room for rent

Looking for a roommmate for next semester.
Looking for either a couple, a complete computer nerd (hacker a plus), a sci fi geek, or a math major.
The place is about 5 blocks from the University of Washington. The room is really really big and its $425 (its about the size of two rooms), or a smaller room for $275.

Please email me at if you are interested in the place

furniture and the like

Yea I bet this has been posted/ asked numerous times before.. but I never payed attention to it much before because I had no need.. but my predicament is: I need furniture.... I'll most likely be moving for winter qtr.. into a house to share with friends if we can work it out, and I'm in need of things like a bedframe, mattress, dresser, desk, and probably more stuff..(I'd finally be moving out of the dorms- so I really will be moving with pretty much nothing)... any suggestions where I could go about looking for these things for cheap?? Of course, the key being: cheap.. I dont know- can I get quality things at somewhere like Goodwill? or seach classifieds??

I'd appreciate any thoughts, thnx

(no subject)

Around the middle of this quarter I dropped one of one of my majors and picked up European Studies in its place. I followed all the forms-- retrieving my papers from the first major (well, going there and officially dropping, since they told me it would suffice to keep my papers with my other major), and then getting permission and additional copies of my transcripts from the History department, which I brought to the other department and then went through the ritual of handing them over.

I'm now getting together my paperwork for applying to a study abroad, and one of the reasons for my statement of purpose is that studying in Europe is mandatory for the European Studies major-- however, my transcripts insist that I'm still in my previous, now forgotten major.

So, background given, my questions: has any of you suffered a similar phenomena when switching majors? Will this affect my application? I'm considering puttering around the departments to see if something went astray, but for all other ostensible purposes I seem to be in the majors I'm actually working towards.

Basketball Tickets

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has some basketball tickets for the home game against WSU. The game will take place on Jan 23rd. If someone has some (preferable just one) that they'd like to sell it'd be greatly appreciated.
Also, if anyone knows a certain place where I can get (a) ticket(s), please feel free to let me in on that.

Thanks in advance.

Winter Quarter...

Next quarter, I'm signed up to take math 126. I took math 125 last winter quarter at community college and I hated it. I got a 3.0 in math124 and a 2.9 in math125. I wouldn't be taking 126 this quarter except that I found out when I got up here that I need it for one of my majors (econ). Basically, I think I'm absolutely screwed and I'm thinking of changing that major.

I have a question for anyone who's taking/has taken math 126: did you find it much harder than 124 or 125, how so? Would you recommend taking 126 after six months of no intense math classes?
