Deep Thoughts (Jack Handy not included)

So, I haven't written a new post since Thursday, but there are good reasons for that, I'm sure. What reasons, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.

Reason 1: I spent Friday and Saturday going to/coming from/at MLC. This tends to eat up one's time to the tune of two days, 12 hours of which are spent in the car with one's parents. However, one does get to sleep in Nick Haasch's dorm room and give him a wet willy at like 7 in the morning when he thinks you're asleep and totally isn't expecting a wet willy, and then he hits you.

Reason 2: I've spent all the time not taken up by the above mentioned activities, and my job, thinking. How long can it take? You have no idea. You see, part of the reason I haven't posted is what exactly it is I've been thinking about.

For those of you who didn't know, I'm a computer science major at UW-Whitewater. Now, as of late I have found two major things wrong with this. The first, and most obvious, is UW-Whitewater. I seriously despise this place, with a passion. The second, less obvious one is the fact that I'm a computer science major. As this year has progressed I've begun to realize that maybe programming computers for a career isn't something that I could do my whole life. Realizing one's chose field of study isn't right for them leads to a surprisingly large amount of thinking. Well, I think, what else could I do?

Well, since I wouldn't be me if I didn't do something completely and utterly random every once in a while, I thought, What would be almost the exact opposite of what I'm doing now?

Ah hah! I could be a high-school English teacher!

And so, after much prayerful deliberation, and a lot of help and advice from some of my dear friends, I have decided that I will be attending MLC for to get a BSE with a minor in English. I'm a crazy guy.

And though I said "Jack Handy not included," here's just a little Jack Handy for my closing thought:

I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.
