I smell a bowl

A bowl game, that is, right around the corner.

From the AP, via Yahoo Sports:

Coach Tyrone Willingham’s Huskies have already doubled their wins total from last year, his first as Washington coach.

Washington (4-1, 2-0) scored three times in the final 6:07 of the first half to take a 21-3 lead and held Arizona (2-3, 0-2) to minus-7 yards rushing.

Washington, though clearly no national-title contender this year, is certainly on the up-and-up. I take it as further validation Tyrone Willingham is indeed the right man for the job.

Classes

I don’t know if I’ll ever get over the first-day excitement of looking forward to everything I’m going to learn in a quarter. What I know I will get over is the unhappy transition from learning bliss to learning drudgery — the reading, studying, and writing that goes into making the grade. Two sides of the same coin, though, and overall, it seems well worth it.

The Day Before Classes

After a dubiously neccesary but well-intentioned Bioengineering Junior Orientation yesterday, classes start today. It was a lot of fun to see everyone again, especially Alice, Christine, and Dennis. We yukked it up the whole time and enjoyed ourselves despite the doughy pizza and overlong soliloquies.

Afterwards, I headed home, played my last (in all likelihood) CS:S for the year, and started to fix up some dinner when I got a call from Maria, who had arrived home after work to find no food left at her sorority. So I invited her over and we enjoyed Halibut, Rice, and Corn, which was quite good in my opinion. Afterwards, she gave me a tour of her sorority (stuffed to the gills with girls — amazing!), and we walked a little around campus before calling it night.

Today is the first day of classes at the UW. My first begins at 9:30, and my last ends at 6:20. I have all four lectures today (and every M/W/F), with one break in between the two blocks, followed by a three-hour lab. Its one of those schedules that is just intense enough that I can brag about it, but doable enough that I’m not too scared (yet).

And with that, I’m off!

Its Good to Be a Husky again

Wow, what an exhillarating win! I pity the fools who I saw leaving the stadium early, unless they happened to go home to watch it finish on TBS. I learned long ago, after turning the TV off in disgust when the dawgs were down big in the second quarter against Michigan, that you don’t give up on the Huskies, not when they come back to win in the 4th quarter. And this time that lesson paid off. Now I feel that I can really look forward to the three games I am planning on attending in person.

These Sixteen Hour Days are Killing Me

Tweaking Out

I made some optimizing and security changes to the Apache config files. Let me know if I broke anything.

Untired

I had a ridiculously hard time getting to sleep last night. Right bout the time I had decided to just stay up all night, I fell asleep, only t wake up about 5 hours later feeling surprisingly good. It is amazing the trouble and power of that little thing called sleep.
