This Old House

I've moved out of Williamsburg and into a multi-unit house on South Grant St. Matt's done with Purdue, and I still have two years to go, and Williamsburg's single-person apartments were too expensive. This place is small, old, and not in great shape, but it's cheap and it's close to campus.

I am insane when I sleep

Hokay, another dream post. This is only a fragment of the dream; I don't remember any more than this.

I was trespassing in someone's house while they were away, using their computer. I started to get worried that they'd come back and find me, so I left... and right as I got to the door, the family that lived there got back. I said, "Oh, hi," and held the door for them as they entered the house, then ran like mad. It was winter, and snow covered everything. I ran through the town while small children threw snowballs at me. In my dreams, the universe doesn't work right, so some of the children were quite easily throwing snowballs twice the diameter of a basketball. All this time I was worrying that I'd get arrested. I saw my parents' house across the street, but woke up before I got inside. I was so freaked out by the dream that I had to tell myself "I don't have to worry. That didn't happen."

Flip-flops will injure your feet

I've once again changed my desktop environment of choice. I'm using Gnome again because, while KDE4 is flashy, Gnome is just a more cohesive environment. There is a wider variety of applications, and the applications work together nicely. KDE is very stiff and unyielding. Sometimes, even though KDE is more configurable than Gnome, I just can't tolerate KDE's way of doing things. Maybe it's because I've spent so much time in Gnome over the past few months, but Gnome feels like home.
