Anyway, I think I'm going to make a habit of organising my posts like this.
My real life issues continue. Now I'm not sure if I want to pick up a second major in English or print journalism. It's just... gah. Both majors have their pros and cons. I feel like English won't lead me down a definitive career path (or give me much support if I should apply for an entertainment-related internship in the future), and I'm not really fond of a lot of the required classes. However, I know that English majors develop certain skills (critical reading, reasoning, analytical writing, etc.) that can be applied to a wide variety of fields. As for print journalism, I've never taken a journalism class and the application is a bitch, so I'm not sure if it's worth the risk. Plus the job market for journalism majors isn't exactly booming, even considering all the connections within the Trojan family. If I do decide to pursue a career in journalistic writing, I'm sure an English degree and a position on my school's newspaper (which I hope to secure next semester) will be sufficient.
I would really, really love to do something related to advertising and communication design, but USC only offers minors in those areas, and I don't want a double minor. I would also fail miserably at the marketing/business (econ? what? see, I don't even know what it's called) side of advertising. I know for sure that I'm not going to do anything related to psychology (but I might as well keep the major, since I only have a few more classes to go before I'm done with it), so I sort of need a second degree. At the same time, I can't afford to delay my graduation, because my scholarship only covers four years of tuition. I feel like I'm running out of time. I need to make a decision soon, but I have no idea what to do. It's driving me crazy. *stresses*
I knew I shouldn't have, but I couldn't resist. I had to go and Wikipedia Loveless ;_; Doing that made me realise that I never finished reading the manga because not all the volumes were translated during my anime/manga phase, which then led me to go find and download scanlations :( Now, instead of going out and enjoying the sunny, 80 degree weather, I'm going to spend the rest of the day sitting in bed, reading through all eight volumes of Loveless. AND IT WON'T STOP THERE. Because I know that once I'm finished with Loveless, I'll be tempted to go reread Furuba, and then rewatch Fushigi Yuugi, Gravitation, SAILOR FREAKING MOON, etc. This is bad. I don't have time to get back into anime. I should be spending the leisure time I do have on reading the hd_worldcup fics.
Addictions die hard :(
(Speaking of addictions, I really want to rewatch QaF. But... I know that will DESTROY my GPA, so I'll wait until summer.)
I saw an advance screening of Forgetting Sarah Marshall on campus last night. It was so adorable, and of course, absolutely hilarious. It was great seeing members of Judd Apatow's cast back (Paul Rudd ♥ and I think I might prefer Jason Segel over Seth Rogan now), as well as a few new faces (Mila Kunis is GORGEOUS). Judd Apatow has a very special place in my heart, both because he makes kickass movies and because he went to my school :D
A student at NYU wants to interview me about HP fanfiction. More specifically, D/Hr fanfiction. I'm both amused and apprehensive. I'm not sure how I feel about discussing D/Hr. It's been so long since I even thought about it that I might say something incredibly stupid. Chances are I'll start referring to Hermione as Harry and fuck up the whole thing. Then again, I love being interviewed about fanfiction, so I might as well do it.
I'm finished with chapter 19 of SKOM! I'll post chapter 18 later today :)
As always, the obligatory advertisements:
ldws has a full roster! Yay! I'm so excited to start posting challenges. avada_k and I were coming up with some the other day, but now it looks like we'll need to think of more, because neither of us expected to fill all twenty spots.
And the hd_worldcup art posts for today are incredible. ARTISTS, YOU'RE MADE OF WIN ♥
*goes back to reading Loveless*
(LOL @ this line:
Yuiko: Ritsuka-kun is going out with a university student?
Soubi: No, we're not going out. We have a master/slave relationship.
I'm way too easily amused.)
