People often say they\’re very busy when they\’re at home. Especially during the holidays or winter break.
Normally if you asked me, I would respond that I am bored to tears. That I would wake up every day wondering what I would do with all this free time on my hands. All this time without any schoolwork or time-pressure projects.
But this year. It\’s all different. I have in my posession both season 1 and season 2 of 24. Plus special features. That\’s 13 dvds. And approximately 49 hours of mindless tv. The other day I dreamt that I was a CTU agent. And I bought myself an early Christmas present. The entire trilogy of LOTR. Special extended edition. That\’s why I haven\’t gotten around to sending my cards. No xmas shopping. No phone calls. No visits. No e-mails. And less blogging. Because of my lovely black box called the dvd player.
Hopefully I shall see you soon. That is, if the TV has grinded me into a useless pile of mush.
In other news, I got my first really well-deserved A. I haven\’t ever gotten an A in Berkeley that I didn\’t really work that hard for. And now finally at CMU, I am rewarded. But remember, grades don\’t really count in the end, right?
