Three Cheers for Friday

And why not? It is the end of the week and I don’t have to work tomorrow. Or the next day. So I can sit at home in front of the computer (like at work) and NOT talk on the phone. Or watch movies. I still have three that I haven’t watched that are due back on Monday… so I have my evenings this weekend pretty mapped out. If anyone is interested, I ordered some CDs from They have free shipping to Canada. They sell Electronic music only, so if that doesn’t rock your boat, don’t worry about it. The CDs I ordered are: Trance Files 2002 v1.0, Bitchin’ by Subsonic Chronic, and T-Funk by DJ Rowan. I can’t wait.

I have also noted that this might be the last weekend that I spend in my current apartment. This brings mixed emotions. Excitement and anxiousness about moving downstairs into the bachelor. Frustration with amount of crap that I have that I need to pack into boxes or something to bring downstairs. Sadness that I have to leave the apartment that brought with it so many good times - and some crazy times as well. That’s about it. The dominant one is definitely anxiousness because I really like moving - I like changing my environment from time to time to stimulate creativity. Yea alright.

I had a really good time at the Shad Valley banquet and variety show last night. The dinner was good and the talent that the Shad participants possess is quite phenomenal. I also had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Brian Crenna from the Physics (Atmospheric Science) Department. It has been a long time since I have been able to just talk about computers and programming at any depth with anyone. Even if I was able before, it has been even longer since I have actually done that. It was quite refreshing and it definitely added to an already great evening.

It seems to be my week for making computer related connections. I have been in charge of organizing software demos for new reservation software that we are hoping to decide on. In fact one of those companies is Seattle Technology Group, whose “canned photo” I had on my site earlier. If you find their site a little slow, don’t be alarmed - they know it is and I believe that they are making steps to fix that. :) But I have been talking a bit with Ryan Hamilton from that company and although we haven’t had much time to speak, Ryan is one of the programmers and again - good to have contact with other people in the field.

I guess the only other thing is that next weekend I am going to Saint John with my Dad and the weekend after that I am going home for my brother’s birthday. That is why I say that this is the last weekend that I spend in my apartment - I won’t be in any apartment those weekends. I actually move down sometime around the weekend of the 10th of August… so I guess I have a bit of time left to sort out my stuff.

Anyway… that about sums up what is going on with me. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Cheers, rhuvok.
