Re: Welcome November/Willkommen November

@Val This semester I managed to do better than in previous semesters. Since I'm taking 12 credits this semester, I'm able to rest except during midterms or when I have papers to hand in. I'm sure your wedding will be absolutely exciting :2thumbsup: Today, I was able to measure more rainfall...from t...

Re: 2012 - doomday

@Bene I didn't know about the center of the Milky Way Galaxy being part of the alignment. That could be an interesting point. But previous civilizations and people in history have unsuccessfully attempted to predict the end of the world. It didn't happen yet, and I think other factors may cause the ...

Re: Defending dreams in the face of despair

@Jorge I'm glad you liked it. I admit it was a feeling I wanted to let out, and looking at the geology, some video games and cartoons made me want to live dreams and ideals that are hard to achieve in the current system. It's true that I am too morose and rigid. I'm trying to be less morose and be m...

Re: Defending dreams in the face of despair

@Anders A friend of mine (he intends to run for office, and he would make a great colleague) presented me the Venus Project in November 2008. At first I was skeptical, but in December or so, while I was eating some home-made soup, I realized that the amount of diverse ingredients required to make it...

Re: Defending dreams in the face of despair

@Anders Last year, I supported Mike Gravel, but I realized that he barely scratched the surface, and that I absolutely had to form my own path and think for myself (it's very hard to think freely in a world dominated by political parties, politicians asking people to focus on their egos and ideologi...

Re: Defending dreams in the face of despair

Thanks for the encouragements, Pat. I want to make a contribution, and I care because I honestly feel like life deserves to be better than what is there now. Finding a place in the world has been quite a struggle in my case, and I sometimes walk towards the edge of cynicism (I tend to teeter back an...

Defending dreams in the face of despair

Listening to some music (especially lyrics to Edgar and Sabin's theme from Final Fantasy VI, one of my favorite games, especially because of the character development http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYpE5OXbsvo ) and looking back at my excursions brought me some inspiration and some light against the...

Re: Welcome November/Willkommen November

Hello everyone. On Thursday, I got my midterm back in watershed. I'm happy that my 73/100 was a B (instead of a C) since the average of the class was 75 (and it's a 400 level class. So the professor curved the exam). :) I'm also making progress on my thesis project. I worked on making a concentratio...

Re: What are your hobbies/interests

I like watching anime (especially Maison Ikkoku...the storyline is really well done), thought-provoking cartoons like Daria, reading, going on geological excursions, watching squirrels having fun (ever since college, I started realizing how special squirrels are), doing karate, watching movies, phot...

Re: Ni Hao Shiyue / Hello October!

Good morning everyone.

Thanks Anurag. I hope you had a nice Diwali. :)

@Diana I'm glad you had a great time in Turkey.

Midterms are finally over. So I can breathe a little bit.
I still have to work on my project, but the pace is easier to handle this week.

Re: Ni Hao Shiyue / Hello October!

Good morning Val. :) I'm pretty sure the wedding cake will be delicious. This week was pretty chaotic (start of midterms etc.) I couldn't get enough rain for any data (I was told that a drizzle was not worth getting yesterday), but at least I have the equipment now ready for a time when there is sig...
