I’m sitting here at Yale, enjoying some Cheez-It’s, a hot pocket, and a cup of water, and I’ve decided I need to add something new to my list of plans for 2007.  I need to stop whistling when I have nothing to say to somebody that I don’t know that well.  A student just came up and asked me for some help.  So I followed them down the stairs to the 4th floor to see what the problem was.  Along the way it was awkwardly silent, so I started whistling a short melody that I made up on the spot.  I’ve noticed that I do this all the time.  It’s dorky and it annoys me.  I don’t know if it’s a nervous thing, from shyness, or what.  But it must stop.

Just thought I’d share.
