Warships snoozing in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo Bay before dawn
🤣🤣🤣🤣 welcome to our world, bitches!
I’ve been considering doing something different after this semester. My university, like all the others, have completely switched to an online structure, and I’m not compatible with that teaching style. I’ve heard that the virus is expected to make a comeback late fall/early winter, and I would rather avoid being stuck in this situation next semester. Unfortunately, I have loans that kick in if I’m not in school full-time. I already took a break last spring, so im just not sure what to do to avoid the crippling depression I’ve been facing during this quarantine.
I’m just so stressed and depressed, I dont know what to do with my life to make me happy. I can’t see my support group, i have no job and no money, I can’t go to the art studio and make art when all my art classes have moved online (whatever the fuck that means), and I don’t have any motivation to keep up with the borderline abusive, extra workload that these fucking professors have dumped on us.
I know if I don’t do something about this, I’m going to end up cutting for the first time in three years, or feeling suicidal again.
I’m an anti-imperialist leftist, and as much as I hate hate hate what the US military does abroad and domestically, I’ve been looking into the short term benefits of possibly joining the navy. It would at the very least give me the structure that I wont be seeing in any school for the next year while capitalism fails miserably to get a handle on the current pandemic. I know I need a change, and I feel pushed into a corner, with the military being one of the very few ways out that doesnt involve having loanshark company’s come after me for student loans, or working at mcdonalds for the rest of my life.
