Running on snowy pavement is frustrating. [Feb. 5th, 2004|01:25 am]

I don't think my shoes have enough traction. It's not like I'm slipping and sliding all over the road, but, you know, when I put my foot down on the ground, it's supposed to stay where I put it until I pick it up again, not slide backwards for a few tenths of a second until my weight shifts enough and keeps it from sliding any more. It doesn't seem like it should be a big problem, and I didn't mind so much at first, but after eighteen miles (cumulative, since last Tuesday), I mind a lot more. Looking forward to warm weather and dry roads.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do in that five-week gap between school and work. There are summer research programs and stuff. For instance, there's a really cool math program that fills the gap perfectly, but they need you to have taken more math than I have, so that's out. It got me thinking, though, about whether there was something similar for computer science, and sure enough, I've found a couple of CS programs that fit the bill and have application deadlines in March. The only question is whether they'll take a graduating senior. Sometimes these things are limited to undergrads. On the other hand, sometimes they'll take any women they can get (and I plan to shamelessly take advantage of that unfortunate fact). Besides, I might be able to make a convincing argument that they should consider me a junior, since I've only been studying CS for three years.

Also, today I chopped a lot of mushrooms in Amanda hiamanda's former apartment.

Re:

Thanks. I'll watch my step. =)

I ought to be running again right now, but we're having a massive snowstorm and I'm sick. =(

If it makes you feel any better (or makes you laugh), yesterday I slipped and fell smack on my ass in front of the McCormick Tribune Center. It was beautiful. One minute I'm walking to class, minding my own biznatch, and then next, my ass is on the sidewalk.

Re:

It doesn't. I'm still really sick, and my head feels like it's going to explode.

But thanks anyway.
