I'm an ingoing college freshman with the declared major of Music Education. In the next 8 to 10 years I hope to get myself 3 degrees (M. Education, M. Performance, and Jazz Studies), two of which hopefully from UNT.
||College and all sorts of other junk.This post may come across as scattered, pointless, and random. And that's ok.|
Because it is scattered, pointless, and random.
College begins the 21st for me. I'm really excited. I hate living at home (but will live at home this first year anyway... damn...). I am signed up for 16 hours of classes, but will spend 24 hours a week in classes.
I also have marching band camp for the university in about... 6 hours at 8AM. I'll get paid $400 if I stick with it all this semester, and get $100 more aded to that if I continue it consecutively in fall semesters, but my books still cost me $470 the other day.
College is expensive (even for the cheap cheap rate I get to go for), and I hope it's everything I'm expecting and it goes really well this year. My old public school district is getting a new highschool 3 years from now, and my old asst. band director got the director of bands job for it. I've curiously thought about how it would be if I turned out to get an asst. band director job under him at the new school, though I don't really expect it to happen. But it would still be really neat.
College is going to own my life until I'm 28 I think. Wow. Is that good or bad? I'll have a Master's degree, two Bachelors', and possibly a third Bachelor's (M: Music Education, B: Music Performance, Jazz Studies, (B): Italian). It sounds so geeky and lame, but I can't wait to have my own little highschool band. I want to be able to have as positive an effect on other kids' lives that my directors had on mine, and show other people how easy it is to fall in love with non pop-culture music.
I miss my friends that have started getting into drugs and other themes of life I personally consider deconstructive. I think more than that I miss knowing people who aren't into that stuff. It seems like I'll only have about 3 friends in college total that I know aren't into all that sort of stuff. I don't get it...
I had a dream the other night about some random girl that I'm sure I've met before, but don't really remember. She hugged me in the dream, close and tight like a friend doesn't do. Whether the dream was indirect torture to myself or a true dream, it was a dream that felt so real and made me realize just how lonely I feel most of the time in the back of my mind. Sorry, not trying to go all "emo" or "depressed" or whatever on you, just jotting it down.
I really need to clean my room...
And go back to sleep...
Maybe I should write some poetry thing or compose the beginnings of another music project first though...
