Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

I *am* alive @ 12:12 am

Excuses are in order for the almost , yes it is almost, two months of lj deadness here. I'm really upset with myself really because I probably will forget many things which I haven't written down.

Here are my excuses, try them on for size, then I'll go into a few details.


  • I almost forgot how to open up my LJ client so I could write.

  • I don't have a life ... well actually, I have a life it's just very boring.

  • The true story is that the hang nail which is on my finger and which prompted me to get the wireless keyboard out because typing large volumes of text on a little laptop keyboard. I ahd to get a new wireless keyboard just for this moment ... that was three weeks ago I got the new keyboard.

  • I've had about x*3+2 number of programs to do for one of my classes and by the time I finish, I'm too tired that ...

Ok enough. THe simple fact is that my life isn't *that boring, but there are times when you, as a writer, feel no motivation to put virtual pencil or pen to paper. I hoped by starting today with the here and now, that perhaps later on I can recount what's going on. I'm sure by now that many have forgotten me, or deleted me off of their friends lists, but I'm not too concerned. All lives go on, so let's update on mine, one life in a world of five or six billion.

I've been existing in a relatively boring haze of academia, finishing assignments generally on time and doing well with grades. I got my actual diploma about a month ago ... well, I actually don't have the diploma here, but it's at home, and I'm doing the graduation ceremony on the 14th, next Saturday. It's going to be a lot of pomp, a lot of circumstance, a lot of "hoo ha" but it's a huge accomplishment to go through what I have, not even close to unscathed, but I still did it. I've got four more graduate classes after finishing the ones I'm in now, and after those and a bit of research, I'll be doing the long walk again.

There have been a few blips on the boring radar scope though, and on my last trip to Little Rock and

There have been a few blips on the boring radar scope though, and on my last trip to Little Rock and <lj-user = "sunnyblue">'s wedding shower, my first ever wedding shower actually, I decided that when it took me more than five minutes to catch up when, if I had continued writing in my journal, it would have and should have taken five seconds, that I ought to not only end this unwieldy run on sentence, but that I also should write, and write soon. Two weeks isn't soon, but it's something. My first ever wedding shower went rather uneventfully. There was most definitely too few guys, so we men tried to stick together as much as possible. I got to meet all of the people in Megan's family I had read about from her journal and in talking to her for hours during high school, and that was cool.

I've now taken the bus to Little Rock twice, once quite painfully next to the driver on the steps (a very long story, one I'll recount some time after a few beers), and the second, much less painfully in a REAL seat, on my last trip. I wonder though about people that have to rely on buses for transportation rather than relying on planes. I'm glad buses exist, but I sure don't want to make a habit of riding buswise two hours more than I do if I ride with a friend to Little Rock.

The last time I wrote I was getting ready to go to CSUN, a technology conference for people with disabilities. I learned a lot, mostly that there are few people as crazy as me to go into engineering or math and sciences for that matter. My advisor wants me to go next year as well, this time not only to play with techie toys, but more importantly, to spread the gospel about cool geeky math and science things. Speaking about technology, Larry and I actually went to about a day and a half of general sessions and we spent about two and a half days looking at toys. I got to try out a portable talking GPS unit around the hotel, and really thought it was cool. There were a lot of things that I thought were really cool, but being the procrastinator that I am, it'd be too much to put my thoughts here two months after the fact. We didn't have to do what some did and bring home extra boxes, but our suitcases were definitely quite full of random stuff we'll probably never use, and different literature from the companies involved. I didn't end up buying anything there, but it was a hard thing to resist.

Well, I'm starting to get tired and things really aren't making much sense in my mind. I've got class tomorrow, the last classes of the semester actually, and that will be cool. I'm worried about one final, so I hope to get that sorted out in my mind. Before I make less sense, I better stop. I'll try to write something more coherent tomorrow, but for those who wanted an entry or wondered where I was, there you are. More soon, I swear it, this time I'm for real.

In case you were wondering, which you probably weren't, but that isn't the point...or is it?
According to the International Programs Center, U.S. Bureau of the Census, the total population of the World, projected to 05/05/05 at 17:14 GMT (EST+5) is:
6,439,618,031.
Yeah yeah, that's probably completely useless information that you'll almost likely never use, (unless someone asks, which no one probably will, but someone might--I don't know), but it's always good to know at least a few random, pointless, useless, and completely weird facts about the world, it really is. Either that, or I'm just weird, which probably goes without saying.
The reason I even posted that in the first place is that your entry mentioned your life being one of the five or six billion others in the world, so I thought I would find out how many other people we actually are living with on this planet otherwise known as Earth. Something like that, anyway.
Alright, this concludes the Random and Pointless Fact for the Day.
I guess I should really go do work now instead of looking up pointless information that people may or may not care about :).

Oh yeah, if you have a problem, give it to me, I'm here to answer it :). And yes, I do try to have a plan for everything. I'd even go so far as to say that I have a plan for the plan for the plan for everything. Wow, I think I just confused myself.
As for having an answer to everything, I try, but sometimes I mmight not. Take for instance why I really and truly hate to pack. I can't figureout why--I mean, packing never did anything to me in the first place for me to not like it--but I still don't, nevertheless. That's pretty unfortunate for me, though, seeing as how I really should start that soon.

Hmm, maybe Outlook is going to allow me to reply to you via email. You should have a plan for everything ... it's good for your health. Get packing, it's also good for you.

Yeah, replying to comments via email is great, very convenient actually.
I guess I *should* start packing, but I don't have a Plan of Attack for that, which is probably bad.

I'm avoiding getting ready for work by reading your livejournal. Hehehe.

There's nothing really interesting in that entry.
