Yesterday afternoon at about 2:30 pm I went to the Starbuck’s in Terrell and met Bebe, who met my dad in Mesquite. Why, you may ask? My laptop. My. Laptop. MY LAPTOP. My dad fixed it, and now I have it. It works. I do not have manually hold the battery cord into its outlet until my laptop is fully charged. I am really happy, and thankful, that my dad fixed my laptop. He also gave me a dock for it, so if the problem ever reoccurs I can hook it up to the dock and charge it that way.
Now I can get online at school. Whether I will be able to from parking lot I do not know. I am pretty sure it is possible, though, because some people get online from their laptops in the library, and I park in front of the library when I drive my mom’s Explorer to school. So. AWESOME!1
Another plus is that I can be online at my mom’s house and not have to worry about the kids wanting to get on a computer – because I have my own back and working, I will not have to use one of the kids’ computer. It may not seem like much, but think of it this way: I can now actually save and download virtually anything I desire! I also get to use the $50 gift card my dad and Kim gave me for Christmas. It is really exciting. It really is.
I am so used to Internet Explorer. I really missed Google Chrome, but everything just looks so weird right now!
As far as comments go, yesterday evening I came over to my mom’s to house and opened a few tabs:
- Pending Comments for 6birds.net
- Blogs to read (of the people who commented my blog), just a few – about 4
Then I opened Notepad, and had both Google Chrome and Notepad taking up my screen (minus the toolbar at the bottom). It worked out quite well! I definitely think it will help me with comments! Because of this, I won’t be responding to comments “live” anymore; I will be doing what I did last night. It works out better because I can spend my time on the Internet doing other things. Reading blogs and responding to comments takes a lot of time. I really can only get about two to three blogs read and commented within one hour. -.-
Because I have my laptop fixed, I want to spend my time on the Internet2 playing games, having fun, browsing new blogs, editing my site, etc. instead of spending it all on reading my friend’s blogs and returning comments. It’s very time consuming. >.<
I’m pretty sure I failed my College Algebra test today.
I changed my wallpaper from a cute boy to a picture of the sky I took Saturday evening. I’ll post a picture later. 🙂
