I've stopped myself a couple times from doing posts related to Aristotle, Aquanis and other topics that would surly bore the hell out of my friends. It makes things difficult, considering what I do on a normal day(other than the basic necessities):
1)work in the computer lab
2)read, topics being:
a)natural law(which includes Aquinas)
c)articles on above topics(yes, not a different topic... just to give emphasis to my point)
d)international relations(IGOs,NGOs... not very entertaining)
3)talk on phone
6)hangout with my bro and Julia
7)if possible... actually hang out with my friends(rarity)
If this was your life, what would you write on? Mabe I'll think of topics. Well, since something different did happen to me yesterday, I will give this a shot...
I had one of my rare times of happiness yesterday(and yes the above routine did not apply to this day... except #s 2 and 7). I went to a political science conference in College Station! No, there is no sarcasm here(not that those who know me would expect any). I had not seen these people since I left College Station this past summer, and I was rather suprised by their enthusiasm when I walked in(I didn't warn them I was coming). I was so damned nervous when I walked in... I mean I wasn't accepted into their program. I was worried about feeling ackward with the group. I ended up hanging out with the same old group of guys, and getting the hook up with info and references to possible PhD programs. There was the usual wine drinking(though I was cut off rather early because of the two hour drive back to San Marcos), and I was invited to this bad ass restraunt(all expenses paid by A&M) where I talked with one of my old profs and another good/hot friend over wine till past ten... I think my old proff got the bulk of it(I'll be suprised if he remembers the meal). I brought one of my friends that I worked with last semester(not the same good friend as mentioned above), and on the drive back home we spent the time arguing over the definition of God... the usual topic. Well, I was excited! They're fun for a group of old men.
Well, not incredibly interesting.... but my life none the less. Now time for bed. Unfortunatly I must start the old routine again tomarrow. Though I must say that the conference has given me a reminder of why I am doing this damned MA program... I want to go back to A&M.
