well, it's been a week, so i guess i'll write something. (i've just been having so much fun reading everyone else's that i haven't felt like it.)
so i won't have an engineering job this semester after all. after i finally got a hold of the guy, he said (as if i already knew the information he was telling me (which i did not)), "well, like i said before, we don't have anything for you right now." like he said before?? yeah, i never heard that. and another thing, if i ever become an engineer, i'm going to return people's calls. EVERYone's calls. because that's the right thing to do. and it's just courteous. i cant STAND when people don't return my calls! holy crap it makes me mad.
i am all about these internet radio stations. ever since i started getting into movie music, i've wondered why they don't have a radio station out there that plays movie soundtracks. well stop the presses because THEY DO! i found a station through RealOne player that plays all sorts of movie music all day. i love it. i usually just leave it going all day (and sometimes night). and i'd say i recognize about 1 out of 7 songs they play, which may not sound great, but you have to realize how many friggin movies there are out there. (there are a ton.) i also have several drum & bass stations on my favorites list. and they come in at like 128Kbps or more. it's so great. this part of the country, i think, just really doesn't seem to appreciate that kind of music. maybe it's our country in general. i dunno. that's one of the one things i always appreciated about todd. i felt like he was one of the few people i could listen to electronic music with without worrying if the other person was getting bored or not.
i was reading about Jupiter and it's Red Spot in my Chaos book. it's SO interesting. (i was talking to jess about this) i hope when i go to heaven, all the answers of the universe aren't revealed to me in a flash of light or anything. i want to still be curious about everything and get to go find out the answers. can you imagine knowing everything? i would hate it. how old would that get? and fast! ugh. oh yeah, but the Big Red Spot. it's really interesting to read about a lot of the initial theories. i gotta go find more information on it. i would love to be an astronaut after we invent the warp drive. this chaos book is like a history book of how chaos was found and the steps that mathematicians/physicists have gone though since it's discovery. it's really interesting.
i've started playing keyboards for my church which is kind of an answer to a prayer i never prayed. it's really great because it gives me at least one creative musical outlet. and i fell like i can really contribute to our church's music ensemble. not even so much in my incredible musical skills... but more so in that i think i have a good ear for balance and can really assist in that. i hope i do well.
i think i've been "sick" for the past month. my stupid sinuses. and now the ligament or something under my knee hurts. i think it wasn't used to running, so i overexerted it or something when i got back and started playing frisbee. so now i have to give it a week before i do anything. so THAT rules...
i guess sunday at doug's or something(?)
i just got my chacos resoled! apparently, chaco (or vibram. i cant remember) doesn't distribute the original soles for resoling purposes, but i got some that look similar. the sole on mine had broken through to the straps. i think it was a $30 well spent.
i was going to get new footbeds and soles put on my 'stocks, but it would've ended up costing upwards of $60. so i'm thinking about just getting a new pair off ebay for $50. we'll see. i'm in no urgent need for sandals.
oh and just in case anyone was wondering, i did a word count on me and scott's recent entries and here are the results:
scott: sucks big time
(and that doesn't count that last sentence.) (or that one.) (or that one.) (or that one.) (or that one.) (or that one.) (or that one.) (or that one.)
(or this one.)
