Senior year isn't supposed to be this hectic.

Anyway, I'm on my way out to go clothes shopping. I hate clothes shopping. But I need a suit for upcoming interviews. Lockheed Martin is flying me out to DC, so it would probably make a bad impression if I showed up in jeans and a Copyleft GNOME tshirt.

I applied to HelixCode, but they're looking to hire in the near future -- no we'll-hire-you-for-next-May practices like larger companies. Which means if I really want to work there I'll have to ignore the job offers from everyone else and sit on my haunches until next semester.

I've done a lot of thinking lately about where I want to work and what I want to do, and hacking on GNOME full time comes out near the top of the list. So I suppose I should start proving my worth by sending patches. :)

In other news, the first round of exams were this week. Social psych wasn't too bad, and I kicked ass in poetry. (Lots of "fluffy" courses this semester, I'm finishing up a minor in English Studies.)

I've played racquetball every day this week instead of every-other-day, and it has had a remarkably negative impact on the quality of my game. I wish I could insert a chart here, but basically my energy level is monotonically decreasing.

And I'm incredibly jealous: I missed the Great Race (10k) here last weekend because I was visiting my sister for her birthday, and Melissa ran it in 55 minutes. (It's been a goal of mine for practically forever to get my sedentary butt through a 10k in under an hour.)

Well, I think that's enough senseless rambling for one day.
