After the last blog, I figured that I would write one long rational appeal to my parents about responsibilities, and about college, etc. I did so. I wrote it a couple early mornings ago. I asked for a few small changes. A little more patience in giving me time to put away dishes. More rational repercussions for forgetting a piece of clothing or two. Just the small stuff. A little forgiveness on the lies I told 3-4 years ago. And initially my mom was really mad. She started yelling at me at night, woke up my dad, it was all bad. But as the argument went longer and longer, she ran out of things to say, other than “you are irresponsible” She said that I just didn’t do the little things right. That I was always screwing them up. So in one of the strange things is I said “why don’t you give me definite increases in responsibility, if you keep track of all the things I need to do on a spreadsheet and I follow through with them.
1. Put away laundry
2. set table ahead of time
3. put away trash cans by 6:00 in the evening
4. mow lawn once every two weeks, edge once a month
Lolwut. I have no problem with doing this. I rarely make mistakes, they have little impact, and whatever. But now I am keeping track of this. And if for a month I make very few mistakes the computer moves to my room, I can eat out, and internet stays on until 1am. Which is fine. I need at least 6 hours of sleep >.> I don’t understand this sudden change in policy, but I am not going to argue.
Right now I feel like www.nyan.cat !!
Oh, and I can come home from school now. Which means winter shin ramen = feasible. Need to figure out what to do for lunch currently though. Do any of you guys have any ideas for summer lunches that can be pre-made and either packed or stored in a fridge. (My house is a 6 minute walk from school, so it’s not like I’m going way out of the way)
College: I would like to do something finance related. Does anyone have experience with a finance related degree, job, or otherwise. Is anybody trying to find a job. Is anybody an alumni of a school they would thing to be excellent for this?
Right now I'm applying to Stanford UCLA UCB, UCI, USC, and U Chicago. Maybe not all for business. Maybe some for econ. Maybe some for compsci...
Oh well time to quickly memorize some graphs and limit rules for a quiz in Calc BC tomorrow tt
