the end is in sight!

Today after classes, I met with my advisor. She always says it won't take very long, but then we always end up, like today, chatting in her office for an hour and a half ^^;.

The first half hour was devoted to figuring out how much longer it should be until I graduate... approximately 2 years if I take about 12 hours a semester, but hah, there's no way I'd do that XD;. So hopefully it'll only be a year and a half maybe, if I keep on tackling 16 or more hours a semester? It's comforting to have a goal in sight, though ^_^. I do enjoy learning and such, but I don't want it to go on forever and ever either. *marches on toward the future*

After that was figured out, my advisor interviewed me for a paper she's writing for a conference in New York. It's about conservative/religious students in college, and she interviewed me as a used-to-be religious conservative turned agnostic not-really religious type person. I just basically talked about my childhood being raised in a Southern Baptist church, and how I lost sleep for many years over the idea of rapture ^^;. Talking about that was a bit mortifying, but I was glad that someone I looked up to listened, and didn't accuse me of being a hellion for my current stance on things XD;. I don't think I could get that at home. After we talked about that, she told me my paper on the rapture, and my obvious anger/uncomfort toward the subject, that I wrote during my second semester of college is what vaguely inspired her to write this paper XD;. I need to read that again paper again-- I remember it was pretty awful ^^;. That was an interesting experience today, though... Someone actually wanted to hear my opinion for something semi-important, which was nice ^^. My coherence isn't always there, but I managed to not make a total jackass of myself ^^;.

CSI is on, so I'll go be shocked whilst watching it. That show's so scary and gross sometimes, but I'm pretty awesome at closing my eyes really quick when I hear squishy noises XD;. I DON'T WANT TO SEE A BULLET TRAVEL THROUGH SOMEONE'S BRAIN! or whatever. But it's still interesting to watch ^^.

Do you know what school you're transfering to yet o.o? That must be hard-- trying to figure out if all your credits will transfer and stuff >.>;. Do your best! University life isn't as bad as it seems, I promise ^^. I've been living in this weird university colony for 3 years now XD;.

I'm planning to transfer to UCLA but it might be difficult'ish to get into since there are a lot of English majors going there. @_@ *will do her best though!* If not I can always try another school. *nodnod*

I feel like UCLA is one of those colleges I should know about... isn't it really, really famous o.o? I didn't give hardly any thought at all to the college I picked, so I didn't go looking up the famous ones or anything, so I'm horribly ill-knowledged XD;.

I feel that I should give some thought on which college to attend, but I really... don't care. XD I just picked UCLA because it's close and famous'y.

Don't worry, I didn't give any thought to which university I picked either XD. Other than it was the cheapest, hooray! Sounds perfect to me XD.

The most famous college I'm nearest to is... I'm not near any famous colleges ^^;. Maybe Washu is St. Louis, that one's pretty highly revered, but that's 5 hours away ^^;. And yeah, don't forget the $50,000 per semester cost. Omg, that's like... the cost of 6 of my semesters XD;. HELEN! UNIVERSITY PRICES ARE SCARY!

That was part of the reason why I went to community college than university. OMG the cost. XD;;

I guess I just got lucky that I live near one of the cheapest Universities in my state XD;. As long as "university" is in the title of where you went, it's more credible to future employers and such, no matter how cheap it was in comparison to the rest ^^;.

That I know. Though UCs (Universities of California) are more... reputable than just regular CSUs (California State Universities) here. I don't know why. XD;; Well I do. But still. *confuzzled*
