Seeing the Formula 1 live at Silverstone was pretty awesome.

The way I feel today, and the fact I'm at work, is not so awesome - but I'm still on a plus overall!

And, my leasing office let me out of my lease early, since they found a tenant! That's basically $1000 straight into my pocket.

I have a student bill of less than $2000!!! I freaking LOVE scholarships. And the fact that I'm only taking 12 credits (I graduate in December)

This means that I can survive quite easily until December without working for the rest of the summer or during the school year based on what I have already. Now, I will be working for another 4 weeks and I'll probably be working about 13-15 hours during the week at school because I really enjoy my job there and it will pay for general living expenses. I've also got $2000 my parents are giving me as that's what they got back on their taxes for claiming me as a dependent even though I'm supporting myself (except for health and car insurance). And I've got $4000 in a trust left to me by my Grandma that I plan as using as an emergency fund. Yay!!

The fact that I'm going to be graduating from my undergrad with less than $5000 in loans is staggering to me.

I'm really, really lucky.

How is the situation in France actually? I've always assumed it was just the US that had these ridiculous high tuitions, but apparently so do Britain and Canada. Not even remotely as high as the US but significantly larger than Belgium (€580 next year).

I'm paying over 5 times as much as someone born in the UK to go here. It's still cheaper than a comparable uni in the US.

If you're good, you can get free public education. Otherwise there are private establishments, prices vary considerably but are around 1000-5000€/y. The state pays a large part of their costs.

Schools concerned with economy and management do have ridiculous fees. Also the students there are all assholes.

Additionally, the national and regional institutions may grant scholarships (I got two of them, 1000€ for both).

X has outlined a video schedule for his channel.
That's right. X, of X's Adventures in Minecraft... is returning to Minecraft.
He's also finishing Half-Life 2, and, eventually, more Skyrim.

This is astounding. I think the only thing that could get me more excited is if Half-Life 2: Episode 3 was announced.

This probably belongs in the SO MOTHEREFFIN' HAPPY thread, but that thread's dead. Regardless, I am SO MOTHEREFFIN' HAPPY, because I get to watch X begin to finish Half-Life 2 tomorrow, and start a new Minecraft world Wednesday.

The man-crush levels are dangerously high.

The new series from Geek & Sundry is super-awesome. Written by a Kid. A kid tells a story, and then they animate/act it out. Episode 1 features Dave Foley, Joss Whedon & Kate Micucci.

Many things are awesome:
My friend who has cancer is going to be ok. They got it all in the operation, after some radiotherapy her survival is almost100%.
cooking ahead is awesome, I made 2 dinners yesterday now all I have to do is nuke it for 2 minutes and done.
Babies are awesome. I am watching my one year old pull herself up on the furniture and slide along the floor on her socks, it is like she is ice skating. So cute. Even when she is snotty she will beam a smile and put out her arms for a cuddle. Not looking forward to when she is a teenager!

Pedipalp is a great word. (It's the appendage near spiders' mouths that look like smaller legs.) Pedipalps! And it makes sense, since pedi- means foot. Apparently palpus means palm or insect feeler.

yeah, I think we were all expecting Matt admits Smith (bloody auto correct) to appear. Let's face it, if the Queen is up for a comedy acting role then he should have been.
[edit] there were the girls in the weird black and white pepper pot dresses. I had a facebook debate whether they were supposed to be Daleks. Damned if I know what else they were supposed to be!

I can't help thinking, of the 1 billion people who watched the ceremony last night there were probably 30 million in the uk thinking it was great, and 970 million outside the uk thinking 'what the fuck is all this, I knew the Brits were crazy'.

Am I wrong?

Trying out the whole dating thing for the first time (only previous experience is transitionning from friends to more). Second date, cuddles and make-outs were had. Pretty awesome.

I am probably moving in with an awesome friend in the fall, in the building where my best friend, and the girl I am dating, happen to live. Could be a little awkward, but very awesome.

Previous experiences tell me that my life cannot possibly contain that much awesome all at once. Something will inevitably fuck up.

As for Dr. Who appearance, bear in mind we still have a closing ceremony to go through too. My wife complained about the lack of Take That and Adele.....

It was definitely a very British affair but I think that's pretty good. Do what we do best; quirky and strange.

After watching it all, I'm a little sad that I've only got a few more days to watch it before I jet off and miss the rest of it. There's only so much my Sky+ can record..

Aww hell yes. I'm being sent a cheque for £277 from my water company. I had a water meter installed a couple of weeks ago, and I had paid for a year's worth of water on the unmetered rate back in May. This is a pro-rata refund for that. Definitely helpful, since I'm going to an anime convention next week, and could definitely use the money to buy useless crap from the dealer's room.

Edit: also, there have been some epic thunderstorms rumbling around Bristol this afternoon. It's good to be indoors. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I was getting the 'where's Adele?' complaints from my wife and sister (different people, same room, shared complaint - I know I'm Cornish but don't jump to conclusions).

You're right, we've got a week to wait before we find out how weird we can make the closing ceremony. We should start a sweepstake. I'm voting for an attack of Daleks and cybermen being defeated by a crack SAS squad formed from Wellington, Raleigh, Nelson, Churchil, Henry V (parts 1-5), Bear Grylls, Ray Mears, David Attenborough, John Humphries, Humphrey Littleton, Nicholas Parsons, Wallace and Grommit. All set to a sound track composed by Chaz and Dave and performed by the Worzles. Ticket price for the closing ceremony currently stands at £1500 per ticket, but for a show like that I'd pay extra!

It's no longer blocked for me either, but I think the only time I'll ever go there at work is if there's something vitally important I need to ugently update for an event.

Really awesome is that gmail and google docs are no longer blocked for me, which is fantastic.
