We went to the Green Belt portion off of Loop 360, and it was my first experience climbing a real rock outside. The rope is very comforting though and I'm proud that I managed a 5-7 (steepest grade, but easiest climb route). Don't worry if you're not a muscle man (or woman), it's mostly in your feet and your balance anyway.
Today was the first day of classes at UT and I only spent like 2 hours in a classroom. My CS TA didn't show up for discussion! I woke my ass up at 9AM for nothing! But anyway, Philosophy 313K sounds interesting so far. I was glad that he gears the class towards the use of logic and proofs in computing. I can't wait until we get to recursion so that I can understand recursion notation better so I can hopefully steer farther away from those bloody infinite loops. I'll probably be talking about that class a lot because it looks interesting and I've heard it's very hard.
My Latin teacher seems good, but damn am I going to miss Doug :( Don't neglect your nonmajor classes, because Latin was my favorite class last semester. Douglas Boin was like the coolest teacher and having that small class was so conducive to the material. Maybe I'll get him for LAT 311 next semester, who knows. I didn't go to math class (M 340L) yet or CS 315, but I already have a CS puzzler to do!
Doesn't look too hard though, maybe I'll post some thoughts on it tomorrow after I've taken a closer look at it.
I can't help but laugh at Sega right now because EA has officially pwned them. They bought an exclusive contract with ESPN and had recently signed a deal with the NFL as well. I do feel a little sorry for Sega, but I love the Madden series and it's not like it was underhanded.
My laughing is abated, however, by my failure to secure a spot in GUI 201 :( Apparantly it's all full, so if I can't get in next week I'll have to wait until the fall. Oh well, at least I get to sign a lease for my apartment in Far West for next year tonight! If anyone needs an apartment finder, talk to Alex Larsen over at Key Properties. He's very cool and extremely helpful. Plus, it's free to you!
