I just saw an albino pigeon.
I was going to skip class today and go to work, but I couldn't
get out of bed.
I have to read Walden. Such dense prose, so hard to read
after Franklin's Autobiography. I read it in high school without
any trouble. I think if you're going to read Walden you should
read it in high school.
I have begun to really dig The X-Files. It's my generation's The

Okay, I ordered my mighty computer. It cost $582. It is an AMD 450
with 128 megs of RAM. It should be here in about two weeks. Now
maybe I can stop agonizing over this.

I screwed up! I forgot that I'm a senior now, and entitled to
the first slot for picking classes! And I went and wasted that slot by
not signing up for anything! Now 181 is full! ARRGH
Oh well. I had to scramble, but I found a decent schedule for the
fall. Computer System Modeling Fundamentals, which appears to be a
benchmarking class or a distributed systems class or some combination
of the two; the database class I almost took last quarter; A creampuff (?) Bach music history class;
and First Course in Logic, which I discovered
you need in order to take any interesting upper-division philosophy
classes, apart from the Philosophy of Science series, which is not being offered this year.
FCIL has gotta be a joke. What could be in it that I haven't
done three times over? My only concern is that I'm using up my easy classes
this quarter. But I don't really have a choice, as the two hard
classes I have left I can't take this quarter.
I'm going to be very angry if UCLA doesn't think the classes I
chose fall into the right categories and makes me take additional
classes, thus preventing me from graduating on time. I don't think that will happen, but it might.
