July 2010 can go fuck itself in the ass. Please be better to my family and I, August.
Gah, I'm annoyed that life just isn't moving fast enough for me. I've been trying (sort of) to get a new job for a few weeks now, and pretty much the only thing that is standing in my way is a finished resume. I pretty much just have to get a few more corrections smoothed out and then hand it over to my contact. It's just that when I get home from the boring job I'm in now, I don't really want to do anything. The only thing really standing in my way is myself; I realize this...
And then today, my car decides to just crap out on me while I'm on the way to said boring job. It turned right back on, but it was just a nerve-racking experience for me.
I also thought getting a computer without a disc drive wouldn't really be an issue, but here lately, I've really been wishing I had one. I realize you can buy an external one that just hooks into a USB port, but alas, I do not feel like spending the dollarinos on that yet. Must...Get...GFX...Program...On...New...Computer! I really have been wanting to play around with my Microsoft Digital Image Pro 9. Its an old program, but I still love it!
I remember this AA signature... I remember it well.
My laptop crapped out 3 weeks ago, a faulty inverter. I cant play SC2, all my music is there and it doesnt have a VGA output so I cant even go full econ-mode with an external monitor. On the flipside, I finally got some new job offers but they depend on people other than myself and this is almost never a good thing.
I can really empathise with this. I'm learning to drive, but I'm really struggling with the theoretical bit. When I get home from work, I really don't have the energy to start learning driving stuff, then I get frustrated when I feel like I'm not getting anywhere. I can't just pack it in learning it either because my grandma spent money on the lessons.It's just that when I get home from the boring job I'm in now, I don't really want to do anything. The only thing really standing in my way is myself; I realize this...
I've also injured my left hand/wrist somehow and I think it might have been yesterday when I was carrying a heavy box for some heavily pregnant lady at work.
Red Ring of Death. Irritation is mine. Onwards, to 360 # 3.
Alexia, I'm having driving problems as well, so I know how you feel. My mom taught three others before me with no help, but she's suggesting a driving school for me...I know she's not meaning for it to, but it's really weighing on my self-esteem, as I already think I can't do it. >< I just can't stay in my lane/not wobble.
Gonna send it off to repair (on warranty <3) sometime later this week, probably right after I grab an Xbox 360 S (I was thinking of only really grabbing a 250gb HDD one of these days, but now I can just as well grab a new one while I'm at it.)
Mine was, much to my pleasure, just still covered by the extended warranty for the Red Ring of Death. As long as they don't try and make me pay for the damaged disc drive as well (refuses to always eject, but it works fine...) then it's all gravy.
Still, I am annoyed as all hell. I was just finishing up Fable: The Lost Chapters on it with Fable: Game of the Year Edition in the post and had just dropped a fair sum on all of the DLC for Mass Effect 2 and everything but the Stone Warden and Warden's Keep for Dragon Age. Or, in otherwords, bought £50 of games I can't play now.
Ah well. I've been meaning to do the Silent Hill series since picking up Origins finally...now I can.
Hope for them to just fix your current box! If I remember correctly, the lockdowns on original Xbox titles' save data and DLC is horribly restricted.
Also, after a day of 256 color gaming and a night of rest... *blammo* my 360's back to normal. Dunno if I should hope for this to be a one time deal only or not. It has two months to go on the warranty, I want a new 250gb HDD, and I kinda want an S to go with my evt. Kinect purchase (many USB ports!111!!1!)
Yeah. I must admit, I am vaguely terrified that I'll be screwed out of an X-box somehow. No idea what I'll do if they come up with some reason why I have to pay for this one/they refuse to fix it. Don't really have the spare cash to replace the box again and if the repairs are too much I won't be able to do that either...
And yes, a killing rampage will ensue if I find out I can't finish Fable. I was just getting the last soul needed to open the Bronze Gates and go make Jack of Blades my bitch again. Whenever I teleported over to Nostro's area, the game crashed. Then it just crashed. Then it red ringed. I believe I at that point yelled KUNTA KINITE in loud and irritated fashion, since I was playing Fable to calm down during a stressful day.
If he had a brain, he'd be dangerous.
I hate racoons, but I don't run out of my house with Prosac and then beat them with a bat. I cannot believe they had the nerve to say they were doing the community a favor. I have next to no compassion for humanity...If they really want to do society a favor, they should kill each other. People like that clearly do not need to be straining Earth's resources and passing on their idiot DNA.
VIVA LA FOXIES!
Driving really is a confidence thing; most of my friends got their licenses in their early teens, but I actually got mine in my early twenties. I just didn't really like driving because I didn't feel comfortable doing it. People kept telling me that the more I did it, the more I would feel comfortable, but in all truth that really wasn't the case for me. I did a fair amount of practicing in my teen years, but I just did not feel comfortable with it. It's just one of those things that everyone comes to at different points in their lives, but can seem very frustrating when you know it is easy and everyone else around you can do it. In life, you've got to move at YOUR pace.
So its 3:44PM and so much shit has happened already and I've only been up for 4 hours. I'm now single. She didn't even give me a fucking reason why she broke up with me. I woke up with a massive head ache. I'm not feeling good in my stomach and I'm so fucking sick of my friend calling me asking me to come over just to "chill". I don't want to fucking drive out 30 minutes just to fucking sit around and what you play Skate 3 and laugh about dumb shit and talk about cars all fucking night.
I'm done with people. I really am. I'm done with peoples bullshit, I've been dealt nothing but shit this past year and I don't expect it to change any time soon.
Moaning customers. So I'm busy, I phone a customer to ask if they'd like an engineer out, and she complains to me for 30 minutes saying they've phoned up 6 times about the same thing over the course of 2 years and nothing's ever been done. So I spend another 15 minutes sorting it. I phone them back (at the end of my shift) just to let them know it's all been sorted. They spend another 15 minutes trying to chat to me and thanking me, saying I'm "the most sensible person they've ever spoken to in British Gas". I like helping customers, but not when it makes me 20 minutes late from work
That sucks you had that overtime and/or was late due to work.
Although, I have to say - I wish our problems with the phone company would finally be resolved.
They broke the phone line, we can't even do emergency calls on our landline most of the time and had to get new mobiles as the area is mostly a mobile black-spot. The internet connection just... sucks, awful. Majority of the time it's slower than dial-up and they still say "The problem is in your house, our service stops at the footpath" when we paid for a technician who came out and said the line needed to be replaced from the exchange point and was clearly damaged by someone who screwed up when checking the lines.
The company refuses to admit the fault, and also constantly log the reports incorrectly.
Pretty much, we've been paying for a service we never really had properly.
On top of that, our stupid neighbors keep going through our mail, returning it to the post office on purpose. Total wankers, their kid also likes to constantly harass my dogs and is always sitting around the front watching our house.
I just wish they'd go away, considering the amount of people bludging off on the dole so they can then buy land, houses and all sorts of crap instead of having to pay the ridiculous rent and the like that is the usual shitty pricing here!
Customer service in Australia is non-existant and I have to say with the previous main provider being Telstra and having the Government deal... it takes a lot to be WORSE than Telstra (they would actually send out technicians), the Government selection for the upcoming election is crap as well... Would much rather pay the fine for not voting than vote for either parties to lead the country.
Broke my hand Right as Starcraft 2 was coming out too ;(
Protip: Don't punch a wall when you are angry. They sometimes have studs behind them.

Silly Dot. That's not an issue so long as you only punch brick walls.
...guess who came off worse when I tried that as a kid. Sandstone, on the other hand, crumbles most satisfyingly. And it was the other hand too, with my right one so messed up.
