So yeah. I’ve been having anxiety problems. I need to learn to calm down. Actually went to counselor, basically said I have anxiety problems. So I’ll try to be less critical of myself, and just do everything.
I assessed what I got out of the blog last time, and just started working. I’ve been doing three sections of calculus per day, and reviewing prior material. I’m done with college applications. Things are fairly good. Except for SC2. I’m sucking.
I’m getting more fit, doing exercise Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Starting Strength, back pain is getting better, and just feeling generally much better.
I have to say actually doing shit is helpful for making progress. Thank you Chill for being so blunt XD
Something that sort has been bugging me is college major. I have real interests in international affairs, but career there is meh. I’ve already submitted applications for computer science, so I’m not going to change anything. (I can’t XD) but I was trying to figure out the approximate cost of travel on the cheap. I know that one can travel for super cheap. My parents and I travel “cheap” but we still stay in hotels, blah blah. I really want to do some serious cheap travel, see what the locals look like, and just move around. Mostly Europe and Asia, I frankly don’t want to go to Africa, and South America would be last priority. For those of you who have done it how much did it cost? What was it like. Any general tips?
Mostly I just decided to apply under computer science, but I really need to look into IR job opportunities. I think it’s something I could do relatively well in, but it’s not exactly a lucrative field. But should that even matter? Anybody have experience with USA foreign service?
Lastly, I just played a somewhat epic hour thirty pvz. I shoulda won but was stupid. But whatever ;( http://drop.sc/81428
I did some korean cooking, I'm not sure how authentic it was. It was out of a Frugal Gourmet cookbook, but I got bored. Food pics coming up tomorrow !
And second semester it is indeed time to learn korean. Finally ordered book from amazon, and made contact with potential tutor.. Things are looking up.
