I prefer Technical School over high school by far. Fewer classes, less bull shit, learn what you want to do for the rest of your life. I heard college is hard as ass though, and you have to take requirements like math and english just to get the degree you want, is it?

For general education, yeah, they make you get up to speed with college level writing and stuff (though most GEs I just skipped with AP credit)
After like 3 semesters, classes start focusing more on your major and things get interesting o vo
So usually it's a good idea to go to a cheap community college for a little to mop up general education before transferring to the school you want

Depends on the degree and the college/university
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I may not go to college ever, unless I really need to, so I'll keep that in mind.

Also Smile: He had to go take care of some things before school starts and put me up to the task to get everyone that came in organized, I didn't let him down.

I just....really need some sleep, a lot of sleep. I keep having nightmares at night because I'm stressed about having to get up again.
One more day. Sunday I get off work at 3:30 and then I can sleep in. Tomorrow is gonna be an easy day in master control, compared to today anyway. I've never seen so many satellite records on a weekend. And who the shit scheduled a 3:30 turnaround. I fucked it up because I didn't realize the air date and time was right then and I had two minutes to check and trim the show to the proper length.

So the wrong package aired :/ same show and same episode, but with the wrong commercials at the end of it.

UGH. I know I'm still in training, but I hate making these mistakes. I read the record schedule over like five times and changed my satellite signals, and I didn't notice that air time. I've never seen any show have to be turned around save for Charlie Rose.

*throws things* I'm exhausted and this is annoying. stupid little mistakes.

Smile: Just getting better at enjoying life. I've had a few days off because business is so slow right now. I slept a LOT. I think I'm nearly caught up on some sleep.

Started watching an anime called "No Game No Life" and I think I'm in love with it. I don't love the characters as much as I love the premise. And I relate to the main characters when they say that life is a crappy game. Yup. gonna have to binge watch the shit out of this series. But damnit Stephanie Dola is annoying as fuck. Why does she have to scream everything she says? Anyway the series inspires me to be a better gamer.

annnnd fuck am I on the verge of that. I pulled apart my dad's old desktop and fished out a few pieces. I put aside two paychecks ;w; I'm so close to the best gaming desktop ever. Just gotta go pick up a power supply from my friend's house. <w< EEEE so excite!

but...for today I study for my CTo exam vwv;; once that's over with I can study for my GRE since my GRE books arrived last week.

If I had a couple grand I would build the ultimate gaming computer, probably from Alienware.

Smile: Had an awesome brunch today. LATI just got named one of the top 10 Technical schools in the US for a third time now. Something like they were in the top 10 in 2011, 2012, and 2014 or something like that, so anyway they were giving out free pizza and soda today during lunch hour, and let's just say I ate quite a bit of pizza today.

I need to get my fat ass on the treadmill more though...

My Xanax is unreliable. I must be taking it wrong, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't and some times when it does it takes awhile to kick in.

keep track of the differences and unreliability and make sure to mention it next time
