I’m Baaaack!

happy fall
happy fall

Today I deleted the Facebook and Twitter apps off of my phone because those are the two most distracting things in my life at the moment. Sit down to do homework, open Facebook, get up an hour later having done no homework. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time I gave the real world a try.

So what have I been up to? Biggest life change: going to college. The questions I am routinely asked: Where are you going to school? How did you choose said school? How do you like said school? What are you majoring in? What are you going to do with the rest of your life?

Question 1: The College of Wooster.

Question 2: I read a book plus I listened to my super knowledgeable and all around awesome uncle.

Question 3: I love said school.

Question 4: If I had to answer this question today, I would say I’m majoring in English and minoring in Political Science. If you had asked me yesterday I would have said that I’m majoring in Political Science and minoring in English. If you had asked me the day before that, I would have said I’m majoring in Political Science and minoring in Early Year Education. This is the most annoying and yet most persistent question I get asked. Also so many people outside of Wooster think I’m crazy for going to school without having my life figured out. Guess what? I don’t have my life figured out. Whatever. I’m not supposed to. I’m not concerned about it. This is not the thing that keeps me up at night.

Question 5: Ha. Haha. HAHAHAHAHA. Why are you asking me that question; can you hear how annoying you are sounding? (Incidentally, for the rest of my life, I plan on living. How I will live, now, that’s the real question.)

What does keep me up at night? Whether I have tomorrow’s reading done. Global warming and climate change and the environment in general. The United States political system and this year’s presidential election, as well as big business and lobbyists and whether they serve a democratic function to the government or not. (Talk to my parents — I was yelling at my books during fall break and they told me I shouldn’t do anymore homework with them present.)

I hope you enjoyed this short post! I’ll try to keep up with the blogging world on a more consistent basis.

  1. Claire — That’s a joyful post! It sounds like you are thriving in your new home. I wish I had had a chance to hear you yelling at your books when you were in Colorado for fall break. Between my crazy work schedule and a trip to Boston I could not stop by for a visit. But I will follow your blog to learn your latest life observations!

  2. 1. So happy you like your college!
    2. None of know what we’re majoring in, or what we want to do with the rest of our life…. and I’m freaking old!
    3. We are all frustrated with the election, environmental changes, and lobbyists. Does yelling at the textbook help? Maybe I’ll get one.
    Hang in there! Great to hear from you.

  3. Glad you’re baaaack. Miss you. I hope you get your books straightened out. They sound like real pains. It’s good to yell at them once in a while to keep them in line. Otherwise they get cocky and start throwing their weight around. Show em who’s boss!

    Love Mom

  4. Yay for the return of the Claire blog! So glad to hear you’re loving your college, and that you don’t know what you’re majoring in yet. Lordy, you’ve only been there two months! You’ve got at least two years to sort this out. Hold yer horses, people! Keep on yelling at your books and being feisty. Love you!
