Why hello there

My dear Livejournal,

I'm sorry that I've been seeing that nasty Facebook behind your back. I never meant it to turn into something, especially since FB is so temperamental and has poor functionality, but, you know, everyone else is doing it so I wanted to as well. I never meant to hurt you.

To be honest I haven't been spending all my time with FB. I'm back in school now, trying to finish my degree, but it's going slowly. I've just been taking one or two classes these past semesters because we are also doing a lot of work as our mega-house-remodel comes to a close. Yes, unless something goes terribly wrong we will finally be in our new house by the end of the year! But more on that after it actually happens. I've got two or three weeks left of school and I need to keep my grades up. Right now I'm taking the second semester of General Physics and, surprisingly, I'm liking it. Physics 2 is a lot easier than Physics 1 for me; maybe it's because topics covered (electricity, magnetism, mirrors, lenses, relativity) make more sense or are more intuitive? (Wait, did I just use "relativity" and "intuitive" in the same sentence?) Next week I register for Spring semester.

I'm continuing to dive at the California Academy of Sciences and I generally do two to three dives on the mornings when I'm there. Well, technically my first "dive" is snorkeling in the lagoon with the sharks and rays, doing cleaning and maintenance and, if I'm really lucky, finding the occasional shark tooth. I usually do the Wednesday morning Philippines Coral Reef dive show and recently did my 100th presentation.

I have also been listening to a lot of music, although not much of it is new. I saw three different Rush concerts as they hit the West Coast on their more recent tour and that wasn't enough! I wanted to go to more but between bad timing and not planning ahead (read: buying good tickets would have been expen$$$ive) so instead I will plan on seeing lots of shows the next time they tour here.

Shortly I will be heading out to play D&D. I've been playing with this group for some months now and we've recently started a campaign using the Pathfinder rules. Our group has guns and we travel around on a boat that is also capable of spaceflight. It's a lot like Firefly.

I promise I will keep in touch.

When are you diving at the California Academy of Sciences? My family will be in town and I'd love for them to visit when you are there.

Good luck with school!

I'm there almost every Wednesday morning, and usually do the dive show at 11:30am. If you plan on coming let me know and I'll be sure to do the show.

And thanks!

Oooh Firefly role playing! Sounds like a blast! Good luck with finishing up your classes in the next couple weeks.

You and Gerry should hang out. You have Rush and Pathfinder in common. And Rock Band. :)
