summer

took my final for my class today... yay! summer vacation! back to only having the 40 hour a week job! I don't feel really great about the final, it was kind of random. We got to use a sheet of notes but as luck would have it there were some key concepts that didn't make my sheet because I just didn't expect them. damn.

i've got this sinking feeling too that it's Not Really Over. I mean, not only did the class suck, but I've got to retain all of that for the next one, which will be next spring, because in the fall i'm signed up to take differential equations. now there's a class that will probably inspire some drinking.

I've got to review calculus this summer. My last math class was in the fall of 1999. It could be worse, I know.

I should go running but I've got nasty blisters on my feet from last time. Not cool.

Hey - can I just mention that if you know me in real life, summer would be a good time to visit? I'm serious, you people gripe, bitch and complain that I'm not in Kansas City enough, but who ever comes to wichita? There's fun stuff to do here! Our zoo is better, our shopping is... available, you can hang out with the famous spacefem. it's summer vacation, make exotic wichita your destination! i've been feeling like saying that for a while, it just never quite got out until now.

You know, I didn't even think to say "hi" when we were in your neck of the woods. We only made it to Kansas City, but stil..

If I knew you, and lived over in that neck of the country, I'd come see you... lol

diff eq is time based calculus. it was a lot of fun and much easier than i expected. shouldn't be too much of a prob.

i met a princess today, just bragging.

exotic wichita? well, i guess there is a college there, so it stands that there would be something fun.

Nice museums, too (I was particularly partial to Exploration Place, but that's just me; I really wanted to visit Old Cowtown, too, but it was November), lots of interesting things nearby, and - OK, only exotic from my perspective, but a big win - at least one cinema where they bring you beer. Or root beer, more importantly, which is virtually impossible to get in any quality in the UK. But I'll stop this line of thought before I start sounding like the tourist board for strange British people.

And then there's the flat. Granted, that's mostly outside the city itself, and other places on the Great Plains also have a lot of flat, but for distant visitors... well, let's just say that I used to think East Anglia was flat, but Kansas introduced me to entire new orders of flatness. It took quite a while for the "Whoa! Sky! Horizon without landscape in the way!" effect to wear off, and I'm not even slightly agoraphobic.

What about differential equations? How to make them up, how to solve them? This sounds fun. I wish somebody would pay me to learn those instead of to do boring things.

What if we don't know you in real life?

then you probably don't have quite as much motivation to visit :) but if you're ever in town, let me know and maybe we'll do lunch.

Engineers are allowed away from their desks for lunch?
