My Resume

Well, Graduation is over and I am fast on the hunt for a new job. I have just posted my resume to the web. There is a link at the side of the page. If anyone would like to look at it and give me feedback, I would greatly appreciate it (the link is for a resume webpage and not my actual resume). Also, if the rare oppurtunity comes up that anybody knows of any jobs, please feel free to pass on the link to my resume or tell me about the job. Thanks.

Finished with grad school!

Well, all but finished. I still need to fill out some paper work and go through some mere formalities but I am satisfied to say that at 10:18 AM Central time this morning, I emailed my professor my final paper for my last unfinished class. This was the last of my school work and on Saturday morning, my birthday, I found out my grades. It looks like at this point my GPA is a 3.55, the best I have ever done in my life. I wish it could have been a little better. All but one of my classes that I got a "B" in I felt like I could have got an "A" but such is life. I was really busy and if I would have taken more time, I could have done it but I wanted to graduate in two years, a feat rarely ever accomplished in my department. In fact, as of right now, I am the only one that has officially/unofficially graduated that came in with me in Aug. 2004. One guy will finish up this summer and hopefully some others will do it next academic year. I even managaged to work a little bit, one job over the summer, and a semester as a GTA while attending school at KU.

So, whats next? What is always next; look for a job.

In my spare time I would like to take care of all the things I have been neglecting. Catching up with old friends and family, overhaul my computer, get caught up with my personal writing, generally clean my room, house, and things, take a little vacation somewhere (it has been two years of school work and no vacations for me), update some entries on Wikipedia, update and continue to work on my blog/possibly build a webpage, read lots of books that I have ignored because I have only been reading books for my classes, work out so that I am in shape, and lastly but not least, go meditate.

So even though I am done, I will still be busy because there is so much I put aside to earn this degree. But all in all it was definitely worth it. I really learnt a lot of big answers to huge questions that had often puzzled me, especially when it comes to religious, spiritual, philosophical and or ethical issues. I am definitely smarter and I also think more spiritual for having done this endeavor.

finished with graduation ceremony but not yet graduated

In just a few more days, just a few more pages, just a few more ideas put into my final paper and I will be done! But in the meantime, here is a pick of my graduation.

Busted Blaine

Well, I did not watch it, I was too busy working on papers for schoo but I just read Blaine did not make his goal. Said he was feeling sick, said he wasn't very strong. What do you expect after spending a week in a fishbowl?

One week in a bubble

I have always liked magic. Makes me think about the world, its possibillities, and what is real or not. So, David Blaine is under water in a giant fish bowl for a week. Says he is going to hold his breath for 9 minutes. Is that possible? Says he is going to escape from 150 pounds of chains. That is no big deal though and I am sure is slight of hand but being underwater without air? If no air bubbles come up, he might not be breathing. If they don't come up, he could still be cheating. In the end I am sure he will do it but I know that a week in a fish bowl must be rough and his hands look terrible, shriveled up and shredded and that is not magic.
