Aug 11Low-DotQ Summer
So, back in early May, I said I’d make great use of this summer. I’d “get stuff done,” have a “schedule.” Like all such promises, it fell through. So DotQ has languished. And it will probably continue to do so, especially since my probably-super-busy fall semester is practically upon me. But, I have two more… positive things to say.
Dec 31Looking Back on 2010
As the saying goes, it has been one hell of a year for me. A lot has happened… here’s a timeline. It should be noted that I apologize—primarily to myself—for not managing one of these last year, when it would have been much more exuberant. This year wasn’t particularly great for me outside of school. :P
I finished my fourth semester at Cal today. It was a bizarre semester. A lot of weird things happened, or were happening. I maintained an emo blog, which was good for me. I got too close to the sun and I burned myself, which was also probably good for me. I participated in NaNoWriMo, and got farther than I did last year. I lived with my brother and some friends of his, which was educational if not always pleasant. I mostly kept to myself, to my coding, to my work, to my anime, to my writing, to my room.
Sep 21Plato’s Failmacy
Hurray for post titles full of spluttering invective! For Rhetoric 103A this week we were asked to read Derrida’s “Plato’s Pharmacy,” summarize his argument in 150 words or fewer, and articulate one question we had about the text. Ever being a failure at following directions, I articulated not one question but six, at least one of which was characteristically inappropriate.
After e-mailing these off to my poor GSI, I decided I’d share them with the world, if only to show KingCrazyGenius that the Judeo-Christian Bible is not the only thing against which I enjoy railing.
