Some stuff twitter and facebook know already [Aug. 4th, 2008|08:10 am]

Love my new apartment. It is totally freaking awesome.

I live walking distance from the steve allen theatre, sunset junction, parts of los feliz. The other day I walked over to sunset and vine (though that was a bit of a walk).

My new apartment is nicer, in a better area, and costs less.

My brother is coming to visit soon. We are going camping in Joshua Tree, I think. Crazy, I know.

FOUR DAYS UNTIL THE ONE YEAR MARK. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Saw Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Eliza Dushku, Felicia Day, Neil Patrick Harris, and many more at comic con.

Went to a show featuring Jeneane Garafalo and Scott Thompson at the Steve Allen Theatre on Saturday night.

Getting a refrigerator today.

That is a lot of bite sized updating, so I'll end there.

comic con, packing, life [Jul. 26th, 2008|12:48 pm]
Lewis Powell
I am at comic con. I am sitting in a dean koontz panel primarily because that is how I can get a good seat for the joss whedon/eliza dushku panel taking place immediately afterwards. This makes this a mega-Joss weekend, since I saw joss with the cast and writers of Dr. Horrible yesterday. In other words, comic con is tons awesome. Tons.

I am going to drive back to LA tonight at some point, I think. That way I can spend a huge amount of time sunday packing, and then again monday, tuesday and wednesday. Thursday, I move, or rather some movers will be moving for me.

So, I have a lot to do in the next few days. Luckily, I have some friends who have agreed to help. Then I will be starting a new chapter of my life. I don't quite know what chapter this is, but I can sort of count backwards. New chapter in august. The current chapter starts about a year ago, when I picked up the flute, started exercizing, and found some new direction for my philosophical focus. The first two years in LA are a chapter. There were two chapters in undergrad, one for high school, and two for my life before that. I guess that means I am finishing up chapter 8 and about to start chapter 9. Good thing I don't need to actually write out my own chapters, and can instead just, you know, live them.

It has now been, officially, over 11 months of working out every day.

I think I may not be able to have the 1-year celebratory party on August 8th, because my brother will be visiting, and he and I are thinking about take a couple day trip to Joshua Tree or something of that sort, right around the 8th.

HOWEVER: You had all better believe there will be a party at some point close to the 8th. Maybe that following weekend, I'm not sure.

Things I need to do in preparation for said party:
Pick a day for the party.
Get a location for the party.

Things I need to do to make sure the party is awesome:
Show up.

thank you, that is all.

Time To Learn Calculus [Jul. 6th, 2008|07:10 pm]
Lewis Powell
I am now for realsies adding calculus to the list of things I am learning this summer.

This week I am going to tackle at least 3 and ideally 6 chapters of Spivak's Calculus (the first two chapters are prologue-y so that's less work than they sound like).

GAH! [Jul. 3rd, 2008|07:10 pm]

Apparently, my apartment flooded on Saturday, shortly after I left for Ithaca. Not massive flooding, but enough to soak the carpet in my bedroom pretty thoroughly.

So, I came back from my trip to find that the apartment had flooded, the carpet had been cleaned/dried while I was gone, but stacks of clean laundry that had been on the floor were (still wet) moved to the bed, soaking into my mattress.

Needless to say, this is not what I had hoped to return to.


So glad I already decided to move out next month.

Lewis's instincts about moving: pretty good.

Ithaca Conference Over [Jul. 2nd, 2008|09:08 pm]
Lewis Powell
Back to LA soon.

The conference was awesome. I love philosophy conferences, like, a whole lot.

Met lots of awesome people, heard a lot of awesome talks. Figured out some stuff about my own paper.

Glad to be going back to LA though. Want to get into a solid summer-but-working-on-my-own-stuff routine.

Flight isn't for another like, 8 hours, chilling in my room until 4:00 am when the airport opens. Flight is at 5:30.

I don't expect this to be surprising to anyone: [Jul. 1st, 2008|12:29 pm]

when someone you respect says nice things about you, it makes you feel good.

propellers? wtf? [Jun. 29th, 2008|05:56 am]
Lewis Powell
Apparently my flight to ithaca is taking place in the 3rd century bc.

I've seen hummers larger than this plane. And the hummers also look to have more powerful engines.

(Don't mind me, I am somewhat cranky on close to no sleep, waiting for a plane that the Wright brothers would have been worried about)
