small items of happiness...

To go from my house in Anderson, just south of Redding, to school, which is in North Redding, I usually hop on Interstate 5. Now that ribbon of concrete runs all the way from Mexico to British Columbia, so I shouldn't have been surprised to see what I did.

One of the long-haul semis had a Canadian flag sticker stuck to the bumper of his trailer. And when I saw that, I was happy.

It's one of those small items of happiness that brighten what was otherwise a dreary day. And in keeping with the luck, when I got to school, I found a parking spot at the front of the lot, which is very rare.

Yep. So far it's been a *good* day. :)

all that worry...for nothing.

Checking my email tonight...


We have recommended to the UC, Berkeley Graduate Division that you be
admitted to the Master's program in Information Management and Systems.
Your selection was based on a careful review from among a large number
of applicants. Your application greatly impressed the members of the
selection committee and we look forward to you joining us at Berkeley
this fall.

Please note that at this point your application is only recommended for
admission. The Graduate Division at UC Berkeley actually offers formal
admission. Although this is more or less a formality, you are still not
technically admitted until you receive the admission letter from the
Graduate Division. I expect you will receive this letter within the
next few weeks. You may receive a letter requesting further
information/documentation. If that is the case, feel free to contact me
and I'll work with you to make sure everything is taken care of as
quickly as possible.
