12 hours of sleep later, I no longer feel like the walking dead.

I still haven't made the effort to post my pictures from Yosemite online. When I do, I'll make sure to share them with you all. Also, I'll probably write more about it too.

And now, to class (Python, in this case).

There was a wedding (congratulations to Nancy and Albert!!) and hanging out with gamers and making pizza in the city and getting hit on by a 21 year old and sleeping on a loveseat and more hanging out with gamers and end of World of Warcraft tabletop and pretty views of the Bay late late at night and tapping a deer while driving back from said pretty views. End of weekend.

I'm endeavoring to make this weekend as much fun, though the only concrete plan I have is homework. This is midly terrifying -- I have homework, and it may not be simple. I'm taking two classes (with a third starting in November). The first one is a marketing class taught according to a curriculum at the Haas MBA school at Berkeley. The second is an intro to Java class at Stanford. The third is (what else?) New Kingdom Egypt literature, also at Stanford. So, Mondays and Tuesdays (and eventually Thursdays) will be bad for me trying to do anything. Which is why I went to see a movie at 10pm last night. Never mind my propensity for staying up late in general anyway.

Ironically, I'm more awake after a week of not drinking caffeine (minus a small incident where I forgot that Dr Pepper contains caffeine and drank a full glass of it before being rather embarrassed) and sleeping too little than I have been when I used to drink lots of coffee and sleep too much. I'm wondering if the caffeine had some weird interaction with my body chemistry that didn't used to exist. Slowing metabolism? Who knows. In any case, I may just have to give up caffeine permanently, as much as I love coffee and tea. It also probably helps that Lou is staying in my apartment -- there's no way in hell *anyone* who broke in would get close enough to hurt me with Lou around. Probably this certainty is making me sleep better. Who knows?

I'm REI-bound in the next week or so. I'm likely going camping/hiking/somethingorother in Yosemite in a couple of weeks for a weekend. I'm terribly excited -- I miss being outdoors. And drinking tea (caffeinated or otherwise) in slightly cold weather. I'll never admit to sometimes liking being cold, but sometimes it's kind of nice, despite how much I'll complain about it.

I need to write a snippet, but I'm having problems thinking of something to write about. I write so much in my livejournal and was planning a DnD campaign for 6 months that I've kind of forgotten how to write about something that isn't terribly concrete. I really want to go home and sit in some crunchy leaves and write about being in Massachusetts sitting in a pile of crunchy leaves, but it's a long trip to write a snippet. I'm sure I'll think of something - suggestions are welcome, fiction & non-fiction alike.

Now I have Dido's "White Flag" stuck in my head. Have a video:

Ich lerne Deutsch. Sort of, anyway.

i'm taking classes at stanford again because i need more things to do, other than my working 65-70 hrs a week and sleeping something less than that.

anyway, the teacher is awesome. :)

Work is different from school, since at work, you don't get partial credit if you can't do a part of it. You just fail.

I just made a friends-only post, so if you're not a friend, you can either sign up on LJ (it's free!) or send me an email and I'll send you the post.

I've been having the weirdest dreams where I keep being reminded that I need to call people, and failing to do so. It's odd because I haven't managed to talk to either of these people yet, and I have recurring dreams about them. So clearly I ought to call, but they're not people I'm particularly close to (anymore), so it's kind of awkward...

And my headphones finally died, which is a real pity since Schandmaul is quite good to listen to while jogging, working, sitting on the bus, being unhappy, being happy, and generally playing computer games.

In other news, Arabic class is awesome, and I'm thinking about picking up various different languages, but it's sort of hard without someone to actually speak them with me. Luckily, there's a guy here who speaks some arabic, so we're keeping each other on point with our bastard arabic.

I also love Excel. Excel is my master. VLOOKUP for t3h w1n!

Wow, I finally remembered my icq password.. took me long enough.

And then there's the whole 15 minute lunch, consisting of sushi and Ho-Hos.
