Quotes of the Day 12/6/06

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image. - Stephen Hawking

There are two ways to slide easily through life; to believe everything or to doubt everything. Both ways save us from thinking. - Alfred Korzybski

i've been unmotivated... looking too far ahead to break

since novemeber, i have not wanted to do anything. i've been sitting around like a bump on a log. now i have to push myself to get through til next monday, andi'll be a free man (kinda... only from classes).

finals started last monday for me, and had 2 today. i have 2 tomorrow, one wed, a take home due fri, another take home due sat, and a paper due next mon.

i go to sleep these days wishing i won't wake up (just to avoid exams)... but i may not be sleeping again until wed afternoon.

wanted to wish everyone luck with their final school/work pushes until the holidays.

i know... you might roll your eyes at this...

the weakerthans just came into my head... thus the title.

so i'm glad that wednesday is over. i've had 5 final exams in 3 days, and it's been pretty stressful. i'm pretty sure i did pretty well on all of them so far. hopefully my final 2 and term paper will go over ok this weekend. i could really use a break from classes. it's been a really weird semester, lots of distractions and things throwing me off course each week... at least it felt that way.

that's all for now, i'm gonna crash.

crazy numbers.

$40 million... as a frickin bonus. that's $769,260 a week. that's $109,890 a day. that's $4,579 an hour. that's $76.31 a minute. that's $1.27 every second. if you just sit around for 5 seconds you get $6. you could work for 2 weeks and have enough money for the rest of your life, and then some... and it's a BONUS! well... he'll probably get a good chunk of it taken away by taxes (unless he has a tax shelter somewhere)... but still... it's ridiculous. this world is crazy sometimes. take bill gates... he's worth a couple billion dollars. if he wanted to... he could give each person in china ~$37 if he liquidated all his assets. that's 1.3 billion people he could give $37 to. i do admire bill gates though, he and his wife are planning on spending everything in their foundation's trust within 50 years after they pass away. say what you will about microsoft and windows, but bill gates is a pretty good guy at the end of the day.

strange weather pattern

so... this is a really weird weather pattern we've got in north america. from the west coast to parts of the midwest... there are some cold temps. we're doing pretty good out here on the east... it's been balmy for fall. it looks like we're beating out most of arizona up here in the buff, and the jet stream seems to be almost down to mexico.

the bills got to .500 today, and they shut out the fish. don't know how that happened. while i'm happy about that, to convince me that we've gotten better... i need to see us beat a decent team or two. it's been a long time since we pulled off winning against a dominant team like new england, indianapolis,or san diego.

i should be writing my paper that's due tomorrow... but it's hard to get motivated when it's the last thing you have to do before you're a free man for a couple weeks.

i'm only gonna be taking 9 credits next semester instead of 20. although it was a struggle to keep my head above water, i still have a pretty good feeling about my grades this semester. for next semester though, i wanted to take an easier classload so i could finish up my research and start writing that thesis.

ok... back to the paper... gonna be the last all-nighter for awhile =].
