To be honest, I could use some fast forwarding through this awful fall semester too. But, I keep reminding myself, that these are the years where we'll be young, and free, and mildly unattached. I will be begging for this precious time back.

I can't fast forward through the majority of my college years just to go on an insanely cool trip. I need to appreciate each moment, and love each day. I know its very hippy dippy to think like that - but I think it helps keep a positive frame of mind.

But I realized the reality of it, and how much I didn't care for it.

I was sitting on the bus, on the way to campus when I realized how much I hated my classes this semester, and how unenthusiastic I was about everything. I realized I didn't want to study something that sure would get me a stable job, but not something that I hated. So why not switch my major. I had been considering law school for a good
