Day 017: I'm trying


Vienna 1971—A Student Journal
A year of music, study, travel, sightseeing & friends.

Day 17 — I’m trying
17-August-1971 (Thur.)


Tried to catch up on school work… tried to… tried to… tried… trie… tri… t…


New literary invention. Notice the unique literary device I just created (at age 22)—literary truncation. Very clever. I must have been tired.

No news today. Just German language work.

Learning German with CD-ROMs. I may be tempted to go out and buy a Berlitz or Total Immersion German language CD course today. Just to see if I can revive my knowledge of German. I don’t have any time to do this, but it may be fun.

[Later today—2007]…just bought the Berlitz German Premier CD-ROM course (8 CDs). Maybe, I’ll review just a bit. This version can also be used on an iPod. Yes!

DigMyPics. Tomorrow, I’ll be sending off about over 600 slides to be scanned. I was considering Kodak’s slide scanning services that I know are probably excellent. However, these slides have been sitting around for 36 years, and despite being in plastic sleeves, may have been exposed to some dust over time. Thus, I am going with a scanning service (DigMyPics.com) that provides additional cleaning and attention to each slide. It’s more expensive but, in this case, totally worth it. We’ll see.
