A trip to the library.

I should have taken care of this at the beginning of the semester. There is a fitness class that would give me access to the women's locker room, where I can take a shower. I emailed the dept. about enrolling, no response. I walked all over campus trying to find the P.E. dept. offices, and it turns out the professor that I needed to speak to wasn't available. I emailed, no response. I needed a shower badly today, and did not want to drive across town for it, so I just snuck the hell in there when no one was looking. It was easy. I cased the joint last Friday, and it was easy to see that not many people hung around there, and even less people know who is authorized to go in and out. I noticed a fitness class in session across the hall, however, so it would serve me well to find the times when they meet so as to avoid coming across any of the students or the instructors, who are most likely to recognize that I belong there.

Yay! My kernel got updated and now I have sound!

Couldn't pass this one up: Historical Encounters with The Stupid

"On two occasions, I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage

I had an interview today for an Excel position that went ok, but gave me a very bad vibe. It would be bad for my mental health to go into details, but one thing I did notice was some sort of difficulty connected with trying to maintain eye contact for a long period of time; slight pain and difficulty focusing. I was extremely agitated after I left, even though I think I made a good impression, and I am certainly qualified, a bit over-qualified, perhaps. The interviewer called me a "rocket scientist." No. Anyways, it requires answering phones to "angry customers," as the interviewer put it, and the aftermath of the interview assured me that I cannot handle that, so I will turn it down.

This evening, I've been working on a short paper on programming languages as part of the interview process for a student assistant position with a local government agency. All employers should require papers in lieu of interviews. I'm certain I'll wow them. I also have an interview tomorrow for a position in the local college library, and received a call this evening from another government agency about upcoming interviews. The interviews come all at once.

I did some grocery shopping today and was quite proud of the low-sodium selection I came out with.

I heard on the homeless vine that a local organization was giving out motel vouchers, but they prioritize families, the elderly, and the disabled, so there's no way in hell I will get one.

Sacramento is colder than I thought it would be. Someone said something about 80-degree temperatures in Southern California on the radio yesterday! I think the air is too bad in much of Socal for me, but I'm also thinking that I don't think I want to stay here forever. I've been thinking about moving to Watsonville, Ca, in the future, which I am familiar with due to its adjacency to Santa Cruz. I'll have to see what the job scene is like.

Hot with crunchy crust that is NOT doughy underneath the pizza sauce, rice cheese, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, and sauce that is not too sweet.

I study Arabic, French, Russian, and music. Seeing as how a career is generally little more than a glorified slave status for serving the rich, I have little desire for one.

I was suckered into majoring in Astrophysics via a series of lies by omission. I wanted to be an Astrophysicist (specializing in stellar evolution), so my studies were definitely related to my career goals.

Tenaciously holding on to things that I would benefit from letting go of. I'm not just holding on to them, though; they're holding on to me in a way.

I would def erase them. It was just today that I was taking a break from studying and an ugly memory flashed across my mind, seemingly of its own accord, and fucked up my mood just like that. These random moments of depression, dirtiness, repulsion, whatever...they're just not worth it keeping memories. This type of shit doesn't make anyone stronger; that's a lie and a cheap consolation prize wrapped into one. Random violent images and the occasional nightmare; where is my strength?

It is not possible to eliminate all measurements of time. Change itself is the measure of time, for the concept of time is meaningless without change. As long as there is still a sun rising, plants flowering, and atoms decaying, we will continue to have measurements of time. Clocks and calenders are merely neat interfaces that provide the illusion of exactitude.

I named my first car Prince Rillian, after the character in the C.S. Lewis book The Silver Chair.
