Sweet! You're getting close to the fun part. College was a blast. Where are you applying?

My first choice is University of Chicago, but I'm also applying to The Ohio State, U of I, and Indiana U. I can't wait to be in college; enough of this high school crap already!

Chicago could be fun. I've only been to Chicago once, but I really liked it. I applied to OSU, but only as a safety, 'cause I live in Columbus and would have found it super boring commuting to a school ten miles from my house. I wanted to go somewhere else. You've got to live in dorms at least once. I can honestly say that I disliked 5 of the 8 people I lived with over my years in campus housing (of course, two of them were crazy, one quite literally certifiably so...) but it was still one of the best experiences I've ever had.  Grin

I enlisted in the US Army today! I ship to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, but not until March 16, 2011. That part kind of sucks, but whatever... I get a super long summer/fall/winter break, right? I've signed for Signals Support Systems Specialist, at the rather redundant rank of Specialist, which is the same rank as a Corporal, except that they never expect me to shoot at anyone. But yeah... I'm excited.  Cheesy

Awesome! Good luck with basic. It takes a certain kind of person to willingly go through all that hardship and come out stronger. I admire that and I wish you the best. Smiley

I'm still around! If anyone remembers me that is Sad

Its been while but life has been a huge storm. And this storm I weathered and came out stronger Smiley  2 weeks ago I took the biggest step in my life and got a job at a call center doing tech support. Its been a new experience as I have not worked in 3 years..nor did I think I had the strength to do such a thing. I did it all on my own..people had finally learned to stop pushing me..If pushed I go the oposite way haha. <--okay thats not really funny but oh well!

Anyways I read the books again recently in my downtime between work. took me WAAYYY longer then it used to to read it because the training at work is INTENSE and we havent even started taking calls yet! Its a lot of sitting staring at comps and reading mindnumblingly boring and repetitive crap..It feels like brainwashing lol (and yes I am the ONLY girl in a class of 23 people that are in the training for the tech support job.) I so wish I could tell you guys what i'm gonna be supporting but i'm under an NDA T_T
 I forgot how much I loved these books Smiley

And those two quotes I love still stick with me.  The biggest one though for me right now could not apply more "Listen to your future not your past"  (Oddly enough my father said something very similar to that line to me the other day..He told me that its not my past that matters its what I choose to do with my future, and the things I want, and thats what I need to look at. Not the things I've done wrong in the past but the things I will do right in the many years i sitll have of my life)

I've finally let my past go, and i'm finally looking at my future.  And I have finally figured out where I belong and what I want from life..It only took me 6 years to realize this and grow up.

And now that i've bored you to tears! back to reading through posts here to see what i've missed!

Hey there, Zodiac! Good to see you around again! I'm really glad that things are going well in your life. I know you've had it rough for a while. Better to have taken 6 years to figure out what you want from life than a lifetime, or never. Congrats on getting a job! Smiley

As for me, I'm quite tired of school. I absolutely hate it, and I want to take a year off after I graduate and apply to a Gap Year program where I can travel abroad to a country or around the world for a year. I've applied to all the colleges I planned on applying to and already got accepted into one, but I can't stand the thought of going right into college out of high school. This has been a major source of anxiety for me because my parents are pretty adamant about me going from one to the other like most people so I "don't lose momentum", as my dad likes to put it. But I need time to think for myself, to learn on my own, to explore. I can't do that in school, no matter how relaxed or accommodating the college is. So I have to find a way to convince them that I know what's best for me better than they do.

Hi Zodiac_Kitten (or is just Zodiac okay? .___.)! I don't know you (I think I've seen some of your post in the old forum, while stalking it?) but it's nice to meet a new person. ^_^v

@Andtheodyssey: Travelling around the world? *___* How awesome.

It's so cold here. ;O; I have nothing against winter...but... there wasn't that much snow in the beginning of december since I was little. But it's funny how everyone is like "Snow... in winter? NO WAY!". It's total chaos. ^^;

@Aziraphale: I'm a restless wandering soul, to put it poetically. Wink

Regarding snow, it's kinda the opposite over here: "Where's the snow? It should be here by now..."

Well, okay, that's what I say. Though it's supposed to snow tonight, with more substantial accumulations than the flurries earlier this week.

We also have more than enough of it. But I don't get it either, we are an alpine country in the middle of Europe and it is snowing in Winter. What's the big deal? If it isn't snowing in December everybody goes "Wah, no snow, we'll go down as a winter sports country!".
OK, I have it easy, living in the city and not needing a car to get to work.
