Looking behind me during Environmental Technologies I see half the class is asleep and the other half is either working on their computer or halfway paying attention.

This is how you know it is the end of the quarter.



Last Week: Summer Quarter 2012

Four days left and this quarter is over. Three tests on Thursday, leaving that night to go to CT for my cousin’s baptism.

I’ll reflect more later, but this quarter has been really weird for me. I’ve loved it, but at the same time I am not happy. I don’t think I have been happy for a while now. At least with the broad aspect of life; concerning school, I am happy.

I think the next five months will be very good for me; by moving away I think I will find myself. I need to find out when I got lost.



This has nothing to do with classes, which are going pretty well, but I (along with my best friend, Lauren) got skateboards. She got a longboard while I got a cruiser. The face of mine is CORK. Awesome, right?


This is where we practiced today; in one of the garages at UC. I can now pretty successfully go forwards and do rough kick turns.

Anyone out there have some tips for this newbie?

We got them primarily for transportation, since they are easier to carry around than a bike (although you really cannot go up hills.. And the braking system is also much different.)

I’m averaging one fall a day, ooh. I actually fell twice today. One and a half falls a day then. As long as I don’t break anything (material goods included), falling is not bad.
