So, uh, anyway, I don't like alternative medicine. It's essentially like alternative cosmology in my mind. Or alternative cohomology - why aren't there any cranks out there who try to peddle bad algebraic topology (outside of Italy)?
Okay, PSU just got me a note that they can offer me admission. They will send me details in a couple days. I now, officially, have to think about this. It's the Cael Sanderson choice. Am chatting with some people at the cyclone end of things. I saw there was a place for rent 1 block from where I grew up for pretty cheap, I remember that house. Somewhat amusing. The neighborhood is great, actually - two blocks from the public library, right by a nice park, a couple more blocks to downtown, walkable to the grocery store if you wanted, not on the flood plain (very important when those 100 or 500 year floods happen every 5 years). Of course, it's right by the power plant, which means you have to dust a lot. But that's mostly amusing, I'm not likely to live there.
Just got out of ERT training. ERT is the people on each floor at work who, when the fire alarm goes off, tell their coworkers to head to the stairwells or whatever. I am, as always, impressed by the security team and the safety features of the building. the new video has instructions about what to do in case of a shooter (answer: GTFO). The life you save could be your own.
Okay, the next week is going to be busy. I have a couple homeworks in numerical analysis to finish off and a take-home exam. I also really ought to start work on my projects in both classes because they're due in 20 days and I will not get any work done between the 12th and the 16th because of Pascha.
I was supposed to go to the R User Group today. Eh, not sure if I can make it based on how much work I have outside of work. I'll go next month. A coworker is leaving for a much better company and is having drinks, but they start early, so I'll pop in for one and then head home to do some work.
Anyway: hope the wifing unit gets a jorb shortly after we arrive wherever we end up. Otherwise, we slowly bleed moneys. So, it's not too bad: we'll have plenty of reserves and it's slow. But positive cash flow is better than the alternative. I'm glad that rice plus beans is wholly acceptable bachelor chow if I add some salsa and sriracha.
