So far so good.

Yeah it's an ancient cliche, but it fits perfectly. Today is my third day of classes at Oakland University and I'm pleased overall at how things have gone.

To date, I've only missed one assignment: I failed to realize that the workbook assignments in my Japanese class did need to be done and turned in. I wrongly assumed they were for practice. Fortunately, the instructor excused it this time around because so many of us failed to do it.

My final class for the day is Film and Formal Analysis in about 30 minutes. Today's class should go by fairly quickly because we're watching the film Stagecoach. But I'm not really looking forward to Monday's class because it seems to drag on. Nonetheless I think I'll do ok there as well.

Why I Love Google...

I'm not going to go into details, because any of you familiar with the internet and internet memes will figure it out quickly, but here's a link as to why I love Google:

The Start of September

Ok, so this year is flying by, and I still haven't caught my breath. This is just going to be a quick post to bring you up to date on what's going on...

My first class at Oakland University has been postponed by a teacher strike at the school...

The Michigan Works department has received all the paperwork they need for the grant they were saying I was approved for, but I haven't heard a peep out of them, and they don't like it when you call them. In the mean time, I got a student loan, paid for school this semester, books, and even bought myself a notebook computer.

I've been doing a fair amount of work for my former employer, though not enough to get me out of debt, or even really pay this month's bills.

I've got an intriguing offer from a certain friend of mine to be a part of a startup, and I've decided I'm going with it. More on this at a later time.

My nephew is now down in Fishburne Military School, and is already doing 100% better than he did last year in public school in Romulus, Michigan.

I'm really enjoying the closed beta of an upcoming PS3 shooter. It's not top of the line in graphics, concept, or anything really, but the combinations of what it does have are addictive to me.

We have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes. It's dark outside. And we're wearing sunglasses.
