Assignment three for this class consists majorly of learning how to develop Java Beans and minorly of learning NetBeans and JSP. Once I figured out what I was doing, the first two parts were easy. The second two parts look to be as well, I just really wish to get to sleep right about now, but it looks like Sarah has taken the whole bed :/
Based on how I go about it, our one month is on Wednesday (the 29th to the 29th). Her point of view is that our one month is four weeks after the 29th of March. Either way, we ended up celebrating (I guess?) today (Saturday) because doing things on a Wednesday is just kinda lame, since there’s school all over the place during the week.
She was alerted to this ice cream place on the north side by the name of iCream by (a friend | TechNews | I don’t know for sure, I should pay more attention). The main reason we were eager to check it out was that they offer soy ice cream in addition to regular milk based ice cream. They also offer soy and regular based pudding, yogurt, and sorbet (dunno if the last two have soy variants?). Basically, you pick your base (ice cream, etc.), your flavorings (banana and vanilla for her, mint and vanilla for me), your toppings (she: blueberries, me: oreos), and the color you want (she got green, I forgot to ask for purple). Then you can watch them inject the flavoring extract into the liquid base, stick it in a mixing bowl, and LIQUID NITROGEN. Shit was delicious. Hers tasted like some sort of candy, mine was exactly what I expected, but that does not detract from it at all.
We came back and hung out in my room and watched Firefly and talked and stuff. When she started getting really sleepy I started working on my Java.
I really don’t like my writing style in this post. I blame it on general tiredness not having written in a while.
Besides some school stuff here and there.. life is fantastic.
Nicole and I move into the apartment in two weeks. That is going to be hectic and wonderful at the same time.
When did I last update? April 20th? Hawking got better.
Last real update? March 26th? Exactly one month ago? Damn.
I bought two new pairs of jeans at Target the other week. They’re both size 28/30, yet one is slightly looser than the other. They’re the same brand, even. These are the first pairs of pants that sit at my waist without the aid of a belt. I have always warn 30/30s in the past, often with a belt, but it was never really required. It feels better to just have them sit naturally at my waist, though. It’s weird, I like it. I also really really really like the cut of the jeans, the legs look and feel a lot better on me than my other jeans’ do. I think I’m finally starting to look decent with these new jeans and my small shirts (instead of baggy khakis and large shirts). I’ve heard several times that if one is skinny, one should wears clothes that show this, but not in a gross way (i.e. tight pants, skin-tight shirts). I like the direction my wardrobe is taking. It’s neat.
I hung out with Heather at her mom’s the other night. Her half-brother said to me “You know, you look like-” and I wanted to cut him off and go “yeah yeah, I know, Harry Potter.” But then I realized that I had long hair now and there is no way I could look like him (though people still thought I did when I was so bald!). He finished by saying “Johnny Depp.” (From a movie called Secret Window?) I think that’s a lot better than Harry Potter. I guess the new glasses really seal the Depp-deal.
Oh yeah, plastic emo frames. They’re so comfortable! They feel better with my headphones, I like them!
Image touched up in The GIMP to make the colors more realistic (my camera had everything at a weird shade of orange due to the lighting in the room), crop, resize, and a single pass of the sharpen filter. My left arm looks retarded because I’m bracing it against the bed to try to get a steady picture (no flash == slower shutter). My hair looks retarded because some of it is caught in the scarf. I look retarded because. Ignore the smudges on the mirror.
And thought I was bordering on a hipster-ish look, so I threw on the scarf to complete the look and it looks very.. a) stylish? b) NOT ME. Two-shirting it today with a small dark grey shirt (the fire dancer woot shirt for those who know of it) over my long sleeve black power shirt. I put on the scarf and.. boom. It was weird.
Apparently there are two last homework assignments for Data Networks that were just posted that are actually a study guide for the final on the eighth. Neat. I should get on the project for this class.
Welcome to staticy-hair and dry-skin season… :(
I’ll have to see if I can find my camera’s power cable to get a picture of me. It’s weird.
Somehow a small shirt fits over a large shirt with no real problem?
This dude next to me likes to sniffle really loud in one short burst. Everytime he does it I imagine a huge lump of phlegm in my throat.. :/
