oh man, last friday nathan and i started having the longest conversation about special relativity. we kept going in circles trying to figure out if distances from the reference of the astronaut shrink… if the velocities change, etc. in the end we decided that it’d help if we had someone who was really good in physics with us.

now i have to confess something. back in university, I did take a class on relativity but dropped the class in favour of a bio class. i dropped the physics class because i didn’t like the professor and thought I wouldn’t get an A in the class. my plan worked. i got an A, well an A- in bio but now I regret dropping the physics class. besides i’m interested in particle physics… what the hell would i need special relativity for?

so last friday i ordered my first book on particle physics. it arrived yesterday, brand spanking new, just the way i liked my books. i opened the book to the intro and right there in front of my eyes it says, “elementary particle physics naturally falls under the dominion of quantum field theory.” and as i found out a few paragraphs later, quantum field theory just happens to be a union of relativity and quantum mechanics. shiet.

as you can see i’m no expert in physics. far from it and i have my work cut out for me. i think i’ll just see how far i get reading the book i got and if i don’t get very far, i’ll take it as a sign to just start from scratch. i’ll brush up on Newtonian physics, electromagnetism and QM for the heck of it, then SR and back to particle physics.

Piano Trio in Eb major op.100

My favourite Schubert piece. I’ve been listening to this repeatedly, probably due to the fact that I’m in such a good mood. I just came out to Josh and Mike this week and I was surprised they both took it great… actually I was sort of disappointed with Mike’s reaction (but more on that later).

You’d think that coming out at 25 isn’t such a big deal anymore but for some reason, I had a little trouble saying the G word, “Gooda.” No sorry, I meant gay. It’s like everytime I say it, I sort of cringe… it’s as if gay is the equivalent of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.. (you know.. Lord Voldemort) ::cringes::

Hmmm… “Lord Voldemort.”

::cringes::

Bah, I can’t say his name. Where’s Harry Potter when you need him.

It’s been a while since I came out to somebody and I was getting rusty. I told Josh a couple days ago while we were playing WoW. He was bugging me all day about him finding a gf for me (don’t ask) and I just had to tell him that gf’s aren’t really my thing. Ok I didn’t exactly tell him. It went more along the lines of..

“hey josh, so about that gf thing. just don’t do it”

“why not?”

“Guess.”

“oohhhh”

For some reason after that I just knew he was cool with it. In a way I was also shocked that he was cool with it because I knew he’s a creationist and when the word creationist pops up I immediately think “religious fanatic.” I honestly expected bible verses to come out of his mouth. I’m so stupid. Someone slap me and not in that S&M sort of way.

I came out to Mike today while we were headed back to the office after picking up one of the servers from the colo. I sort of owed it to him since I’ve been working with him for more than a year now. What can I say? I was disappointed with his reaction.

“hey Mike, I.. uhhh.. happen to like guys”

“yeah I know.”

“…”

It was like me proving the Riemann hypothesis only to find out that everyone else figured it out already. I was dumbfounded. I planned to give this big speech after telling him I liked guys and instead I just gave him a big “WHHAA?!” It turns out he read my blog a year ago and figured it out from there. The bitch knew and he stole my thunder!! -.-

I’m lucky to be surrounded by such great people. Such a relief too since these are people I work with everyday. I can sort of relax a little bit now.. I don’t have to watch my pronouns.. and just be more open. ::exhales::

Who needs a bf when you have such great friends. (I’ll probably regret saying that… lol)

Oh yeah before I forget… Josh is having a show on Nov. 15 at Cuppy’s so make sure you check it out!

Just Finished the 7th Harry Potter Book

I just finished the 7th Harry Potter book around 30 mins ago. That is all.

Jan 25

I’ve been kidding around all afternoon that I now need a walking stick and some depends. Ugh 25! I think the one reason why I’m a little bitter is the fact that I’m still single. When will be the day I get to go home hug the man of my dreams and hear him say “i love you”.

OK ewww. I nearly puked typing that. I guess I’m not the romantic type. LoL. Or maybe I am, who knows. All I know is that my love is wasted away as each year passes away. ::pukes::

Sorry I tried. Anyway I spent most of today worrying about bugs in the current project we’ve been working on. The damn things just keep on creeping up! Talk about stress! After work, the family and I headed of the Houston’s for some dinner. mmmm ahi tuna. I’m gonna throw a little dinner thing on Saturday. Not quite sure where but Hamburger Mary’s keeps popping up in my mind. I’ve never been there so I’m not sure if it’s a good place to eat or just to party at. Any suggestions?

I’ve been reading The Year of Ice again. I love that book. It’s just so cute reading about how Kevin goes to his bedroom and imagines his pillows as his big crush, Jon. Too cute really! But it’s not all cuteness, there’s a lot of serious to the story.. the death of his mother, his sort of dysfunctional relationship with his dad. I sort of really feel for kevin… somehow he just doesn’t have it that good.

What else has been going on in my life? Oh yes, my bro and I are finally moving to a 2 bedroom apartment! We’ve been in this apartment for 5 years now, and actually live in this street for 7 years. It’s sickening. Oh yeah did I forget to mention that we’re currently in a 1 bedroom? Talk about a lack of privacy. I remember back in the Philippines where I got my own room and keep the door locked and pretty kept the door locked. You gotta wonder what the heck I did in there! 😉 Anyway I’m totally excited about the new place. Not just cause it’s a two bedroom but because it’s in a totally different place. So long Jamboree!
