It seems you can make something bold by putting asterisks around it:
* like this * (but without the spaces)

You can also italicize something by putting underscores around it:
_ yup _ (again, no spaces)

I haven't figured out how to underline things yet. Doesn't it seem more intuitive for underscores to be underlines?

I wish text messages supported font formatting...

I've been pretty good!

I'm back in the SF Bay- I just got hired as a project manager for Hitachi. It's in the city right next to Cupertino, so it's on familiar ground.
I've been at my parents house for the last month while waiting for the move-in day for my apartment, and it's been driving me decently insane. I move in a week from today, and that day can't come soon enough.

What major is your masters? My parents have been piling on the guilt for a while now to get me to go to grad school, but I'm on the fence. I plan on going to grad school, but I want to make some money first. I also don't plan on doing any more engineering- if I go back, I want to try for an MBA.

There's a summer intern on my team and this is the last week of her internship. There's 15-20 interns total, and as a thank you for all of their hard work, our CEO bought every one of them an $850, 64GB, 3G-enabled iPad 2. All wrapped up in Hitachi Data Systems-branded wrapping.

damn! haha

A Comcast technician came to our house today to fix our modem. He somehow shorted main power to ground at our fucking fuse box and blew out every single surge protector in the house. The house smells like burnt fuses and the microwave and cable box are dead.

8:17pm: The ground in the house is permanently damaged. Turned on a kettle in the kitchen and it killed power in the entire house. The surge protector next to my foot started smoking and fizzed out. Now my room smells really bad. Random current surges are making all of the lights in the house are flicker between super bright and really dim. Disconnecting everything; time to read a book.
