So, I've been a bit busy lately with work. Yeesh. Working as head clerk for the Milwaukee phonebook distribution is, well, frustrating on good days and mindnumbingly stupid and aggravating on others. So, about half of the phonebook distributors are nice, smart people. Another quarter are at least nice people. The other quarter though... yeesh.
But enough about that, really. I mean, I spend all my days dealing with that crap, I'm sure as all hell not going to waste my evenings worrying about all that crap.
I'm really not ready to go back to Eau Claire yet. Oh, I'm sure as all hell emotionally ready to go back, don't mistake me. I want to get into the new semester and back to making progress in my life more than anything else in the world... but while I'm emotionally and mentally ready to go, there's this little thing: I haven't started to pack yet. Yeah, I'm completely disorganized. It's quite sad. I have no idea how I'm going to get all of this stuff packed up, cleaned, and ready to go by next week. Yeeaarrggg.
I've been spending most of my time working on the website for The Flip Side, the UWEC student news magazine that I write for. I became their webmaster at the end of this last spring, but really hadn't done anything with the site until now. I designed the backend based off of the script I use to run my blog, which is slowly morphing into a completed product. Since I secured the ability to redistribute my modified code of Newslead 2.0, I may consider releasing the full blown version of my Flip Side backend as Newslead 3.0 (since I've added so much to it). Honestly though, I have to make the backend a little more userfriendly, and make a little more of it less hardcoded, which the current script is to an uncomfortable degree in my opinion.
But really, y'all don't care about that now, do you. I've already bored you with my computer science crap already. You're already asleep...
Anyways, in more interesting news, I got an e-mail from Jesse Haag today. Jesse and I were really good friends when we were in junior high, but we've drifted apart (both literally and figuratively) over the years. He apparently just got married, which is pretty cool, and continues to live in a much more western region of the United States than I.
Well, I'm going to go watch the rest of the Amazing Race. I hope I have time to update later.
