one final tomorrow, one final next week, graduation next friday, canada in 2 weeks, hopefully start job day after i get back, find house with fred, move out of here by february...i finally have some plans set up and its pretty satisfying. i went to vegas this week for a few days and spent my time playing nickel slots cause im too afraid of losing precious money that could be spent on food. i came out 8 bucks poorer, but fred lost 50, so i really cant feel so bad. vegas is the most disgusting place, really. no clocks, tinted windows so sunlight cant be let in, ashtrays in bathroom stalls, old ppl with their lil casino cards attached from their chest to machines like a life-line. it was utterly depressing. the liquor was free and watered down, the food was cheap, but there was a reason....just sad. blargh.|
i suppose that when i am 25 with a disposable income, i may enjoy it more, but as a frugal college student, i was appalled by the amounts of money that was thrown away. that was food money, xmas money, money to pay for kids, money to pay for rent...and it was taken more often than not.
...now that school is over, i need to find a hobby. i dont want to be one of those ppl who has an 8 hr job and then does nothing else. i dont want my life to turn into an occupation and watching tv to relax. perhaps i better start playing bass again, there is no reason not to. now that fred is moving in, i have access to amps and everything i would need...i just need to get over my bashful nature.
time to go study for my women's studies final.
