That's right it's time for another Trev Report. Reporting on Trevor and what's
going on around him.

Trev's Job


Well as you all know I am working in the Palm Computing Division of U.S.
Robotics. Starting tomarrow it will be the Palm Computing Division of 3COM. I
am located in Mountain View, CA. As of late I have been making a font converter
to change Mac Bitmaps to Windows .FON files. The task is rather time consuming,
to my surprise. I have no idea what I will be doing after this, but I am
betting that I will be making little tools for internal use mostly, which is
fine by me. My co-workers are friendly, but I mostly keep to myself. I am
working on a Macintosh Quadra 650. It is about 4 years old, but ever since I
put System 7.6.1 on it I love it. I would even go as far as saying that the Mac
is a better computer than the Windows box. I love it, it is great. If I save
enough money this summer I want to buy a 6400/180 (I found them for around $1250
here). The PalmPilot is a great device. It is the smallest and best selling
device on the PDA/HPC market.

Trev's Anime


Or that is to say: Trev's Addiction. I seem less inclined to do anime related
things in this environment. It's odd, even though I have a cube full of
posters, a computer full of pictures, and Japan Town is less than two hours away
it just isn't the same without people to enjoy it with. True I do still get
excited when I see Ranma 1/2 #1-38 in a bookstore waiting to be bought and I
still rock out to the Ah My Goddess Singles CD, it just can't be the same
without the people. Half the enjoyment of Anime is having people to watch it
with. I am still going to buy certain animes for the club while I am down here
(i.e. Saber Marrionate J, Vision of Escaflowne, etc), but I don't know. I still
love it when I am watching it, but the atomsphere isn't here. Don't worry, I'm
still an otaku. I'm just in remission, this real world thing is bringing me
down.

Trev's Lovelife


How many year's have I been putting the same thing in this spot. It seems that
I will never find my rightful mate. Oh well, I can deal with it. I have so
far. It's seems a fitting fate.

Trev's Family


I haven't seen my Dad in 6 months, so I am going down to the Valley for Father's
Day weekend. The Family is excited to see me again. My dad and I are on good
terms and it seems that absence DOES make the heart grow fonder, at least when
family is concerned.

Trev's Grades


I got:

Mobile Computing B
Microeconomics B
Gen Ed 110 A
Intro to E. Asia B+ (I thought I had an A, guess I botched the final)
Diff. Screw. D (D is for diploma)
TOSP S

So it was a mediocre semester. My GPA raised from 2.80 to 2.82, not much I know
but it's something. Alas, I shall forever ba a B- Student.

Trev's Apartment


The place is like a Hotel. Serious, it's called Oakwood Corporate Housing and I
am sharing a room with a guy from Finance. On the homefront, Brian is checking
out apartments for us to live in next year. Just think, two otaku living in one
apartment. Well to only thing is that everyone is leaving. There will be a
quiet place to study and relax. As long as we don't obsess with Anime too much
(by too much I mean so much that I bypass my studies) I think it will be great!

Trev's Friends


Well, all my buddies from college are disappearing. I have to admit it's kind
of annoying, but what can you do? I guess there is only one constant and that
is life. It's odd, as long as I can remember, my closest of friends always
leave while I stay and continue. I suppose it is just my fate, but that's
enough of my whining.

Trevs' Bass Guitar


Much to my surprise, I am getting better. Practice really does make perfect.
Not to say I am perfect, far from, but I do practice every night and every
morning. I have gotten to the section in my book that says, "Play with a
drummer." i went, "DOH!" Since I don't have a drummer I am just skipping that
part of the book...that 1/3rd of the book...

Trev's Geekdom


I am ever becoming a bigger geek everyday. I am not only an otaku, I am now a
dwarfer (I love Red Dwarf). My job consists of sitting in front of a computer
for 10 hours everyday...and I come in on weekends. It's fun though.

Well I have work to do. I will talk to all of you later.

Regards,
Trev
