Okay, now this was a good day. A bit of bad news tempered by the amount of stuff that I bloody well got done. (Discworld and Harry Potter have introduced British swearing into my vocabulary. *snicker*) Let's see:
I've been watching some anime lately (well, before my computer conked out). Let's see, I recommend Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (this is my favorite lately; it needs to be subbed faster), 2x2 = Shinobuden, and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. The first is a warm-hearted combination of magical girls and science fiction (no, really), and the other two are just HILARIOUSLY WEIRD. And also I'm about half a dozen episodes behind on Mai-HiME, so I need to catch up on that when I've got a computer again.
Speaking of. Called the HP/Compaq tech support for my poor tablet. The warranty has run out. The estimate: $125. WHYYYYYY So they're sending a box for me to ship it to them in. Bleh. Once they get it they'll call me with an actual quote; hopefully it'll be lower.
But! I won't be without computer all that time. I showed Dad the computer I was thinking of getting, and he put together a higher-end one that he thought would work better for me. (It's got XP Pro, for one, which means I'll be able to use it remotely through my tablet [once I get it back].) So I just need to call him and let him know that's the one I want, and he'll order it for me! I'd call him now, but my phone doesn't get any reception here in the computer lab.
And now, with no segue whatsoever, my schooling situation! For anyone who isn't aware, I attended Michigan State University for two years (fall '02 to spring '04) but got overwhelmed and had to bow out for a year. (I kinda make it sound like that was my choice; it wasn't, really.) Well, I fully intend to return in the fall, so to that end, I've contacted admissions and filled out the readmission form. Wish me luck! ^_^
Well, I think that's it for now. I'm off to attend the first anime club meeting of the semester! Well, it doesn't start until 7, but I'm getting there early to scope out the new room we're in.
