Fire and Workload

There used to be a large dumpster next to my apartment. There was also a ton of garbage that didn’t fit in it piled next to it. Last week, the garbage next to it caught fire and caused the above. The picture was actually taken after the fire had died down quite substantially.
So its been a busy few weeks. I’ve settled into my apartment. I’ve spent entirely too much on books. I’ve had a second interview with Intel (and will probably hear the result this week. I’m not overly optimistic). I’ve discovered that this semester is going to be very painful. I finished reading The Man Who Fell to Earth (good, but certainly not on my list of required reading) and From a Buick 8 (fun like all most of Stephen King’s work, but also like much of his work, it lacks a feeling of closure or real understanding). I’ve partied to much, and worked too little. I’ve yelled spanish nonsense at random people from a car. I’ve played miniature golf. I’ve cooked. I’ve played miniature golf. I’ve discovered that the most interesting and most attractive girl in the Computer Science program is no longer in the field, and hence my classes. I’ve gone to Canada. I’ve spent a lot of money. I’ve met a lot of people. I’ve forgotten a lot of names.
Yes, its been a busy few weeks. Here’s to a few more.
