3 news items

I've been slowing reading a computer science book, with the plan to read all my other CS books too, and then my physics books, and then maybe some other books too.  Anyway, I spend a lot of time watching stupid things on tv, and I could be doing something a lot more useful with that time.  I had timed myself before, reading a political science schoolbook, and it consistently took me 5 minutes to read one page.  So I'm assuming that rate.  So I added up the time it would take to read all my CS books, and it came out to 473:50, and if I read 12 hours a day then that's 40 days.  So when I'm reading, I'm going to be doing nothing else, no tv, no music.  And we'll see if I can do it.

I have a diet plan that's pretty cheap, and I looked stuff up online and it seems reasonably healthy.
beans x 3
oatmeal x 3
vegetables x 3
water 60 oz, from a bottle with a filter
Total (cereal)
B12 pill
It's about $3.13/day, 1500 calories, 56 grams of protein.

The apartment we live in is 955$ and it's going up to 1054$.  Which is stupid.  Because my mom is the only one with a job and it's not affordable, it was barely affordable at $955.  So anyway, I said this is now definitely the time to seek a new apartment.  So I made a list of apartments (found on the interbutts) that are close to my mom's work and are cheaper than this one, and supposedly we're going to go drive and look at the apartments tomorrow to see if they look live-in-able and find out the real costs, since the interbutts are probably wrong, and if they have apartments available.
