November’s about to end and December about to roll in. And once again, there aren’t enough weekends before Christmas! ROAR
So much to do and so much to accomplish and the Christmas rush is already around the corner. Last year, I literally got sick because of all the Christmas activities. I refuse to attend as many events this year. >_>
And I need to finish Christmas shopping before mid December. I hope.
And this is where I’ll be over the weekend, where I’ll catch up with Supernatural because I haven’t seen anything after Ep3.
The thing I like about being old enough to work for a living is actually getting paid for said work. Yeah, being old enough forces you to grow up some, learn some control, and the sad fact of not having enough time for the most part because you’re too busy working. At the same time, actually having money when you need it for whatever reason (be it life, vacation and fandom-related stuff) feels good.
I still remember life as a fangirl while being a poor college student, or having to beg the parents for some money or do favors just to buy this and that fandom related thing. At least now when I fangirl and want something, my impulse to buy is curbed by the stronger “Can I afford this?!” followed shortly by a quick mental accounting of how much money I can spare. Fact is, there is money I can actually use without needing to beg for it. The lack of desperation about anything is always a good thing to me.
This is the product of my seeing a certain fandom (that has a bunch of weeping teens for the past week…) scamper about and wail because their favorite artist just released so much stuff (and about to release more next month) that they can no longer afford.
Such is the life of a jaded worker. I learned to live merrily with what’s accessible (affordable) without weeping for more. The most I do these days is a big sigh and then move on, because there’s work to be done and/or it’s money better spent elsewhere.
It’d be nice if money just grew out of my backyard but I can’t have everything.
Going to disappear again for a week, but at least this time it’s for a good reason. I’ll be on that island.
I’ll come back after I’ve had some rest.
I’ve been ignoring my fandoms for the most part lately, and been much more productive at work. So I feel like I earned this vacation.
I AM BACK
Well, as “back” as I can manage. My computer is now perfect again (after a reformat and a new vidcard), with better memory (8gb omg weeping for joy). The new set up actually makes me want to play MMOs again.
It’s spreading. My work laptop earlier just showed the blue screen of death and then started to “dump files”. omfg
It told me to reboot and well at least that seemed to have stabilized my laptop (one can hope). But I lost ALL the work I had pre-blue screen, and had to do everything again, with prompt saving every 2-3 minutes or so.
Geez. On the upside, my home PC just collapsed once but it managed to turn on again tonight. Little mercies.
PC diagnosis is that my vidcard is dying and that I should replace it asap before it fries my processor, too, because it’s overheating. For now, I have a temporary fix and it’s working but we don’t know how long this’ll last.
I’m backing EVERYTHING up now while my PC manages to last longer than 30 minutes. I may even have a full 24 hours. Gasp.
Then yes, a reformat by weekend. :<
It’s like a curse. My IRL just entered the zone where Murphy’s law is supreme.
Not sure if my hard drive is dying but I can’t stay logged in Windows longer than 8 minutes. Yes, I had a timer to monitor this craptastic shit. The longest was 8 minutes before my pc decides to enter power saving mode without my prompts.
Posting from my iPad right now since I don’t have the laptop with me (it’s at the shop. I did mention Murphy’s law).
Right now I’m trying to backup as many files as I can in the 8 minute timeframe.
You know it’s a bad sign when a few days off tumblr (and therefore not seeing fandom wank of all levels) feels more like a breath of fresh air than actually missing it.
"I am a writer, and I will finish the shit that I started."
I was offline for a few days and I come back to 30 followers. What happened….
Hi Hello Hi~ I’m alive
Thanks for all the messages I received. I didn’t expect those o.o
I hadn’t been around due to a lot of stuff. Last week was work but the literal monsoon came and flooded my country. My subdivision’s pretty safe and didn’t sink, but the roads that lead out of my area and to other cities/parts of the city I’m in are flooded in, ranging from ankle deep to neck deep in water.
I’m safe and the rest of my family, but stuck for the time being. Haven’t seen the sun for 3 days now, and the rain didn’t stop (it’s still pouring) either.
It’s like no man’s land right now. News said 90% of the capital’s flooded in, so I’m counting myself among the lucky 10%. Hopefully it doesn’t get worse from here.
