Well here it is

A while ago I decided that my armory page would contain my more serious and meaningful writing. I put plenty up there, and that was fine. But once I had set the precedent of seriousness, I realized that I no longer had any online space where I could get random, offhand, and messy.

Plus, for the time being, I am living far away from my closest friends. Writing emails only works for long-winded letter-ish exchanges, and ICQ messages are too real-time. So here I am on LiveJournal, because it has such a great range of expressive and interactive features.

I'm probably going to be moving out of Southern California in a couple of months, and up around the Santa Cruz, Sacramento, or Davis area next. I've got friends in those places, and maybe I can scare up some roommates, dip into my savings, and go back to school like I've been kicking myself to do ever since last year.

Until then, I'm going to be going on a LOT of road trips. Gas is CHEAP! And I got a new used car! Whoo!! And the first payment is due soon! GLAAGGCKK!

It occured to me last week that, if someone were to browse through my other web page, they might think I've been feeling all depressed and somber in recent times. It's actually not so.

The majority of the time I've been feeling quite chipper. I think it's because I've managed to settle my belongings in one place -- something I haven't really been able to do in almost six months. I've started getting back to all the little projects and fun stuff I've had on hold for so long. Composing music, for example. Or sorting my papers and hardware.

I've already installed my noisy CPU in the den. Drilled a hole through the wall and installed two metal plates. Seven cooling fans in that monster, and I can't hear any of them. I SO SMART!

Today, for the first time in six months, I put on my grey sweatsuit and went jogging. Something you can't do in Pasadena, 'cause the air is DEATH. Carlsbad is much nicer. There's a school nearby with a field that gets all shadowy and quiet, and this evening the stars were out and the air was crisp, and it would have been a great run except my left headphone kept slipping out of my ear.

ANNOYANCE FACTOR +5 . So I cut it short, ran home, drank 400 gallons of water, and got my ass on LiveJournal. It's nice here.

But man am I sleepy.
