Well, I haven’t written a blog post in quite some time. I keep telling myself I’m gonna get back into it, but get distracted by other things. But today is the launch of WordPress 2.7, so I must make a post! My initial reactions to 2.7 are quite positive. The look is nice and everything just seems better organized. I’m just hoping that now that they (WordPress) has completed 2.7, they will focus their time and energy in upgrading the iPhone app. Now if the new update for iPhone is as good as I’m expecting, then I’m sure I’ll be addicted to blogging all over again!
Well, since the last time I’ve posted quite a few things have happened. One of the greatest being that I got a new laptop! And not just any new laptop… a new MacBook! Oh, this machine is beautiful and I LOVE it! It took a lot to convince my hubby to let me spend the money. I am SO glad that he did! I have been so good and haven’t really spent any money since getting it. I am also going to spend lots on him for Christmas so that he can build the gaming PC he wants to build. I’m pretty sure he’ll have all the pieces he needs under the tree on Christmas morning. I’m so excited!
Also, my husband and I have completed our fist quarter of grad school! Yay! I got a B in Functional Analysis and an A in Set Theory. Hubby got an A- in Functional Analysis as well as an A in Set Theory. Normally, I’d probably be a little bummed about a B, but this class kicked my ass. I technically should have taken about 3 other courses before taking Functional Analysis, but had no choice. I had already taken the other classes that were being offered and I had to have at least 2 courses in order to fulfill my requirements as a GTA and to qualify for health insurance. I’m just glad this quarter is over, and that I passed! Next quarter should be a lot more fun since I’ll feel adequately prepared for BOTH my classes. I will be taking Automata 1 and Rings and Modules. I know my husband is very excited about Rings and Modules because he loves algebra.
Since the break between fall and winter quarters is so long, my husband and I made the drive back to California for the holidays. It was an absolutely horrible drive, but that’s ok. It’s good to be home. It took us about 11 hours to get to Vegas, then another 9 hours to get to Salinas. Our poor dogs were soooo bored. But now they’re happy because I hardly leave the house now, so I’m home with them all day
Anyway, it’s getting late so I’m gonna head to bed. Watch out WordPress… llofte will be posting more! Hopefully future posts will have a bit more of a purpose than this one. Maybe I should create a separate diary-like blog… Hmm, I dunno, probably not.
