A while back I went through and numbered my days in my personal calendar. I counted them, one by one, leading up to the day that I can finally start living the life I want to live. Three weeks from tomorrow I will be drawing my retail career to a close and beginning my scholastic endeavors once again.
I came down with a stomach flu this last weekend and after being harassed and interrogated about the legitimacy of my illness, a wave of joy came over me. I know that I won't have to do this for much longer. I know that the end is just in reach, I feel like I can even smell it.
I haven't even started my classes yet, but there are so many more opportunities presenting to me that I'm almost overwhelmed. Starting at the beginning of the school year, I will be taking on the duties of a radio DJ for the campus radio station. When I have more information I will be sure to post links so my few faithful readers can listen in when my show goes to air.
The week before school starts holds several events designed to welcome students, give existing students information about various departments, employers on campus get the opportunity to meet with students and seek help for the school year, and so forth. These kinds of meetings and job fairs and information booths give students like me, who have no idea what the campus in its entirety has to offer, a chance to really see that and get a grasp on it.
Oh, and what else? Part of their 'welcome wagon' to new students is a Disney princess Drag Show. I would say that I wish I was kidding...but I'm totally not.
I just thank my lucky stars these days that I actually found in me the ambition to embark on this journey once again. They say that life is all about timing, about a series of moments that enable you to make sense of your decisions. I feel like I can finally make sense of that.
As a side note--
I re-listed my zines on my etsy store. You can check it out by clicking the 'zine store' button on the right hand side of the page.
