Sorry for not posting in a while. I am still adjusting to being back in school.
I would say I am more comfortable being here than I was last week. The first week was a bit of a shock. In terms of school, I think I’m in the calm before the storm. None of my classes have really assigned any work. Well, I guess I could be reading my CPSC 352 text, but it’s no biggy. I’m expecting that two weeks from now, I’ll be deep into work, though I’m hoping it won’t be the case.
Let’s see what else… strangely, even though I get more TV channels here than at home, I’m watching less TV. I know I now have channels like CNN, TLC, etc. but I still forget once in a while they’re available to me. I love CNN, it’s the best channel for news.
Now I’ve said this before and I’m going to say it again. I am still very much stunned by the sight of all these girls on campus. I worked a year and a half at EA, and that skewed my perspective on what realistic female to male ratio are. Here at UBC, nearly 90% of girls are between the ages of 18-24. It also seems that almost all those ladies are super hot…. ha ha ha…
I will leave you with a few links to enjoy:
www.drunkcyclist.com – definitely not a site to be surfing on at work, however, it contains an excellent collection of free porn (no popup ads, no crap), a rarity these days
www.paulkatcher.com – undoubtedly one of the best personal web sites I’ve ever visited; Paul’s site is like mine in every way except it’s well-written, more funny, and better looking; his site contains the most interesting links I’ve ever had the chance to visit, they literally can suck hours out of your day.
IS THIS FOR REAL?
I read this on imdb.com.
Bald Ben Affleck’s toupee secret has been shockingly revealed when his hairpiece flew off at a party, according to press reports. The Pearl Harbor hunk, who is dating Latina babe Jennifer Lopez, had his secret revealed at a party when he and fellow actor Vince Vaughn started play-fighting and his carefully concealed hairpiece flew up in the air, British newspaper the Daily Star claims. A source says, “Ben was embarrassed. But he was with friends and begged them to keep his secret. He’s very private when it comes to his hair loss. He hasn’t even broken the news to girlfriend Jennifer Lopez yet. But his baldness has been the talk of Hollywood ever since he flipped his wig.” A friend adds, “Ben’s very vain. He’s had close to $50,000 worth of dental caps to improve his smile.”
WHOA… NEW DIGS
Well, I’m posting this from my new home at St. John’s College at UBC. There was a hiccup with internet access, but it’s all good now. Virtually all my stuff is moved in and I just need to organize a bit now.
It was very weird after dinner with my parents tonight. After the meal, I gathered my crap together and stuffed it into the car. My dad then drove me to UBC. This was exactly what happened on Sundays for five straight years between 1992-1997. And these weren’t happy memories either. During the years 1992-1995, I was taking inhumanly tough course loads, so I was always stressed out about getting work done. Having to stop work to have dinner and then driving back to UBC meant I lost about two hours of valuable work time. When I would get back to UBC, I’d always be in a hurry to unpack and start work again.
As I look back upon that, it was insane to feel that much stress. It was really unhealthy. In 1996 and 1997, my course loads were much lighter, so on those Sundays that I was at home, I’d be watching TV before dinner, my dad would drive me back to UBC, and then I’d continue to watch at UBC. What a world of difference.
Of course, the stressful memories are the ones that stand out.
Grad school is a bit strange, there’s a possibility I won’t have any grad classes at all this week. I’ll just have my one undergrad class to go to. I’m hoping this is the case, since I need a few days just to adjust to being in a new place. Man, I just moved in early June!
I wonder if I’ll be able to fall asleep easily tonight. It being a new room and new bed, I’ll probably be a bit uncomfortable. It’s strange how I used to get a new room every year, and I didn’t even blink, but after five years of being out, it’s a big deal now.
Ok, that’s it for now. Wish me luck on this new wild adventure.
