Oh so guess what. Like you wouldn't even believe. It's like so cool, cause like, okay. Scope this. I have these strings attached to my door and light switch, so I can close the door and turn my light off and on from my bed. The contraption is ingenious and beautifully simple. There are three strings that run alongside my bed - one for each function. My suite mates dig it. You can't see the one for turning the light off because it runs underneath the bed. Now when Kevin comes in late at night I can shut off the lights and close the door without sitting up. Hahaha.
I went to two study abroad sessions this week. The first was geared toward studying computer science abroad, the second was about Revelle in Rome and Berlin. To be honest, studying Revelle humanities abroad sounds like it could be fun (as well as not fun) and definitely like less fun than studying computer science abroad. I watched this girl's presentation about her trip to Edinburgh university, where they have awesome artificial intelligence classes. It looked quite exciting. I don't want to go to museums in Rome. I can do that anytime. The people that will enjoy that include this chubby guy with thin hair who wears socks and sandals at the same time, and spectacles, and acted all pompous-like. He wants to study ruins in Rome. I want to study computer science in a castle in Scottland!
No-shave November ended on December 1st at midnight. Supercuts was closed (and overpriced, anyway) so I allowed friend-from-Strides Jessie Rosas to cut my hair. Zack offered to help some, and the two of them managed to give me a worse haircut than the haircut you see in horror movies and your nightmares. I had some girls in 350 fix it up some. I shaved my beard and everything else except my arm hair and the top of my head. I'm all clean and shiny and smooth. Be jealous.
I haven't written in my blog for a while, but don't worry, you're not missing out on too much. Class, running (Zack Lee has been running with Strides, which is cool), sleeping, eating (Plaza, Pines, Rubio's and once Round Table pizza), studying (mostly chemistry), chess, working for Pap. Party Coordinator Carrie McFarland hasn't planned any events recently. Shimmy took us to this Indian restaurant a while ago, and I had shrimp tikka masala. It was tasty.
Lastly, I'd like to recognize a special mentionee in my blog today. His name, Officer Matthew Huber, is the name of a person who is the webmaster of Strides as well as Strides' fastest runner. Putting running aside, Matthew is particularly skilled at making scathing remarks and refuting comebacks with impeccable rejoinders. He promoted me a few weeks ago, and I am now a deputy officer/webmaster. We have yet to revamp the Strides website together, but it will happen.
