The weather
A constant state of being.

Even though I was in an air conditioned car most of the time I was out, the heat is still tiring. The fact that I also only got 4 hours of off and on sleep probably didn't help. I can go on 3 or 4 hours of solid sleep, but if its broken up, I have more trouble.

First we went to my mom's work to pick up her check. Then we went to the bank to cash her check and deposit the money that she owed me back into my account. Afterwards we went to Payless so that I could turn in my application {all the others I filled out online} While there, I bought some socks. They're cute; one pair is black with white dots and the other has green and white stripes. They're hecka mucho comfy too.

Once we were done there, we headed over to The Texas Cafe. I got a delicious chicken caesar salad. My sister got a California cob salad and the two of us split shrimp cocktail. My mom got an omelet wtih french toast, hashbrowns and a side of sausage. All in all, it was a decent meal. We played a game of Keno while there; walked away with twice what we put on it {we spent $2, won $4; not a big deal}

After we were full on food we headed up to Target cuz my mom needed to get socks. My sister and I looked around while we were there. I was very tempted to get a few tank tops that looked incredibly comfortable, but since I still don't have a job, I can't afford it right now. My sister wanted to buy a bag since it was on clearance for only $5, but realized that she would probably never use it so she decided against it.

Once we left Target we came home. The only thing that took us way up out of our way was the 25, 30 minute trip to the realiter's office so my mom could pay her rent. There were two minor accidents on the way there. No wonder they call it a suicide lane.

Now I'm home and I'm very tempted to lay down and nap for a couple hours, but that would mean I'd be awake tonight ... again. I need to get out of the habit of staying up till 5, 6, 7 in the morning especially if I'm going to be working during the day. If I get a night job however, it won't be a problem. I'm not really too picky as to what times I work; I just need a job.

I'm out of chocolate again, and I'm almost out of water. I went through a 24 pack of 1/2 liter bottles of water in a matter of only 6 days. Which is normal for me; I usually drink about 2 liters of water a day, if not more.

My icons and task bar on my computer keep disappearing. The window that I have open along with AIM and myspaceIM stay open, but when I go to click on the start menu, the tast bar is gone. I minimize the window I have open and all the icons are gone. The only way I can restart my computer is by ctrl-alt-deleting it and clicking on the shut down option. Its extremely frustrating, especially since its been happening to me 3 or 4 times a day in the last few days. I need to have my computer professionally looked at, but I can't afford it right now. I want it to just fix itself, but I seriously and highly doubt that'll happen.

Alright, I do believe I have made this seemingly pointless entry long enough. I will put you out of your misery of having to read any more by ending it here.

time wasted
Thursday. 8.2.07 10:54 pm
I was awake at 9:30 this morning, but instead of getting up, I dozed back off and ended up not getting up till almost 2. I should have been up and out doing stuff, but I didn't. I wasted it by sleeping and then doing nothing. I'm such a procrastinator.

I did manage to fill out applications today. I will be going out tomorrow, no ifs, ands or buts. Tomorrow is my mom's payday and I'll be going out with her so that I can turn in what I need to and talk to people that I can. My sister will be coming with us; apparently she usually goes with mom on payday. We'll be going out to brunch while we're out. It should be a nice day.

Since I hadn't heard from Charlie, I mustered up courage and sent him a message asking him if he'd be up to hanging out sometime soon. He responded 'I'd love to, but I'm going camping with family... but if you're still up to it, I'll definately call you as soon as I get back... on the 13th.' So I'm half expecting a phone call from him on or around the 13th. I'm really looking forward to seeing him. I wonder if anything will happen ... *cough*

I still talk to Stuart, but its not every night anymore. I still get a little bothered if I don't talk to him, but its not as bad as when I first got out here. I still miss him a lot and there are certain things I can't watch or listen to cuz it triggers certain memories that upset me, but he's not the main thing on my mind anymore.

I started re-rereading Twilight last night. After which I'll be re-rereading New Moon in anticipation for Eclipse. I'm actually excited about Eclipse coming out, moreso than HP7. Its a good series. If you have the opportunity to read it, do so.

