fell asleep

Today i woke up at 5, eat breakfast, and fell asleep in a chair =( I think i slept for about 1 hour, so it’s not that bad, but i have to get myself going in the morning else i will fail with this sleep schedule.

The rest of the day went smooth, i fell asleep after 15 minutes at my 11:00 nap and slept between 18:15 and 18:45 in the car to my aunt, instead of sleeping at 19 as i should.

I’ve read through 300 chapters of  One piece at two days, and the white pages really hurt my eyes, i get red and really tired. I have to pause and do other things, either away from the comp or anything else at the comp, because everything else is in dark colors.

I finished the chapter of Python’s core data types at my aunt, but the book won’t let me code yet, i have already a todo list of what i want to program.

Back from 10-day camp

The reason i haven’t written much for a long time is partly because i have been gone much, and partly because i am lazy =P  Yesterday i came home from a camp called “Efterläger” in swedish, and it basically means “After-camp”. The reason it’s called that is because it is the year after the confirmation, and you can go back to the estate where you were confirmed last year. Stiftsgarden in Rattvik is a wonderful place so i went back there, and together with 10 others i helped running the estate by working in the kitchen and such.

As the Gecko edubook’s final units ain’t ready yet, i didn’t have any computer to bring with me, and so i had to live without the internet, but the days were filled with activities so i didn’t really miss it. I did borrow my leaders laptop once, and after fixing up her windows installation a little i plugged in my USB-stick with puppylinux, i haven’t bothered to get larch on it, but i forgot the one of my 4 sticks that had my passwords so i couldn’t check my e-mail or log in anywhere. The internet connection sucked mayor time so after surfing a bit on Slashdot i gave up and did other things instead.

When i got home i ran “y -Syu”, y being a alias for yaourt, and installed the new kernel together with some other things. I’ll reboot later to start running that one, and hopefully there’ll be no errors, i haven’t really had any problems with updating ever, but i guess that one day they will come and punish me for procrastinating my backups.

I’ve made it through the first part of my python book, ‘Learning Python’, from O’reilly books and have now started reading about strings and dictionaries after coding some ‘Hello world/Arch is the best’ scripts.

I have been up for soon 5 hours now, i got up at 5 and have now started my second attempt at the Everyman sleep schedule, last try failed as i catched a cold. I’ll take 30 minute naps at 11 and 19 and sleep from 01 to 05. I bet that will give me at least some time to read my Python book.

Gonna go down and build a Dice Tower out of LEGO(R) bricks now, and play RISK star wars edition with my lilbro.

Back from Italy

Now I’m back from italy, having missed the internet a lot. I were going with the orchestra bsm, Borlänge Skolors Musikkår, and we drove down to Lido Di Jesolo by bus through Germany and Austria. Down there we participated in a Swedish music festival where a few orchestras go down every year to march on the streets every evening and in the end we have a big concert where we all play together. We also went into Venice one day and took a tour with gondola. After the tour we had some free time and i went into the San Marco church. That was a damn cool church.

I came home yesterday, and after eating and reading some stuff on the internet i slept for about 11 hours. I slept another 30 minutes this afternoon so now I’m refreshed. I solved a Rubik’s Cube for the first time today, and I think I will start reading my python book later this evening.

For some reason i cannot -Syu my system, but when i succeed i will probably get a heart attack of all updates =D
