And tomorrow my father and I are headed down to Kalamazoo to set my classes for the next year or so. Oh, and we're supposed to talk to my financial agent to figure out hot the hell I'm supposed to pay for K-Zoo. Our best option ends with my entire college tuition being paid for by Tom Cruise. no, I'm not joking. Sad isn't it?|
Normally I'd be looking forward to the road trip, but it is my last day off before I head down state for a week. That I'm looking forward to. The wasted day-off to talk to college guidance people, not so much.
I really don't want to think about it, but college starts in about three and a half weeks for me, give or take. It's a frightening thought to leave behind everything I know and move onto new things. I guess it's okay though, there's still so much about Manistee I don't know, and so many people I've failed to befriend that it seems like this place is as strange to me as Kalamazoo ever could be. It always throws me off to look back on the people I run into and say, I could have been that person's friend. So much could have been different all these years. It always makes me wonder if I've done something wrong, or if I could have done something better with my time. But that is all for later.
Today my dad and I sat around and watched Dogma and V for Vendetta. He loved V more than I thought he would. I knew he'd like it, but I didn't think he'd like it that much. He always enjoys the crazy anarchist messages in pop-culture. It gives him hope to think that the youth of America can be concerned with more than just the money in their wallets and the price of their clothing. I guess it gives me hope too, but I still wonder how many people see it as political commentary over an action/adventure movie. The world may never know.
And if you need my while I'm in K-Zoo, 233-3926.
