There's far fewer Pokemon in the wilderness than I thought there'd be.

This whole class actually looks like it'd be fun to work through.
World Builders is a planet-creation site for teachers, students, and SciFi enthusiasts. Ten units guide construction from stellar dust through life forms in water and on land culminating in ecological communities. Lessons, assignments, links, science notes, tests, rubrics, example planets. Constructivist project based learning.

It's that time.

I loved +U.S. Cellular, but their service started to feel a little dated. Having to bring my phone into a physical location every time I needed to switch/replace/activate phones was a huge inconvenience, and being able to do all of the above with Google Fi was a very welcome relief.

When I bought my 5X, it took almost 4 days to find some time to get out to a USC store to get it activated (by a couple of high school girls that took almost 3 hours to figure out how to activate an unlocked phone). It was pretty incredible to be able to do the same thing with my replacement 5X from the comfort of my couch.

I absolutely love Fi. Got it with a N6 and can't wait until the new Nexus phones get released. Could get into a T-Mobile plan with my family, but at this point no matter what I'm not giving up my Fi service.

Data is a little expensive if you start going over 5GB, but if you can stay on wifi most of the time, the whole experience is amazing.

Just found a comic I drew in 2009.

I think it's pretty clear why comics never worked out.

Got a notification that my to-be-picked-up-at-facility package had arrived a day early, so I called customer center to ask if I could pick it up a day early, and got transferred around because none of the operators on call spoke English. I asked if I'd get a notification at some point to indicate when it was ready for pickup during that day, and they didn't understand, said "Thank you sir," and they hung up. For a "customer center", it's surprising they don't have anyone on staff that can talk to customers.

There's two-hour pay parking on the street, but if you want to park overnight, your best bet is the public parking garage across the street that costs $8/night, cash only. In our room, the toilet wasn't working when we arrived and one of the two lights in the bedroom was burned out. Wxyz is alright if you need a quick drink or two, but you'll probably have problems with anything complicated since they hire beginner bartenders with no help. All in all, I would have given two stars, but construction on the building next door starts loud at 7AM with jack hammers and yelling from the workers, making it literally impossible to sleep in. According to the staff, construction will continue for another month or two. I generally recommend Aloft, but definitely wouldn't recommend this one.

Always fast, always delicious. They literally run from JJ's to their car, and from their car to your door.

Food: The food was excellent. I've been there twice now and my favorite thing on the menu is (big surprise) the burrito enchilada style. But regardless of what you get, be sure to try the sweet sauce with your nachos. It's pretty much good enough to bathe in. Decor: It feels like a ma and pa restaurant. If I didn't know better, I would have assumed it was. Service: Could have been better. They're fast at what they do, but sometimes a little too brisk. They'll start out by asking if you even need a menu.
