the weather is kind of sunny, which is nice, and I am happy with my new beautiful laptop, featuring windows vista. I don't know what the deal with this system is. For all the bad I have heard about it, it seems to work just fine, easily understandable for a longtime xp user. I'm no idiot with computers, but for all that I want to like Linux, when you sit down with it it is unbelievably frustrating. It is not ready for us casual users, I would venture to say.

The seem to be fairly quiet in this little cafe, as is usually the case on any afternoon, even during the school year.
As for me, I remain undirected, but is that so bad a thing? I guess there could be worse. Aside from karate, I have no real direction.
Perhaps this Whitman poem partially applies to me:
Beginning my studies
Beginning my studies, the first step pleas'd me so much,
The mere fact, consciousness-these forms-the power of motion,
The least insect or animal-the senses-eyesight-love;
The first step, I say, awed me and pleased me so much,
I have hardly gone, and hardly wished to go, and farther,
But stop and loiter all the time, to sing it in ecstatic songs.
