it occured to me yesterday as i was walking into lab and trying to figure out what day it was that it's october already.

that means three more months and it will be 2006. can you believe that? three more months. that's nothing. i'll be 26 next year, which isn't an especially nice sounding age to be. 25, fine; 27, fine; 30, fine. but 26 has no ring to it. it's a lame age to be, frankly, and i'll be it for a whole year. not that that year will last long. they never do. pretty soon it will be october 2006 and i'll be writing this post all over again.

and i'll be in my fifth year of grad school and i'll want to cry. i already want to cry.

Hey, you have a great blog here. I know this has nothing to do with your site but I have a blog which you can see by going to you can help me out with it? I'm finding it hard to find something I want to write about. Any help would be great.

I also have a work at home site. Its all about, need I say it, working from home. I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway take a look see what you think.

Keep up the good work, I'll be back to visit. Adrian

Wow, catswym! You are really getting popular! Will you remember us little people who knew you before susan hanson took an interest in your blog?

Anyway, I think spam rocks.

Well, the highlight of my 26th year (at least so far) has been meeting the most awesome cat in the whole world... so I'd count being 26 a win for me. :)

susan hanson...who's susan hanson?

ah, the power of the edit.

you can call me a censor if you must but susan hanson is being erased from the blogosphere.

I know what will cheer you up: I've been pursuing my BA since 1990! And I'm going to be turning 34 next month! Yay, me!

gah. actually that's kind of...depressing. what if i'm doing this for the next fifteen years! :P

hmmmm... i can't decide if 34 is a good number or bad number. 32 seems good. 35, definitely good. 33 and 34, not so much. but since you're going from 33 to 34 i guess it doesn't make much difference. ;)

I'm wondering if there is a formula for determining which years are good and which are bad. Then I could write a function to handle all of this for you.

Anyway, 33 wasn't such a bad year for me. A lot of good stuff is happening and I think a lot of good stuff will happen before I hit 34. But we'll see.

wow. now i have people censoring themselves. just call me big brother.

good things before 34, and that's just a month away--sounds promising!

oh, i'm not saying those years are prone to be bad years, just years where the number doesn't sound great.

Blame that on my lousy proofreading skills. I usually notice mistakes right after I hand something in to a Prof. or post it on the web or click "send" on an email.

33 may well turn out to be a banner year. Lots and lots of answered prayers and some that may be answered quite soon if I'm hearing God clearly - which is an open question, I admit.

Anyway, I'm glad I don't need to go into my 34th year with ominous expectations. I have high hopes for it.
