Reality Check

I get to see Rachel this weekend…always a good thing. When I picked up my pictures, the fellow had given me seven prints instead of the three I ordered and paid for. So I have three bad ones, and seven good ones. My little brother saw them on the computer desk and said, “You know one of these […]

Frustrations

I took my pictures back to the guy. After about four hours of fiddling and reading about resolutions and aspect ratios, I think I finally got the image in the correct proportions. I delivered him the new image, but he made me pay again to make prints of it. Whee. So just shy of $20 and who knows […]

Huzzah

I don’t think people like reading long journal entries. I don’t blame them; I don’t think I would either unless I really cared about what was going on with the person. That, and then when somebody writes all this personal stuff everybody reads it and then there’s this awkward feeling. I mean, what are you going to […]

I’m Back

I got in at 2:00 am EDT today. Aside from the fact that I missed Rachel every minute of every day, the trip was awesome. I met a ton of great people and had the opportunity to participate in a number of unique experiences. Some of the medical related highlights included the anatomy laboratory at UCSF, where […]

National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine

The title’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it? But that’s where I’m headed this weekend: San Francisco, California, where I’ll be staying for ten days. I’m excited/nervous about it; I’ve had the chance to meet a bunch of the attendees online beforehand, but the worst part about it is that I’m going to be away from Rachel. Even if […]

The Answer to Every Question

Yes, the answer to every question is Rachel. I’m wearing a shirt that smells like her too. I got to go prom with her on Friday and spend the whole rest of the weekend at her house. It was my first time ever wearing a tuxedo, which was cool, and then Rachel was absolutely beautiful! I don’t love […]

Doublethink

Wow. I just finished reading 1984, a book written by George Orwell (of Animal Farm fame). The story has really struck me. It was one of those books that grabs you right from the beginning and carries you through to the end, and a plot where you’re hoping the entire time for something good to happen at the end and […]

It’s About Time

I’m all excited now! I finally finished something new to put up here. I’ve been working on a pretty complicated project for a while and I decided to put that aside and do something a little simpler that I could just finish. It feels good to complete something. Thanks again to darkmatterzone for allowing me to use some of […]
