"Hi - bye" Maneuver - Episode I

You know when you bump into someone you haven't seen for a while, so you're like "OMG HI!", and then you realise you're rediculously late for something, so just before the other party has a chance to respond, you suddenly say "OH CRAP GTG BYE!" and run away?

This is somewhat similar. Hit-and-run blogging.

Thing is...I'm flying home to my parents' house for a week tomorrow...and will sever all internet access until 01 September so I can properly relax.

Relax before my two hellish semesters of 6 courses each, that is. On top of research work. Despite my abysmal study habits. Despite warnings from several profs against such acts of madness. I know I'm doing something incredibly intelligent, thank you! Might as well die gloriously or something.

This brings to mind a quote from Salinger's Catcher in the Rye: "The mark of an immature man is to die nobly for a cause; the mark of a mature man is to live humbly for one." (paraphrased edition, by the way) Instead of humbly accepting that I'm behind and submitting my pride to the Five Year Program, I'll just kill myself with 6 courses. Yup. Expect rants on the subject matter later. Or diatribes, rather. I'm no longer a teenager:

I don't rant.

Instead, I 'unleash diatribes', ie. sesquipedalian ranting intensified by academic references. Citing Nature or The Congolese Journal of New Age Psychology (note: the latter is not a real journal) always makes one's ranting sound quite sophisticated and well-founded. Especially when it's not.

Anyway, I digress. I write in gradients sometimes, never knowing how the hell I jump between rather unrelated topics. Vectors do that, sometimes. I haven't touched calculus in ages...even though I actually enjoy math when I sorta understand it.

The Better Blogs list should keep the potential imaginary reader occupied in my absense, which should be followed by a real début.
