Currently playing: Pet Shop Boys - A Different Point of View
Today's observations...

  1. Westwood is pretty much the same, but what happened to Tower Records? It's now Pugz? WTF is that? And we have an Office Depot now, which is cool... but, it's a tiny Office Depot!
  2. UCLA is mostly the same. Not a bad thing, mind you... but the core of my old group of friends to hang out with has graduated, so that'll be a little weird. Plenty of friends still around, but the guys (and girls) who I could call up anytime, anywhere on campus and go hang out, even if only for 2 minutes between clases... that old group is gone. So sad. =( (but they all graduated, so they left for a good reason! =) )
  3. Where'd the nice weather go? It had been degrading over the last few days, but today on campus was very cool for a Los Angeles summer day!
  4. Verizon. Service isn't as god-like as Barry likes to think, but it's a hell of alot better than Cingular, Sprint, or AT&T. (makes me wish for Europe again. That was kick*ss first-class service everywhere I went. Makes the US cell providers feel like small backwater cesspools...)
  5. Verizon prices. Got a really, really good deal yesterday in Monterey Park. (thanks Barry and Nicole for the haggling) Today on campus, I opened the Daily Bruin... a shop 5 minutes from my apartment is doing v60i's for free. Crap.
  6. Motorola v60c. I don't know what's so great about this phone. It's a little smaller than my old T28World, but not appreciably so. User interface isn't as good as Ericsson or Nokia; partially is because of the additional features, additional complexity is need. It's still retarded, though..
  7. Cingular. Turns out they have a policy to lure existing customers back. I've got a 30-day credit on my account now. I can switch back to Cingular anytime within 30 days and they'll pay my Verizon early termination fee. Great policy! (now if Cingular's signal was only a tiny little bit better in my apartment. Unfortunately, it ISN'T! *sigh*)
  8. Books. Ouch. That was expensive.

Blah. Things are actually going pretty good, they're just a little boring right now. I'm sure it'll pick up once I learn everyone else's schedules and stuff, so we can start hanging out...
