Origins.

For the past two evenings, I have been captivated by an excellent Nova series called Origins. Being a big space show nut, most of the stuff I already had at least a vague understanding about. However, it actually had a few surprises. But even if it didn’t, I still can’t …

Humanity.

As one of the fortunate people who get to go to college, I greatly apprecaite and admire my profession. Even amongst my friends who have not gone to college, I have a certain sense of pride about my education. It has certainly been a hard struggle at times. Today, however, …

So I Am Paranoid After All

Well so I ended up skipping all my classes today (though I probably could have gone to my evening class, Computer Architecture) to go to the dentist fully expecting to have a cavity and was prepared to hear the words “root canal.” Sometime last week I asked Corey if she …

Game Dev Is Awesome & A Rant

Man I gotta say CS378 – Game Development is one addicting class :) I spent far too long tonight putting the finishing touches on my demo level that is due tomorrow than I did studying Spanish (the other extreme). I have a nice little level, too, though the music I …

Roll That Beautiful Bean Footage

Well last weekend was all in all a good one. After Friday’s amazging stroke of luck, we went home Saturday morning. We had to leave in the morning so I could stop by the eye-glass peeps to get my new glasses. We almost had to turn around because they neglected …

225!

What a surprising and amazing end to a somewhat mediocre week! Today (err Friday, looking at the time) was the first time since the summer that Anthony and I have started Friday night bowling. And what a turn out. We didn’t expect as many people from our work to show …

Crap.

I have to say, if my day were embodied in one word…well, it would probably not be crap. Though crap played an important role in my day. Starting first with the bus that arrived late and full forcing me to wait for the second bus. Ok so I actually probably …
