These folks make snails look downright hyper...

I finally heard back from the grad school folks at UTEP (just 1.5 weeks after they said they'd be in touch). My application has been forwarded to the CIv E department for consideration for next Spring. I'll hopefully hear back from them sometime in the not too distant future (i.e. before next Spring ;).

I got my Star Wars DVDs this afternoon and ended up watching Ep IV and fully enjoying ye olde surround sound and mega bass. Ahhh... the joys or using the basement as part of the sub-woofer (hehehehe ;).

More to write soon, but I'm tired. Sleep now.


Good Luck to you re: school. It will all work out, but unfortunately, these things take time. Can I come watch Star Wars with you??? Pretty please?
Yeah, I know it'll work out. I just can't stand the waiting. A long time ago I realized that I actually preferred being rejected (in any sense) than waiting around not knowing (although oddly enough, I do prefer acceptance to rejection :-p )

WRT Star Wars and/or movies in general, sure thing, you're welcome to come over anytime... the drive might take a while though :-p
i've heard utep is notorious like that.
This is my first time dealing with them in this context. Last time around I was right up against a deadline and they barely got things sorted out in time for me (but there was so little time to begin with that I couldn't tell if they were unusually tortoise-like)

Eh. The big thing in UTEP's favor right now is that they're an easy 7 minute drive from my house and since I am commuting to work now, going after work and coming home afterwards is actually pretty easy.

"Ahhh... the joys or using the basement as part of the sub-woofer (hehehehe ;)"

ahhHHHH! this reminds me of that year in the 4th floor suite! when my room was kinda like your basement! hey, turns out el paso is about a 12 hour drive from LA.

Re: "Ahhh... the joys or using the basement as part of the sub-woofer (hehehehe ;)"

Ahhh those were the days :-p

Heh, in that case, you should drive out here someday.
