On Friday, I joined nine other people from the department in the Graduate Student Kickball Tournament. We came in second, losing by one run to the Government Politics team. Prior to that, we trounced the Physics team (each game was only thirty minutes long, and our first inning got capped at ten runs to allow the other team a chance to kick), and had a huge comeback against the Drama team. Unfortunately, this performance left several of us with injuries and almost unable to walk off the field. (A great game of darts at McGuinty’s and a Guinness float at the Quarry House set me right after the game, though.)

For those that haven’t heard, I was recently accepted to a Ph.D. program in Computer Science starting in the fall at the University of Maryland. So starting in August, I’ll be moving to DC for roughly five years.

Simon, Shuli, Anna and I went to a surprise party last night for a friend of a classmate of Simon.

After four years of work, some of the genomics work I did at Wheaton just got published in In Silico Biology.

Paul Helmreich’s history of Wheaton includes an insightful mention of the feelings of students from the 1938-9 school year that school was, for them, a social endeavor, centered “chiefly about men.”

In Paul Helmreich’s history of Wheaton College, I discovered that the commitment to excelling as a small college through a faculty of “adventurous spirits … who dare to try educational experiments” was made vocal in 1927. It’s good to see that the same feeling still exists on campus today.

Right on cue (a day or two early, actually), it has begun to snow. A lot. The station and couch crews threw me a very nice going away party last night at the Den which was very touching. Then on…

It’s the crunching sound of fresh snow under my boots. And watchcing the tree across the pond in the fall, when its leaves span all the colors from green to gold to red. The Lyons Den on a quiet night,…

I just realized that my thesis was completed and turned over to the Registrar just two days after Perl’s fifteenth birthday. Oh. And LyX’s handling of margins sucks. And blows. I got through printing four copies (of 56 pages each)…

The semester is wrapping itself up. Very soon, “On The Ownership of Children” will be a finished paper. Then a final copy of “An Autoscheduling Optimizer for Perl” will be printed (on super-special, acid-free, thesis paper). After that, only a…

Official word on the thesis: Good job. A bit more work on the project would make it worthy of a Masters. It’s defintely being put on hold for a while….

So I suppose I should write down what happened last (Friday) night. At about a quarter to 5am, some loser decided it would be a good idea to set off fire extinguishers in both Cragin and Metcalf. I’m not sure…

It is definitely snowing outside. As if on cue, the snow arrived just as the last of the students were leaving for Thanksgiving. Now the campus is silent, serene, and covered in snow. Tomorrow I’ll make the trek into Boston…

This campus is so devoid of thought, it kills me. My anger and frustration is balled up inside, and it feels so good to let it out at night in the frozen air, wearing boots, shorts and a t-shirt, and…

The trustee’s luncheon was wonderful, and allowed us an opportunity to discuss the issues affecting (plaguing?) the campus. There was plenty of representation for the radio station (allmost the entire staff) and the student union press (both of us),…

WCCS is doing better than ever. There are only 20 hours left in the block, 12 of which are the 8am-10am slot. This was the first semester in the history of the station that it was necessary to ask freshman…

It rained last night, and we went out to get some dinner! The novelty of it all was almost to great. Anyway, despite being shafted on our order from the “Asian” resturant, the food was good. Perhaps it was only…

My appologies for the silence. I’ve spent the past week flying across the country, and getting settled in at school once again. Classes have started, and things are starting to get back onto a normal schedule. On Thursday, Inchicore played…
