Time-lapsed Blogography Day

Fifteen years ago today, on April 2, 1999, I was a junior in college. It was the first "shorts weather" day of the year, which I enjoyed as I walked from the room in East AJ I shared with Nathan Egge to McBryde Hall for my Operating Systems project demo. Though I had only made a 78% on the midterm exam, my practical skills surpassed my conceptual skills and I walked out of this demo with a 110%, leading to an A for the semester (foreshadowing my future reputation for excellence).

In the evening, I drove out to Lynchburg College with Jen Graves to see yet another concert featuring Arturo Sandoval backed by the VT jazz band. I'm not sure why we were so pressed to see Arturo that we all drove two hours into the wilderness, especially since Arturo had played on our own campus not four months earlier.

After the concert, I had a late night dinner at Shoney's with Jen, Rosie, Kelley, Shac, Andrew Simmons, Jason Chrisley, and Jason Mirick before driving all of the way back to Blacksburg and turning in around 2 AM. 2 AM was (and still is) a super late night for me.
