|It's a trio entry tonite... sorry bout that, I really do prefer to keep one topic per entry, but I want to keep it quick, so...
I've been keeping a casual eye on this Mydoom virus (link added for those like Mom who probably don't know what I'm talking about). Actually, by this time, odds are that everybody knows about it. I don't watch news much, but I'd bet this one made it on the six o'clock.
I don't think I've been infected, mostly because I don't ever open attachments that I don't know what they are. I have, however, been getting a good laugh at BYU because it seems that it has spread like wildfire. In the past 24 hours, I've gotten about 14 emails generated by the virus from various adresses, most notably the ME department, but also a couple others. Word of warning to mom: DO NOT download attachments unless you know exactly what they are. .jpgs are probably safe (I'd hope), but I've been seeing mostly .zips coming through.
Annual scholarship dinner was tonite. We heard from President Samuelson this time, it was okay. Pretty much, I'm gaurenteed to keep going to these dinners as long as I'm here... for the free food (and it was fun to chat with Joseph Jackson). It was basically the same message as normal of "you are amazing people, don't let it go to your head, don't get too perfectionist." Too late on both counts;).
Official notice that I'm sick of school. I'm only three weeks into the semester, and I'm already falling behind in every class (or it seems that way). Sometimes the one thing that keeps me from dropping out is knowing that I don't want to end up working night shift at Wal-Mart for the rest of my life. And that I'd have to convince my mom that it's a good idea.
To make matters worse, I have zero desire to actually do the work I need to. I tell myself that I'll work on homework all afternoon/evening, and I keep getting distracted. Life has a lot of distractions, I don't think I need to name them all. Anybody who knows me can guess at a few, and probably any guesses would be correct. Tomorrow's another crunch day... lots of classes, lots of stuff to do, lots of assignments to pretend to work on. GRRR.
