When not in class, roaming around the computer labs, or in front
of a computer terminal, I'm often:
- At the SF Aikido Center
(1755 Laguna), earning miles in the
"Aikido Frequent Flyer Club." Some info about the Japanese martial
art of aikido.
- In the kitchen, trying to develop the perfect cinnamon, oatmeal,
peanut butter & walnut chocolate chip cookie recipe. Or something
- Rambling amongst the area's used bookstores.
When I get a little money, I buy books; And, if any is left,
I buy food and clothes. -Erasmus
