Into the Void

Into the Void

The holiday has been so nice. I've eaten more than I should, stayed up later than I normally do, and slept in far longer than what any self respecting person would consider reasonable. And now it's 4:30 on "black Friday". The reality that there's still plenty of "real life" ahead just hit me like a ton of bricks.

There are two written assignments to do this weekend.
There is progress that needs to be made on a term project.
There is a programming assignment to do.
There is a test to prepare for.

I have an inkling that rather quickly I'll be sinking back into this wonderful thing called sleep debt.

I need to give a shout out to my sister Anne, who was a very able assistant on the above posted photo. We had a blast. It was really quite a bit of fun to use the camera creatively.

Indeed there is a lot to be thankful for. Books being one of them. The books in that pile represent my excuse for not bing a very faithful blogger over the past few months. Between my full time job, and my full time school, my life has been all consumed. I'm grateful to be busy, even if at times that seems like more of a curse than a blessing.

Not to be stuck up, or snotty, but I live a pretty good life. It may not all be cherries, but if I take a moment to really look at how things are, and where I am, I really shouldn't complain.

Here's to beauty, love, and many things to be grateful for.

"With a little bit of luck, With a little bit of luck,
He'll be movin' up to easy street.
With a little bit...with a little bit...
With a little bit of luck, He's movin' up.
With a little bit...with a little bit...
With a little bit of bloomin luck!
-With a Little Bit O' Luck, My Fair Lady

Things are trying to look up.

I don't have an answer to a 1024 bit Blowfish encryption key (I am still incredulous to the idea that 1024 bit keys are an option for Blowfish, but time will tell). But I do have a web application for school that isn't leaking memory, and the kernel now has a fork function that works. All in all, not bad. Not bad at all.

So I've upgraded

To the new version of blogger...

What will its future hold?

I was really hoping to find some cool new canned template I could use. Maybe that is scheduled for later.

Three hours of sleep, after being awake for 24 straight hours. Somethings gotta give.
