Hamilton in the Winter
posted on 2011-01-31 02:41:34
Winter in Hamilton is long - long enough that you can even notice distinct stages of it if you have to deal with it over and over again, as anyone who lives here does.  Now that it's almost February, we're entering the Slush Time.  That said, it still manages to be pretty beautiful sometimes, when you're not dealing with the wind blowing through the valley as you walk home through the slush that half melted earlier.

So, on the first day of classes (the 17th of January, this post is slightly out of order), I had the good foresight to take my camera along for the day, and since it was hideously cold everything was very clear and there were some interesting light-effects with snow in the air and whatnot.  There was a cloud hovering over the stream that runs through campus that you could walk through and not see people a few feet away.

My first droid

I am typing this, somewhat slowly, on a new-to-me android smart phone. The typing is still rather slow, but not as painful as I had expected. Unfortunately, the delete button is right next to the "go to home screen button, which has already interrupted me once. That said, while typing this, I feel like I'm getting a lot faster. I also accidentally just quit this program and called my voicemail... It might be nice having it serve as an ogg player too. Now I just need to pray that I don't get totally sucked in and forget about people entirely!
Dawn of a New Semester

It's now officially Thursday, which means there are only 3 more days before the new semester starts.  If all goes according to plan, I'll be taking Intro to Quantum, a class on teaching math, and a German theatre/plays course.  My fourth course slot will be filled by independent research, because I got asked if I would like to try for honors in physics, and I certainly would!

Vegan Drinking Food Night

When I became vegetarian about six years ago, I started to learn that, while there are meat-substitutes, few of them are really the same.  Furthermore, when you're a bit repulsed by the idea of eating meat anyway, why would you want to eat something designed to be like meat anyway?
Hello world!

Finally, after many many years since my last website, I will have some space of my own on the net again.  I've been frustrated with the limitations of just having a blogger blog for a while now, and NearlyFreeSpeech.net offers quite cheap hosting that I think even I can afford.  I found help for setting up WordPress here and it's been relatively easy from there.

Right now, I'm having difficulty getting WordPress to upload images, which is, apparently, some permissions error I'll have to resolve.  I'm sure it'll get sorted out and I can show you all pictures of food I cook and whatnot.

Time to go find a good theme and generally hack about!
