It's October and ...

I can't tell. The leaves are still green, it's what is considered "summertime" by Bay Area residents - warm, dry and sunny. I'm getting what I guess is an extended summer. I'm not complaining, although I definitely feel like something's wrong. I've lived with Fall my entire life - even in Colorado, the air changed, what few leaves there were showed their color, and, well, you knew when October rolled around. It still feels like, say August to me here - at least the weather is pretty much the same (or a little warmer) than it was when I arrived.

Taizé

As I was travelling across country, I had heard about Brother Roger, who was stabbed at an evening service in the Taizé community in France. I didn't know much about the community, or the form of worship, but I'm learning more.

Hitting my stride

Well, I'm into week 3, and I don't feel quite so at sea as I did last week, or the week before. I've finished 3 papers (yes, I've had 3 papers to write so far, fairly minor) and am working on the 4th. My major computer is in the shop, which is annoying, to say the least (no movies, probably a good thing given the amount of reading and writing I have to do: 6+ more papers in the next 3 weeks!) It should be back in my hands by the end of the week.

The courses are just fascinating, and I'm really digging them. Here are some highlights:

A confession

You'd never know it, but I'm an online quiz junkie. One blogroll I generally read everyday (and am on) is the linuxchix blogroll. Several people regularly post quizzes they've taken, and the results. I take the quizzes, but never post the results... until now.

So here is the completely unsurprising result to a quiz about political philosopy:

Blog Notes

There are some changes afoot. First off, I killed off my 3rd (most short lived, but, surprisingly, most visited) blog, Pearlbear's Technology Desk (the posts will remain up, but I won't be adding to them.) My brain just isn't in technology right now. Believe it or not, I stopped reading Slashdot, and can barely make it through my Engaget RSS feed before closing the window. I know, what happened?

Big Shot of Antidote

I was talking with a friend this morning, and I came up with that phrase in my head, and I thought it was a good thing to blog about.

New Photos

A bit of distraction from the continuing horror of Katrina. Some pictures of my new home and school are in the album "PSR" - just uploaded. Enjoy.

Friday Cat Blogging (sorta)

Well, I don't have any cats to take pictures of right now, but a friend sent me this link, called Cats in Sinks. It's hilarious. I think it almost counts, even though these are cats not connected to me at all.

Ack!! Part II

I was sitting having dinner this evening with a group of folks in my dorm. Very nice group, nice conversation. One of them, someone who'd been around a while, said "when I was in your position I was panicked." I said "I'm close, but not there yet."

Well, just a few minutes later, thinking about the whole conversation (we went everywhere from what courses everyone is taking, to someone's upcoming ordination, to internships, to what one of the D.Min students is doing for a thesis....), I'm getting panicked. Seriously.
