A Solitary Mine

Strive

I’m gonna quit this job, go to school, and head back home

Requested letters of recommendation from two people at work today (not direct superiors). Continued e-mail correspondence with CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services @ Cornell) and A&S (Arts & Sciences). They apparently had a power outage this afternoon, which cut that short. I hope my transcript was mailed out. I pulled up some course listings; I need to find out what I need to take and how I can take it to be on track to graduate. There is also financial aid to consider. I don't know when I'll do all of this. My head needs a rest.

Don't get angry with yourself

You can't say no to hope
You can't say no to happiness
It doesn't scare me at all


But I'll do it. I'll draft the letters this weekend and try to put together a course schedule. I have all weekend for that. Then I have Monday and Tuesday to package everything and try to pass the committee's judgement.

There's more to life than this

I want to get my father's drums from Pittsburgh, and I want to learn to play them. I want to learn to rock out like my t-shirt says. I want to establish a fitness regime incorporating yoga and a resumption of archery (which I will definitely take again if I can fit it in at Cornell). I spent 3 hours at the gym last night. I can do this. And I will do this.
