(The title is a quote from my Astrodynamics II professor about what this class should do for us. The frightening part is that he's really serious.)

Whew. Got through the first day of three back-to-back-to-back classes, and it's just going to get crazier. I've got a half-hour between the first two, but no time between the second, and the 12:30-starting class has a professor who won't let us eat lunch during class. So I guess I won't be eating lunch on Tues/Thurs. at all. Sigh. That means I have to get up in time to make breakfast, since I really shouldn't go until 2:30 pm without eating at all.

I only have to buy one book this semester. Yay! My finances are greatly improved by this, since I haven't bought a textbook that was less than $80 in years, and most of them are around $100. And there are a *lot* of better things I could do with that money. Like eat, and pay rent. And buy non-required books. I think I'm going to be ambitious and buy a copy of all of Archimedes' works in the original, and try to keep up my Greek that way. (Two of my profs spent a fair bit of class time praising the work of Archimedes today. Kind of strange, but par for the course around this department.)

*Yawn* I was going to feel disappointed that Fractal is going over to a friend's house for Buffy, and so I'll be having a very quiet night (since Catullus doesn't usually show up for Buffy anymore), but I think it'll be nice. I haven't eaten dinner in my own apartment since, hmm, last tuesday? Or possibly earlier than that. It's been a little hectic.
