Ramble Ramble.

How about proper journal entry this time?

I'm certainly calmer than last night, though I don't really wish to talk about that. I started going back to work again this week, which has been strangely comforting. Breaks are very nice, but once they start to stretch on too long I tend to get bored and depressed. Not to mention there is that ever so pertinent money issue that goes along with school breaks. I'd much rather be working them as it means I wouldn't have to worry so much about my bills during the holidays.

School starts next week! I've rather missed that as well, despite how much it tends to stress me out. I've missed Chinese and am super excited to start Japanese; the engineering courses I will survive. This semester I have the goal of a 4.0. I have two language classes and only two engineering courses: I should be able to do it. My GPA is a sad little thing and I want to ease it up into a more respectable number.

Also starting next week: I have three transcribing classes to do this semester. That means this is a very good chance to save up as the semester goes along, to help my budgeting goals. I have a lot of things I want to save up for, so I need to do that hard and fast as the year gets going.

Basically I want this year to be one of constant improvement. I have so many things I want to do in the future (and, to be honest, so many things about myself that I'm sick of), and the only way I'll get there is to start the foundation now.
