Today's the day

Well today( as in later in the day since it's 1 am here) is going to be an eventful day, it'll be filled with a myriad different interactions and events that will sure scar my life for the rest of it in such a way that it just might define who I am as a person, that's right! I'm dropping out of college! Well that's a bit of a white lie.....today I'll drop out of one college and enroll in another one, meaning that march next year I'll be graduating. Well anyways, I'm faced with two options at the moment. Me and my neighbor have sat down and discuss our goals in life, it was a small chat really since we didn't actually have any so we decided, why not join the air force? That's right! I'm enlisting! Well maybe or maybe not but right now it is a darn good possibility, see; ever since I was 15 I wanted to become a video game programmer yet now five years later, I know no languages(programming, I mean) and that goal is somewhat far from this starting point.


So I decided one of two thing, either do this one year degree thing and THEN go study video game programming OR do this one year degree thing AND enlist......or maybe study for a while and then enlist or enlist and then study video game programming.....right now my mind is a bit bitchy so I don't know what the hell I should do. One thing's for sure, I can't deal with theory....I just can't sit 2 hours listening to some teacher giving me a lecture about something I already know. See, the college I was in on is something I like to call a refuge, meaning that it houses people that weren't wanted anywhere else though that is not entirely true, since here on my island(beautiful as though it may be) there's only ONE place where you can study video game design, so that didn't give me a lot of options.


Anyways this was a money pit, meaning that most of the students who attended didn't even go to class and the graduation rate wasn't high and those that did graduate weren't all that knowledgable in their area. SO, I decided to call it quits and try something else for now (learn by practicing, is the new college's motto) so I'm gonna give THIS  a try since I can get certified in a year, plus it's cheaper than where I was going(it's $100 a month if I get the scholarship approved) so anyways, today's the day so, wish me luck!

  3. Good luck :)

    Though members of my family joined the RAF (british air force) I'm quite sceptic of military service, though it can be fun, the bottom line is that you're giving your life to the country (not the people).
