It's Go Time:


Normally, I say that around finals, but I got a lot of improving to do as of now.
Going to my advisor last week, really didn't help me at all.
He thought I was in there to start planning out my schedule for next semester, so that's what we did for the majority of the time until I told him straight-up, I need to drop my History class.
He basically gave me a list of reasons why I can't drop it & when I told him how shitty the professor is, he told me his History majors usually love him.
...I'm an English major.
Soooo, looks like I'm pretty stuck with these God-forsaken classes I chose this semester.
I was thinking about dropping my English class earlier this semester but now it's been going quite well for me, I'm just hoping my math & history are soon to follow.
...The other class I'm taking is American Sign Language & I started learning that in 5th grade, so it's cake.

Anyway, I guess the main reason I decided to stop by was because I've been thinking about doing a little 30-day challenge.
Well, currently, it's looking more like a 10 day challenge, but I'd like to get it up to at least 20-days.
Basically, I thought I'd make a playlist of 10, 20 or 30 songs on my iPod & everyday, I'd pick a song & write something heavily inspired by it (be it a poem, haiku, short story, whatevs).
Yes, this is more of an English-geek kind of challege, but I've been finding myself in sort of a creative rut until I randomly wrote a poem based off an old Dance Gavin Dance song.
The main issue I had here was, I made a list of 10 songs that related perfectly to my current situation...& then, later that day, my whole situation changed.
So, I don't know if making a playlist is really the best idea, maybe I just need to choose the song based on how I'm feeling that day.
I just need to get my wheels turning again.
Feeling stagnant in the only thing I do well, is making me lose my mind.

Other than that, school has been hectic as shit.
I'm tired & I'm tired of being tired.
Hopefully, my little self-challenge comes to fruition.
This semester is really rough, but I'm trying.
Guess I gotta try a little bit harder.
