Summer Plans

Posted: April 20, 2009 in Uncategorized

I’m thinking of joining a gym this summer. Not a jungle gym like I’m used to using, but an actual adult gym. By adult, I mean for grown ups andin no way am I advocating pornography when I say ‘Adult.’ I really want to get in shape this summer but not to feel proud or motivated or anything. I think it’s more for intimidation and to protect myself and others. I would really like to study many social phenomena that occur at Venice’s Gold Gym. I wish I could just follow through with it though. I just want for my body and my brain to co-exist or something beautiful like that. I hope if I do get pretty buff that I won’t forget why I wanted to. I’m not really into feeling stronger than others. But stuff happens to people when they change, they change. I feel like if I were to fit into a nice group that accepts me and manipulates me to be like them, I’d just end up hating my old self, which isn’t such a good thing. I think I’m better at a slower pace anyway. Maybe people prefer doing things in groups but I doubt it’s for me. Just like tattoos and marijuana- it’s not for everyone. Anyway, I hope to keep focus on my self-stability and academic goals as main priorities.

Northern California is where I want to be in two years or maybe in one. I’d really enjoy being closer with nature over there, even though there are many trees already here. And to be honest, my Sociology teacher said that Southern California is like a totally different country compared to the rest of the U.S. I want to go to some school there, but if I want to go to Berkeley, the counselor says to get all A’s from now on, which is stupid cuz there are plenty teachers who give Bs of regardless. Therefore, I must be more open minded to trying to get into an array different schools; after all, I know what it’s like to be rejected and my goals are aimed high so if I fail it will still be okay. Something about Northern California catches my attention, but it’s only a possibility for now. If I’ve learned anything from college it’s to not plan so ahead because stuff happens and you might hate those plans later. It’s probably better to focus on shorter goals more, while still coming up with a basic long term goal. I’m beginning to sound full of myself and I apologize.

Anyway, I don’t get to speak to any of you,so I don’t know what to do about it because I bet many of you are probably too busy with your careers, jobs, education, or other friends. I just hope that you are happy where you are inside. & I hope I get to see a lot of you when school starts again, howver I really doubt it from on account of some experiences lately. Thanks for everything.

P.S I would really like your opinion on which class to take this summer. It has to be a biological science and these are the only three choices:

-Physical Anthropology (Studying ancient ancient people’s/ monkey’s bones and fossils)

– Human biology (biology but about people and not plants)

– Nutrition (Food groups and healthy foods/ portions)

That’s about it because I definitely don’t want to take Anatomy with lab- too much work…
And for everyone that goes to SMC I recommend you take Sociology 1 with Professor Levy this summer, but it starts at 8 am but it’s worth it and worth everyday of your time there. Bye
