Computer problems, school stuff, makeup, Happy. Longer post than I thought it'd be. XD
Hello, peoples!!! *huggles* Thanks for the comments last time. OMG, I know. It's been a week since I last posted here!! ^^;;; Well, if you've been reading my posts on theO...you should know what's up. Arigatou to those that commented last time: Angelbest (it's been a while!!), Lute, Kiba, Reki, and Deb. :) I really appreciate it!! I know this is going to be weird, but I'm going to make this a short post. I guess it's just a little update for the myO crowd. ^^ Cause I've been doing some short updates on my World, too. Next time I'll copy and paste the post in both places. So yeah, thanks again!!
Alrighty, so if you haven't heard, my computer's been dead. ^^;; For a week. It got some sort of virus...horrible. It wouldn't even START. It wouldn't boot up. So I had my brother D come over to help me...a few times...but each time he would forget something that he'd need to fix it. My brother is really, um, I don't know how to put it. :/ But let's just say he doesn't like helping people all that much, lol. He'll do it only if he gets something in return, even if it's for family--even for his most favoritest ONLY sister. So when he would come over, the first thing he'd ask for is FOOD. "What do you have to eat?" *rummages through pantries and fridge* He just takes food without asking. And THEN he starts working on my comp and finds out that he brought the wrong boot discs and stuff. He also doesn't like coming over 2 days in a row...so that's why it's taken this whole fixing process SO long. He'd come over, do a little, leave, and then I'd have to wait another day or more for him to come back and work some more. ~__~ The last time he came over, friday, he got my comp working enough so that it'd start and I have my internet.
He's coming over in a little bit to finish everything up. *crosses fingers* Unfortunately I WILL have to reinstall EVERYTHING. It saddens me the most about photoshop. But thanks to Jes (ulterego333) I have a way now of getting it back. :) I'm just hoping it will work. I'm sure it will. She's a life-saver! <3 Cause otherwise I'd have to buy it. ^^;; I know that someday I really SHOULD buy PS and Illustrator...so that when this happens again, lol, I won't have to try and find more less than legal ways of getting it. XD But it's just so darn expensive! Um, so yeah, once everything is fixed, I'll finally be able to put the finishing touches on that wallpaper of mine and submit it. I can't wait to get rid of it. It's been over 5 months since my last wallpaper submission on AP. >>' Now I'm not even a ranked waller there. I guess I don't care, but it sure was nice being in the top 100.
The other day I had to buy art supplies for my typography class. LOTS of them. I totally was under the impression that this class would be mostly computer artwork. Apparently not. I had to get gray layout markers, black markers, tracing paper, 2 rulers, etc. etc. etc. etc. The total was over $200. -__-' Ridiculous. It's such a rip-off. Schools really really know how to rip off students. I guess the huge tuition fee just isn't enough for them! We also have to buy all the expensive books and supplies!! :/ Anyhoo, my dad wasn't in a good mood that day, lol...seeing his money disappear on that stuff. And it's all for a class that I don't know if I'll like. It's my NIGHT class, and that first class last week really didn't go over well for me. What with getting a bad allergic reaction and all. I hope it was a fluke and that this week will be better. It still doesn't help that this class goes until 10pm (just about)...*sigh*
My other classes are fine though. I have a marketing quiz this week, either tomorrow or wednesday. So I really need to take some more notes and study. :/ That's what's a bit annoying about this class though: that he doesn't give us notes. It's all on us to read the book and take them. A big pain is what that is. But oh well. My two fashion classes...just like my other classes with that biatch. Tons of notes, lots of projects in the future, bleh. Gym is gym. It's just a hassle since that's in the morning, and then I have all those hours in between until my night class. So it's back and forth all day. DX [my parents don't like that! I still don't drive so it's on them to take me.]
Today I mostly watched the hockey game. Unfortunately my Flyers lost. :( It was such a close game, and action packed, too. But jeez. .___. I could rant on it, lol, but I don't think anyone would care. XD During it though, I asked my mom if she'd like to put make-up on me! ^^; Yeah, even though I'm 21, I never wear make-up. I don't even really know how to put any on. I'm just too lazy...too lazy and I think it takes too much time. But when my mom did it today, I think it turned out well. :) I look perdy! It was just a light bit, but it was enough to make a difference. Too bad no one can see it, haha. Just staying at home. XD Here's a pic though! I doubt you can really tell, so if you can't, well here's just another pic of me. Lol.
Ok, so lately...I've had anxiety about some things. School, of course, my future regarding the whole internship thing, and Happy. Yes, my guinea pig. I LOVE him to death. He's adorable. He's sweet. I got him before my b-day...but I honestly didn't think that he would require so much work. Well, by work I mean cleaning. I had no idea that guinea pigs were SUCH POOP MACHINES. I swear. He does billions of poops all the time! When I clean them out, there's more again. And it stinks. :/ It just sucks really. Especially since my brother Corey complains about his stink, and now my parents are saying we should just give him away. My dad helps me with cleaning his cage out, and he thinks it's quite a hassle, too. :[ So like...I just don't know what to do. I don't think I can keep this up for 7+ years, as much as I love him, I just don't think that a guinea pig is right for me. I wub my Happy...but I suppose he should go to a better home. ^^; One that is used to guinea pigs and their habits and doesn't mind all the cleaning efforts. I'll miss him, but I guess it's the right thing to do...right? I don't know. >.< I'm really conflicted.
Umm...*thinks* Oh yeah. XD Um, this will sound really stupid, but this is another..."anxiety." Hah, not really. But it's bugging me. I CAN'T FIND MY BOOKMARKS. Not for the comp, but for my BOOKS. Lol. When I finished reading this one book last week...well, I guess I didn't put my bookmarks where I usually do! And so now I can't find them. T___T I wouldn't mind if it was just a piece of paper or one I can buy in the store, but they're special. One I was using was a card from one of my Pullip dolls. So I'd have to buy him over again just to get it, lol. And the other is a special character card that came in one of the limited edition box sets of Basilisk. :/ Of my favorite guy [though now I can't remember his name!] So yeah, I've looked and looked, but I can't find them anywhere. I'm just hoping my dad didn't throw them away...yes, I know, it sounds so stupid, but they mean a lot to me. ^^;;;;
Ok. That's all. I better stop this! It's a lot longer than I expected. XD But most of it is sorta rehashed stuff that's been said on my World. So if you comment there, then I guess you could just comment on the new stuff in this one. :) *huggles* Thanks for visiting me! Take care! Good luck to those in school and work!
