An Update, at Long Last


Hi, everyone! Sorry it’s been a while long while very long while whole eternity and a half since last post. Here’s a bit of an update on things:

In case you aren’t aware, I’m currently a junior in college. It was my goal from the start to major in computer science, but through a series of events I find unnecessary to explain here, I was unable to take any computer science courses my freshman year, and subsequently, last July, I found myself without a college to attend.

Since then I was accepted to Texas State University, where I decided to study. That’s mostly what this post is about.

I am in the middle of my third semester here at Texas State; I am majoring in computer science with a minor in writing. That kind of good news is the stuff one could end a post with. Speaking of which, see ya later!

Nah, just kidding. 😛

The school mascot is the bobcat. There’s a big statue of one in a high-traffic area of the campus, to make sure that no one forgets, I suppose.

Although we have a football team and a big fancy stadium (which was right across the street from my apartment as it happened), I did not make it to a game during the fall semester last year.

Anyway, although my place was technically “on-campus”, I’m still about a mile away from the important stuff like my classes, the dining hall, etc., so I ride a shuttle bus to campus. On weekends or evenings I’ve sometimes walked instead.

I’ve enjoyed Texas State so far. I think I adjusted decently to living away from home, but I always enjoy being back home.

As a final note, all Dr. Garlic/adventure-related posts will be located at the Adventure blog as of now! In fact, a brand-new post is already waiting for you there! Why not check it out and let me know what you think?

The site theme for the Adventure blog is still a little rough around the edges, but I figured I’d rather have the new Dr. Garlic post out now and do the site polishing later. Old links to the posts on my blog will soon redirect there.

Thanks for reading. If you’ve got any questions or just want to say something, well, that’s why I’ve got a comment section!
