this just in: an update!

A few quick updates for the update hungry:

1) I accepted a full-time job. I chose this over this. This means sometime in February (or so) I’ll be moving to Washington. Fortunately I’ve watched plenty of “Frasier” so I’m well prepared.

2) I was hit by a car. Everything is fine, except my bike, although Brian has promised to try to fix it. I need to write up a full detail of this but I need to take some pictures first, for the benefit of those not who haven’t used the crosswalk where I was hit.

3) Another Black Friday has come and gone, and once again I get into an argument outside Best Buy. Really it was the best option for entertainment anyway.

4) School is winding down. Two more weeks of classes left, two finals, then commencement. There are, I should mention, less than 12 hours between the end of my last final and when I have to show up for graduation. I hope they grade quickly.

5) My new clock is cooler than yours.

  1. Who is going to your graduation? Just your mom?

    By the way, congrats on the job.

    My mom, two brothers, sister, brother in law, and anywhere between 0 and 2 cousins. I need to actually figure out how to get more tickets.

    isnt it brother-in-law?

  4. Wow, I didn’t think you were allowed more than two guests.

    4, but extra tickets are given out if there are any. Where did you hear two?

    So.. did you inflict stigma or receive stigma after this years best buy argument?

  7. I’m not sure where I heard two, but I thought space was a premium at these events. I dunno.

    it might be two for the spring graduation, since many times more people are graduating. not too many people actually graduate in winter. but even then, it depends on which graduation you are going to. if it is the one for your college, then it will be much smaller than that of the entire campus.

    yeah, for the winter ceremony for engineering grads, they give each kid 4 tickets. if you need more, you need to have friends who are gonna have extras. also, from what i understand, on monday december 13th, at 8:30 am, they’ll be giving out the extra available tickets on a first come first serve basis where you picked up the first four. which blows, since i only need one more for myself, and that morning i have a project due and a final exam to take

    looks like shane should make some friends and get somebody to pick up that ticket for him.

    Yeah, right… let’s see how that would go:

    “Will you be my friend?”
    “Sure”
    “Do you graduate in December?”
    “No”
    “Well, screw you then.”
    Repeat.
