I need to rearrange the furniture in my room. Right now I have my desk in front of the window, which is nice because I like to be able to look outside. However, it is a real problem every afternoon from about 2:30 until 5:30 when the sun is going down and shines directly into my window and into my eyes as I sit trying to work on the computer. Of course I can shut the blinds, and I do. But I would rather not have to shut the blinds, because it’s much nicer to be able to work with sunlight streaming in the windows rather than with the awful fluorescent light on my wall.
Yes, I know. Such a pressing problem, isn’t it? My boring life amuses me sometimes. Anyway. I don’t know if i will actually bother to move furniture or not. My room is an odd shape, and I don’t know if there is a better way to put things than where they already are. And I’m really only in my room during the sun-setting period on the weekends. During the week I’m always in class or the study lounge.
I have had a really good weekend. I didn’t get any homework done yesterday, which was bad, but I am making up for it today by doing my math homework and hopefully starting on compressible flow. I keep telling myself that there are only two more quarters of doing this much homework — then it’s either off to start a Ph.D. or out into the real world where I can leave my work at work.
Speaking of which, I have to call Bob tomorrow. He’s the co-op coordinator at JSC. Just like last fall, I have again gotten myself mired in a semi-annoying game of phone tag. I call him, he’s not there. He calls me, I’m in class. Argh. I just want to ask him to send me a job offer again. I want to have it in my hands. I’m more likely to take it this year than I was last year.
I wish I had gotten the bike with bigger tires. See, back when I bought my bike at the beginning of the quarter I had a choice between a mountain bikes with quasi-road tires (thicker than normal road tires, but thinner than mountain tires, and smooth) and a mountain bike with mountain bike tires (the fat, knobby ones). I couldn’t decide but after input from the salesman and from my dad, I picked the one with road-ish tires, because it takes less energy to pedal and because I thought the only place I would ever ride would be on campus.
Now though, I’m loving my bike. And there are so many places to ride around here, so many trails! And I’m wishing I had mountain bike tires so I could explore the trails. But I don’t have them. And I can’t put them on the frame that I have because the frame is too small. Any suggestions? I want to ride all over the place.
