My brother and I finished season 2 last night together. Just sent this his way. :] The fact that it's Australia Adult Swim... extra lol factor

Slightly speed up, added a simple snare and hi-hat beat. Small addition and makes it a tad bit catchy.

School

Finally finished with all my exams this week. All-in-all, I think I did rather flaky on them... one of those feelings where the tests were so easy I must have been some major details. Either that, or I have some minor mistakes scattered around my work. Ah well. Now, with exams out of the way I can turn my attention to anything else at least a week.

Club

Because I failed to notify the SGA of last minute changes to the November travel plans to Cali, we were put on notice for probation. Good news is the meeting is today and I hope to sort it out. Bad news is I have no idea what this really means after searching through as many linked documents from the SGA site as I could find relevant. Unrelated note: there's club drama that I'm completely oblivious to, yet seeing red flags left and right. Not really concerned, but funny to notice how out of the loop I am. Frankly, I prefer the ignorance so long as I can maintain a neutral status as someone people can go to if they need to talk.

Work

Went to the job fair two weeks ago. Going to mark it down as a practice round... There were only a few places I was interested in approaching and only handed out 10 or so resumes. Part of that was the line for Lockheed-Martin being so damn long. With all the engineers at our school, the line only got longer every time I came back to check. By the time I made my small rounds, joined the line, and moved a fifth of the way to the recruiters, I had to go to my next class. Small bummer, but I got a free, shiny LinkedIn profile picture out of it that I have been using to apply online elsewhere. Interning for Lockheed would be a dream experience. Hoped to get a leg up on other applicants by making a good impression on the recruiters - the internship I'm applying too is non-technical so in theory all those engineers who surrounded me wouldn't have been my competition. Meh. On another note, I just got off a phone interview with onward Israel which allows me to get an internship in Israel over the summer (and I'd get a free flight there thanks to Birthright). Truth be told, that's the back-up plan provided I get it since I'm not likely to move to Israel for a job after uni.

Home

Roommate situation is in the air. This makes me unhappy granted how much better this year's gone having a childhood friend and his own friend (who went to the same schools as us) compared to my first and second year situations. Previous plans were that the childhood friend (Friend A) would have another friend of his fill the third slot (Friend C) since the current one will not be in the state next semester. The meet up was rather choppy, sudden and in a completely non-neutral environment (our place). I didn't get a good read on Friend C and told Friend A in less words... naturally, it didn't leave too good an impression. He let me know he's looking for other places now. I'm looking to recourse and be more open. It's not necessarily hard to do so, just a pain to be in such an awkward place.

Personal

In a low. Been doing the usual attach-self-worth-to-interactions-with-X, hasn't been doing me good. The whole roommate thing got me in a funk. Friend A's group of friends are very tight, so it was easy to project someone something was wrong when I was getting flat out ignored by one of the more outgoing ones recently. A similar occurrence happened in a club meeting last night. These bits happening under 24 hours amidst exams really sent me into a tizz with questions about my psyche in relations to others and my childhood. Good times.

tl;dr more tedious, slightly deviant, yet mundane activity than normal.

Google Keep Widget on my phone for the hour to hour tasks, and a physical planner for bigger events and class dues dates. Make sure to cross check both. :)

That really is hot off the press. I was searching through to read the FBI report itself. Just realized it'd make sense not to release the full thing. Interesting to read that the FBI is "Trumpland" and they find Trump is looking the wrong way. Anywho, maybe hiding it's a good idea.

LOL. I figured if I stayed in long enough that I'd catch you. For some reason I didn't connect my other monitor to keep IRC open, then closed my browser altogether in order to study. Its the little things, I guess. Will be sure to pop in tomorrow night for sure.

TIL it was coined 100 years ago this September, too.

Pulling an all-nighter? Right on. If I don't have my sleep schedule back in order by then, I may pop in IRC.

    Might get stopped at immigration though - I'd better hide my hijab.

Oddly enough, TPA's head honcho is a childhood family friend. He spoke to my pops saying he was heading to the White House this week (or last?) since Trump was calling in major airport exec's to figure out some plan about immigration security given the courts decision. I think you're in the clear until it's sorted out. Wear it loud and proud.

Ah-ha, the math checks out. To your question, yes. Hubski's traffic from Florida is going double on Thursday. :) Safe travels, you must be getting up early.

kantos  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Student Research

Of course. :) Responses with time and effort put into then are a feature of the culture here. Personally, that's what keeps me coming back. As another user put it (at least, how I crudely remember it), people take the time and effort to read posts, comments, and sources before responding here.

Now that some people are starting their lunch breaks around your time zone it seems you're getting a lot more traffic. It's a lot, and a warm welcome. Enjoy your stay, and again, come around for Pubski tomorrow!
