Friday, October 26, 2007


Where have I been? Busy! I started my new ( awesome) job and have been immersed with the new feelings of being in the city everyday and being around intelligent professional people, and also, let's not forget, learning the ropes at my new place of employment.

I am quite happy to work downtown, to have an office with a nice view of the lake, and it helps that I really enjoy the job. It is all perfect. I have everything I have wanted for a long time. I live in the city of my dreams, I have the professional life I have been searching for and I'm so in love with Mr. Pessimistic. Life couldn't be better... except... it's October.

Which means, November, December,January and February are just around the corner. I hate the winter and I hate snow. But I refuse to give up the Midwest for sunnier places because I feel experiencing all the seasons is important. Is it?

It's getting colder, and I'm turning more and more sad. Snow will be falling soon, and the impending doom of muddy shoes and cold nights is upon us. This is the only explanation I can come up with as to why I have been so down lately, when everything in my life has been so up. I can't wait for Spring, already, and winter hasn't even really started yet.

See you in Spring!

Birthdays and Heartache

Yesterday was probably the best birthday I've had in five years. I heard from everyone I knew. It was great. I got to eat seafood for dinner, and Andrea took me to see the 3D version of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. It's already one of my favorite movies, but in 3D it's unbelievable.

The Indians ended their post-season to Boston, and I'm kind of depressed. I don't know if I'm supposed to be angry at Cleveland for not showing up, and trying harder, or if I'm pissed at Boston and their lame-o, multi-billion dollar franchise. I stated in a post elsewhere that their fans are souless, fake, and a bunch of posers. They really are no better than Yankees fans. They're just a bunch of bandwagoneers who follow a souless team. Bostons budget could run Iraq for two years. The players are essentially former Indians (Manny Ramirez, Coco Crisp) who took the compliments, advice, and instruction of the Cleveland coaches along with the best training in MLB, and made it fatten their egos, and stupid heads. Ughkk, it disgusts me. Boston fans are the worst. At least yankees fans wear their 'entertained-by-the-power-of-money' vibe on their shoulders. Boston though, is just the anti-yankees bandwagon. Boston fans claim this whole Irish heritage thing that makes no sense to me because everybody born east of the Mississippi River from the early eighteen hundreds on is fractionally Irish. Boston fans are about as Irish as George Bush is black. See you next year Boston. Go Tribe, go Cleveland.. but until then, go Rockies!

Great news, I got an email a little over and hour ago from my professor, and apparently I did well enough on my ECT pre-finals that I don't have to take the final. That takes a huge weight off of my shoulders. I was going to be studying all weekend otherwise. Looks like I can enjoy my birthday weekend stress-free. Cheers to me!

Finals and other newsness'

Finals are this upcoming week. It's going to be a turbo stressful weekend. I had to attend the senior students IEEE project competition where I got to see some interesting stuff. Nothing to original though. I think three seperate groups did something that utilized a sensor to alarm cars when they're getting close to another vehicle. Probably the most boring, expected and obvious project ever. However, a guy who did a project without a group had a joystick connected to a mock UZI on a tripod (turret) which he could aim with the joystick and fire. We were supposed to ask the different projects a series of questions our instructor supplied us with, and consider ideas for our senior projects. I'm open to suggestions for anything. I was kind of thinking I'd make a theremin/ondes martenot, but it may be to time consuming and expensive. Input on possible electro-gadgets would be greatly appreciated. I was very disappointed when I found out one of my ideas had been capitalized on by some other joe looking to cash in on the adult novelty market. ("Goodbye interactive blowup doll with responsive software, you are no longer my possible intellectual property, but instead some schmoes meal ticket for life") What can you do? Ideas folks, gimme' ideas...
