Okay, here’s what’s been happening lately: My mom is going on a trip next week to Canada for THE WHOLE WEEK. That’s kind of a mixed blessing in that she’ll be gone, so I’ll have to put up with Chris’s shit all week, but Jamie gets to sleep over more than normal. ^_^ So she decided that her laptop was too much of a burden to take with her, and told me that she was going to buy me one of my own (she made it sound more like she was taking her laptop with her, though). Regardless, I’m getting an HP pavillion that rivals Lee’s computer. Yeah, it kicks that much ass. I’ll post the specs in the extended post part.
Also now that I’ve taken on the 22 credits, I’m starting to feel the strain. Though, it’s not too bad. …yet. I have three oral presentations to give at the end of the semester, but I figure that it can’t be that much worse than last semesterm and I managed to pull through that one. Work is the biggest thing. See, they finally decided it was high time to give me actual things to do, which I agree with, but now I have no time for my homework. Ah well, such is the life of a starving college student, ne?
Oh, I forgot to mention I got a new car, too. It’s a 2006 blue Chevy Cobalt with black interior and pretty much every add-on you could think of without making it that retarded SS with the 6-cylinder engine. Yes, it has OnStar and XM, which I couldn’t live without. Yes, I’m spoiled. I know.
And now the further proof of how spoiled I am! (Keep in mind that 99% of the time when I talk about getting new stuff, I’m not the one doing the buying.)
The specs for my laptop:
AMD Athalon 3500+
1024MB DDR SDRAM
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M IGP with 128MB DDR
100GB (4200 rpm) drive
Double Layer DVD±RW and CD-RW combo drive
15.4″ HD display
802.11 wireless LAN
(That’s pretty much right off the spec sheet. For $50 and another week in waiting time, I could have gotten BlueTooth. ;_; Ah well, I get it tonight. I shall not complain.)
