Fiona and me in the snow

(no subject)

It's time for another update, long awaited and long overdue. I'm mostly writing to keep myself from proofing a thesis for one of my friends (it's got los of gramatical mistakes and such because he's fron INdia and I'm not upset to proof it, but it's taking time). I also have a plant design to optimize, scriptures to read, laundry to do, ... So I guess, with nothing else to do that I actually want to do right now, I thought I'd fill ore virtual pages. I'm not going to promise to write more often; I've done t hat and it is counterproductive I think.

Today I had no classes to go to: summer school is almost over and my class I've been auditing is finished. So, I went to the amateur radio club lunch at the Union. We talked radio like we usually do, and increased and fulfilled my geekness quotient for the day. My good friend Bernie took me over to see if my name was spelled correctly on senior walk. It was a hot walk, but one well worth it. It's a pretty cool tradition to have your name etched in the sidewalk for future generations.

Hvae been doing lots of things over the past while. Since I've written, or I guess I shouldsay, while I was writing, I had a girlfriend, and am now single. I've learned that it's always good to keep ralationship details private, so I've done that and hope to continue doing that. Of course, you'll probably get, if you and me are lucky, details of various general relationship problems I'm having, but I'm single again, and so that's not a concern. I've been single now for about three months, and have done the best as I could to get over it and move on. I've since grasped up the courage to ask someone out. I hope to be able to do it again, even though the actual mechanics of dating perplex me still. I'm learning that (a) I lose lots to nonverbal communication, and (b) it's ok to be at least somewhat forward about how I feel. Perhaps next week I will have the oportunity to fix the mistakes I made the first time we went out. Who knows what will happen. All I know is that I can't give up quickly unfortunately, it's not in my person to do that. I wish I could, because I would ahve cashed in my chips long ag. Giving up accomplishes nothing though, so alas, I'll just have to continue to stress myself out being myself. How's that for a confusing sentence. It's true though.

I've continued going to church regularly. I won't go into too many details here, as most of you won't be interested in my religious views. I continue to search for the truth, even if it appears different and unknown to some people. There must be something to the peace I feel when I attend church meetings, and study scripture.

Well, I'm running out of things to write. I hope someday to write more and be more clear, but my mind is not feeling very clear at the moment, so the vague details will have to do for now. Work beckons me, so I'm off.
