Today is a new day. A new month. Over the past month I think I have let a number of things get to me in a bad way. I have been very depressed about world affairs. My Ph.D has been going OK I guess. But I’ve been grumpy, and far more terse with people than I normally am. I’ve also been far less laid back. I’ve decided that it’s no good being depressed with the general state of things. It doesn’t solve any problems, it just makes me and the people around me miserable. So while I am still far from happy with the way the world is going these days, I’m not going to let it take control of me, and make me a depressed person. While I’m totally peeved with the way I stuffed up my blog, it might be a good thing that it got wiped clean.

We’ve had a slight misunderstanding with a potential house mate. I had dinner with a guy who introduced himself as my new house mate. I should have said something right then and there, but me, being the easy going person that I am (most of the time) decided just to play along. I incorrectly assumed that Nigel and Riko had already decided that this guy was moving in with us. Apparently not. But neither Riko nor Nigel spoke up when he introduced himself to me. As such, the guy thinks he is moving in tomorrow, when, in fact, none of us want him to move in. It is a very awkward situation. This was a situation where I shouldn’t have been so laid back. I should have said something. I don’t know what is going to happen now. We can’t get a hold of him on the phone, and he thinks he is moving in tomorrow.
