So far away, we wait for the day, though the light source's all wasted and gone
We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
Through the fire and the flames we carry on
I never would have guessed that "the day" would be "today". But at long last, "the day" is today. I took my math final this morning, it took me about three hours, I still have yet to see the score, but now I'm all done. It's been one helluva semester. One helluva four year period. But now, I'm done, and unless I change my mind, it's onto a world that is not shaped like a hamster wheel like college is. I might not be taking the orthodox route, leaving, but I've been forced to wait for everything, and I've waited long enough. I'm going to be taking a break for awhile, and I'm hoping to improve all the skills I wish I were really good at, and I'm getting the ball rolling on cosmetology school. I realize that there are challenges anywhere I go in life, but I have plans and lots of hopes and events scheduled for the near and distant future. At my school, they assign us student identification numbers, and, The Prisoner so famously said "I am not a number, I am a a free man! Ahahaha!" That was my high school shout-out, but since I graduated high school I have become wiser. Though I can say I'm finally FREE! nobody is ever truly free. I am, however, no longer bound to a specific obligation that is not so much of my choosing, and I think that even I know I am a mystery, and whatever happens next is a mystery, despite my immediate and long-term plans. Even though math is, as we all know, one of my most challenging subjects, I can now say it out loud, it would be more appropriate to say it out loud, I must say it out lout:
I AM NOT A NUMBER, I AM UNCONSTRAINED VARIABLE! AHAHAHA!
