Hello again everybody, and welcome to another exciting edition of the Trev Report! Where you get to find out all that interesting stuff about your favorite buddy, Trevor Menagh! Now, on to the report!
Signe is doing well. She is currently up in Washington with her family, relaxing and having a jolly good time. We are still going strong through the thick and the thin of it all. :) We are both looking at graduating in May and after that, well I am not ready to say just yet, but we will see. :p~
Trev's Winter Vacation
Well, I am home in good old Van Nuys, CA with the fam for break. I am returning to school on the 13th of January. It has been a fun break we had Christmas here at Deb's place, where I am staying, and the annual Braindead Club New Years' Party was at Bjennings' apartment, as it was the last time I was there. Everyone asked about Signe and why she wasn't there. :)
Let's see, besides that I haven't been doing too much around here. Signe gave me the idea to make my own graduation announcements so I have been working on that, playing some old video games, surfing, e-mailing potential companies for employment, etc. I nice mix of productivity and relaxation.
Oh, I saw Brian Papp while I was down here, he was on 2 week X-mas break from Advanced Army training, we went anime shopping and just hung out for a day, it was really good seeing him again. Brian is a real close friend to me.
Trev's Christmas goodies and Computer Bounty
Well, I made out well this X-mas. I got a beautiful picture of my girlfriend (my favorite gift!) and a lot of interesting books to read, and maps of places I might go. :)
I also got (and aquired) some computer goodies. The 'rents got me a DVD-ROM (which is totally moddable!) and a new mouse (a Kensington trackball, I've wanted one of these for years). Then I indulged on a new video card (an Asus AGP-V7100, a 32Mb GeForce2 MX card) and a Duron 800MHz processor to replace my 600MHz I currently have. (djamn! Do you know that the 850s are already out, good grief!) So it looks like I will beplaying around with my 'puter when I return. Signe bought me a video game (American McGee's Alice) and I really like it.
Well I passed all of my classes last semester and still maintained an over 3.0 status! It was a real tough semester for me, as serious senioritis set in and all. Well next semester (and graduation) is shaping up well, all my classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the first of which is in Moscow, my compilers class. I am also taking second semester operating systems where we are actually creating an operating system from scratch! My other two classes are computers and society and culture in politics after WWII in America, they both sound like fun classes. I never thought the day would come when I would say this, but I am really looking forward to graduating! Six years is about enough for me right now. :)
Trev's Job Hunt
The job hunt is going well, I have pretty much decided that I want to move to the Silicon Valley and work at a company working on Internationalization issues with Palm products. I have one solid offer so far, and around the end of the month I will be flying down to the Bay area to interview with Palm and Handspring for positions. As I said before, my deadline to decide where to work is around the Ides of March, right before Spring Break.
I was talking with Mike Chu and when I get down to the Valley. I think I am going to start up Iaido/Battodo training with him out at Moffit Field, I also want Signe and I to get into Tai Chi Chuan together, I think that would be healthy and fun. :)
I haven't watched ANY anime since I have went on vacation, but I have talked about it some with friends at the New Years' Party and with Brian. Yes, it is true anime ISN'T my entire life. (anymore.)
I think I am going to start working on a modern history of anime culture in America, it is so interesting and I think that there is enough to write on so. :)
Lee, I am honestly going to go through all of LoGH next semester!
Well, that's about it for this edition of the Trev Report. I will try to update the webpage one of these days, but we will see. Thanks for reading, and I will see you all next month!
