Just in case you weren't sure how big a nerd I was: Song Chart

I discovered new meme, via the SDMB, where you take the lyrics of a song, and represent it as some sort of chart or graph. These range from scatterplots to bar graphs, pie charts to flow charts, and represent all kinds of songs. Some of the best ones, in my opinion, are An Analysis of Our Discussion, I don't care too much for money..., Jay-Z's current problems, Test Results, deepness of cuts, class DancingQueen, kung fu fighting.



There is extreme comfort in cyclical patterns. When you know exactly what will happen next because you've seen it before, far from being boring or irritating, it is actually quite comforting. When times are good, we kick back and talk about how great it was the last time around, or about the times when things were a complete disaster, but it's funny now, in retrospect. And no matter what happens at practice, or on the bus, or in an airport, we all know that the cycle will complete itself and everything will be as it was soon enough.



I think part of the reason I'm always up late is that I like being alone. When I'm in my room, even though I'm not necessarily doing anything particularly unusual or secretive, I just feel weird that my roommate is there, as if he's watching me. Maybe it's because I'm often watching him, not judging, just curious what he's doing. Usually watching something, but what is he watching? For some reason I often have a desire to know the answer. Out in the living room, late at night after everyone has gone to sleep, is one of the few times I can feel like I'm alone. I keep meaning to spend some time in the "backyard" of Century, particularly since I won't have one next year. Maybe I should also do some studying in one of those closed-off rooms in the library. Or in Doheny somewhere, since Leavey is too bright and everything. I'm just really bad at making plans and sticking to them.


Pet Peeve

When people mix up dates and days of the week. For example, my next math assignment is due on "Monday, March 11" but March 11 is a Tuesday. How do you fuck this up? Look at a calendar.

Philosophy class is just starting to get interesting again after a couple weeks of being kind of tedious. I think the idea that a complex enough computer can be, at least for all intents and purposes, conscious, is really fascinating.

I'm going to Northrop Grumman on Monday for an interview for a summer internship. It'll be something software-related but I don't really know anything else. I feel like my strategy needs to be to prove that while I don't know a whole lot, I can learn new things really quickly. Also I'm totally a team player.
