off to class

we were told the first week of geography that normally we don't have class on thursdays, despite what the official schedule says... but today we do: I have to go in and "meet" my TA. pretty lame. so that'll take like 15 minutes, then I'm free for an hour and a half before music class.

today's projects.

class was extremely boring today. two girls to my left were talking the whole time. I wanted to punch them and break their jaws. i refrained.

now i'm learning all there is to know about time zones and how libc handles them. my goal is to write a perl module that handles time zones wonderfully, because all the existing ones out there suck (I checked).

livejournal really needs timezone support finally, especially the new to-do list feature, so i figure it's time I do it correctly.

my other goal for the day is to learn some more vi ... i'm trying to wean myself from emacs

torn

Today's been weird ... there are over a dozen projects I want to be working on right now. I can't stay focused. I keep switching between them and not getting anything substantial done in any one project.

Mark mailed me though and gave me some direction. When Mark mails me I feel like I'm on a mission and have to race to finish it... psychs me up. :-)
