I officially declared my major today: American Literature. And coming soon (tomorrow is my appointment) a minor in spanish (or rather, language studies with an emphasis in Spanish). It feels nice to have things planned out. I called my dad tonight and told him, expecting some kind of joyous parade in my honor...but his response was "why do you need to declare a minor?" and then, offhandedly, "sounds all good kim". I feel like when we talk, he doesn't understand anything I am saying. not because it's complex or anything. it just seems like we are on two different wave-lenghts. Maybe it's just that i don't talk to him that much any more (i try to call once a week, but sometimes i just get so wrapped up with everything). It makes me sad, i guess, to not feel close to my dad right now. he's all I have, you know? But part of me wants to be on my own...not that i haven't had all the independence I could ever dream of...it's just...i feel like i want to be done with school...done with this transitional period in my life. I decided that I'm going to move to san Francisco when i graduate. Hopefully attend the cal state up there and get my teaching credential. But instead of just being there to go to school, i really want to live there. Or at least, i want to try to live there. so yah. just stuff i'm thinking about.
