Farewell......sort of.......not really



School starts again on Monday. I'm dreading it and hyperventilating and having apocalyptic nightmares. This quarter, I am hoping, will be the worst one. Not that I want it to be, but it gives me hope that the rest will be tolerable. Basically, I suck at math and I have to take graduate statistics, not having had a math class since 1985. It's a little intimidating. What I think is even worse, is that the class I thought would be easier looks like it is going to be really yucky. The professor sent us all an opening letter with an enormous diatribe about what he doesn't like (and not worded in a very friendly manner).

So, I have sworn that I am going to severely limit my blogging. I am thinking I will limit myself to two visits per week. If it turns out that I am freaking out for no reason, I'll see you all more often. If it turns out I am rightfully hyperventilating, then you'll know why I'm not around. Hopefully I will see some of you when I come up for air on the 20th. Oh, and by the way, for those of you who care, Naked Raygun is officially back together and will be playing House of Blues on April 27th. Tickets go on sale on January 10th. And fortunately, it will be after this nasty quarter.

We'll miss you!

Good luck with this quarter. I can't stand pompous, hostile professsors who seem to regard the process of education as some type of egghead hazing.

Your references to graduate school have made me feel much better about postponing my return for at least a year. So thank you for that.

Good luck and I hope it manages to go a lot better than you're expecting. Happy thoughts.

Thanks, guys. Last day of freedom. Even Bink cried last night. He knows what it means when school starts for me. I have sworn that I am going to spend what little free time I have with my family. I've got to set some priorities. As much as I love to play and will need the occasional mindless diversion, I want to focus a bit more on them whenever I can. I'll get another break mid-March, which really is not that far away.

I've been vowing to curtail my blogging since the beginning of the school year, without much luck. Sounds like you've got lots more going on than I do though. Good luck and I hope it's not that awful!

even Bink cried? Bink cries all the time. If Bink stopped crying I would be worried.

Once you're in it, it will go by quickly.

I knew you in '85 and would bet that you're more focused these days. No Club 69 distraction, for one.

That's so cool that Naked Raygun got back together to help you celebrate the end of the quarter!

Who is this "Naked Raygun" you speak of?

I prefer my Raygun fully clothed.

Good luck.
