I think I might want to be a teacher.

HOWEVER, I don't know if it's a very good idea for me to be a teacher.

See, I guess I've been having this motivation problem lately, or rather, a lack-of-motivation problem. I didn't do very well grade-wise this year, because there was a lot of work I kind of didn't do. I did very well in terms of sorting my head out, it may not have been a good school year but it was a great life year, but that's not going to show up on my transcript or make the scholarship office less likely to cut me loose or reassure my parents. So I don't count it a wasted year even though my GPA is half a point short of the cuttoff--but I'd still very much like to not be cut off.

My parents ask me every so often whether I'm sure this is the right field for me. Probably because I went from "I dunno" to physics to asian studies to journalism before settling on computer sicence. However, physics and asian studies were my mom's ideas, and journalism was something I was sort of interested in but it was also the thing that least pissed off Lindsay at the time. Ironically, computer science was also Lindsay's idea, something suitably male and suitably analagous to the work on cars that Zac did, but I ended up liking programming so I didn't switch to something else when she left.

Belatedly cut for length... )

Feh. I don't even know what to make of this crazy idea. I've gotten all turned around thinking about it. I feel like there was more I wanted to say about it but I can't remember now.

I was just realizing that I hadn't changed my titles from the Dresden Dolls references, but somehow the site has rearranged itself so that you can't? WTF is up with that? Suddenly I can edit the comments text and so on, something I thought was reserved for paid accounts, but I can't edit my title and subtitle? Surely sub/title is more important than whether your comments link says "Comment" or "Fuck me"?

Does anyone know anything about this?
