Classes for Spring 2005

It’s been a little while since I updated. It’s the first day of class at Berkeley. I totally didn’t want to go to class today, but didn’t everybody?

Anyways, I think I may have found the easiest class in Berkeley: Information Systems 146, Foundations of New Media. Get this: part of the class involves reading a comic book (about making comic books), the computer programming portion involves a language taught to grade schoolers, and the last section of the class is about video games. Also cool are the (unlikely) possibilities of testing out a camera phone from Nokia and maybe even having Will Wright (creator of the SimCity games, as well as the Sims) as a guest speaker. And there’s still space if any one wants to join in (TuTh 2-3:30).

I had another class about Resources of the Earth. It sounded cool, but the reading sounds really boring and it sounds like a lot more work than it should be. I’m thinking I might drop this class if it really starts to bug me, but we’ll see.

Overall not a bad day.

You’ve Got to be Kidding Me- Ever heard the song “Jenny” (better known as 867-5309). Well somebody called that number. All of them. From area code 200 to 900, he got a variety of responses.

My favorite:
678: “Wow, you’ve reached this recording because you’re a loser and have no life. You must be one of the many who has dropped out of school and is living on taxpayer money. Please hang up the phone, get a job, and make a contribution to society. Goodbye!”
