FOG DOG

The day is not over yet but since I'm here I thought I should put something in before I forget. I posted some new pictures with the fog. I wanted to stand in the middle of the street and take a pictures of the car lights through the fog but it was bit scary. I could barely see the cars how can I expect the cars to see me? I'll just wait for another photo opt.

I took more pictures of campus, but what I really wanted was to take candid shots of ppl. It's something I really need to work on. Other then that I just took random shots like the one I took of the girl sitting in front of me. I thought her sweater and her hair gave some good contrast but when I took the picture the flash came on and a few ppl freakishly looked at me I'm not sure about the prof. I was too busy turning off the flash and taking another picture.

So the day is pretty boring just drove around to do some errands. Going to hau's place to eat dinner since he's cooking turkey and we're having a small get together before everyone leaves for thanksgiving break. I would take pictures but I really suck at taking pictures inside I blame it on the camera since I have such a hard time controlling it.

WITH LOVE FROM AMS

I've been pretty busy lately and lots of stuff has been happening. I can barely recall anything. I just remembered that I went home for the weekend to visit AMS. Those AMS ppl were very persuasive. I LOVE AMS! oh, did I tell you they were very persuasive? I just hung out with the old CS crew and other NOVA friends. It was nice until I had to go home and sleep on the couch. Yes I missed my bed. I hate having to wake up in the morning with a stiff neck and shore shoulder, or is it the sore neck and stiff shoulder? Either way it sucks having to sleep on the couch. I find it surprising that I was able to keep warm with just a bath towel.

I spent most of last night working on my InfoVis presentation on InfoCanvas. Took me longer than I thought, as usual! I did the presentation this morning. It went okay, I put some humor into it and the class enjoyed it or so I assumed. You know what happens when you assume right? I just personally thought i did a decent job since I'm terrible at public speaking. Just the thought of speaking in front of the class makes me nervous. Initially when i started I got nervous but I relaxed soon afterwards and did what great orators do, speak to the audience and picture them nude! alright scratch the nude part b/c there are lots of hairy grad students.

After class I ate my part 1 of my lunched and watch "Roommates" I can honestly say this is a very touching story. It really got to me, lets leave it as that. Then I just went to pick up Ryan and we walked around campus to take pictures. Soon afterwards I did my normal routine of going to the gym with vinh and bert, then cooked dinner, watched tv, and here I am. yes the easy college life.

I have also included in this section more random pictures that don't really fit any where but I thought someone would like to look at them. Personally I just do it for myself when i get bored i can look at my pictures again. random pix
