Denton Arts and Jazz Festival

Recently I paid a visit to the Denton Arts and Jazz Festival:

The arts and jazz festival is chock full of all sorts of people, art, and jazz as you might imagine. It was interesting to walk around town and see what Denton has to offer beyond engineering. I mean I'm not saying engineering is all I care about... but it makes up for a healthy portion of it.

This is one of the stands. It's a lovely display of trinkets and things

If you've ever been to an art festival, you'll know that there are plenty of these things scattered around. It's a healthy mix of different types of artsy fartsy things that I can't really understand or appreciate very much, but I can pretend to as I 'ooh' and 'ahh' at people's work. I love it when people 'ooh' and 'ahh' at my work, so it's only fair to give a little take a little. Even if the other party doesn't fully understand all the work that goes into a project, it's nice to give credit where it's deserved. I think we need a city-wide Denton Engineering Festival, where everyone can show off the trinkets and toys they make over the years.

Unfortunately I lost my iPod that weekend. A sad weekend indeed. I put hours of work into getting my own app onto that thing, and I lose it... :(

In other news, it's dead week. I guess I've posted about Dead week before. This time, Dead week came back much quicker. It depends on who you ask I guess.. But at first this semester crawled by... then all of the sudden it was gone! First exam is this Thursday!!
