Hey pubsters!

I'm taking two summer courses, Computer Science and Linear Algebra. I'm trying to worm myself out of the liberal arts and into a computer science/engineering degree. I had fun, but in addition to the economic anxiety those things should give me an opportunity to express myself creatively as well while making bank. I also found it to be too easy. I like math, and I shouldn't be doing what I feel is fuck all and still finishing poetry class with an 86.

Thank God I actually have the courage to pursue music again. I was in a funk band in high school and missed it SO FUCKING MUCH. I physically cannot restrain myself from picking up a guitar at least three times a week. At the end of the day, that kind of irrational love is what should drive one's career. I fully plan on it, I'm just trying to a) have a backup plan and b) make enough cash that I can funnel it into non-profits and art collectives.
