Lots to talk about... again

Again, a lot of time has passed with no update, which means that I must more or less summarize recent events.


Joe - Things are going a bit better with Joe. We have been going to counciling, though a lot of the times I feel like we are in a better state before we go in because we are forced to talk things through as well as explain things to the therapist that the two of use have put behind us. This causes us to have little fights which I think are unnessicary. Things we did recently include going to the Altimont Fair, going out to Water Works multiple times (one time Joe got really drunk and I had to take him home), and other less intersting things. I guess things are coming along a bit with him but I still have the feeling that I am too young to be in a relationship like this, which might eventually win out.

RPI - I have recently moved back into my dorm room though without the majority of the stuff. This is the result of multiple things one of which is that I hate moving and I don't want to do it anymore. The main reason though is that if I don't bring stuff in to distract me, I'll be able to focus more on school which will make it go by faster and therefore me able to leave to got to NYC sooner. I think that's where I want to end up in the short term (after school). I have registered for all classes except french and Operating Systems, which I have been approved for but need the professors to sign the piece of paper. Classes start on Monday and as long as I continuously do well in them, I think I'll enjoy them, though Chem could be a killer (again, and again, and again... and this time it would be again).

Work - I now work for ActiveHost very part time, the RPI Union (as a sysadmin) part time, and CarXPC part time. I have been neglecting CarXPC a bit and need to get back on that. I think its mostly cause I've grown tired of waiting to hear about funding and everytime I ask Dave if we have a meeting with Verizon yet, he makes some joke, which pisses me off. In terms of the Union though, I recently fixed a lot of their problems including one involving MS Exchange and Active Directory... and on that note, I guess I'll announce that I am now officially a Microsoft Certified Proffessional (I got a new cert.), making my official signature Daniel Delphin, MCP, CCNA. It's nothing to brag about but I'm on my way. I find MS certs to be very very easy, especially when compared to Cisco. I'll have my MCSE soon enough.

Other - I'm currently down in Dobbs Ferry for my final "vacation" before school starts. Tonight, I got to hang out with Ian, who it turns out is even more whipped by his signficant other than I am... something that is hard to imagine. I was supposed to hang out with Jon, but he accidentally schedule a "seduction class" during most of the time I'll be home so I won't see him until tomorrow evening/night. It's ok though and I go back to RPI on Sunday morning/afternoon. On yeah... and I had an 2 hour convo with the GM and PU of my school and got appointed to a safety commitee that reports to the state of NY as to how safe RPI is. Watch out Mark Smith (dean of students)!!!

Anyway, time to ummmm, take a bath I think.
