so i received my finaid package from BU just now. it’s better than previous years, but in this economy, it’s still not enough. essentially i’m being asked to give up my entire summer’s earnings. that just can’t happen since it’s summer – life costs money. i’m either going to have to apply for an unsubsidized loan or appeal the decision. anyone have any experience appealing? if i were to get just $1000 extra grant money, that would be enough.
last night was pretty fun. i don’t drink often so it’s fun to let go sometimes. hanging with friends – meeting new people – playing some competitive beirut – setting off fireworks and running from cops. this type of partying… it’s fun. it makes me think about how long this can last. once you grow up, you can’t do this type of shit anymore. when you’re 40, there’s no more ragers. it’s just not your thing. but i suppose by the time you get to that age, your tastes in entertainment and views on life would have changed yet again. 40 years old… that’s double my current age. life would be quite different. i guess i would go to work… come home to my kids and wife… grab a beer… surf some internet on my quantum computer and huge monitor… well, i suppose not much will change then :)
well, it’s sunday. the weather’s nice. i’m going to go find something fun to do… i have all day tomorrow to sit in front of a computer.
there’s nothing to write about except how well my life is going. i’m about to finish my 4th week at my internship – i’m learning so much – and my project is more than half-way done. this weekend is going to be filled with shenanigans. there’s still a lot of summer left – so much to look forward to… camping, montreal, end-of-season tournament, six flags, and some more.
my long-awaited blackberry tour is going to be released in ~2.5 weeks so i can finally upgrade to a smartphone (with internet). i checked out the palm pre today at a sprint store and it looks really nice. the interface is slick for sure – definitely a true iPhone competitor. i think i will upgrade to the blackberry with only a 1-year contract so i can upgrade again next summer =O maybe to the palm pre or an HTC touch pro 2…
i don’t have much content on the site now right. when i feel less lazy, i’ll add to my portfolios.
