Choices, Choices

Note: Much as I love the arbitrary, it's merely a coincedence that all of my titles for today start with a "C." At least, as far as my conscious brain can tell.

One of the things I wrote about last night before dinner was my near-complete lack of career motivation. Thanks to Antioch's wonderful co-op program, where I used to find some jobs appealing, I now dislike virtually everything. That's the kind of real-world work experience that you just won't get at other colleges, kids!

I figured, if I'm having such terrible trouble motivating myself now, just wait until I actually graduate! Actually, upon further introspection, that isn't looking as bad. I can simply continue on the same path I'm going now, ie, stay as a student. Sure, I'm not terribly motivated to studentize, but it's something I can do, and I'm not directly motivated not to do it, like I am pretty much everything else. It's a low level dislike me and the education system have.

Course, this may seem like a good idea now, but wait til I have to pick universities and delve into the deep dark pit of my psyche that involves applying to schools. Ugh.
