Even if I was totally fluent in German, I'd still have nothing interesting to say. So, henceforth I shall refrain from posting in German when I'm under a temporary delusion that I might have something of substance to share.

Like now!

So last night after writing some neat code and finding a costume I went to two parties ... kinda. I left both about as soon as I got there. I suppose I just didn't feel like interacting in a crowd situation and they're just not my favorite thing to do. Low mobility, visibility, hard to hear (hearability?) ... it's a tough environment to meet people in and I don't know that many people anyway. But whatever, I suppose. Who needs friends? I'll be leaving here in 177 days anyway. Where? I dunno. Doing what? Oh, I dunno. Have I applied for graduating senior status yet? Oh, no...

Woke up at eight this morning. Did most my homework, did a bunch of LJ work, went running, cleaned room/house ... overall productive. And then database servers all started dying. They got to the point were they weren't responding. I had to go down to InterNAP. I brought my camera .... I was going to walk around Seattle and take pictures if I got too stressed. I never got a chance... had to go back home and keep working. But Dormando found his bug that caused everything to die, so that makes me happy... at least we know why shit went to hell. And now I get to rebuild servers! But I'm not angry ... just kinda 'blah'-ish. I want somebody to help me. No, scratch that... I don't want to do anything.

As much as I talk about "work", I don't feel that's a big part of my life. It's just all I have to talk about.

Arrrgh. But I'm not depressed. I used to be. (I think exercise is to thank.) Lately I'm just in this funk where I keep doing what I'm doing because it works okay and I have no obvious alternatives. I'll keep doing homework and working and eventually I'll be done.

I'm going on a cruise with my family this xmas break. That should be fun.

I've heard people say exercise can get one out of a "blah" streak. I do know that I've felt great after any workout...tired...but surprisingly good.

Where does the cruise leave from/go to?
I hear/see cruise ships leaving/returning every week. They always look like fun, but... You're stuck on a boat for 3-10 days. What is there to do besides lay around?

dude, the boat is like a small city. there are movie theatres, bars, clubs, lounges, basketball courts, pools, hot tubs, mini-golf, skeet shooting, gambling, performances, tons of food, you name it....

hard to hear (hearability?)

consulting the vocabulary buddha, i believe audibility is the word you're looking for.

than again, i could be blissfully on crack.
