My plans for 2010 include, in no particular order, setting up a website, getting a job/car, and keeping my academic performance consistent...
Ok, first one: no. Not even close. I have a Google Site, but I had it in 2009 as well. I want my own site on a server I own and operate. Now that I actually know about web servers, though, this should be much easier. Gonna get me a dual Xeon...
Second one: almost and no. Still not quite sure what happened with the job for which I applied recently, since it would appear that nothing went to the right people and no one got the right information, including me. I don't have a car, and don't know why I wanted one. I'm at college...which leads us to
Third: I'll let you guess the quality of my academic performance; your guess is as good as mine since I have yet to find out how I did on final exams and papers. I will, however, say that college is going better than I ever could have anticipated and my experience is pretty consistent, as I had said I'd wanted.
So, the "ten things" format may not be as viral as it was last year, but here we go. Be on the lookout for a photo album as well.
Ten things to remember:
"Whiteout," "Snowmageddon," and like terms; my car ends up in a snowbank; I end up under my car.
Limit our ethnic eateries to three - Persian, Mexican, Indian - and patronize them in a cycle.
"Anywhere Left to Turn," failure of a reception, a teacher's one-up-manship, vandalism, still no compensation.
Chem lab biodiesel success.
13 years later, saying goodbye.
The best souvenirs from Pride are kittens.
Bumper stickers only annoy your parents if they're on their car. The message is agreeable on someone else's.
Living alone with two cats and an Infiniti for a week.
Celldweller remixes...Celldweller/Sybreed mashups...Celldweller rap remixes...and on and on and on and on...
Drayer 2nd floor is my home...no matter how I come across, I love you people.

No time for life lessons or anything like that here. There are far too many. That's why I write.
Here's to 2011. As this fortune cookie thing taped to one of my monitors says, "It's high time for one of your most promising ideas."
Isn't it always?
Happy New Year.
