It's a chilly Sunday, but the sun is out, and if you're out in it, it's beautiful. It's still a bit chilly in the house, warranting a sweatshirt, but the sweatshirt makes things comfortable.

I'm still in this crazy writing/popularity contest on LJ called

I'm still in this crazy writing/popularity contest on LJ called <lj-user = "therealljidol"> I don't know how I've managed avoiding the chopping block for so long--I don't do the best at "playing the game", I just write--but I've enjoyed reading all of the entries and getting to know everyone. I'd highly recommend reading the entries from this week's <a href="http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/98972.html">Topic</a> and <a href="http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/100954.html">vote here</a> I say these things with slight consternation, mostly because I don't want this journal to become an arena for me to ask for votes--I try not to do things <i>like everyone else</i>--but it has been a real joy to read all of the various viewpoints and writing styles that all of the competitors exhibit. It's also bee fun being <i>forced</i> to write on topics even if I twist the heck out of them. Drop bears? Where else would I be prodded to write about such a thing?

I've continued going to the ward (church congregation) here in Jacksonville, where my parents live. They are getting to know me again, and it's been really cool because though I only seem to come and go every six months or so, I always am made to feel very welcome. They found out I was a ham radio operator (I opened my big mouth) and they are very excited about it now. I hope I can do an activity before I leave because ... well ... ham radio's just cool. It's a good spiritual home for me, and it continues to be the same no matter what congregation I attend. I see this is a good thing; the people are different everywhere you go, but the church remains the same.

I continue to work on my thesis/wait for my advisor to edit what I have so I can submit the final draft. I can't wait to (a) figure out what I'm going to do <b>for sure</b> in my life, and (b) get done with the darn thing and school.

So that being said, all I've been doing this week has been looing at getting a new laptop (going over various stats, prices, and types), and also playing a new racing game (new for me) that I foung (it's been around for about six months). I've been crashing a lot, and causing general wrist strain (I now know how gamers feel). What a fun waste of time.

And that's about it for me. I'm listening to a report on BBC re: a gy who is protesting the minute of silence. Expect a post on it soon. Here's a preview, absolute craziness (in my opinion).
