i am double minded about exactly what i want this webpage to be. last year, last chapter rather, i wrote more frequently and so had different pages for each journal. but now i don’t write as much as i used to before. the content, at least i think so, has changed too. more about what’s going on in the intellectual world rather than in the physical world. and hence, like before, there isn’t as much to write about. it’s not everyday that you experience something uplifting or depressing that changes you profoundly. on the other hand, when i started this journal, the main focus was on everyday happenings so that i could read it years from now and relive the so-called “good old days” observation : all the computer science professors at carleton seem to be afflicted with the so-called SCQD; the So-Called Quotation Disorder. None of them can define a term without adding, ‘and this is the so-called blahblah’ at the end of the sentence. reichstein, li, sawchuk, and oomen, to name a few, are victims of this heinous disorder.
so.. 20th was a sunday. i woke up early [heh] at 10 and went to take a shower. the house-mates were still asleep.. atleast i didn’t see ’em. last night, all three of them had gone out and come back late at night [partying prolly] and sunday morning were created so one can catch up on sleep. and i whole-heartedly agree with this idea.
the original plan for breakfast was to go downstairs to the kitchen, nibble some cornflakes, gulp milk, grab a pepsi, and then leave for Baseline station. however, i was running late and we had decided to meet at 11 @ SouthKeys. to cut corners and make good use of the precious little time [ever since haa bragged about how punctual he is (that day we went to DealsDirect to buy the Soul Mp3 Player) i’ve been consciously trying to be as punctual as humanly possible], i grabbed a juicePack, drank it, and took a can of pepsi out of the refrigerator to drink on the way to Baseline.
the bus schedule is horrible on sundays and so 118Hurdman was not due in under 10 minutes like it usually is. i decided to walk the 8-minute walk to Baseline instead and then caught 95Orleans. it takes only 20 minutes or so to reach BayviewStation and i spent that time listening to Ayumi Hamasaki – I Am and reading Money In The Bank. It took only 10 minutes to reach Greenboro from Bayview and thus, at 11:03 i was at SouthKeys :)
we went to futureShop to buy dooh’s brand new compaq pressario laptop.. what an awesome machine : AMD Athlon 1.2 Ghz, 256 KBL2 Cache, 14.1″ Display, 256 133SDRAM, 20 GB Hardrive, DVD/CDRW Combo, 32 MB S3Twister VidCard, with a TouchPad. it took us much much longer than usual to process the order because their system crashed and none of the terminals were working.
i was supposed to leave for BayShore by 130 but it was 210 when i climbed into the OTrain. no breakfast yet except for the 355 mL of Pepsi. met foz and sketched the answer for question 7 [285 assgn]. the bus took me straight to Bayshore where i met baka^2 in front of the GAP Store.
the rest to be continued…. one assignment due tomorrow [bought the book today cuz rainMan failed to copy it again and will return it tomorrow.. one textbook = $130 !!! insanity] and then two assignments and two tests next week.. aieeee.
jasmine is in carleton too.. and in compSci.. who woulda thunk it.
