My classes will start in a few days. This time around I'm taking two graduate level courses so the answer to the question "can I learn from my mistakes" seems to be "no." Anyway, I'm taking Quantum Field Theory and the Theory of Fundamental Interactions. Surprisingly, the course that makes me more nervous is the Probability Theory 1. I never really enjoyed this particular subject and the lecturer being a legendary hard-ass doesn't make me feel any better.

Oh, and I got some preliminary results from my experiment! At this point, it's largely a low-resolution scan through some of the samples, but it's quite close to my theoretical solution. I can't wait to see if it will hold while there's a current and/or an external field present.


I'm taking care of my neighbours' pointer while they are away. I was never keen on having a pet, now I know that it's not for me. It's just one big chore that sucks away WAY too much time and energy. Thank goodness, I don't need to pay for it with actual money.

Just four days left.


So far I'm 3 for 3 at the chess tournament! Next game is going to be against one of the strongest players there, so I'm in equal parts excited and anxious. Our last game (June 2011) was in similar circumstances and I remember it as a crushing defeat.

My RPG group wants to play some Call of Cthulhu this Friday and I'm happy to take a break from being a game master. We are going to be a bunch of people associated with the Scotland Yard which, through the power of vague wording, means both the officers and criminals. I'm really looking forward to this game.

Thankfully we are playing at my house, so there will be no need for me to either come late or be out early because of the mentioned dog.
