This is more just a list to remind myself and try to remember. I haven't updated my journal in forever.

On July 15th

I went on a nice long walk with dddragonlady. We talked a lot and enjoyed each other's company. it was good.

On July 26th

svairini and I hosted a sort of dinner and games party at my house. That was fun too. A nice, small, quiet core group of friends showed up and a good time was had by all. Everybody (unsurprisingly) loved svairini's cooking.

On July 27th

My family had a mass birthday party, which was interesting. I remembered to get cards for my grandma and half-brothers. Then I went to help my friend, Ying-Hui, install Linux on her computer and otherwise clean it up.

On July 30th

It was my birthday. I turned 32. I didn't do anything special for it at all.

On August 2nd

maatnofret held her all-encompassing birthday party. It was supposed to be my birthday party too, but I've been feeling kind of down and depressed lately. Social things are an expenditure of energy, and I didn't feel I had the energy to invite and interact with all of my friends.

svairini showed up and came up to my computer room and played a few games of Pente with me, and that was enough. :-) Strangely, after she did that, I felt much more able to face the party and stayed up talking to people until 04:00.

Also, svairini got me a birthday present that was not a surprise, but was very appreciated all the same. She got me Elliptic Curves in Cryptography. As soon as everybody saw the book, they tried to get me to not talk about it, which was kind of disappointing because I was really excited to get it. I want to start using elliptic curve based public key cryptography for CAKE because it's more secure. svairini kindly let me explain it to her later, when nobody else was listening. I wasn't feeling in top verbal form, but I think I managed to get the idea across. :-)

Being unemployed is wearing me down. I'm glad that I have interests that keep me going and still allow me to feel useful. But, worrying about money and finding a job is stressful, and being rejected is annoying. :-(

Happy Belated Birthday as well. :)

I find that there are periods when I don't update for quite a while. Unfortunately I lack the motivation to post it all in one entry when I do have time. :)
It seems that there are so many people out job hunting at this time. Makes me wonder where all the jobs are. Good luck!

Happy bday to me and omni.

I will attempt to celebrate by graduating this year with my BS in Philosophy (yes, surprisingly - they do offer the BS in addition to the BA in philosophy; no foreign language requirement).
