A tribute to David Eddings

I just found out that he'd died. I feel bad -- he was really one of the stars of my youthful interest in fantasy. I have read and re-read the Belgariad and the Mallorean many times not to mention all his other books. I'll miss his writing.

At first I was wondering whether I'd entered a time slip and gone back to April 1st

Then I realised that I was just reading 'The Onion.' Enjoy the story of how Neil Armstrong was convinced by a conspiracy theorist that the entire trip to the moon was faked.

The kindle rocks...

It is beautiful and so easy to read. More detailed post later.

I just bought my kindle

I am supah excited. I can't wait to see it. It is part one of my wishlist from "After passing comps, I will buy..." I don't think I'm going to upgrade my phone though. I have no money left. And my dad was giving me a hard time about keeping track of my finances etc. He's going to make me keep a file! Horrors. When I have essentially been following the shoebox approach to filing all this time. I didn't have the courage to tell him that I'd just chucked three or four bank statements / credit card statements. I should just do paperless statements then he can't *make* me file. Yeah, thats a good notion. :)

Somewhat cheerfully,

A

I don't think I've ever been as happy to be wrong before...

I passed. Both. This year was brutal. The end.

I find out today

I've just spent a pretty much sleepless night. That may, however, have been due to the effects of the two large cups of coffee I drank at 10:30 last night in lieu of any dinner. I keep thinking about whether I want to pass or not. I'm not sure I'm even in my right mind now. I spent the last week recklessly spending money. On clothes and bags I do not need. I don't know what is wrong with me. I'm going to have a bath now and then I'm going to go to school and hang out there.

I am very, very tense.

My prediction -- I pass micro but not metrics. However, I truly hope that I pass both. I pray that I pass both.

Movies and TV Shows

So, I got back to dinky little college town about a week ago. I spent the succeeding days studying for micro, unpacking (very little), watching Jane Austen movies at lunch/dinner time and watching Merlin.

It was productive. As I mentioned before, micro was good. I have hopes that metrics will be equally good. We shall see after that.

was good.

Apart from the curveball thrown by MG on game theory. Dang it.

Oh well -- we'll see how I do.

Metrics now.
