Not that many people even read my journal or anything. But I’ve just taken a small break from LJ, which I suggest that people might do from time to time. There is life beyond LJ (really, there is). I guess it helped that Suzanne and I were having difficulties, but we sorted everything out and all is good again. But I still didn’t have the urge to post. I’ve just haven’t feel the need or the urge to post. And it doesn’t help that LJ doesn’t work when I do have the urge. I am kinda pissed at the LJ outages since I have a paid account and all. I’ve dabbled with blogger, but was not impressed. And I saw DiaryLand and quickly ran away. So I guess I will renew my account.
So what else has gone on. I got a promotion at work and now I am officially in charge of the warehouse and am on salary. Yay me. I am also filling out the actual application to graduate. Amazing. Suzanne bought menew speakers. They’re not the Klipsch 5.1 speakers that I was looking at, but they work. And they work REAL GOOD.
My computer crashed a couple of weeks ago. Now that was fun. I had finally gotten the replacement RAM from Crucial and I installed it and basicly my computer went bonkers. So I went ahead and reformatted the HD thinking that my roommate had gotten a virus or something on it. Still didn’t fix it. So I did some snooping around and I eventually found out that it was most likely my motherboard reacting to the RAM and not a virus. I have anASUS A7A266 board and there is a problem with the board reading the memory or something, so only one of my memory slots work. So I took out one ot the memory chios and now everything is working fine. It sucks that I had to reinstall everything, and I had to recopy all of my CD’s onto the computer. I also loss all the pictures that I had. Most are burned on a CD-R, and others I have originals in photo book. So it’s a matter of just recopying/scanning them again.
Suzanne’s birthday is comming up and I am tossing ideas around on what to get her. Actually I’m waiting to see how much money I will have to spend on her. I have enough to get her some good stuff, but I want to see how much I’ll get with my salary increase. And then there should also be some financial aid money comming in since it looks like I might get away with only $50 worth of books for all of my classes. On the other hand, the mighty Metro needs to goto the shop for what I hope is only an oil leak. **sigh** What I need to do is look for a new car. I’m not a big fan of Saturn’, but I think that they are still having a 0% finance thing going on. If they are and if I was approved, I wouldn’t mind getting a SC2
But if I don’t then I would have to go through my Credit Union. And the rates are much higher. But I guess I could look at more cars then. I don’t want anything fancy or big. I guess I want something bigger than a Metro, and kinda sporty; and new. I want a new car; I would settle for a 2001 model, but I want it new.
Well, that is pretty much what’s up with me. I did have a vacation where I decorated my room. Pictures are here at Yahoo in the Room Pictures Album. I forgot to resize the pics, so I just posted them all there. Basically I covered my half of the room with pictures that I got out of Rolling Stone Magazine. It’s pretty cool and you should take a look at them and tell me what you think of them. I’m suppose to get a copy of Photoshop and when I do, I’ll resize them and post them in the Portraits Community or something. O. K. I gotta get to bed.
