Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

As much as I've enjoyed this week, what with learning very challenging material both curricular and extra-, I'll be glad when the weekend arrives. I love the fact that it always does, right on time.

Oh, yeah, I have the CBEST on Saturday morning in Oakland. Better not forget that! People who know me, remind me of this, please!

Recently, in my Russian class, I smelled that many of my classmates were drinking coffee. Even though my parents both drink coffee, and often, my mind most strongly associates coffee with the summer I volunteered at KUOP six years ago. The smell of strong coffee permeated both floors, all day, every day. Scott Mearns, then station engineer, explained that he could only drink decaf for his health. He often traveled to Mt. Oso, near Modesto, to conduct maintenance on the KUOP transmitter. Once, his kiddies and wife made him a piece of art that asked him to be careful when he was "Oso far away!"
