Meltdown and Reboot

I haven't written in a while. It was because I had a really rough emotional rollercoaster ride that left me unable to care about anything as trivial as my website. Oh, and I had a lot of class work. So the situation, for the curious, was this thing with this girl, and it sucked and wasted my time, but I'm over it now and ready to move on.

So back on the update scene here's what's been going on. Class are keeping me busy. Got my first OS assignment back. I wasn't too pleased with the grade despite the fact that ours was the most efficient shell our grader had seen. Efficiency, that is definately one of my things. Still waiting to get into 240 but I figure that if it makes it to the end of the semester I can just say, "Hey, I did all the work, I got an A on the final, now give me my credit and let me go on my way."

TAing is a lot of work. More than I expected but the pay and helping people make it worth it. Today I did 4 hours worth of motion capture, but it came out surprisingly well for my first time. I can't wait to see how it turns out in the worlds. Mocap makes me really feel important. Like I have something special going for me. Let's hope that carries though.

Speaking of things going for me, GRE's went well, so now it must be time to apply to grad schools. This is going to be a tough choice to make if I have to. Free and in Boston, or with my friend where I think would be more my style?

But what do I really want to say today. I feel on top of the world. I used to hit pits and stay down. Especially near the beginning of the year. This year, I stumbled but got right back up. I'm the king of CMU in my mind again. Nothing is going to stop me when I make up my mind.

Let's keep this up, what else? BCal is turning out to be really successful. My calendar is keeping well scheduled and the mocap and aepi calendars are really taking off. Right now I'm working on adding a todo list which is something that I desperately need.

West Wing started yesterday. A bunch of us gathered to watch the 2 hours premier. I was worried it wouldn't live up to my high expectations but it exceeded them. Best show on TV. Damn straight, 3peat on best drama emmy.

There's bound to be something missed when I forget for this long. Oh well. What's important is writing this entry reminded me how great it feels to do this. I think often will really happen. How many times have I said that? We'll see. Later.
