One more week of putting up with my current job! It shall be a happy day and I will go out to eat to celebrate :)
In other news, my wonderful portable external HD
does not work any more :( When I plug it by usb, I hear the disk spin and it'll click 5 times but then kaput. Nothing. Nada. Since it was my external, I backed up a lot of stuff, including all of documents, photos, and media because it wouldn't have fit on my laptop's internal drive... in any case, I've ordered another drive
and will use that to back up my now defunct drive with a SATA/ etc+ cable
to get the data off of it and transfer the files over. I'm hoping this will work... I don't really want to think of what I'm going to have to go through with replacing all the data I've lost, in particular the documents I have/had.
And aside from my caring more than I should about non-physical bytes of data, a friend of mine has been going through some personal issues. Not much I can do but lend an ear, though there are times I really want to throttle said person for their actions. I mean, really?
Another friend of mine has some trouble moving since she had lived some others and they left an... unneccessary amount shit behind. She herself has an inordinate amount of shit as well, but she's been handling that and that's okay. She didn't fob it off to someone to take care of (unless you count me and some others who helped her move since she has no car, but I digress). When I was helping her clean up the rest of her apartment, it was more along the lines of handling the heavier things because she really has no upper body strength... and I'm not sure she has much lower body strength either... anyway, so as I was throwing stuff away (there was a lot, it made me sad because it was useful stuff too), there were about three tall floor lamps. So naturally the thing to do when I was throwing them away was to launch them into the giant trash bin like a lance.
They were awesome throws. EPIC. I think I got a lot of air getting those lamps in there. And I think that was pretty much the highlight of helping her.
