Our dirt bikes bring all the boys to the yard. Damn right, they're better than yours.

Schoooooool's out for, uh, an indefinite period of time

That's right: short of two finals and one 5000-word paper, I am officially finished my undergraduate degree. And let me tell you, friends, after one of the worst years of my life filled with the joys of being a full-time student, writing a thesis, and helplessly watching all my friends leave for Toronto one by one, it feels glorious. But what feels even better is having time to post on this blog. (Okay, I'm totally lying. This blog sucks.)

Still, though, I'd be feeling a lot better if I had some sense of what the hell I'm going to do with myself after this summer. Sure, I got a fantastic job (I won't say who I'm working for here so I have leeway to bitch later on, but I'm sure most of you know by now anyway), but the problem with summer internships is that, well, they're only for the summer. I've applied to Columbia, but it's very dubious whether I'll get in, and Carleton, where I'm not sure I really want to go. I decided to skip Ryerson, since they're planning on turning their two-year BJ (heh heh) program into an MJ in 2007, so I figured I might as well wait if that's what I want to do. The downside of this (or possibly the upside, if you're Neal) is that I most likely won't be living in Toronto next year, unless I can miraculously find a job good enough to move across the country for. So what then? Stay in Edmonton, God forbid, and work? But where? I'm thinking it would be cool to go somewhere French for a few months and come back fluent, but Paris is expensive and Quebec, well, isn't Paris. In conclusion: I hate uncertainty, and I want someone to make these decisions for me so I don't have to worry about them anymore.

Also, unofficially, my parents are moving to Kelowna permanently in July (I can't say why just yet—ask Chris if you care), which means I'm going to have to start, like, doing my own laundry and stuff. Even worse, I won't have much of a reason to ever come back to Edmonton again once I leave (sure, there are people here who I still want to see, but there's not that automatic reason to come back every Christmas like most of you guys have). This is weird, as I've lived here my whole life, and I can't really imagine never coming back.

Anyway, blah blah blah. I have to go watch the Oilers get their asses kicked now, but I promise I'll post something far more interesting than this soon.

Boring! More spring break antics, please. I'm sure the gals at UBC-Okanagan would know how to bring it.
What ever happened to posts about cars and Scrabble (tm)?

That's a little harsh. I think this at least deserves another comment. Good work. I thought it was a fine discussion on post-degree confusion. I know it well.

I heard you can also get an HJ at Ryerson, but it's not as good.
