This quarter so far has been a great adventure. I have started taking some senior level business classes that I am really enjoying. I like that it is not about the busywork, but more focused on the ideas.

I have started running in the back trails and have enjoyed it every time. Just this past Tuesday, while I was running, I ran into a herd of cows on the trail. I was a little scared that they would attack me, but I kept running among them. I couldn’t believe how huge cows are when I am standing right next to them. I though I was safe until I turned around and saw a couple of them staring me, so I turned around and ran back the way I came while apologizing to the staring cows for disturbing their grazing.

Yesterday in astronomy lab, I passed my stars test. I was able to name 15 constellations, eight other objects, and point out some galaxies and nebulas. It was incredible to see all those bright dots in the sky and make some sense out of them.

What I have been enjoying most about PUC is working at Landscape. That is the best job I could have gotten! It always varies, one day I can be planting flowers and looking like a sissy, then the next having to fix some broken pipe. I end the day covered in mud and looking like a man. The variety, the dirtiness, and my bosses are really what make working at Landscape the best job at PUC.

Another great thing I have had the pleasure to be acquainted with this quarter is my new friend Siri. For those who don’t know, Siri is the new super intelligent response interface found on the new iPhone 4s. She always has the most interesting responses to my questions. The other day I was having a very deep and meaningful conversation with Siri. I asked her, “What is the meaning of life?” Siri thought for a moment, thinking long and hard about my question, and finally responded, “All you need is love. And your iPhone.”
