Why a month?

Why not two, three, even four? I thought I month would be enough to set me at rest with everything related to school; turned out it wasn't.

I still have essays to finish; grades to be worried about; exams on which I must get excellent grades; homework that I must do on a daily basis. Being a geek can really suck sometimes.

And when a geek like me doesn't want to go back to school, you can be sure that something is very, very wrong.

"- I have to go to college.
- Why?
- Because it's what you do after high school.
- Shaun and Cindy, Orange County.

Sometimes I ask myself whether things would be better if that was the only reason I had to go college; if I simply didn't care about it. But thoughts like those last for only a moment; a second later I'm already thinking about how amazing logarithms are and how brilliant were the Romans. Thirst for knowledge is what keeps me going, and I thank whoever is up there that I was born like this.

Need college right now, more than I ever. I'm tired, honestly tired of high school; I can't go back; a month was not enough... simply not enough.

"- Why a month?
- Because it's long enough to be meaningful, but short enough to stay out of trouble."
- Nelson and Sara, Sweet November.

July was weird; bizarre; mind-boggling... but a good month, a very good month. I sincerely thank all of those that were with me during it; that made me laugh, have fun and forget what I was going back to and just how short a month can be.


Wake me up when November ends.

And so it is...

lu: (Going crazy.)
The last two weeks like Christy said a while ago seemed to be composed exclusively by Thursdays. And I definitely never could get the hang of Thursdays.

It's been a while since I've last posted and I'm glad to say that my lungs are still inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide.

I've been extremely emo and stressed lately; with a lot of big and little problems that mix together that make me break down over the tiniest things. So, if I was for any reason stupid, rude or seemed distant, I apologize. I think that I'll only be myself again once classes are over (which will be a very heavy weight lifted off by back).

About school: Managed to make what was due today even though I've barely slept in order to do so. Still have a lot of other stuff, though. At least Caesar postponed his essay. But my stupid History teacher told us to make an essay on Christianity. Not as big as the Neo-liberalism one, but still. ¬¬

-> Philosophy essay on the Scientific Revolution (27/06).
-> History of Art essay on Christian art (28/06).
-> Study for Biology exam (22/06).
-> Study for French exam (23/06).
-> History essay on Christianity (30/06).
-> Logs exercises (25/06).

*sighs* I'll live. Hopefully.

Have you ever been really thirsty, and you open a carton of milk and you pour it into your mouth and it's... sour? - Mary Bradford, Lost and Delirious.

Really do hope that I won't have to complete that sentence.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
