Feeling Like Fall

It has finally started to cool down, after a very uncharacteristic and more than slightly annoying heat wave. Stupid solar flares. Screw global warming. It's funny to see all the Southern California freshman complain about the cold weather. I remember complaining about it too my first year. But, for some crazy reason, I've come to appreciate it and even look forward to it in the last two years. Cold weather is fun! It's almost like having a real autumn - you know with leaves turning colors and stuff.

Rohit Reviews the "Revolution"

I watched Matrix Revolutions last night, going in with low expectations and leaving with a vague sense of disappointment. Obviously, it's not a good movie. The hype exceeded the directors' ability to deliver any conclusive answer that would satiate the countless people who had been theorizing since the announcement of Reloaded. But the question remains as to why the movie was bad. I do not think that it was bad in and of itself. Rather, the movie was a disappointment of what it did not do rather than what it did, as clichéd as it may sound.

Keepin' it in Perspective

I heard something tonight while going to waste swipes that really helped me gain a renewed sense of perspective on life, which has perhaps been lacking in the last few weeks. I was at the Den and while waiting in line, the guy at the counter was having a conversation with a woman directly in front of me. Apparently they knew one another because the conversation went beyond "Thanks" and "You're welcome." The woman asked the man, "How was your day today?" and the man responded with "Hey, everyday that I wake up is a good day! If I don't wake up ... well that would be a bad day."

Re-acquainted With The Antiquated

I bought a CD today. Yeah, that's Compact Disc. Ok, so that's not all I did. I also saw Cal kick Stanfurd's ass 28-16. In fact, today's been a great day - won at football, drank a new holiday peppermint frappuchino from Starbucks, ate at In & Out, watched Ocean's Eleven for the first time, and of course, randomly spent about $80 at Best Buy. Who could ask for anything more?

Who Needs Enemies?

Y'all know that age old adage about who needs enemies when you got friends like these? Well, yeah—seems I have come across that situation much to my lament. And let me guarantee you, this is going to be a real rant. Not whining about how I whine so much. Anger. I am actually more angry about this situation than I care to admit.

Of Psychos and Stalkers

I'm thinking of buying a gun. No, I haven't become a gun nut yet, but given my recent and altogether unacceptable experience with psychos and weirdos, I think buying a gun might be a good idea. At least then, I could wave it around and pretend to be threatening with my 6'2'', 140 lbs frame. Let me explain.

Monetary Contentment

Hell must have frozen over, because I seriously can't think of anything major that I want to buy. As I had said earlier, I went on a mad spending spree to end all sprees this summer and into the fall. However, since then, I have managed to keep my spending in check, only whipping out the credit card for two Mac-related purchases: an iPod case so my iPod would not get scratched up and a Waterfield laptop sleeve for my Powerbook for the same purpose. Minimal purchases, if you ask me. And nefariously useful too. What the hell is up with that? I want to buy something I don't need. A complete waste of money. Like another computer. Or another camera. Or better yet, both. Yeah! That's what I'm talking about.
