    Liberal Arts With No Double Major

    I've not ever been professionally successful for longer than 1 year at a stretch my entire life. I fell for the liberal arts track (foreign language) late in life in the mid 90's but was mistakenly not advised to get a double major (marketing, or something concrete) to go with...

    Geez. I did it again.

    Responding to something that I thought had meaning, but upon further investigation I think it probably went over their lil' head. Oh well, it's no wonder then. Can't really empathize with something I know will be a repetitious thing of actions.

    It's Getting Louder

    That buzzing of discontent like bees swarming around the memory of a wilted flower. The boom of the clock hand as it marches another day into a long line of memories. The click of worry replacing anticipation of tomorrow. I need some new sounds.
