Ha. I usually listen to music through my headphones, and if I am using my speakers, I almost never play death metal through them. So at least it doesn't sound like hell's coming out of my place. And I don't do death vocals myself ... much ...

sorry, i probably sound really dramatic. i'm just stressed to the top, sick and in pain, exhausted, and in a euphoric/mourning phase for the class and era i just finished
At least you've got your immediate future somewhat planned out, from the sound of it.

I remember when I finished, my first thought was, what the fuck do I do now?

I can do that sound at the start of Wire. It's fun. Sounds demented, but fun.

my very real problem right now is IF i finish. I am more sure than not sure that I will, not with grades up to my potential for my outstanding work, but while this summer and next year are planned, my fucking graduation isn't certain

I've got to admit I am so grateful I'm going on to do Honours and postgrad. If I were finishing in a little over a semester like most people in my year will be, I'd be thinking exactly what you thought.

Why isn't your graduation certain?

I was a history major and poli sci minor, mostly because those things interested me the most. It wasn't until it was too late that I realized there wasn't much for me to do with that background unless I wanted to be a teacher or get into politics.

So I decided to work in a music store instead and get free CDs...

because like i said, this place gives you enough rope to hang yourself with, and i have made the noose: i have an extemely overdue senior requirement for my major, plus an incomplete from my injury sophomore year to write the final paper for, plus my thesis which is very much in need of 75 more pages.

and i have 2 weeks. 1 week of finals and 1 week for honors exams, where i'm not honors but i'll still be working

the good news is i can write 2-3 pages an hour, more if pressed, less if i need to do lots of research.

Oh, that sort of thing is just too fun. I sing along with most instruments.

The intro of PT's Piano Lessons is one of the best. Do-do DOO, d'do-do DOO ...

Haha, almost exactly my stuff too. I'm majoring in both History and PolSci. I'm honestly tired of PolSci, but I'm so close to getting the major that I might as well. I'll be doing just History for Honours next year. I just keep hoping desperately that I'm not delusional and can make an academic career out of it.

on june 2 i will hopefully be giddily laughing at this
