I worked from 8:00 AM until midnight. A solid sixteen hours. And now I’m wiped out. Though over the course of today, some really good things happened: I met Paul, my Apple Account Exec, and some new people in ITS. Which will come in handy. And Paul was really chill. So all is good on [...]
But lately, I’ve been wondering for how long you’ve been planning this.
The other night, after dining with a bunch of people at Usdan, six of us went to Indian Hill to walk around and watch the sun set. Here, Michelle and I are transfixed as we watch the sun set over the hills surrounding the valley. (We’re pretty much right across the street from my house.) [...]
I got lots of stuff done today. Scheduled some house maintenance with Physical Plant, contacted our house daddy (I don’t know the official term for the University staff member who oversees the houses), worked a full day at Help Desk, had some genuine bonding time with fellow Help Deskers, and got my bike’s brakes repaired.

I just tried to watch Superbad but found that I couldn’t. Terrible movie, up there with Napoleon Dynamite. Actually, the two are similar in that they’re both about the socially-inept, loser-kinda high school kid. I hate those movies. Hate them!

The combination of The Album Leaf song “Malmo” with the crickets chirping outside my window is magical.
I forgot to mention that tonight’s meal at MoCon was the last one ever. Tomorrow they’re opening Usdan (the new university center) for meals. We stood on the two brass circles in the floor tonight and tested out the MoCon echo. It was really crazy, and I wonder if they designed it like that. Your [...]
I am back at Wesleyan. First night back was a bit lonely; it’s just me and Janet alone in this huge house, and only Jia was around. But earlier today, I went to dinner with Janet and Jia and Thom, and after that we saw Emily, Joan, Adam, and Dominic, and I met Adam, a [...]
I was driving home from Boston/Milton/lunch with Chris yesterday and, on Sycamore Street in Holbrook, we came across some construction workers installing a new utility pole. A tall, wooden utility pole that they were apparently raising up from a leaning position at about a 55º angle to the ground. Due to impeccable timing on both [...]
