Summer in review! [Sep. 30th, 2001|11:53 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, ]

All my fellow U-Dubbers seem to be writing summer in review posts, so here goes mine before it turns midnight and I turn into a pumpkin homework robot:
  • worked on LJ nearly non-stop until the last week or so of summer
  • went jet skiing with Chuck and Kenji an uncountable number of times
  • traveled a bunch: cross country with Blythe & Whitaker, San Jose, San Francisco, (won some Webby Awards, got interviewed by Sam Donaldson) San Diego ... met a bunch of cool people.
  • hung out with Nick and AHS buddies in Portland for 3 weeks or so
  • bought a guitar and started learning how to play after my dad started to teach me at home
  • started running and doing situps/pushups with regularity ... along with my disdain for cooking and spending time/money eating out, lost a lot of weight and got in shape.
  • bought a new bike... went on 48 mile bike ride around lake.
The only sad thing (and in retrospect, the most notable event) was Blythe and I breaking up. But she remains a wonderful friend.

I start classes tomorrow ... Syntax I (Linguistics), Linear Optimization (Math), and German 111. Evan's in the linguistics class I just found out, and Chuck's in my math class... cool. I'm asking for pain taking another language class, one that I don't even need to graduate even (just need any credits now... all my requirements except one writing credit are fulfilled).

6 months (2 quarters) and I'm outta here. Where, though, I don't know.

if you're looking for sympathy...

I have no sympathy for all my friends and friends of friends and friends-of-friends-of-friends (I think you fit in that last one, cause I am friends with Shana and she is in turn friends with Chuck, who I met once) at UW or any late starting WA school at home (home being Gig Harbor)....

cause I have been in classes since August 21!!!

No whining on the school thing Brad. LJ, yes. School, no.

JK, have fun in classes tomorrow.

This will actually be my second linguistics class. Hopefully it's a notch more interesting than the previous one which was still enjoyable, despire the boring professor.
