Day in review [Sep. 27th, 2000|08:20 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
  • went to classes. enjoyed them all except my databases class.... the guy teaching it doesn't do that great of a job and the class is notably bored. having a lot of database experience, i see what he's trying to say sometimes, or where he's trying to go, but he does a really bad job of it, imho. sad. i've seen bad professors mess up really easy and fun subjects and i've seen good professors make really hard and boring subjects fun and exciting.... the professor quality makes or breaks the class.
  • worked on some livejournal things in between classes
  • my linguistics lecture --- sat near the back today. i was shocked at how many girls are in that class! being in the CS department i don't see many girls, so seeing a 200+ person lecture with 50-60% girls was astounding.
  • hooked up more rooms with phones, and redid a bunch of the old sloppy wiring. eli's phone line quality is reportedly much improved.
  • went to the bank and deposited rent money: $3,600 in checks and $400 in cash (erik's all about the benjamins, it seems). i then transferred the money to our slumlord's account.
  • made some pizza and ate it with scott.
  • time for livejournal.

    Re:

    It's not.. that... bad. :P I dunno.. come use my phone and tell me how it equates. Course, if mine does suck it could just be the phone, which I intend to replace soon.

    Re: rent

    Yeah...but....that's still like $360 each!

    I mean, isn't there some sort of "volume discount" or something? ;)

    Being from the midwest as I am I don't exactly know what housing costs are up there in WA but I know I could live more cheaply down here with a few friends...

    Heck, this summer I shared an apartment with 3 friends for $150 the *whole summer.* But that was a super-extra-special deal and stuff...but it would normally have cost me around $175 a month. During the summer people are desperate to rent housing since the population is around cut in half without the school...

    Re: rent

    That's pretty standard, if not a little cheap even.

    My girlfriend pays around $560 per month for rent.
