I've had to use PHP for a couple things at work recently, and although it can be a very handy tool for stuff on the web, I'm finding that I dislike it as a language. At times it seems nicely put together, but others hastily thrown into a pile. And when core language functions don't act like all the manuals say they should, it can get ultimately frustrating.

Anyway, kung fu tonight, but also my friend's band ernie's penultimate show -- they are breaking up after the 19th of July. That's sad, as I really liked them, but hopefully their sound will reappear as they move on to new projects. Not sure which I'll be going to -- it's always a test of my resolve on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays whether I should go to an extremely tiring (physically and mentally -- it is very frustrating to not be able to do things you want to do and that others do so easily -- having a mirrored wall reflect your failures every time you look at it is no fun) kung fu session or try to find something else much more important. I feel like such a little kid sometimes -- I've thought about faking sick a couple times to avoid it, but really, I'd just be lying to myself. I really do want to be in some sort of acceptable physical state before I go away to Carnegie Mellon in a month and a half.
