Looking for Toto...

It seems somehow fitting that I would be watching the original Terminator, starring Gov. Schwarzenegger himself, my first week here in California. But, here I am.

And things don't seem altogether too different from Kansas when I'm sipping coffee at my desk, browsing OSNews, and half-paying attention to nostalgia on television. Take away some snow, add a home pool and equate Safeway with Dillons and I'm right at home.

I've finished 4 days of my 7 month internship at Intel in their Design Validation department. So far, working full-time in a tech position minus class and homework is everything I thought it could be: I'm intellectually challenged at work, then I go home and do... whatever I want (wohoo!)... I've even had the chance to catch up on where I left off last semester in Card's The Worthing Saga when I'm not listening to the shrieks of my roommates jumping in our 60-degree pool.

It's safe to say that things are dangerously close to perfection; if I could have my fiance back here with me, things just might be...

Well, I'm going to go do something constructive, so I'll close here, for now: Hasta la Vista, Baby ;)

Hey Thia! Hope all is well in Cali! You're probably very busy, thus no posts...or you've become like me and never remember to update anything. Well I have to run 'cause I'm working but just wanted to say hi!
