UC Berkeley 233 – Berkeley, California – 2006

Currently Watching Running Scared Paul Walker is pretty amazing in this role. Don’t let his “Into the Blue” and “Fast and the Furious” movies scare you off. This movie reminded me of the game Max Payne, and the turns and

UC Berkeley 231 – Berkeley, California – 2006

It’s been a month since the last final of the worst semester ever ended, and almost a month (22nd) since I’ve arrived in New York. Turns out, New York’s welcomed me with its fair share of due diligence. Here are

UC Berkeley 229 – Berkeley, California – 2006

So far, most of the tasks have been somewhat challenging but nothing I couldn’t do. One seemed somewhat mundane (hiding rows in excel spreadsheets that didn’t pertain to a certain brand), but because there were 2600 rows with 15 different

I took the better half of the day just ordering a new laptop. They mailed me a new shell for me to swap my DVD Rom/Battery/Hard Drive into, and it arrived in less than 24 hours. I’ve been given specific

UC Berkeley 226 – Berkeley, California – 2006

Got to meet the CEO, Anne Mulcahy, and CFO, Larry Zimmerman, of Xerox today. I felt that the two complemented each other very well and the fact that Anne Mulcahy was obviously very excited to see us didn’t hurt, either.

UC Berkeley 225 – Berkeley, California – 2006

I got to meet my manager, Paul Thai, today. It seems like he’s a real nice guy, although we didn’t talk to much other than discussing the general expectations for both of us. I get the feeling that I’ll be
