There's a Secular Student Alliance being formed on my campus! I've been to a few meetings now, and I've gotta say, it's nice to hang out with a group of people for whom I don't have to bite my tongue on the topic of religion.

Please tell me they're all awesome, down-to-earth people and not just a bunch of sexist, smug douchecanoes who speak in memes like almost every club I've tried to join so that I may live vicariously through you...

Well, about half the membership is women who are studying astrophysics or getting their masters in biology. There's a pretty strong feminist presence, in other words. We're still pretty small - about 15 people total. So far, most of our meetings have focused on how to get more members, the way we should try to steer our club, and the activism we'll do.

Currently, it's street-preacher season here on campus. Trying to get to the library to study means walking through a gauntlet of religious hate-speech. We're going to very passive aggressively protest them by hanging out near them with our sign-up sheets. We'll have a sign saying "Sign up for the Secular Student Alliance here", and we won't be yelling at anyone. Good advertising, no?

We're focusing on community building so far, and I've been very vocal about making certain that we don't get involved in trolling any religious groups (as I keep reminding them - trolling them means they can troll us back, or worse, get the club banned from campus). Some of our members are itching to get involved in activism, but we really need to get established legally as a campus club before we can do anything.

I made chocolate raspberry cheesecake the other night and it turned out GREAT. It's the first cheesecake I've managed to not over bake (why must something so good be such a pain in the ass to cook?)

Not much on my end, things are going smoothly at school, I might get an intern ship that cold count as class credit, got a bit of an essay done. Also, got a little work done on a fangame engine that I used to be working on, still rusty though.

Good to see everyone's doing alright. The bad news thread makes me go every time I see it on the top.

Despite some roadblocks along the way, I've found roommates for next year and we found an affordable apartment with three bedrooms, one and a half baths, a view of the river, a gym downstairs, and ample closet space.

Here's hoping we get approved!

Here's hoping your campus admins aren't as dumbfucked as mine are. I swear to they get the most incompetent people for this shit sometimes.

Haven't smoked a cigarette in a week. For the first time since I was fourteen.

Feels good man.

So, one week later.. if you don't mind me asking, did you keep it up?

I think I've done entirely without computer games for about 5 weeks now. I might end up having a life.

Heh. Yeah, I've kinda been hopping around a bit for the last 4 and a half years. My "home station" is now Moody AFB in Georgia, but I'm on a deployment to Afghanistan right now. Not much has changed since the last time I was here. Once I get back, I'll have one year of active duty left on my contract, and I'll hopefully not have to move for the remaining duration. Then I'm getting the hell out and going to college. Maybe it'll stick this time.

Find yourself a "military friendly school"--GI Jobs Magazine has a list of schools that have structures in place to ensure the success of military students as a population with different needs and experiences than the usual undergrad and grad student population. Not all schools have a good reputation for it, but our school does (and so does much of our system).

I broke twice, and I was very drunk both times. Not sure if that counts.

Just got back from my oldest and dearest friend's wedding--quite possibly the nerdiest wedding I've ever been to. While I had a blast officiating (thank you, Universal Life Church) and writing the nerd-centric script, I can also say it was a beautiful ceremony that had its really moving moments nestled in the moments of sheer hilarity. We actually had to pause for laughter more than once.

But after a rather painful day of flying, I'm also quite happy to be back.

Gorgeous bank holiday weekend weather for three straight days. I've walked the legs off the dog. Smile

First day of work was exhausting. But it felt good.
Now for an 8-hour shift tomorrow!

Got an internship and will be starting next week. Will be interesting for sure; archiving stuff into a museum's comp database fyi. Other than that, school is done and I can relax for a small while.
