes, but that’s enough for me. I want to meet new people and make new friends. Surround myself with positivity and let inspiration come from it. I’m not one to start conversations, but that really has to change if I want to make new friends, unless someone starts talking to me first. And if I don’t talk to anyone, I guess I don’t really want it that badly.
This school year marks a new start in my life, although, I have many “new,” starts throughout the year. Maybe this one is the one that I need.
Second week of orientation on campus. Last week I met three people, which was pretty cool. Maybe this week I’ll meet some more. Makin’ frans is fun.
It’s so weird seeing all the orientation kids, on campus. It’s gonna go on for like four more weeks too.
It sounds shitty, but I don’t care about my education right now. I “need,” school to be done with. I just want to work and start up this clothing company. The trouble I have is that school used to be something I wanted to do, but now it’s just become something that feels like it’s dragging me down. I understand that it’s not always going to be easy, but this just isn’t for me right now. I can’t wait for the summer. I feel held down, and that’s not how I want to live.
