So I didn't blog for a while. Most of that time was due to my laptop being broken (because i dropped it and the hard drive crashed) [luckily hard drives have good warranties that say something along the lines of "impacts of less than 50G should not break this drive" and therefore it was replaced with a net expenditure of 2.32$ shipping and handling for me.] I finally got it working again last Thursday. Since that time i have been either traveling too or from san diego, at san diego, or trying to catch up on the homework that i didnt get done due to going to san diego (which i have almost done) [ok, actualy i was behind before i left].
For those of you who haven't heard my tale of woe. Don't let the following mislead you, going home was, and always is, a blast. I forget how much i miss everybody until i see them again. However, the train ride there..... well..... heres a timeline:
4:15 Left campus
5:00 Arrived and bought ticket for 5:20 train
5:50 train actual arrival time
6:15 Conductor announces that a train is stuck on the tracks ahead of us
9:00 train is finaly cleared and we begin to move (yes, almost 3 hours)
9:20 Rail switch is broken, frustrated conductor "fixes" it with a sledge hammer
1:20 Power is out for a stretch of track, lack of visibility forces us to slow down
2:00 Arrive at san diego station on the 10:20 arrival train.
As mentioned above though, San Diego was a blast. My trip was scheduled around Nicole's birthday (and the 3 day weekend for Columbus day). I went with Nicole and her family to see The Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit. I was shocked to see how small the scrolls were, but the exhibit was really interesting. Other than that I ate alot and saw Nicole alot and went to church with my family and in general it was a very good trip. Even got my seminar reading done (on duties by Cicero)
Anyhow, I should at least be posting on the weekends from now on, I'm going to be more careful with my laptop. Remember, i dont know you were here unless you leave a comment. At some point i will figure out a How-To on having atomizer email you when i post so my irregular postings wont leave you checking endlessly with no updates. Thanks for reading!
