Running on snowy pavement is frustrating.

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.
