|Jan. 2nd, 2007 02:12 pm Annoying dreams... won't leave me alone|
I was dreaming an odd, improbable dream. It wasn't about me, it was actually just like I was watching a strange movie. It started out with a man in his mid fourties, staring into the camera with blazing green eyes, that looked almost mechanical in some respects. He was ranting about something or another and then turns from the camera and goes about working on parts of the futuristic ship that he's on, all the while ranting and raving about some childhood friend. Somehow, the point is driven across that this friend has recently died.
At the funeral, the disheveled main character approaches the casket with sincerity, and is given a wide berth by the more traditional and probably saner mourners. No one is offended by his precese, but more like indulging, smiling behind their hands. Then, behind the casket for some reason is a long table, with people sitting at it, with bottles of liquor spaced evenly down the legnth of the table. On an impulse, he grabs the one directly in front of him and takes a few swigs. Then like a man with a purpose, he sidles to his right and drinks from the next, and then the next, and then the next. The people behind the table overcome their initial shock and begin laughing. Encouraged, he smiles and moves on, playing to the crowd now.
I am lying on my side, with my head in a girl's lap, who I know. She bends over me and lightly kisses my temple.
I wake up, stunned.
Where the hell did that come from? I haven't talked to her in almost a month, she rarely gives me the time of day, the only time I've even thought of her since break has been when I see she updated her facebook profile, and that was at least a week ago. Once again... what the hell?

Somewhere between failing 3 of 5 classes and having an overwhelming desire to write something and not having the time to do so, I've made my decision. Now I will be switching gears entirely to English and probably a language minor or two. I'll almost definitely do Spanish, and I'm thinking I might thoroughly enjoy another language as well. But that will come later, fist is all the paper work to be done with to get me the hell out of engineering.

|Nov. 7th, 2006 03:32 pm Engineering reconsidered|
Once again, I am debating whether or not I want to continue with engineering. I absolutely abhor the subject matter, and the more I get into it, the more I think that I would probably hate doing engineering for a living. Unless I got that dream job, which I feel is increasingly unlikely, I would hate my job. I've been thinking of doing something completely unrelated, because frankly, I'e had enough of math and science to last me a lifetime. I used to find some of it interesting... now it all just makes me cringe. The only motivation I have to go to class, pay attention, do my homework, and study, is for a grade. For a letter and a number. It's not enough.
And maybe something else is appealing to me because I don't have to deal with it right now. But I honestly think I would be better able to handle bullshit from classes in another subject. It's not a decision I can make lightly, to just abandon what I've done for the past year and a half.

Next semester is going to destroy me and my GPA to boot. I will have 8:00ams every day of the week. In circuits and fluids no less... classes I'm less than looking forward to. As if they weren't hard enough, I'm going to have to fight to attend every single day. I only went to half my 8am lectures last semester and it was a class I liked and had an interest in. I had to drop Dynamics this semester because I never could get myself to go to class and so, was failing. Hell, I'm failing my Stat class right now because it's a 9:00am. That needs to change, and I'm working on it. Hopefully I'll not be so damn night-owlish come January, otherwise I'm screwed.

|Oct. 13th, 2006 02:02 pm She's on my mind|
Apparently my subconcious is obsessing over this girl. The past three nights I've actually remembered my dreams when I woke up, which is a rarity for me, and all three times they were about her. Nothing really significant, but just me spending time with her. In the last one she was even asked if we were going out and said we weren't. I don't know if that's my acceptance of it or what. I asked her to formals and she said she couldn't, and I haven't talked to her since, and haven't even thought about her except the past three mornings when I get up after dreaming about her. I thought I was long done sort of mooning over this girl.
