math rehab...

uhg... i spent.. pretty much all day brushing up on my math skillz... my calc has suffered from non-use of nearly 3 years... as a results my diff eq is also weak... so today was spent brushing up on that pretty much from 10 till 5... at that point my math brain was worn out... but it was a satisfying day actually... nice to use my brain instead of letting it rot... so i look forward to using it far more in the near future...

for supper i made samuel adams fajitas, using the receipe i found on the sam adams web site... they were suprisingly spicy... in the future i will use the receipe, at least in part, for any mexican i make, to season the meat... get away from the flavour packets... not that there is anything wrong with the packets.. just i like doing stuff myself...

i also bought a mango to try in the smoothies i have for breakfast... to date i've been using oranges (or now clementines), ice, and a thing of yogurt.. usually peach or strawberry... sometimes i add a spalsh of milk or what ever juice i have at the time... i enjoy them... and i like mango a lot so i thought it's be a worth a shot...

long day tomorrow... first meeting of my independent study, i hope he feels i've done decent enough amount of work... i really did try today... and then it's my first day of labs... which should be very interesting... wish me luck...

decorating...

well, things are going pretty well... i think i can stop spending money soon... the last week has been very expensive...

classes will be fine... my TA spot is in a lab so I don't have to lecture, jsut help students if the equipemnt gives them shit, and i have office hours to answer questions on lab reports, which i also have to grade... it'll be an experience...

now that i have all of my furniture, i'm starting to think about decorating... like getting some pictures on the barren walls... pictures i like i found to be kind of pricey... so i thought i have some picutres i've taken i woudln't mind having enlarged and framed... shutterfly jsut so happens ot be having a promo period and i get some pictures as large as 8x10 for free... and they offer printing services as large as 20x30... so if the 8x10's look good i'll get a couple 20x30's to frame... it'llbe pretty neato...

Here are the pictures i'm considering... favouring grey reflection and belgian bridge... also liekthe colour sunset...

life as a troll...

i've been busy moving to east lansing, well okemos... i'm mostly settled in... i have enough to survive... i'm sleeping on my sofa... i need to buy a bed tomorrow... i'm buying a used desk... i pick it up saturday...

my apartment is very quiet... i find msyelf afriad t make noise in fear of disturbing others... with any luck i'll get used to it over time...

i'm mostly set up for school... i think... i have my id card my parking pass, my emails accounts, my office keys...

i'm scheduled for a couple classes... i only need two classes, max is 3 three... right now i'm in a stat class and a super secret independent study i'm not allowed ot talk about... shhh! I'm also teacher assitant for the electromagnetic compatibility lab... shouldn't be too bad...

my parking pass allows me to park in faculty lots... that makes me feel special...

i have an ofice in the research center... it's shared with other... but having an office makes me feel special...

been spenidng most of the evneing's with phil and hal... that's been enjoyable... tonight i was alone... i wne to look for beds... only stopped at one place... he told me to get it home i'd have to tie it to the top of my car... cause the bed i'd buy wasn't pricey enough to have it delievered... going to a few other palces tonight...

dsl was supposed to be activated thursday... it wasn't, i'll have to call in the morning... grr to them...

i wan tot see hostel... i may have ot go alone... i don't have anyone here that shares my lust for the ultra violence...

i had american psycho on tonight... i didn't really watch it much though... doing other stuff... i had not seen it ina ong while... nearly 9 months i think? maybe?

since i don't hava desk, my desk top is not set up yet... and until today i had issues getting satellite receptoiin soi had been listening to cd's... they're annoying short..i feel i'm getting up every 30 seconds to swap discs.. i think i'll burna dvd of mp3s... that'll help...

anyways... i should consider sleep...
