I woke up at 3:33 ante meridian and, unable to sleep, decided to write.
I’ve been busy. I spent the last three days at Trolley’s, sleeping on his couch, and generally staying up late playing Wind Waker. It’s been an amazing game so far, and even though it seems to be too short, it’s been an unparalleled experience. I met Adam and Matt on Friday, so we went out to Minglewoods and sat out on the patio, even though it wasn’t quite patio weather yet.
Dolly and Nala didn’t get along together well. When they saw each other, they tried to stare each other down. Nala’s tail doubled in size as she made a low growl. Dolly just hissed back. Apparently, cats introduced to the same living environment are supposed to spend around the first two weeks without face-to-face contact. Dolly stayed for a few hours at Trolley’s anyway.
My trip to Hong Kong has been canceled, due to the lung virus that’s been going around. Yet another time that my trip has been canceled. Visiting Hong Kong at least once more has become one of my goals in life now, something I feel the need to do before I die.
I am now official in one of my typical “Jeff” phases, where I start to freak out near the end of the term. Progress on my final project has been difficult, not something which is not completely (or at all) my fault. I found out that I was too late in requesting a marks shift in my graphics course, so my 35% midterm now counts. This means that I will need roughly an 80% to pass the course. Since this is my final term, I may not be graduating until I can make up the three credits. I believe I have a back-up plan, which involves taking a softwarre engineering course during the summer that I can use towards my total credits. I think that means that I won’t be attending the graduation in July. Things seem very fucked up for me academically right now, and I’m worried, one of the many reasons I can’t sleep.
I tried rock climbing on Tuesday, and even though my left forearm was dead from hitting the L trigger too much, I was still able to scale a few walls. It was a great time, something that I could definitely see myself getting into. Even the act of belaying is fun, in the sense of a trust exercise. It’s just not something that I can get into right now without a job, or any convenient way of getting to the rock climbing studio.
