Good Afternoon Somnus!
Long time no talk my friend :)
-I've been crazy busy with school these days.
If everything gos according to plan, I
have one more year & a semester before I transfer
to a Cal State & pursue my B.A degree.
-Feel free to read my recent previous
msgs & then answer all of the questions
together in one long post, to make things easier for yourself.
I say that because, I can't remember for sure but I believe
that I recently posted at least 2X before sending this GBP.
So it would be a good idea to look & check
on your page before answering this GBP.
-How have you been since we last spoke?
-Got any big plans for Spring Break?
-Are you still working during spring break?
-How is your darling Lily doing?
-Seen any new films lately?
-Got any past or recent Spring Break stories to share?
I saw this festive Ad & it made me laugh.
Sorry the date is old lmao.
I don't recall what all I've responded to...
Yea, Verizon agreed to basically give it to us for free, so we got it. My plan is to stick with it until my husband
forces me to get a different phone.
My 2-in-1 is an HP Spectre. I nearly broke it and was running around town trying to find a replacement as it was being
worked on. Best Buy still had it, but only in this really, really ugly black and gold color scheme and it was going to
cost another $400 more than my standard, sexy silver model cost me. I guess my silver model was super popular though
because no one sells my current 2-in-1 anymore. There are similar variations, but I like this exact one... Anyways, I
didn't buy the ugly replacement... for obvious ugliness. If they had silver, I'd probably be rocking 2 of these puppies
now. We had to pick it up my baby before it was officially finished being fixed because we moved away. He said he
wouldn't charge us for the work because he had it for so long and said it was still blue screening. He never negated the
cost of the part he put into it, but it's alright. It's been working nearly perfectly, so I don't know what he was
talking about. It blue screened once after a Windows update, and I barely realized it because it had a goddamn QR code
on the screen... but it was minor and managed to self boot out of it before I could really see what was happening.
Hasn't had any problem since.
I got my Spectre because it was a touch screen, light weight, reasonable capacity, reasonable screen size, etc. It had
good ratings online and was reasonably priced. I love it. It's a perfect size for traveling with me to class. Much more
manageable than my old laptop. And I don't need it to do as much as my previous computers did. It's mostly for browsing
and school work. I can play Candy Crush on it too, which is magical.
Yea, Lily has some extreme anxiety, and even more extreme separation anxiety when it comes to me. It's going to affect
how long I can work in a typical day.
I am out of work since we moved. I am knocking out pre-reqs for a program, then work for about a year and apply to the
program, then hopefully get into the program. Because of Lily, I really can't do work and school together.
No, I don't use VPN services.
Ah, I started drinking vegan protein shakes in the morning. I put on some weight since I stopped working and the
treadmill is broken, so I gotta fix the diet for now. Lots of protein! The first one was hard to get down, but the
hungrier you are, the better they taste. And they grow on you. Reminds me of a Slim Fast shake I once took. Not gourmet,
Ah, we stopped to get gas before we turned in the rental car. I didn't believe what I had been hearing about sneaky
Mexicans taking advantage of tourists until that point. My mum was standing outside the driver's side while the car was
being filled and someone who worked there walked up to her and tried to talk to her in poor English. It got everyone's
attention and we all tried to understand what he was asking/how to respond. My mum thinks he was fishing for info on
where we were staying so they could determine how much money we likely had. Anyways, the gas stopped pumping right
before this encounter, and my cousin started calculating the cost based on the liters pumped and the going rate in
pesos, then converting everything to USD. My mom instructed him to do this because she thought she was swindled last
time she stopped for gas and wanted to know the conversion. By the time the encounter was done, he had a total and was
listening in with the rest of us. When the worker started walking back around to the pump, we all looked over and saw
that the reading on the pump had changed. It only showed a total and the amount of liters pumped had disappeared. And
the total was x3 what it was before. We were all just kind of like, "What? No freaking way are they doing this to
us..." There were multiple workers standing around the car at that point. My mom was furious and started arguing
with them, which made us all nervous. She got about half of what they added on knocked off the price, but we still over
paid. We also all noticed that they serviced the cop car that stopped after us before they started servicing us... and
it left before our conflict began. That and all the other stories I heard make me not want to go back... at least to
that part of Mexico. Not that I travel out of the country often anyways.
It's been unseasonably cold here. I think we officially hit 60 once so far this year... maybe twice? I like warm spring
weather, but we don't have an AC in this house yet, so I'm hoping for a cooler summer.
