We put one foot in front in front of the other, and move like we ain't got no other.

Dreamwidth, huh?

There has been numerous sites just like LiveJournal I've at least signed up for over the years and most have gone under after a while. DeadJournal is the only one that comes to mind that is still around. But seeing as LiveJournal itself has been horrible to deal with lately, here I am.

I'm Dusk, or Kaia, or Kasey. I answer to any. The later is my real name, but I find it boring. Gamer, yogini, wannabe Vagabond, Biology student, vodka drinker, among other things.

I can kill you in Black Ops!

Actually, probably not, but I am totally great to play games with.

Serious note, I start a new university on the 22nd of August and I owe them 13,600 right now. I have maybe 3,000 in the bank. Whoops. I don't actually make that much in a year. I'm just waiting for Financial Aid to finally get back to me, but I'm trying to prepare for the worst. I've always thought I need to get my degree. I'm too book-smart not to, but lately that interest is waning. Not getting a degree has never been an option. Ever. School has always been an absolute in my life, no question on the necessity of it. And I still understand the importance, in security, in money, just overall, but what if that isn't the life that I want? What if I want a life on the road? What if I don't want to be bound by the amount of money I make?

What if I realize money isn't what makes a person happy?

"Money doesn't bring happiness, but it does bring a lot of comfort." A very wise women said that to me once, and she also said to me, "There is life outside of this county. Explore." I need to e-mail her.

What if I want to be like Matt , and go all over the world and just dance?

A better question than what if is why not? These thoughts almost consume me now. One day, self. I promise you.

If I don't end up having the money for school, or the Financial Aid doesn't come through, I'm going.
