Day 583 & 584 – Planning my future

Sunday, October 1, 2017

I did basically nothing this day.

I watched YouTube, played This War of Mine and read a little bit of Fifth Business and Life of Pi. I also watched three or four Supernatural episodes.

My parents came back in the morning! My brother and I talked with them quite a bit before we had to leave for work and school. 

I started off with French. We got our grammar quizzes back and I did average. I did better than I thought I would anyway. We also watched the rest of the movie.

In math we learned something new and I’m really confused as to what’s going on, but I’ll figure it out.

At lunch I sat with my close friends as usual, then I went off to English, where we did the usual as well. 

In technology I nearly finished a Blender tutorial. I was also called by my math teacher (he’s also my counsellor) to check what are my plans after high school. He wrote down some things, suggested to resist accepting jobs before graduating when in college, and to check out more options, since apparently I get the choice of 5 programs. I thanked him and I used “tu” instead of “vous” again… Hopefully he didn’t notice, but anyhow. I decided to look at more options and I decided for one of my choices I’ll just do a backup career as one of them, because I don’t really have enough programs choices for the career I’m heading into. The fancy animation school I was looking at actually has a bachelor program for creative writing and publishing as well. Being an author is something I’ve always considered, so I decided to put that as one of my options.

At home I talked about it with my parents and we also started looking at scholarships. While I was going through a huge list of them, finding weird ones like getting a scholarship if your last name is “Mathieu”, and looked at other animation programs. I found another one people kept recommending me, but never looked at really since it’s out of my city, but most of my choices are not in my city anyway at this point, so I decided to give it a shot. So in the end, I have 4 choices of programs for animation, and 1 in creative writing. I may decide to drop one animation program, not sure yet. My second option just doesn’t seem like the best as all. I have until the end of the month to properly chose before I meet my counsellor again anyhow.

I read the rest of Life of Pi and my parents also gave me loop earrings as souvenir from their trip.

That’s all for today.
