I registered for Winter quarter classes on Friday. I got to register way before everyone else, cause I’m awesome. I’m signed up for five 400 level computer science courses. I’ve decided against taking the second quarter of Modern Physics so I can take Computational Intelligence. I’m also taking Operating Systems, Software Engineering part II, which is where we actually build the crazy thing I’ve been getting all the paperwork together for this quarter, a little senior colloquium thing about ethics, prolly lots of presentations and papers, and I’m a TA for a class yet to be determined. Grading papers and everything. If I get lucky and the class I TA for is in the afternoon, then I have no classes before noon. Such a thing would be a nice boon.
Parents stopped by on the way to Seattle. Bought me food and such. Maybe tomorrow I’ll make lentil stew. Yusuke bought swim trunks at Goodwill so he could go swimming with the group tonight.
Dan, Hiro, Yusuke, Luke, Lauren, Sidney, Elisabeth, and I all went swimming. Well, Elisabeth went to the pool, not into the pool. She read or something. I threw a water polo ball, I guess that’s what it was, at Yusuke‘s head, and gave him a bloody nose. Was a stupid thing for me to do. He’s ok, but it was still very stupid. I don’t normally do stupid things. /sigh The full story is something like, Yusuke and Hiro were having a splash war, Lauren got caught in the cross fire, she splashed at Yusuke, Yusuke splashed back, Lauren says, “Throw this at his head,” I throw the ball at the back of Yusuke‘s head, he turns at the wrong time, he throws the ball back, then we notice he has a small blood loss problem.
With all the swimming, and showering associated with swimming, I’m more motivated to get rid of my hair. I want to have my beard without my hair for a while, though, so hopefully Sidney will find time and courage to cut my hair for me soon.
I get my Tuesday class cancelled this week. Woo hoo. I guess at least I’ll get to sleep in.
