Change My Life Blogaday - Day Three

2:51 AM - Yeah, that's no good.

But I'll explain, oh, I'll explain for sure. I woke up a little after 11 today, and that's no excuse. Calculus took me a lot longer than I expected tonight, and I got pretty hyper and joked around with my roommates from 12 to 1.

So, yeah. I failed hardcore at going to bed by twelve tonight. I don't have all of my homework done for tomorrow, but I think I can make it work. I'm sluffing physics tomorrow to take care of an essay I need to write. I know, I know, sluffing is bad, but I don't get much out of those lectures anyways.

So, yeah, bad news on the bed time tonight. But I don't feel too bad about it. I still have a goal, but I realize that I can't really jump on that goal immediately and expect awesome success right away. I want to get there, I really do. But I know that I'll have to work towards it. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I don't have classes till noon. That means I can theoretically sleep till 11:30. Since it doesn't matter if I'm 20 minutes late to that class anyways... Moral of the story: if I'm going to make it to bed by midnight, I need to get up long before 11 to have any chance at it. I need to take this fight to both sides of the party.

Some good stuff has happened today, and I'm happy about that.

I'm meeting with an advisor tomorrow, and I'm incredibly excited about that. Technically I have an academic advisor in the engineering department because I'm declared as a mechanical engineering major, but since I'm changing that, I'm meeting with an undeclared advisor tomorrow. I'm totally going to undeclare, and I'm really excited about it. I'm going to be such a statistic.

But I was looking a bit closer at the education thing tonight, and I'm really liking the way it looks. It seems to- I don't know, so smooth. Their website kicks the crap out of the engineering one. The words on the site though, what they say, it's just on such a higher level for me.

Maybe it's just contrast, but it looks pretty smooth, alright?

So I think that's mostly what me and my advisor will talk about tomorrow. My tentative plan for now is to undeclare and take care of the general university studies, go on a mission, come back and apply for the secondary education degree, doing the composite with whatever it is I decide to teach. Right now it's looking like math or science. That's a giant surprise. I might have to get a degree in math education or chem education or physics education with an education minor, I'm not quite sure how it'll all work out.

Either way, it's something that I'm really digging right now. And it looks like I can make it work. It looks like the next few years of my life could actually be pretty dang cool. The department looks solid.

So there's a lot more research to be done, but I'm loving the preliminary looks. It's 3 AM though, and I'm hoping to wake up a little early tomorrow so I can get some stuff printed off and do a bit more reading before I meet with my advisor.

So, goodnight friends. I'm really glad you're out there. Things in the Logan are looking up, and that's awesome. I hope that you're all doing well. We're going to have a party one of these days. Keep rockin' on friends- goodnight!

Way to be chris, I'm glad that you're warming up to this thing that we do. Teaching is definitely your forte, that's for sure.
