though in europe i'd only agree to send texts from my own network, as using your phone roaming and long distance in another country will kill your minutes quickly (thanks, munich! left me with no outgoing calls for 3 weeks in vienna)

That's it! That was awesome.

Yeah, when I say that I was the source, it was for the set list itself, not for audio or anything like that.

Apparently! Though as I keep pointing out, my post explosion on Interference has occurred at exactly the same time as I've found myself with the most healthy, active social life I've ever had. On Friday, I had dinner and drinks with four people, then on Saturday had dinner and U2 3D with three completely different people. I honestly cannot tell you when I would have last been able to do that; certainly never in my nearly 11 years in Australia. At any one time, my circle of friends in high school had only about four people who I ever actually hung out with outside of school.

Grad schools care, employers don't.

Yeah, grad schools care less and less the more you have some real world experience. You have such a glowing resume, though, as it pertains to out of school experience that your GPA is moot.

well probably not moot, but if i can build it like i want, and i get 5 years out of college, they'll probably overlook it. and i honestly cannot imagine going to school for almost 5 years anyway. plus i might want some time in europe to establish residency so that i can get local tuition rates and save 10k pounds.

It will be moot in 5 years depending on the school.
