...was totally what i needed.
i took a little trip out to ucla today. mostly because i've felt unmotivated for a while and right now is the time when i should be most motivated, with transfer applications (round two) being due soon. when my original plans went awry (long story short, i was supposed to transfer this semester but i was planning to take a math/stats class over the summer, but i needed to have had taken it in the spring), my motivation tanked too.
so anyway. ucla is basically my dream school. i fell in love with it as soon as i set foot on campus back when i was a high school freshman (those were the days. ha). i'm not sure i'm going to get in because my major is crazy competitive. but i needed to see the campus again (i haven't been there in about 3 years) to motivate myself, to start pushing myself again, to tell myself WHY i should bother with stuff.
also had a chance to meet up with a friend who i haven't seen in a while, so that was cool. he showed me the dorms (the transfer dorms were NICE) and let me take advantage of his underused meal plans. i also ran into a couple of people from high school who i haven't seen for a few years, which was kinda funny because they thought i went there already. ha.
that place has a TON of stairs (and hills) though. i mean i thought it was just my out-of-shapeness, but my friend (mr. totally in shape) confirmed it for me.

(i thought this was funny. is it because their football team was disappointing this year?)
