So it gets to be 4:00 a.m. and bing! I’m awake and can’t go back to sleep. It’s times like this that I wish I could at least fix something at work, but I checked in and everything seems to be running smoothly. Of course the emails I get at night are only log stuff so they just browse really quick with nothing surprising. But that’s better than finding out we’ve been hacked, I guess.
I found out yesterday that of the three pieces I entered into the inter collegiate show the helmet actually made it in. From what I remember from the stats, there were over 170 pieces entered from the U alone, and a handfull from Utah State, BYU, Weber State, and one from one other school in Utah, I think. Or maybe the single one was from Weber State. Anyway, they accepted 71 of the pieces for the show. For some wierd reason I always feel self concious about getting a piece in, especially when so many of the good pieces that other people I know didn’t make it in. Anyway, it was wierd because all night at class I had people coming up to me congratulating me for getting in and telling me how good the helmet looks. I guess the wierdness comes because I really wasn’t aware that so many people know who I am, or made the connection between the helmet and me. I do still feel like an outsider in the program, but that isn’t unusual. I feel like an outsider almost everywhere.
If I ever get the pictures off my phone I snapped today in the gallery I’ll post one of the helmet here. And someday I’ll take a real slide of it.
