Where has my life gone?

Why the hell am I senior? It seemed like it took forever to be a senior in HS, and now I'm less than a year away from being done with my higher education. And basically, I feel like I am in no way ready to be a contributing member of society, let alone leave the comforting confines of academia, where I have no real responsibilities and too much free time. I'm sure this thought scares all people who approach graduation, and hopefully I'll be less worried/freaked out about this prospect as the year goes on and all sorts of things fall into place. I mean, shit, it was just yesterday I was drinking beer with Mitch on our cardboard couch in Pembroke, and now I'm wondering how I'll survive once I get a diploma.

Why did I think being an engineer was a good idea again? Someone, refresh my memory.

I only have one week left in my internship at Georgetown. It's not exactly how I pictured it would be, but it's not a total waste of time either, as I've learned how a mastering studio operates, a subject of which I was in the complete dark about before this started. And I have learned a few valuable tricks, so it's not all been lost. School kicks back up in a little more than 2 weeks, and when Andrew asked me what classes I was taking, I couldn't name them. Is this a bad thing? I should probably look into it before the 23rd. And I need to buy books. Whatever.

As far as my pilaging of the Georgetown CD collection goes, the best find has been Alejandro Escovedo's Gravity, which is a great "traditional" alt-country record. And by that I mean that it sounds like country should, not like what I've been subjected to on a daily basis while interning.
