Yes, it seems Summer's ending. ~sigh. It's not as much fun as when you're younger. If you want to go on an out-of-the-city vacation, you have to pay for it. And that ain't cheap. I'm now working full-time, and I need that money for the year. I don't pay rent or anything, but I still need money!
As for me-- I'm OK! Work takes almost all my time now, which doesn't do anything for my social life, but the money's good. I've been seeing my friends a lot more in the last week, which is also good. Tomorrow night I go to Second City with a friend-- my birthday present from last February! I still have work during the day, though. Come labour day, I'll only work Sundays. But then school starts!
I'm not ready to go back to school! I can't believe it's almost September... Of course, I say that every year. It's amazing how fast summer goes... I guess I'm excited to go back, but I don't want to climb out of lazy mode...
Also, there's something else that I'm thinking about. One of my non-academic goals this year is to meet some more gay people... Try to get out of the closet more, as well. I want to speak to one of my friends, who happens to be queer, to see if she can help me get involved with our campus TBLG group. I think she's involved with them... I admit I'm quite nervous about that. It'll be weird joining a campus club based solely on sexual preference. Yet, it's something I think I have to do. Any thoughts on that/ experiences you'd like to share?
I think that kind of step would also be a good step towards meeting a boyfriend. I thought after school started I would have more time to dedicate to that sort of goal. Yet, I still wasn't sure where to look... so that pursuit never seriously left the ground, with the exception of my foray into my city's Pride fest.
I don't have much else to say... except for the fact that I hate the city by-law that says you can't park on city streets between 2 AM - 6AM! I went to a party, and there was no room to park in the driveway. So, I parked on the host's quiet, suburban crescent. In the morning I leave... and I see that at 3:15 AM, a parking officer left a $30 fine on my windshield! What the hell?!?!!? I'm trying to figure out how I can fight it... at least try to get the fine reduced. If you ask me, that kind of fine is the equivalent to chopping off the hands and feet of a shoplifter. They're treating me like a cash cow, and I hate it. The punishment doesn't fit the offense, dammit! End rant. Grrrr...
Thanks for reading. You guys are awesome!
I wish you all the best,
