Getting really annoyed at UPS. They lost a textbook I ordered (replacement on it's way) and now they've lost a power supply I ordered. Or at least I think so, it has been saying "On Its Way to UPS" for three days. I doubt Newegg would take that long to actually ship it.

@zorinlynx I have one from Ikea, my desk is a bit too high, and it puts the keyboard at the right height. Plus I like that the keyboard can be pushed out of the way. Wish they still made them. I'll hold on to mine till it falls apart.

Blah, getting back to doing schoolwork after having not done any in a month and an half is hard. I'm working on finishing up work for a class I took an incomplete last semester, my Cisco Security class. Want to get it done before fall semester. Excuse me as my eye glaze over.

By the way, I couldn't get any sleep last night, as my mind kept pulling up dreams (nightmares?) of the learning to code earlier in the day. Help, I'm coding in my dreams. Do not want!

Been learning python at @rachel insistence. I think I'm understanding it, got small 3 line programs to run, but still not sure how it will be useful. Will make the Intro to Programming course a little easier this fall.

Why do I keep having nightmares of moving in with my parents when I haven't lived with either in 25 years?
