Kill Jill Goes To College

I’m suddenly an arts student!


So, I’m about two weeks into the Interactive Multimedia at College X. Loving it so far, despite the amount of homework it comes with. Learning a lot about design and digital creativity every day.

But it’s tough- going to school, keeping up with school work, working 20 hours a week and trying to have some sort of a life. I go down to 16 hours per week the week after next, so hopefully things will get a little easier.

My class is very, very small. We’re down to 7. And I like it that way. And I can honestly say I like everyone in it. (We had a guy quit. He was less than pleasant. But everyone else is just dandy.)

Here’s my new schedule:

That’s right, kids. I’m the artsy fartsy student I’ve always wanted to be, not-so-secretly. So, things are pretty chill so far. And my instructor is a very cool chicky who really knows her stuff. I’ll be interested to see where I’m at in a few months.

I’ve been working on a list of goals as of late. The following goals are for this semester (unless stated otherwise).

  1. I will drink more water (and less vodka).
  2. I will keep my part-time job (or stop paying rent).
  3. I will go to bed at a decent hour.
  4. I will apply for at least 12 bursaries/scholarships.
  5. I will leave for school before 8:50am and, therefore, not be late for class.
  6. I will continue working on my novel, and not use lame excuses in order to put it off.
  7. I will continue painting, and not use lame excuses in order to put it off.
  8. I will save cash for Christmas gifts.
  9. I will save enough cash to purchase a 15-inch display Macbook Pro and some design software at the end of the school year.
  10. I will not be impulsive with any purchases over $25.
