Anyway, I signed up for 6 classes for Fall, but it is only 16 units due to science lab, but I am debating if I should drop the 7-9:45 pm class since being at school at night...seems like a no no to be and because of what had happened growing up. But, I don't know, one of my friends took night classes and said it was a bit creepy to walk around campus at night. She is a girl too.
I am still keeping my fingers crossed for a film internship (have one I really want and finally got through) and will drop a class if I get one or I will be too overwhelmed.
Sometimes, too, I still get upset because someone my age should not be a work-alcoholic or feel "unsafe" or "uncomfortable" when the time comes when I ever have a boyfriend. But, I know I cannot regret it because in all honesty, I know that in order to be where I am today, I had to go through some of the stuff that had happened.
I do feel as though I am trying my best to "accept" what had happened and to not only forgive them and just people in general, not hold grudges, but to forgive myself as well. I am guilty of saying and doing a lot I had done but still learning on how this all works.
Anyway, I am still reading my summer book and I have noticed that every time I read it, I get bummed because of the protagonist's past. He reminds me of myself, but thankful that other writers are bringing a subject like this out. People need to open their eyes more.
