School Daze

I began this blog while sitting in the bright sun in the open quad of the community college where I’m currently working, during my lunch break.

Sitting here I think about how much has change. You see, this is the same college I attended oh so many years ago (don’t go there, you can figure it out.)

Since I was there several building have been torn down and new ones were built in their places. I spent many long days in the library. Wish I had this new library back then. The buildings they replaced didn’t fit with the original pre World War II architecture, but they tried very hard with these new buildings to make it match. Most of it looks like it belongs here now.

The new cafeteria and student center is fantastic as well. Imagine dinning hall from Harry Potter, but with out the floating candles.

What I was also seeing across the campus were all the students. College students are college students no matter what year they are from, but I kinda wish I had attended school this year and not when I did.

There are more geeks and nerds on campus and I would have fit in so much more.

Back then I would have been laughed at for having a SUPEMAN t-shirt. Now it's a norm along with others. Standing in line for lunch the other day I over heard a girl talking about her character in WORLD OF WARCRAFT. A couple of very muscular, could be football players, guys were playing a game of MAGIC THE GATHERING in the middle of the cafeteria.

Some girls, and some guys, go about with hair brightly colored that they look like they stepped right out of a Japanese anime.

Another girl went past me on her skateboard dressed in Steampunk gear.

I want to go to this school and not the boring one I went to.

Okay, I’m being silly, but I really haven enjoyed being back on campus for the last few months working on the school’s alumni newsletter. Maybe I’m being sentimental, but this job ends next Monday.

Looks like might be continuing part of the assignment, but not on campus. Not around all the cool kids.

Can I go back to school?

No. I don’t want to go back to school. I want to work. I want to work at a television studio.
