I suppose I should be glad that LJ changed my language setting to a language that I know so that I was able to change it back to English...

The Saga of the Computer [Oct. 4th, 2010|11:23 pm]

 So...about that computer. The first one had a broken monitor, and so I returned it. The second one (the same, but not broken...or so I thought) had a broken disk drive. The third one was running oddly slow for a brand new computer. Two minutes for Firefox to start? Not when I paid that much. So I went back a third time, This time I brought my dad. He's 6'0'' and no-nonsense, has a great glare, and best of all, he knows what he's talking about. So I got a great deal for a really nice computer, and they're making sure that it works, and shining all of the bells and whistles. 

Fourth time's the charm, right?

Whoo! After five years of not being able to afford it, I am finally typing on my brand new computer! No more mom telling me not to play games, read fanfiction, read fiction period, or play on facebook--because really, does anyone really do anything but play Farmville and Mafia Wars (both boring. If you're one of the few who hasn't tried it, stay away!)

Now, to play the Sims 3 on a computer that won't crash... :)

So tuition is due soon (yaaay.) Almost got the money, just waiting for a few more paychecks.

Sold my house. :) Moving just outside of the city to this big house. I'll live there maybe a year, then I'm moving away from my mother. >:(
On the other hand, the house is gorgeous.

I'm thinking I got another job, too. They'll phone tomorrow or the day after, one way or the other. That will make...um...Musée, Museum, Stats, new one....four. And classes. Dear lord, am I ever going to have time to sleep?

In other news, I have to decide what I want to do next year. Work here? Move to Québec and work there? Move to Europe? Move to Ottawa? Stay? Go back to school for a tourism certificate? >.< Screw'd.

I'm taking fun (and useful! Really) courses this year. Japanese for Beginners (because I'm deathly allergic to fish and a friend who just came back from a year in Japan said I'd last 5 minutes, so I can never go), Ottoman History (because that'll really help me in North America. But I love the Prof and I always get As in his classes, so...) and the Politics of Human Rights, Local and Global (that one actually is useful. There's a museum opening for Human Rights, and I want that job. :)

I also won (?) $250 from the University. I got the check in the mail, but no explanation, just a little note that says 'award.' Beats me. Hopefully I'll get a call explaining it.

Finally, I got into a fight with my mom and she took away the car. I work early tomorrow, and the three days after that I work 9am-11pm. If I don't get my car back, I am Le Screwed. My evening job is in the scary part of downtown. Why did we fight? I forgot to empty the dishwasher. Overkill much?

 Oh god is it over yet? Less than one week left until
  • 10-15 pg paper re-do on the historiography of gay history in canada (not started),
  • 20-25pg paper on the newspaper coverage of the 1950 Red River Flood (10pgs done, and can easily crank off another three), and
  • 10-15pg reading journal (1.5 pages written)
are due. To top it off, I started a new job on thursday, and have to be out of the house by 7:15, latest. That means up at 6. Since last August, I've only seen 6am from the other end--it's generally when my all-nighters end. I am so exhausted that I fell asleep in my kraft dinner last night. Ugh. And I'm working thurs-fri-sat-sun at a teleresearch place. I am so not used to this, it isn't even funny.

On the other hand, 
  • dinner @ friend's house next thurs
  • dinner @ my fav restaurant fri
  • cabin on sat.
  • 2 easy essays due mon
  • going to children's museum with my 3-year-old cousin at some point. There's a huge building project right by there with three big cranes. He's going to love it.
  • And I get to babysit him sometime!
Basically, the month of hell is almost over! Begin count-down!

So, I decided that I should probably put an entry up here so that I don't have an empty page.

So I got a speeding ticket today. The cop who gave it to me was nice, but now I have two demerits and will have to pay extra for my license next year instead of less. For the next 4 years, in fact. ;n; Just a bit upset. My visa's ready to kill me already. Or kiss me, you never know.

Now, off to start finish the presentation I have to do tomorrow, check my e-mail, check my facebook games, and make sure that I haven't missed a new post on LT3. (I haven't but it never hurts to check. Addict much?)

...I'll probably start my presentation at 3 am, just like last time. >.< fml.
