Leaving now to visit Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh on Friday. If they'd give me some money, I think I'd be able to survive there ... especially since I found out about Umi and a bunch of other supposedly really good sushi places. http://pittsburgh.citysearch.com/profile/11356750/

I want another vacation!

Oh, and I am really enjoying the feng shui job I did with my room. It's not necessarily great by any means but it is a vast, vast improvement. Working is a lot nicer.

Whoooh. I'm a wee bit nervous about tomorrow.

I'm trying to reorganize my room/work area into something more comfortable, open, and feng-shui-ified. It's fun! Lots of the stuff in feng shui is common sense (no, not the stuff about deflecting chi, at least not to me) -- pointing your desk so you can see who is coming to see you at the door gives you the confidence that no one is sneaking up on you and makes you feel better. Similarly instead of working while staring into a wall, which makes you feel confined, point yourself so your line of vision is welcomed by free space, so you feel free likewise. At least those two seem to work pretty well for me so far, unless it's just that I really wanted them to work since my room seemed so crappy and dismal before :\

College admittance decisions were supposed to make the job of choosing where to attend (and so how much debt to accrue, etc) a lot easier. But it hasn't. Argh.


So what have I just been working on? A little python script to help me relearn the bit of Python I once knew, to let me check out the jabber.py python jabber libs (motto: Documentation? We don't need to documentation! -- or something like that ;) ) and to form part of an ideological basis that would allow me to write a component that posts to all of your, well, my, different weblogs. So i'd just send a message to joggergato.jabberserver and through the various wonders that exist, i'd have all my various and redundant journals updated simultaneously. Yum. I call it joggergato right now since it posts to jogger and advogato. how utterly creative.

Oops. That was premature. Stinky feets.

I saw. And now I confirm. Woop!
