A month into the new semester, and several things have happened:
1. I discovered a disturbing love of computer science. To the point that I'm considering doing a comp sci/English double major, which would require four semesters of math classes (and a fifth year of college).
2. I brutally cut a number of sections out of Kinesthesia, the '06 WriDay novel, to the point that it's now only a meager 79 pages long and missing huge chunks of plot. Now I'm in the midst of a bet with my best friend from high school, wherein we each attempt to write 30 pages of one novel during the month of Feb. It's not quite NaNoWriMo, but with the amount of work I have this semester, it's about all I can manage. Loser takes the winner out to lunch. I'm unclear on what happens if we both win.
3. I began a second job working in the Dining Hall as "Cook's Help". My inaugural shift was a 6 AM-8 AM shift, which consisted primarily of coring tomatoes, removing the moldy spots from said tomatoes, dicing bell peppers, and squeezing large tubes of guacamole into bowls. I think I'm off guacamole for a few weeks.
4. I began writing a food column for the Scarlet & Black, titled "Ice Cream is Rich in Protein". First column contained recipes for glazed carrots and pan-roasted broccoli.
5. I also switched into a French writing/speaking seminar course, so as to improve my French on the off chance that I manage to snag a Watson Fellowship. Here's hoping.
6. I'm desperately searching for a [paying] job this summer, preferably in Portland so as to avoid paying for housing. Let me know if you've got any leads that you're not following yourself.
Back to work!
