I had no idea we were so close to the end of this quarter already. Sarah's recent comment made me look at the calendar and realize there are only 2.5 weeks left.

In other news,

Watched a bunch of TV today with the roommates, whilst using my vocab quizzer for tomorrow's test.

I did 3 of the 4 math problems. The last one can screw me. My life would be made better by sleeping instead of worrying about it, so that I shall do.

I wrote a recommendation letter for Scott for grad school. I think he'll want me to rewrite it, though. Heh.

<dorknews>I researched how Dreamcast games are laid out on the CD. Clever. New Kernel traffic. User-space file systems... Neat. Been fighting with parts of InnoDB. Overall I really like it, but there are big areas where it's still kicking my ass. I must master it. Much depends on it, oh yes. Played with setting locale-gen and starting gnome and other programs with LANG=de_DE. If only libgdkxft rendered non-ASCII characters! Bleh. Must wait for GTK 2.0 and Pango I guess. Screw computers. Grrrr. So fucking frustrating.</dorknews>

Lack of motivation lately. But it's a new type of lack of motivation! I can now sense the return of motivation and energy, but it's just not available now. It's almost as if I were able to push away a few dozen things, the motivation would return. Maybe after this 2.5 weeks. Hopefully sooner.

I'm depending on a bunch of people for different things right now because I have no motivation to do them myself. I hope they come through for me, because I probably wouldn't even notice if they didn't. But if they did, I'd notice and it'd make me happy.

I've been talking to a girl a lot lately (hi!) that classifies all her emotions as either happy or sad. It's a somewhat amusing generality.

I'm going to bed now.

So tired

Went to both hours of Linguistics. I fell asleep 2 or 3 times in the second hour. I'd wake up when my head would hit the pole beside me.

Skipped math. Just turned my homework in. When I was walking into the building I opened the door and stepped back and held it as a guy inside exited. A girl that was also entering the building then thought I was holding the door for her, and stopped opening her door to walk through the one that I was supposedly holding for her. I couldn't really do anything before they ran into each other. Heh. I'm so smooth, or something.

Just did my useless Internet homework for German. I'm in MGH. There's this incredibly cute chick across from me at this table doing her Arabic homework. Impressive.
