Studying for a big test isn't fun.
Posted Apr 8, 2004 - 0:18:26

I'm taking a five minute break from studying for my History 125 midterm tomorrow. I'm pouring through the text books, reviewing my notes... you know, the standard pre-test cram sessions... it a bad thing if I never noticed that my Professor was one of the authors of my text book until now? Now I know why he tends to go back to that one the most... he helped write the damned thing.

Maybe I should spend the most time studying that one out of the three...

Anyways, I'm miffed that West Wing wasn't on tonite. Really, how many times do I need to accidentally tape the same Law and Order reruns? And it's not like it was new Law and Order episodes, I would have accepted that, but they're both reruns I've seen a dozen times... Damn you NBC! And it's not like I have Bravo here - so I can't even watch a rerun tonite.

Want... West Wing... geh.

I talked with Erin for a while today, which was nice (sort of... long story). It mostly showed me that I miss hanging out with her. I need to remedy that.

On the "What's Trae Paying Attention to" front, I have a couple of things about voting to mention. First is that one of the companies making electronic voting machines has decided to release their source code to the public. No, it's not open source - but it will let anyone find the glitches and (hopefully) report them. It's a step in the right direction that was needed to be taken, as we all know what happens when a company closes off their source code (*cough*Microsoft*cough*). The other is a much more interesting piece about whether we're voting - or the machines are. It's definitely worth a read (and I think that even Topher could appreciate it). I, of course, am a Civics nerd, so I find it all very fascinating.

Like I said, I'm a nerd.

An interesting piece in Wisconsin news is that a new law will allow cancer patients (or their families) to donate their leftover medications so that other cancer patients can get them cheaper. This is, in my opinion, a brilliant idea. I'm honestly just surprised that no one had thought of this before. Waste not, want not and all that jazz.

Well, I bid you a fond farewell, I have to dive back into a copy of "Documents in World History" and get back to work.

Oh yeah, and Barrett won the election yesterday. *grin*
