Apartment Hunting, House Cleaning [Sep. 14th, 2016|01:21 am]
tenshikurai9
Unless my request for an extension is approved, my voucher will expire Friday. Unfortunately I've had dead ends like, people who will initially contact me back, but when I answer their further questions, they drop off the face of the planet, even after I make an attempt to follow up. And if I do get my extension approved, the requirement to lease in place for a year means my ability to move in time for Fall 2017 at MCLA is negatively impaired.

In other news, I've helped my parents bag 22, 23 contractor's bags worth of trash.

Updates [Jul. 22nd, 2016|02:56 pm]

Okay. So my parents finally are both taking action to clean the house, but they're doing so after they're at their slowest and the clutter is at its highest. I'm trying to help them bag as much trash as possible into contractor's bags so elder services can pick-up up to 40 bags at a time for up to 2 times. Though it's a bit overwhelming to be just 3 people dealing with this place.

Thursday I got a Section 8 voucher and have to move it or lose it. I also have one more year left of college so now I have to get an apartment in North Adams that's a 30-45 minute walk from my school or downtown. If for some reason you know that area, send me leads.

I'm finally going to get a phone with data (Pokemon Go broke me.) Any comments about customer service and price about any company I should know?

Not So Happy Holidays [Dec. 24th, 2015|08:32 pm]

Dear Christmas,

Please be over. I associate you with bad memories, the most recent of which involves finding out Monday that my short time frame to go from never hearing about my mom's cousin's existence to learning he was alive is already over and has been over since September. We never got to meet face-to-face and my mom will never have a face-to-face reunion now.

But the other times haven't been happy either so excuse me while I go read a book and ignore all the specials.

Sincerely,

Me

Ghosts of Times Past [Jun. 4th, 2015|08:00 pm]

So I had my vocab rehab meeting today and decided to come home after poking into the mall to look at pretty skating merchandise at Zumiez, one of the few reasons you can see me voluntarily stop in a mall if I happen to be in the area (but not as reason enough to journey to one.) Before I got into the mall, I was in conversation with a guy who recognized me from high school. I just managed to have a conversation without giving away that I don't remember him or most of the people we went to school with and never actually got to know people that well in the first place.

So victory on getting through a conversation. Weird feelings on anything connected with high school, the worst time of my life, even when I'm interacting with people who had nothing to do with why it was the worst time of my life.

Class of. . . [Jun. 3rd, 2015|07:55 pm]

I'm finally at a point where my adviser and me can predict the semester I'll actually graduate. Spring 2017. The last class for the art major is Senior Project, but it's offered only in the Spring. I can't get enough level-300 and -400 classes done in time to graduate in Spring 2016. So it'll be Spring 2017 instead. The adviser was worried that I'd complete all other classes for art and my minor of arts management and be left without other classes to take, but I told her I've made back-up plans.

1. Take a semester break in the Fall and come back in the Spring. The options for this belongs in another list and the rest of this list have potential credits.

2. Take a second minor of Theatre.

3. Participate in one of the study abroad programs (Spring or Fall 2016), the National Semester Exchange (NSE) programs, or CAPS, the semester exchange program we have with the other state universities and colleges (except UMASS-Amherst.)

4. Co-ordinate a semester leave from MCLA (Spring or Fall 2016) and arrange a semester at a school that isn't part of the previously mentioned programs.

5. We have cross-registration with Berkshire Community College (BCC) and Williams, but the fact that I don't drive/am-car-less-on-campus-anyway makes scheduling MCLA and other classes normally difficult. Except if I didn't have any other MCLA requirements during the Fall semester, I could find out if I'm allowed to just happen to have everything cross-registered. Then I'd just be concerned about the first bus and walking combination of the day and the last bus and walking combination of the day that would get me to and from the right campus.

6. Get a credit-bearing internship (Spring or Fall 2016) and have the freedom to have it somewhere other than in my school's backyard. (Albeit still restricted by variables like whether housing is provided or if I have a connection to help me with a couch.)

7. Make a series of independent studies that culminate into a larger project. Like for example, a graphic novel. My adviser does bookbinding and printing, find someone to do writing for graphic novels, talk to my drawing teacher. . .

But in the short run, back to summer (a time of traveling, hitting people up, and an online course.)

Intersection of Bits and Bits of Flesh [Jun. 1st, 2015|09:18 pm]

[Current Mood |bewildered]

Something I don't understand. When you meet up with someone and you ask them what they've been up to and they mention, well I've been posting it to facebook. But this isn't the first time you've told them, I don't keep up with my feed.

Race/Ethnicity/Class? [Apr. 17th, 2015|01:31 am]
tenshikurai9
So on the 25th, MCLA's hosting the Live Out Loud Conference and it's the kind of thing organized by the Berkshire Area Health Education Centers (AHEC.)  In the, collecting demographic information for federal record keeping section of the online registration, I saw the usual race/ethnic categories.  Except white was white, white-advantaged, and white-disadvantaged.  First time I've seen white divided up like that on demographic questions for legal record keeping.

Furries and School [Apr. 15th, 2015|05:39 pm]

That moment when you realize you might be able to talk to your teacher about furries--for class.

^_^

Also, wandered into furs between a visit to my old school and one at my new school.
