college and why it is important not to blow it

I just realized that I wasted three and a half years on the wrong bachelor's degree. I could have studied ANYTHING I wanted and I chose a BULLSHIT major that came with VERY LITTLE TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE. This makes me very upset.

I want to go back to school. I don't know how all the obnoxious 40 year olds do it because I already feel too old. PLUS I have bachelor's already so who the hell is going to pay for this??

On to write a screenplay. Every film student's answer to depression and hopelessness.

Things my screenplay could be about:
A movie theatre
A dance studio
A band
A group of aimless friends
People graduationg college and wasting their lives
A restaurant
Rich fucking bastards
Nice rich people
Tradition
Cooks
A big manor full of crazy British people
An artistic getaway

I like the last idea... only because I thought of it before now and there's a lot more in my head than those three words. But God forbid the one time I have a decent idea I crap it away by sharing it on the internet! I'm off to a less public word processor.

Yes, you can BUY love

Our band (Friends in Need of) buckled down and bought a "pure-promo" (for $350) and now just because we're on the front page of purevolume.com we get over a thousand plays a day. It kind of makes me sad, but I hope that even when we're taken off we'll still do a hell of a lot better than we had been doing (try 12 plays a day being an exciting high). When we're not on the homepage anymore people will have to go to purevolume.com/friendsinneedof to hear us.

I just realized that I have been claiming unemployment since November 28, 2005 and I have yet to receive a dime from them. Something is wrong.

Best overheard thing today

My brother's girlfriend yelling at him about eating six tacos the night before...
"SIX TACOS? wha-? We're going to be like that couple... That... couple... You're going to be the UPS guy and I'm going to be the hot mama."

In the hole

I owe:

American Educational services...............$16,119.75
Sallie Mae...................................$2,896.84
Bank of America..............................$3,176.93
Capital One..................................$1,809.28
Citibank.......................................$705.00
January's Rent.................................$400.00

$25,107.80

Hey, that's not so bad... that's what most kids come out of college owing, I think. Sometimes even more.

The debts I should pay off ASAP- All credit cards-
$5,691.21

Can anyone loan me $6,000?


Today my blinker finally shorted

Today my blinker finally shorted out the rest of my car. It had, up until this point only fuzzed out the radio when it clicked (left signal only)...but this morning, she was dead.

I'm going to calculate the full amount of debt I owe to everyone as I start out 2006.

Then I am going to inter-library loan a book I saw in Barnes & Nobles called Astro Fit by Dr. William J. Evans.
(don't buy it yet, I haven't read it- it could suck)
