I had my visit to Kirkwood Community College today. Lots and lots to think about. I pretty much sat down with the entire list of classes and circled the ones I was interested is spending money to learn about. It's very telling, much more so than all those assessment tests I took.
Psychology, Philosophy, Anatomy, Play Analysis, Creative Writing (natch), Graphic Communications, Literature, Interior Design, Sociology, Political Sciences, Human Services and so on.
See a pattern here? A little bit a of people thing going on here, along with some creative outlets. I'm starting to narrow it down, and by no means do I need to pick anything resembling a major anytime soon. No matter which one I choose to continue on with, I'm most certainly interested in learning about these subject, and many relate to the other in some form or another. I have an appointment coming up with my Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, Bruce, and I think we'll actually have something to discuss this time. :D I also want to call my cousin Blake, as I don't think I've properly bounced I ideas of of him yet and I'm almost certain he'll have some kind of incite that would be helpful.
In other news, my cousin Joe is going to be a daddy. He's the oldest of the grandchildren on my mom's side so I'm rather relived it's not me (or my sister *shudder*) who has to to have the first great grand kid. His brother John, (the cousin who was hit by the flood) is engaged to the rather competent Rose, so there's another first that I don't have to do. However, I may very well be the first to go to college (unless I screw up royally *knocks on wood*). John was going to be a nurse, but he had to drop out due to past football injures that wouldn't let him play. My beloved cousin Blake will be going to college for Nuclear Propulsion due to his joining the Navy. Hey, he's getting paid to go to school, and will only have to serve for a few years. He's also a summer baby, but he was held back instead of pushed along anyway like I was, so he has a bit of school still left to go.
Hmm, it seems that one of these days I'm going to have to do a big long post on my family. Or probably a series of them, by aunt/uncle/grandparent. My grandma has 5 kids and 13 grand kids so there's a lot of stories to tell. I'm afraid I don't know much about my dad's side, due to them living on the other side of the country in California and Connecticut. But I guess that's a story for later. ;)
