Didn't think this applied to me, but there's no mention of graduation date being relevant (nor enrollment date). SO, if I can get back in...

'Course, they're messing with this in the current budget, so it may be one of those rays of sunlight that gets instantly clouded over. But...

Lately I've been feeling... hmm... like an intellectual slacker, in a lot of ways. Too many people I know are hip deep in their doctorates or masters or trying to go to law school or... yeah, etc etc etc. And in many ways, though I'm good at tests or what have you, I've always felt academically inferior to a lot of my friends, mostly because I'm somewhat lazy/shallow in my pursuit of knowledge - while there are a few things I "geek" on, and I'm good at trivia, I'm more like a very large very flat puddle info-wise rather than a well of knowledge on anything.

I need to fix this at some point.

But at any rate, I found this on [ profile] alphasarah's journal while reading my "friendsfriends" page (having a paid LJ is quite nice!), and thought I'd do it.

These are the 101 "most influential" books as chosen by the College Board - the people who do the SAT and such - and while they're not the most authoritative people in the world, it's still interesting. So anyway, the ones I've read are in bold, the ones where I've only seen the movie are in italic (shame on me!).

101 Books )

Hmm, I'm not sure whether this entry came out as more snobby or pathetic - I guess that's up to y'all. It's just interesting - maybe I should read less fluff and fill in the list a bit. Any suggestions as to what I *really* need to read, on or off the list?

It's nice being the class geek again. I never thought I'd say that, but I'm sitting in imageWARE class right now, and of course, I have a lot more experience / product knowledge than anyone (save perhaps one guy? though I'd go head to head w/ him and expect to win - am I too competitive) in the class. So half the questions the instructor asks, he ends with "Jennifer don't answer". This amuses me highly, though it probably shouldn't... (and I'm really not trying to dominate the class, I promise! that's at least one thing I learned since high school...)

I almost wish I could go back to the student thing full-time though... I don't think that there's anyway of feasibly doing that right now, though, unfortunately. And I'm still a little unsure as to what I would do - though the idea of being a marriage / sex therapist still intrigues me, more than any other profession I've thought about since leaving Carolina.

The problem, of course, is that I thoroughly screwed myself in the way I left Carolina... not only did I lose my scholarships, but of course, my GPA was horrid from not going to I'm not really sure how I would go about going back to school... is there anyone out there who's done it who has any clue?

And of course there's the cash thing... ie I have no way of affording tuition. :-( or at least if I COULD afford tuition, it'd be going back to student style living - ramen, a cheaper apartment, etc etc etc. And a lot less SCA / SCA stuff... I'm not sure these are tradeoffs I'm quite ready for.
still, it's something to ponder...
