Yesterday, I played music alongside my brothers and Dad. I used to hate doing that. More than a decade ago, it was a tortuous social obligation. Yesterday, with like.... 14 people over for Thanksgiving, I gave up the idea that I needed to perfect what I was doing (I play the piano and they play guitar). I did need them to play songs I was familiar with, but thankfully the set of songs we play ("Old Man, Look at my life," "Rocky Mountain High," "City of New Orleans,") have been a staple of our get-togethers for so long that I didn't have to object to any suggestions. Somebody kept strumming out of sync, though. Not sure who.

I recently came back from the track. There's a rule that on certain days, you need to walk in a certain direction. A couple of teens were walking in the wrong direction (there were about 15 other people on the track). I informed them of the direction we were all supposed to walk in. While I expected them to just ignore me or at least sass me, they actually changed direction.

I hope I didn't come off as snappish or overbearing; I was chiefly concerned about the likelihood of a collision. It is nice to see someone respond with understanding.

I absolutely love it, when I see trucks slow down before puddles so they don't splash anybody on the sidewalk.

You know for as much as i give myself crap for thinking that i was overweight and having eating problems, dental problems and a bunch of other heath problems. A recruiter saying: "You're perfectly healthy" kinda quarrels with that...

I am so glad OneNote 2007 is compatible with Windows 10. Not crazy about how the new OS's tried to be trendy by changing the look to resemble a mobile phone and calling the programs "apps" and changing the control panel "settings," but I'm now able to do just about everything on this new computer that I was able to do on my old one (which was released in 2006 *~* Damn am I outdated or what...)

Turns out i'm one of 4 people that passed the writing fsa, even thought i'm terrible at writing and don't remember finishing it. So either everyone else was even worst or it was a mistake.  >.>

I was feeling like crap all day yesterday, but after venting to my Dad, I felt much better. I used to really be at odds with my Dad. After moving out and trying (and failing) to really strike out on my own, the crap I went through really brought use closer.

PC's been dying for years. Showing its age. Can barely run Fallout: New Vegas at this point. Relied on my family to replace it, they have too much to pay for at present, and this PC will be dead long before they ever get around to replacing it. Then I'd have been forced to settle for far less than what I wanted. So I had to enlist... outside help. That being said, one of my friends (not on this forum, though I wish he were) offered to assist. And I was willing to accept it. So I waited. And waited.

And waited.

And waited, STILL.

And last night...

... he finally came through for me. Sent me the money I needed, and I was able to buy a new PC off eBay. Order was confirmed last night, waiting on them to get back to me on shipping (as in, telling me that the order shipped), and shipping the PC to a friend's house so he can hang onto it until I can go get it. Then came the delightful conversation with mother in telling her that I no longer needed her to get me this new PC, as I had handled the matter myself. No bad news, she took it much better than I thought she would. No getting pissed off, no snap judgments or asinine moves, no screaming. After I explained it all, it was just an indifferent "whatever". Would have thought she'd be happy a friend saved her some money, but hey - not complaining at this point.

So it looks like, when the new PC ships, I'll have a new computer to game and work on to replace this old PC. Don't get me wrong, it's been a good PC, given me a lot of good years. But the PC is showing its age, and I know it doesn't have much life left to it. Better I do this now (or last night, when I placed the order), when I had the opportunity, than risk waiting another year.

Hurray for independent action!
