First of all, if my advisor reading this, I just want to say that I’m not doing anything after mid-October. I swear I’m going on a strict diet of research after these things have passed. (He wasn’t too happy when he found out that I had just written a chapter for the book “Halo and Philosophy.”)
I’ve been back from Knoxville for a week now. I couch surfed with a nice retired couple who hosts exchange students. I got to meet Bill Johnson, Heidi Baker, and Bob Jones. Finally, I found someone who’s life is fully admirable, Heidi Baker. I befriended these awesome brothers, Bryan and Jason Terrill. I’ll have to write more about this adventure later, but for now, I just wanted to disclose the my week to come to you all. I realized it being post-worthy as I was catching up with Bryan Terrill, post-trip.
We have a unity event in Santa Cruz right now and all weekend: http://revival1010.org/
(I’m playing saxophone and singing in the gospel choir.)
I’m helping to coordinate a symposium at UCSC for Intelligent Narratives on
Thursday: AI for Games and Fiction: http://eis-blog.ucsc.edu/2010/10/int-sym/
(This is the application of my research.)
I’m going to a Computer AI conference at Stanford on Monday–Wednesday: http://playground.uncc.edu/aiide/
(This is my area of research, but I’m not going for Wednesday, b/c….)
I’m going to KC for the prayer and prophetic from the 14-16, Thursday–Saturday:
(It’s my first time to IHOP KC, and I’m going to get to see how Chris Kim is doing… but I’m actually going to miss the last day b/c….)
The last one is the most important one right now (could use lots of prayer), but I can’t believe I’m doing all this in a week… haha. It feels more ridiculous after I had written it all down. I might also try to do a submission to a conference too, but as my advisor often says: “Don’t go rogue, Sherol.”
My life is full of Jesus, Jazz, and Video Games… haha.
