This is the first change I've seen since they reported recieving my transcripts almost two months ago. Its good to see life in the machine, it means the wait will be over soon. I think I'll get in, but there's nothing quite like confirmation to warm the soul and strengthen the ego (as if I need more of that!)
In other news, I got my Diff.Eq. tst back today. A 40 was an A and I got a 44.4, so I figure thats pretty good. I'm having more dust problems in photography, and since I'm working most days of the week, I hardly have time to really make prints except when I'm rushed. Finally, work is going well, except for the recent dead head disk drive controller, SmarTeam insanity, and self-extracting installs gone awry. Its a pretty good life.
Ben and I have selected movies from the Seattle International Film Festival we'd like to see. A lot of them sound pretty cool. The next step is actually buying them. Unfortunately, due to schedules and movie selections, only one of my selections coincides with one of Dan's. If we work things right, we may be able to bring that up to two. We shall see. $45 for a six pack, two between us. Anyone who wants to see the director's cut of Donnie Darko, contact me.
