Thinking... now that can be scary

Well, I've been doing some thinking, and as I said, that can be scary. Granted, I've been thinking about nothing too terribly important, but it still stands that that can be disturbing. Anyways, I have been considering what I should minor in (obviously, I have yet to decide). I'm very much considering an English minor, in part because I don't want my impression of the English department to be one class with Batts and one other class (I've got AP credit for English Lit I as well). But on a more serious note, I would really like to be able to understand more of our modern culture, and studying literature is probably the best way to do that, other than history. But history has become boring for me, so that's out of the question. Also, I generally like reading but can't find enough time to read while I'm here, so this sounds like a good way to force myself to make time to read.

I'm also considering (how to put this) one-and-a-half (yes, that will do) majoring in Computer Science and Math and Math, B.S. Don't worry, Gallagher won't become a fuzzy anytime so far as I can tell, I simply like programming and math too much. And it would just be weird considering how geeky I am and how proud I am of that. But that is neither here nor there, and so I'll get back to thinking.

Having considered my recent post on my anti-social tendency, I have realized that I have become so much more social in the last two or three years than I had ever been in the past. Perhaps this is just part of growing up and that everyone becomes more social as they come to know and understand themselves better. I don't have any other good explanation for it, except that when I was still at home, I lived in the shadow of my reputation. My parents and my friends all thought of me as a quiet, shy, very reserved kid who never spoke up except when called on. Granted, I did change much of that reputation by my senior year, but I still think that living with my parents caused me to be less social than I might have wanted to be at times.

Well, this is all well and good, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to go see what's happening with Life With Father and then Bible study after that. I'll see what kind of rant I can work up tomorrow or Sunday (more likely Monday) when I finish my homework for Batts. Ugh...

Thus begins a new era...

...or something like that. But anyway, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm over here now. And I'll staying over here, ranting about HNRS 1023 and how pathetic my social life is, maybe even mention what I did during the day sometime.
