School is going OK, though I don't get to sleep tonight. *sigh* Always fun when that happens -- I've got a response to Taivalsaari's overview of Object-Orientation techniques to write and chances are it's not going to flow like water from my fingertips.
I've been a bad, bad boy, and have started eating some of the junk that got me into trouble in the first place(things like smoothies and a portabella mushroom) due to warped time schedules. Very bad, but hopefully I'll be able to curb it before it gets out of control and I gain another 10 pounds. The weird thing is that I look in the mirror and I don't really look the weight the scale says. Very odd.
Lots of interesting stuff going on which may or may not be good. I had a phone interview today which went well, and resulted in me getting an invitation to fly out and do a second-round interview. It should be very interesting -- I didn't expect that I would be able to do all that well on the phone, but nervous energy tends to do odd things.
My great-uncle George died last night. It seems that I'm losing older relatives faster and faster these days. He went fairly peacefully, a heart attack in his sleep. I'll miss him a lot -- he was one of those people who was always just quietly happy, watching Anajean go about life with her usual zest and exuberance. And I can't even go to the funeral because of school. Such is life, I guess.
Saw Emilia tonight, which was fun. She's always in motion towards the completion of something, even when just doing the simple stuff like buying food for a friend. I wonder what she's like when she relaxes completely? I really hope I don't fuck this up as much as I have the last ones. I suspect that whatever will happen will happen regardless of what I think here, as that's just the way life works. I haven't truly scared one off for nearly a year, and somehow I don't think Emilia is easily scareable.
In general, this semester is not nearly as good as the last. I'm not sure why, but it's very disconcerting.
