New Beginnings

Well, it's my last night in Bishop's Landing, and that means I won't have the internet for a to-be-determined amount of time, so I figured I ought to record a post.

Moving is always an interesting experience. Going through your stuff you get to see a small representation of your existance over the period of time that you lived there. Of course there's the lifting and cleaning and whatnot, but that comes tomorrow. Some people look at moving as an end, but I prefer to look at it as a beginning. So, as I leave here, I'm looking forward to the beginning of a new era in my life, and I hope it's as pleasant for all involved as it will be for me.

I just thought everybody should know...

...I love Jalapeño Pringles.

Yes, I love them, like a noche bonita en una cantina con amigos;
como los sueños, los besos, y la musica.

Which is to say, quite a lot.

The Hardest Semester of My Life and The Great Apartment Hunt

Well, folks, the hardest semester of my life has finally come to a close. I'm kinda curious about those grades, but barring any huge surprises, they should be alright. I'm more just happy to have that out of the way. Time for some enjoying myself...sleeping in, outdoor activities, reading for pleasure, late night halo sessions, going to work all the time. Oh, well, four out of five ain't bad. While the semester was pretty hard, it wasn't that bad, and I learned a lot. I got through it anyway, so I'm just looking forward to the upcoming summer.

In other news, it appears that the great apartment hunt has also come to an end. This morning I put down a deposit for a one-bedroom at Aspen Village Apartments, to which I have referred at any given time as Ashton Village, Aspen Grove, Ashton Villas, and a number of other exciting combinations. I'm a little paranoid, because the complex is somewhat old, but I have no reason not to be optimistic.

Smooth and Intruiging!

Yeah, internet petitions never work, but it comforts me to know somebody else cares.

Gregg Easterbrook back at ESPN

Although I'm sure none of you who read this care, once-embattled writer Gregg Easterbrook, who writes my favorite internet column, Tuesday Morning Quarterback, has been re-hired by ESPN, who fired him in 2003 for saying Jews are good with money, or something like that. He spent two seasons writing at, but ESPN has apparently gotten over it, and lured him back. This is good, because NFL wouldn't let him be as critical of them as he had been, but bad, because I prefer the tasteful white and blue color scheme of to the harsh yellow and red of ESPN's page2.

Anyway, if you're interested, you can find his current (and pre-fallout, it seems) stuff here, his stuff here, and a nice summary of the whole situation here (you don't have to subscribe; click the arrow and through the ad).
