39 Days.

Thirty-nine days.

That's how many I have left until school starts.

I was actually really excited to go until yesterday afternoon when I was told I had to change my major to something different (Business Administration) and take a bunch of classes (Accounting and Business Law, to name a few) that I didn't want.

So, I guess I'll be sticking with Communications. I also found out that I can't do the 4 year school I want through the community college unless I switch my major to English, which I don't want to do. I was really upset all night last night and basically just cried a lot because I thought I wasn't going to get to do what I wanted to do. (Shout out to Bill for dealing with weepy, crying, wailing, me for the night! Love you, pumpkin! ;-* teehee, but srsly, thanks)

And perhaps Human Resources Management isn't for me.

Or maybe I'll get into HR with my Communications degree, who knows. Maybe I'll go into social media or something. I suppose the possibilities are endless.

All I can say is that I am restless to get this started and see if college is or isn't or me. Makes me think of this one Relient K song, "College Kids"

"someone please save us, us college kids!
what my parents told me is what i did
they said go to school and be a college kid
but in the end i question why i did
oh no! not for me, not for me
call it torture, call it university
no! arts and crafts is all i need
i'll take calligraphy and then i'll make a fake degree"

But what if it isn't for me, then what do I do? :/

The End of Passionfruit

Today's post is mostly for other bloggers out there that read my posts, but feel free to read along if you desire.

Bloggers, what are we to do?

Starting September 1st, Passionfruit is no longer free (for swaps, or anything else, for that matter).

Are you going to pay the $9 monthly fee, or are you going to use a different method for ads? Is there even anything else out there? Has anyone thought about this? Or do we go back to the archaic means of constantly adding and removing code from our pages? I honestly don't have the time for that anymore, and that's why I loved Passionfruit. These ads have brought great traffic to my blog, and I'm sure others' ads on my site have brought them traffic.

There are tons of lovely ladies and gents in the blogosphere, and I would hate for people to stop being discovered because Passionfruit wants to start charging.

Yes, the new features are nice, but for me, it's just not worth it.

Tumbleweeds Everywhere

Wow, there sure are a lot of tumbleweeds all over this blog... I have barely been here at all since my birthday. I promise you this wasn't intentional. This post has been coming for a while, so here goes.

See, when I started this little baby of a blog, I had little to do all day. I would sit at home and do nothing, save from cleaning a room here and there, and the prep and cook of dinner. I needed something else to fill my time, but books and spending lots of mind-numbing hours on the internet weren't doing anything for me anymore.
