You could call me -heartless-, you know?

I’m definitely different.  Makes me wonder if I’m the only person in the world that thinks and feels like me.  I mean, there are a lot of people in the world.  But man, if someone else were like me, that would be unbelievable.

though there are probably people who do a good job at coming close.

Writing about yourself is quite possibly the best thing ever: you never seem to run out of things to say because you’re the best expert in the subject, with absolutely no shortage of firsthand experience! The question is, does it get better as you grow older?  During my elementary and middle school years I hated writing about my opinions and beliefs simply because I lacked enough experience to come up with anything interesting.  I love it now, but in the future is it going to get even more enjoyable because I’ll have an even larger wealth of knowledge to convey, or is it going to get boring thinking about the same things over and over again?  Knowing me, I think the former will apply, and if not I’ll find a way to make it apply.

I just finished filling out a questionnaire for my house (I’ll be living in Okada) and now I’ve got to mail it to my Resident Fellow (the “intellectual leader” of the place, different than an RA).  It was fun, I think I painted a good (albeit very small) picture of myself…and of course, I learned a bit in the process.

hot damn, this is great!  Got an ethernet crosstalk cable at fry’s for about $4 and I just used it to transfer files from my old computer.  What really impressed me is that I was able to completely transfer my windows movie maker collection data, as I’m currently working on a big project with that.

Well, the new computer (a Dell XPS 410 desktop) came in and I went over and picked up my monitor so now I’m typing this on Vista.

Considering everybody seems to hate it, it’s doing pretty favorably.  Of course, it helps a lot that I already knew to disable Google desktop, Cleartype, and of course, the UAC, and generally throw away a lot of the garbage.  There’s still some getting used to to be done, but so far it looks like that XP disc won’t be necessary.
