as it really been another month? The time flies and I've been really busy. Well, that just means there is more to talk about and I should've been getting it out in small bits, but here goes....

The Big Decision and The Future

I decided to go to MIT. I didn't get the deal I talked about last time, but I was about ready to decide MIT anyway. So I'm very excited for my move. I'll mist things there. The most recent one that I remembered is the spring afternoons as the sun is setting and bagpipe music drifting over the hills.

I've applied to live in MIT graduate student housing. My top choice was some unfurnished apartments. It will be good because we have plenty of furniture at home for me to get, and that'll be nicer than dorm crap, and more mine. I don't find out what I get until May 19, that's the day after graduation, this Sunday, but I'll get to that.

Carly also decided to go to MIT, so that will be cool, being able to hang with my sister. I think we get along pretty well. The 4 years has been a big deal so we've never really been at the same place. I'm excited, because she can give me the low down on the stuff the undergrads learn that they don't tell me.

As far as the summer goes, I've got either this ILM internship or just chilling in Pittsburgh. I won't know until the same day, May 19, about that. I don't know whether I want it or not. On the one hand, ILM would be awesome and it is a great opportunity. Experiencing San Fransisco would be cool. On the other hand, it wouldn't be as a relaxing break as just staying here would be.

The daily nothing

Well, I don't have much to say today. I felt I should be writing more often, perhaps daily so this is a start. I had an Alice meeting. It was sort of sad to be thinking about handing off my code and stuff. I don't know what they are going to do with BVW next year. Randy's plan to move it all to the PTC sounds like it will kill it for the undergrads, a shame, but at least I made it. A girl emailed me about finding my website and the set game. It think it is cool that people like what I do. If you read this, hi, Kimberly. Anyway, I went and picked up my graduation tickets and signed the new card for Mark. As an advisor I didn't need much help from him because I had Randy, but I still needed to thank him for me getting it. It is true I wouldn't be here if not for Mark. Then I picked up my cap and gown. Finally my out of order story comes together as I went home and played some set with my new friend. She schooled me. It was pretty embarassing. I should practice. Got some grub, watched some West Wing, watched Memento, and then it was time to do "Senior stuff". By the way it was funny today when Dennis suggested his title should be "Señor research programner" instead of "Senior research programmer". Somewhere in the middle I was setting up my MIT computing account. There are some things they don't do really well. I like the system we have here. I'll call that the sucessful ramblings of a first daily entry. Let's see if this keeps on working. Prediction: no.
