Not a lot has been going on, as usual, but I haven’t updated properly in months, so the not a lot adds up to a fair bit. Let’s see.
My grandfather’s still in the hospital. Haven’t seen him in ages, but I hear he’s doing well. I guess he just likes it there.
Both my sister and my mom are done with exams now, so I expect a lot less peace and quiet from now on.
My sister already almost managed to throttle our bandwidth by going half a gig over the download limit, but I changed our internet provider plan thing to be less restrictive. I like knowing my parents’ passwords.
They didn’t freak out about when I told them, which vaguely surprised me. Maybe they didn’t know what I was talking about. Either way, monthly fees are the same.
Climate-wise, temperatures are more sane. Still vaguely too hot, but nothing pantslessness won’t solve.
Online drama-wise, I stopped going to #radio-kol because it’s gone to shit and complaints have pretty much been dismissed with “I don’t have a problem with it, therefore there is no problem; suck it up and deal, because clearly you’re just being childish”. Maintaining that the problem isn’t worth addressing when two people who have been regulars for, what, a year and a half now, think it’s serious enough to just leave entirely is a bit retarded. Just a tiny bit.
But yeah, that discussion is essentially over anyway.
Muffins is still up, though I haven’t updated in ages. Despite a fairly huge flood of new registrations a while ago, multi abuse is next to non-existant, which is good.
I guess I really should work on new content. I’m perfectly happy working on code, but thinking of, drawing, and writing new adventures and puzzles and whatnot is meh. The northlands have been on the verge of rolling out for a while now. They mostly need more adventures.
KoL-wise, I’m finishing up my HCO runs before NS 13. Just one more after this. Dunno if I’ll make it, but meh. Moving slowly, but not as slow as all that, really.
Also playing Cawd’s account for a few runs. Doing a lot better than I was on my own at that point. Technically the current run is the last one I’m supposed to do on his account, but I’m not sure he’ll be willing to pick it up again afterwards. I don’t mind either way.
Education-wise, I’m still trying to decide what to do next year. It looks like I’ll be sticking with the KUL, and doing something Computer Sciencey. A lot of the things that bothered me about the PHL don’t exist at the KUL (most importantly the fact that the PHL isn’t within walking distance of a train station, and the amateuristic approach to technology (“WI-FI means the antenna is built in.”), and the near uselessness of the diploma), but the KUL curriculum has some problems of its own (mainly the math bit — I like math in the “solve general problems using your extensive knowledge base and pure logic” sense, not so much in the “know these theorems by heart and be able to recite them hopping on one foot while writing with the pen shoved up your nose” one; granted, I have no idea what college-level math looks like).
Right now, the choice is basically between the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering. Engineering has less math but more bullshit.
I’ll probably end up flipping a coin for it, but right now, I’m leaning towards Science.
Finally, you know how someone can make you explode with joy just by existing? I didn’t, but I do now.
And I don’t mean that as a euphemysm for ejaculation, though she does that too.
tl;dr, I know. Sorry. :P
I should update more often.
