Today is Thursday

And I have the day off, so I've been doing laundry, and cleaning my room.

Just when I was starting to enjoy the earlier shifts at work, everything has to go and get ruined. I work the shittiest shifts all weekend, boohoo. I hate slicing bread, and I HATE running back and forth between the bakery and back cooler with racks, and of course because it's the weekend, shit is going to be busier so I'll have more bread to slice, and more racks to take back.
BOOHOOHOOHOOHOO. I mostly don't like slicing bread because it's so monotonous that my mind wanders for a good two or three hours, and it's just not a good feeling, letting my mind wander. As well, I get bread crumbs in my hair, and that's gross.

In other news...

I've officially passed my two courses, which means I graduate!! Unfortunately (for my mom at least), my plans were to leave for Calgary with Jill on the second, and my grad ceremony is on the fourth, now this wouldn't be a big deal at all, as I can come home from Calgary and pick up my diploma, but my mom is hell-bent on seeing me cross the stage, though at this point I haven't RSVP'd and my units would have to watch via closed circuit television in a classroom. I just don't see this as a big deal in my life, if anything, going to douglas was a huge 2.5 year inconvenience. I am so incredibly glad to be out of that school, so glad in fact, that I don't even care that I'll have to take highschool courses at night to upgrade my sciences so I can get into a real school... which is another issue.
Do I want to risk taking out a student loan so I can go to school in Calgary, or stay at home, live for free, and work my BUTT off so I can afford to pay my way through SFU?

PROS of going to school in calgary:
- better science program (I mean hello, I'm taking geology, no better place than the oil province of Canada)
- independence
- a chance to actually meet new people because I would have to if I wanted to survive

CONS of going to school in calgary:
- student loan I'd eventually have to pay off
- working to live (can't afford that dorm shit either way)
- I would get lonely

PROS of going to school in BC:
- live at home for free
- 20 minute commute if I go to SFU
- easier to deal with transfers
- friends

CONS of going to school in BC:
- working my butt off to afford 2-3k a semester
- finding a job that will pay me a sufficient amount, and needs to be flexible with schedules (good luck)
- program is decent
- it's almost too close to home

fudge, maybe I'll just go to UVIC, that way I still get independence, while being further from home. IDKIDKIDKIDK.
