    Well, I have finnished school. Now passing the time until university with reading, writing and I was about to start painting again.

    Also I am practicing karate and escrima just for fun.

    When I do nothing of the above, I sit around and think or go out with friends and get drunk.

    Not much, is it? I know, but I like it this way

    I'm finishing high school this year. I got accepted to study English and an English/Teaching degree. I am going to wait a year, and get a couple high school credits that will allow me to study Biology/Teaching in University. I am also leaning toward theater/movie production. I think it is stupid that I need advanced Calculus to get into Biology. I play the piano at a high level, I play the bass and I am doing military basic training for the reserve army (you only go one day a month and they pay $2000 toward my University).

    Well, just as addition to my last post, I will (perhaps) study general linguistics and philosophy or history.

    My career goal is about the same as Porfiry┬┤s.

    Finished HS, achieved Associates degree in arts. Going for BFA. Main goal, so far: MFA. Possibly going for highest degree in Art History.
    Minors are not allowed in any art college that I've checked out so far, and I'm stuck in mine at least for another two years. For that reason, all things that I wish to learn aside from art I learn in proud solitude or in some beginner's level course. That includes languages, lit, science, etc. /snif.

    BS cum laude in molecular biology, minor chemistry
    skipped masters, working as a chem technician
    in a few years i may go to grad school and on to PhD, once i figure out which field i want to go with...i had several concentrations. none of them are appealing to me right now. i'm happy with chemistry for now. maybe i'll even go with math!

    and since people are putting silly stuff, I speak French (I speak and write it quite well and I passed the national French literacy test). I am getting my full Lifeguarding qualification this weekend (that's like $25 an hour in Toronto) and I got accepted to THREE UNIVERSITIES, I'm a little excitied, but I am getting extra credits this year while working. I got into the reserve army, bur I might not start training until the fall on weekends, so I applied to a few jobs for the summer, I am guaranteed to get at least one (Day Care Attendant, Museum Arechiveist or Librarian assistant, damn small town jobs are boring) tosave cash for university.... I can't wait to become educated, I never thought I would say that. I hate lingering around the lesser in lesser jobs when I have potential, and I only really realised that this year.
