Things on my mind

  • Found an apartment in Mountain View. It’s kind of expensive, but close to work, so hopefully it’s worth it. Plus it has air conditioning, which will be very useful if this weekend is any indication of the summer weather. On the plus side, maybe the rainy season is finally over.
  • Moving means that I have to start throwing things away. Packing all this stuff up will take forever. It was probably a bad idea to buy backpacking gear that I won’t even use on the Europe trip right before moving.
  • I think I might throw out this stockpile of old hard drives. I started the erasing of them, but it seems like it’ll take quite some time to do these secure erasing passes. Considering one pass takes hours, maybe I should’ve chosen a slightly less aggressive wipe.
  • Day by day the end of school draws near. This time around, I don’t really feel like graduating.
  • This importance sampling project for computational biology is driving me crazy. I just can’t seem to focus long enough to make any real progress on it.
  • Can’t tell if I’m in love or not, especially because the “with whom” part is elusive. I hope life sorts itself out for me at some point, hopefully soon.
