I’ve spent the better part of today doing things I’ve always wanted to do but have been putting aside because of law school. Today, I:
- Helped set up the house’s WiFi. It’s not yet fully set up, and there are a few kinks in the armor, which have come about mostly because the antennae on the router are a bit weak. The signal can’t punch all the way through my room. Although I’m writing this on my bed mostly thanks to my efforts earlier today, I’m still unable to get a consistent signal or get my file-sharing to work. Maybe tomorrow will bring better results.
- Finally got around to watching Heroes. Heroes is the new mutant superhero meets Roswell meets Buffy sans cheese drama on NBC. My cousin Michelle’s guy Rico’s been egging me to watch this series ever since they started dating a few weeks ago. So far I’ve resisted because (a) he and every other fake-DVD obssessed guy I know tells me it’s really good; (b) seeing as Rico knows one thing or two about film, I kinda believe him; and (c) I’ll get as hooked on it as I did on Rome when we bought the DVD. Just to make this last point clear, immediately after watching the entire first season of Rome, I flunked my Civil Law Review II midterms. Watching Heroes at that time was definitely not in my best interest. Watching it now (my wife and I hooked through four episodes and as with all series I really, REALLY like, I’ve gone on to Wikipedia to read and read about it), I’m definitely SURE I’m glad I didn’t start watching in the middle of the semester.
- Caught up with old high school friends. I’ve scheduled to meet a few old friends this weekend, and as I’m not sure as to how things will turn out, I’m hoping it turns out all for the best. Nothing is exactly going as planned, but if there’s one thing that I’ve learned in close to three decades on the planet, it’s that nothing ever goes as planned.
I also tried getting my i.ph site up, but something’s terribly wrong with their password recovery feature. I personally think the site’s trying to do too much right now, trying to be a social networking site and a good blog writing site at the same time. It’s not doing a good job at the moment. Maybe in a few months it’ll have worked out its kinks. I hope it does, because it seems like a really promising site concept.
