So, my first week of classes went pretty well. I really enjoy the professors for a few of them, and seem to be able to tolerate the rest so far. I'm looking forward to getting all these prereqs over with, though.
My parents came for a visit yesterday and we went shopping for general goods along with mikeszcz. Was a lot of fun. I think I've reached the point, though, where I feel pretty independent of my parents. I miss them and miss home and all, but it's certainly not like two summers ago when I was homesick and really wanted to go back. I want to continue on with my life... I may hate where I am now, but I want to go forward, not back. I do realize that some of my friends feel quite homesick right now, and I remember what that was like, but I just don't feel it anymore.
Looking back, I can't believe that I'm actually here at Carnegie Mellon now. It seemed so hard and so far away...
Now I need to start making real choices. I need to decide which jobs to persue, which to let go. I need to figure out who I want to be associating with and when. It's definitely a different game now.
I really want to get started working on gabber2 some more, but getting stuff running under Jaguar is harder than it should be. Fink still isn't completely updated for it, and I really don't know what the problems are to be able to fix them. I still don't have Gabber working under OS X either... sigh.
I was interviewed as the developer of the month for jabber.org. Cool. Funny that this was probably my least productive Jabber month ever ;)
