Welcome to Junior Year

I’ve been back at school for a while now and it’s been the best year yet.

I’m all moved into the refurnished apartment at Perkins Green. They gave us new carpets, a new shower curtain, an airtight front door, a new electric oven, and probably more. Bryan and I have a very cool setup in the room; we both have corner desks and I (finally) got an office chair that actually fits. The kind with a headrest for those of the 6’5″ variety.
Taber got a projector for the living room, I’m setting up a MythTV box for free TiVo, and the server this blog is hosted on [the infamous] moved over successfully too. So everything is golden with the living arrangements this year.

Of course to live in an apartment at RIT you come to depend on transportation. So the week the gas prices shot through the stratosphere was the very same one I bought one of those fancy pants car machines, a silver Camry in (hooray) immaculate condition. Why does nary a scratch deface the gleaming body? Because an older couple used it to get to church and back until their kids made them stop driving. Mileage is only 40,000 for a 60,000-average year. *cha-ching!*

So back to self-effacing mode…
Courses are pretty serious this year, and much more challenging than ever before. The list includes Interface Design (yay), Website Design and Implementation (hopefully we’ll do things I don’t know), Network Admin (holy crap this is time-consuming), and Microeconomics (interesting).

Changed my schedule to the new one RIT is pushing, got a few more free electives. Trying to do study abroad in Marburg this summer…

And, that, as they say, is that. That came out damn long, ha to those still reading!
