Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

So let's start with the background information. I decided I wanted to restart my computer. I thought I might as well do some windows update right before, because that way I can save myself some restarts. It goes through that and in the process, the computer crashes. There's the irony: the computer crashed while performing an update. This is probably the part that is the direct cause of the end.

I restarted and it crashed once more, after another hour or so. However, this time, it wouldn't sta...

It's done.

It's been fun.

Everything that made me angry or sad about it... doesn't matter right now.

Right now is a mixture of satisfaction and melancholy.

But no dwelling in the past. Appreciate it and move forward.

This year will be exciting. I know it can only get better, but I wonder what will top this?

Freedom of Flag

A town in Nevada bans the flying of foreign flags unless an American flag is shown above it.

And yet we can legally burn American flags?

I'm all for patriotism, but I think this is a little far. I mean, how is it destructive that some foreign flag is displayed as opposed to our banner? It's just helping the people connect with their culture. And anyway, the first amendment protects this sort of symbolic speech. It's not harmin...

Gas Prices and Fuel Efficiency

Most Americans want 40 mpg legislation. Sure it's a noble statement, but hardly realistic at the moment.

Right now, very very few cars are above 40 mpg. I took a quick peek at the Toyota website and only the Camry Hybrid and Prius are above 40. The Prius is well above and the Camry is only just at 40; its highway mpg is actually 38, even. Basically, we'll be stuck driving o...

So I went to UCLA today. Visited the library that the one student got tazered. Yup.

I also visited my cousin's boyfriends house. I'm now watching (taped episodes of) Day Break of which some scenes were filmed in said house.

I'm in Los Angeles right now. It isn't a bad place. I wouldn't mind going here for college.

But first I need to finish that little thing called an application. Specifically, the essay(s).
