I am studying a course about basic probability to prepare for an advanced course in probability.

This whole year at school will have me studying probability. I will have the summer off of studies unless I study two courses this winter term. In about three weeks I will have completed the conditional requirements for my admission into graduate school which is this basic course in probability. Next term I think it natural to keep the momentum and study the advanced course in probability. I will then have four courses left to study in the first phase of this graduate school. But I could try two courses this winter term. I would then be allowed to study a course this summer as well. I would then have only two courses to complete next year and could start the winter term with the second part of the graduate school which is one course and a thesis. So I could complete the one extra course next winter and begin the thesis then too.

I am updating some union news for our local wobbly branch web site.

I am just using Dreamweaver to update some new articles on our local wobbly web site. I have been doing wobbly internet stuff for a few hours now off and on with backing up my macintoshes. We met as a branch yesterday to discuss various projects after we picketed a StarBux to protest the firing of union organizers.

Image of myself as pencil necked office worker.

I see my self as an office worker in fact a statistician. To make this image work I have had to buy more plain clothing and dump the hippy image(s) and the punk image(s). I still use a type of law enforcement clothing that makes me fit in with anarchists. Odd as that may seem. But this is really functional clothing for my volunteering work where I carry many pockets but was inspired by carrying of high tech gadgets. I am now planning on purchasing a scooter. I am trying to join the cult of vespa. I am applying for a dealer loan to buy a brand new Vespa Grandturismo GP 200. I also need parking and that might just stop me as my landlord social worker may deny this request for parking. This is a life long dream to own a scooter. May be with my present income I can do this.
