Whee, earthquake!

Sigh, I totally slept through that earthquake this morning. It sounds like it would have been fun.

Kayaking

I went kayaking today with my dad for the time in almost a year. The water level is up fairly high on Boulder Creek (high enough that they just banned tubing), so there was plenty of water to paddle on. But having just watched over half a dozen boaters swim there the day before (Three kayakers in a row got flipped, failed to roll, and swam. Then a raft flipped in a drop, dumped the two boaters and their dog out, and proceeded to get stuck in the pour-over. Finally, another kayaker swam upstream, and his friend who was chasing the empty kayak got tangled up in the stuck raft and swam as well) made me slightly nervous.

But it all went quite well. I remembered how to paddle, how to surf, how to do some tricks... Of course, I also remembered how to do silly things and end up upside down, but fortunately I also remembered how to roll back up every time (knock on wood) after bouncing around upside down for a bit. Hopefully some warm weather will bring water levels up even more for some more paddling fun.

I get back from camping to find that I've got over one hundred LJ posts to catch up on. Now I get to keep my side of those mutual-posting agreements.

For the last week I've been camping up toward Yosemite with [livejournal.com profile] icydragon, [livejournal.com profile] notsteven, [livejournal.com profile] orca1342, and Brianna which, was quite fun.

Pictures from the trip )

 

Now I get to spend a couple of weeks with my family before heading back to Mudd on the June 5th and starting work. And since [livejournal.com profile] hmdavid83 and [livejournal.com profile] cairpaverl got to do it, it's my turn now---I miss my Hilary. Fortunately, she'll be coming and visiting soon.

In other news, I'm now the proud owner of Chainmaille's betta fish. Now no longer named "Chainmaille's fish", it has been dubbed Sashimi. Thanks for taking care of it for me, [livejournal.com profile] quartzpebble.

So, no research position at Mudd for me this summer. But there's still a possibility of a "Summer Research & Development" project sponsored by Green Hills Software, working an a distributed compiler. ::Hope, hope, hope::

That yellow 5.6 next to the kiddie wall, with the big, easy holds? It's now the hardest 5.6 I've climbed because I climbed it with no feet! Pull up after pull up, all the way to the top. And on the black roof climb I made it to the 4th clip on the roof, but didn't feel confident enough to clip it. Ah, climbing was the key bit that made my already good weekend spectacular. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] hmdavid83!

I went and checked my mailbox today, and guess what was waiting for me? A permit application for a river trip this summer. But also there was a summons for Jury Duty in Pomona for the week of March 7th—the week before spring break. Anyone from CA know more about how this works?

Ah! I just got back from climbing with my dad and my sister. It was fun to get out climbing again, and it was nice to do something with my sister that we both enjoyed—something that happens too rarely.

And yesterday I got to go cross country skiing with my parents, up by Jenny Lynn Creek. At first the snow was fairly... windblown, but it got better once we got more in the trees. It reminded me what I liked about cross country skiing—the quiet snow with wind blowing across it, climbing, then zooming downhill, crisp clear air and pine trees all around...

But now I'm about ready to be back at Mudd. Tomorrow...

Glasses

So today I went to look at new glasses frames and thought I'd get my glasses adjusted at the same time. While the lady was un-crooked-ing my glasses they went snap and broke in two where the bridge connects to the left lens. She was very apologetic, and they had them soldered back together, but it's a good thing I was planning on getting new glasses anyways.

Help me pick frames (UPDATED)! )

And my parent's are awsome—they just got me a climbing harness (on sale!) and a chalk bag! And my dad and I have plans to go climbing some time this week.

Snow!

Yay, I finally get snow! Not much yet, but the flakes are still drifting down. Sorry [livejournal.com profile] cairpaverl and [livejournal.com profile] memnus.

Snow! [640x480] )

Apparently I've been away from cats for too long.

I was scratching our cat's behind the ears and thought to myself "Aww... she reacts just like Robin does."

All my work is finally done, the CS project complicated slightly by the fact that ever since I left Mudd my laptop has refused to connect to any network. Now I get to wait and see what Keller will do about the fact that it's so late.

Lyzenga emailed me saying he got the tech report I'd emailed him at the last minute (since the power outage meant no AC end printers). So hopefully that means he'll accept it.

I'm getting well into a second all nighter in a row now, so I'm off to sleep some well earned sleep.

Note to the frosh of East: Things which explode when put in fires should not be left in the fire tub, especially if they are hidden under papers so that I won't see them before lighting fires on top of them. Not that it wasn't a cool kaboom, but I would have preferred to know it was coming and to have been a bit further away.

I'm now registered and off of waitlists. I got Japanese 1B, CS 81, Praganomics, Science and Technology of the Ancient and Medieval World, and Stems, I'm on the waiting list for LSD. and now LSD.

I'm also grading CS 70 next semester

*Finalized* Schedule )

Climbing... good... pain... happy... endorphins, adrenaline...

I made it to the top of the crack climb!

Must climb more! *Climbing-zombie motions*

Well, I've got my schedule largely figured out, all but the easy Hum or two (Real Anal didn't fit). Anyone have any suggestions? I've got 10:00--2:45 and then after 4:00 free on Monday and Wednesday, 11:00--1:15 and then after 2:30 free on Tuesday and Thursday, and either after 10:00 or 11:00 free on Friday. On campus is good, easy is good...

So I'm working on my CS 152 with the room lights off as my roommate had gone to sleep. Just my screen and my desk lamp making a small pool of light. Suddenly, zoom, something flies through the light and lands in the dark on my speaker. When I turned the lamp around I found that it was a preying mantis that had leaped/flew in front of my face. I've been seeing a lot of those lately. I picked it up and put it out in the courtyard.

Now on to finishing CS, Japanese, and my lab writeup. At least Bio is done.
