Last night at my family's Thanksgiving dinner, I just happened to mention to my parents and sister that my laptop had shit all over itself and that there was nothing that I could do. Well, there were things that I could do, like take it to a shop, but it wouldn't make a lot of sense to spend that much money to repair an eight year old laptop. Also, I'm not that savvy with computers. After dinner, my sister wanted to go to Best Buy to get our dad a camera and herself a new laptop. And there it was, a giant stack of Toshiba laptops for $300. She told me to grab one and we went on our merry way!
The point of that story is that, my sister is awesome. She got me a new phone several months ago, because it was a shattered pile of glass and couldn't hold a charge. Now she got me a laptop, because there was no way for me to personally fix it without spending a pretty penny. Thanks, sister!
In other news, I am unemployed again. Apparently two employees can get into a fist fight on work property and another employee can harass another one until they had to change their phone number, but writing "whore" on a whore's bag, that someone had left at work and she took because she liked it, is completely unacceptable. But that's another story that I'll get into once I have it properly written to my liking. It's okay, she may still be employed there, but I have a mother who can comfort me when I'm down. Oh, did I mention that she's proud of me for following my dream of being a police officer? Yeah. Chicago Police testing is next month, two days before my birthday. That weekend is going to be pretty much amazing.
So, new phone. New laptop. Awesome sister. Terrific parents. Oh, my brother is awesome, too, but he just wasn't home this holiday. wah. Hopefully I'll get back into drawing and whatever the hell else it is I do, because my art supplies are feeling quite neglected. Oh, right, and since my original Facebook account had been deleted, I have to make a new one for the zipgun parade. I'll get right on that as soon as I have some new art to display.

I'll be using everything else except Facebook, because they don't like it when other people are named Rick Moranis... Or something. Anyway, they can fuck themselves to hell. Maybe I'll consider making a new one, but until then, I'll be on the barren wasteland that is Google+ and maybe bring back AOL instant messenger.

I backed up all music, photos and documents I think are necessary and now we play the waiting game. Weak.
Right now, I'm attempting to do something creative. So far I just doodled a bunch of awful faces and such and took a picture of a few of my art supplies.
It's so artsy. I know.

I'm now starting the grueling process of backing up all of my files. All music had already been downloaded to google music, so that alone will save me eight days. The pictures will take fucking ages... :/
I figured that while my computer is on the fritz, I may as well start using my phone to update. Since Swype is a pain in my balls, updates might not be that long, so I'll try to post a photo or something of interest. Even then, I'm not sure if I even have an audience to entertain. Weak.

This is my beloved laptop. I've had it since my senior year of high school and it has every photo I've taken, every paper I've written, and countless music files and random images I've gathered from my internet browsings. I have no idea what happened, but not only had it been falling apart over the past few years, it's on its last limb. It's not the best laptop in the world, but it's the only thing that I've been able to call mine in the past few years and it's almost gone. :(

Oh, I'm not sure what the point of this is, but I've also been uploading my drawings to pinterest. I have no idea why, nor do I have any idea what kind of purpose that would serve, but they're going to go there as well. I guess it'll put my drawings out there to a different kind of audience? You know, instead of my equally awkward friends, it'll go out to weird soccer moms that post pictures of cakes and those someecards to keep in touch with their hip, young selves. Right now, I'm just uploading a few of the better old ones. I feel that if I post the sketches of random shit, I'll scare people off.
I also need to update the Facebook page. Damn, I sure do suck a lot for someone who is always on some form of social networking site/has their damn phone glued to their hand. I need a hobby. Oh, wait. This is my hobby. Right. Sorry. I'm tired.
