I met another part of the OCTO Empire last week. He's this guy named Erik who just sort of lives in Spain for no readily apparent reason.
On a not entirely unrelated note, I'm feeling like I might not MEng. It's partly, I really like my job now, my job over the summer wasn't quite so hot, do I really want to gamble on which something else will be, especially if I'm sorta tied to it? I was actually looking at the 6A internship meng program, but it would eat up two summers and not be location-flexible. *shrug*
