Alright, I’ve got Space Shuttle Fever just like everyone else. Here’s a new NASA documentary on the Space Shuttle, narrated by no less than William Shatner. (Make sure to click through to watch in HD!)
Wikileaks released a large collection of photos from the Tibetan protests in China from March 14-17. The site promptly went down. This may be from the flood of people viewing the images, or it may be from a Chinese denial-of-service attack in an attempt to censor the images contained.
I have mirrored the collection here. It is a very disturbing, very real account of what’s going on in the second most powerful country in the world. I warn you that some of the images are extremely graphic and gory. Please do not view them around anyone who would react strongly to images of dead bodies. But nevertheless, they are very real.
I’m doing the classic “is this what I want to be doing with my life?” thing. Academically, professionally, musically.
There are definitely parts where I am completely dispassionate. Obviously I’m better doing things that interest me, but realistically everything has elements that aren’t fun, so I need to figure out if the big things in my life (my major at school, my work, the amount of work I put in or don’t put in to my music) are: a) Things I enjoy that make the occasional hassle involved a worthwhile effort, or b) Things that I don’t enjoy overall.
I’ve been praying a lot about it, and I have a few ideas of where it would go. At this moment though, I’m clueless of where it will end up. One thing is for sure, though, I’m going to approach 2008 very differently.
Here’s a shortened album of my vacation in Cape May, New Jersey with my mom’s family:
