RIP Steve

So I was just out at the bar after our kickball game and saw this shocking news. Steve Jobs is dead. It hit me like a tons of bricks. I don’t know why, I never knew him personally. I guess he is just someone I always looked up to. He was a “geek” … THE geek. He had a vision that nobody could match. He took Apple from down and out, to #1 in the world. Pretty impressive to say the least. I don’t care if you loved or hated the guy, you have to respect that he was a visionary. He helped create products that people wanted to buy, that before then they never even knew they wanted.

So long Steve …

The essay of doom!

So, I’ve been working toward perhaps going back to school. I’ve now been excepted but before I can actually “enroll” I must first complete this stupid essay, the essay of doom. 🙁 I have no idea why schools do things like this (an essay was part of the application also — and I’ve been excepted so my writting can’t be that bad).

I guess I just don’t understand why schools choose to base things on an essay written on a subject nobody, I would guess, cares anything about. I see education as a way to better ones self, to learn new things that interest them. I feel the “system” is designed in a way that the result is much different. It’s just a shame …
