The jig is up

Been happening to others, too. I'm out.

Summer is making a comeback

The temperature this morning was somewhere in the 50s, but when I went to class just before 2, it was in the mid 80s. Welcome back, old friend. The last 4 weeks of rain and clouds made me miss you.

One of the advantages (in one aspect) of having an on-campus, part time job is that you never work over, say.. 25-30 hours a week. Well, for the first time -- in my life, really -- I worked a full 40 hour week. And after doing so (to be honest, after like the second goddamned day) I completely understood why people don't like working 40 hour weeks. I had the routine of go to work -> come home -> shower -> sleep -> wake up -> repeat. Left very little free time to do anything.

Buuutt... now that that's over (and classes are starting up), I won't have to go through that ordeal until I graduate and have a real, proper job. At least when I start a career, those 40 hour weeks will actually be worthwhile, since I won't be making a pitiful 8.40 an hour (yay minimum wage!)

I can't believe I missed this game.

My god, I thought we were gonna be crushed by Columbus. Damn you, work, for making me miss this one

You know...

There's only one thing better than house sitting, and that's house sitting for someone that's rich. Just in the livingroom there's a 52" HDTV, all the consoles and many games for them, and a 7.1 surround sound system.

Man, I can't wait until I'm out of college and have a real job so I can live like this.

Finally, stable internet!

I cannot stress enough just how much I was missing real internet. While useful, tethering only goes so far -- the speeds were only 1-2mbit and Verizon's "unlimited" data package is really only like 5gb. Can't really do any torrenting/streaming video (atdhe is a godsend) on it...

But yay, back to Comcast's shittiness. I sure do love living in a tiny college town whose only options are Comcast and (very terrible) AT&T dsl!

Smartphone get!

Just picked up a Droid off craigslist and using it for internet. It's amazing how far phones have come in such a short time; this thing is like a super computer compared to my last phone (Samsung Rogue). I've already installed a plethora of apps, customized it with Launcherpro, rooted it, overclocked it, and did whatever else us cool kids with Android phones do. One sweet thing I've done is installed SetCPU, and set it up so when the screen is turned off, e.g. when the phone is locked/in my pocket, it underclocks the processor. It saves a ton on battery life

Hopefully now I'll be able to post more and check all the other blogs out more often.