Uhm, I don't really have anything else to talk about so I'll write again whenever.

So I finished HP7 around 9 this morning. I was close enough to the end, I fought to keep my eyes open and my vision clear so that I would be able to finish. The book was good. There were some parts where I wasn't particularly drawn to it and I was able to put it down easier, but the last 5 or so chapters had me wanting to turn the page. It was well worth spending the money that I didn't have to get it.

In other news, it actually rained for a bit today. Like, actual rain. It hasn't done that here in, from what I've been told, months. Unfortunately, I was asleep when most of the rain fell and I had to ask my mom whether it had actually happened or if I was just imagining it. If I was more awake, I probably would have gone out and played in it.

A C-5 military transport plane flew above us about 10 minutes ago. Due to the cloud cover it was flying low and the sound eminating off of it made the windows rattle. It freaked the cat out a little. He hissed as we {Jean, mom and I} went past him to see how low the aircraft was flying. He seems to have calmed down; he's no longer jump{ier than usual.}

My mom's b-day is Tuesday. My sister and I need to get together and dicuss strategy for getting out of the house to buy gifts {seeing as how I can't borrow her car just yet, it proves more difficult than it sounds} We also need to discuss what she wants in the way of dinner so that the four of us {Jean, Steve, my sister and me} can plan on how we're going to pay for it.

The applications that I got on Monday are still sitting on my table, not filled out. I need to fill them out today so that tomorrow I can go out and turn them in and possibly schedule interviews. Should be loads of effing fun.

Uhm, I don't really know what else to say right now so I guess I'll write later.

Today I went out and got a handful more applications that I need filled out by Thursday {that's when I'll be able to go back out again} There are a few stores that I went to where the only way to apply is online, so I'll most likely be doing that either tomorrow or Wednesday sometime. The only one that gets me is the "application" that I got at Office Depot. It was not just one or two pages. Its a whole frickin packet. I haven't actually looked at it yet, but I can already tell its going to be loads of fun when the time comes to fill it out ... {note the sarcasm}

Anywho, I'm still working on reading HP7. I'm not deeply into finding out what happens; otherwise I'm sure I would have been done with the book by now. I was more excited about receiving it cuz it meant that I'd have something to do. I'm actually looking more forward to when Eclipse comes out. Then I'll be excited. Most likely after I read Eclipse, I'll read another book by Ted Dekker, called Obsession.

Charlie still hasn't called me. I was really hoping he would by now. Maybe he's just really that busy that he can't call. Or when he's not busy, he doesn't remember. I'm not really sure which one I'm hoping it is.
**And for those who asked, Charlie is a friend that I knew back in Freshman and Sophomore year {moreso in sophomore year} that I had a crush on. He's a year and three weeks younger than me and he went to a different school than me, but I met him through his older brother, who was my drum major {those in band will know that term} I originally had a crush on the older brother, but then I met Charlie and my crush was averted to him. I found him {oddly enough, through his brother} via myspace and I've been talking to him off and on through there. When I got back to Vegas, I let him know and told him to call me whenever. That was a little over a week ago. . . The dreams that I've been having about him aren't really helping me stay patient.

Stuart managed to crawl into my dreams again last night. Its slightly easier going a night or two without talking to him, but not by much. The dreams aren't helping me in this situation either. I have to keep fighting the urge to text him. Half the time I don't even know what to say; I just want to talk to him. I've even thought, a couple times, about calling him, knowing he wouldn't answer just to hear his voice in the voicemail message. But I know that wouldn't make it any easier.

My mom's b-day is in a week. I have really no idea what to get her. My sister and I want to get her a computer, but with me not having a job and a $300 cable bill that I still owe, I'm really lacking money. I'll be lucky if I can get together with Steve & Jean and maybe combine efforts to pay for dinner for her. Other than a few small gifts, that's about all I'll be able to get her. Since a computer for her b-day is pretty much out of the question, maybe we can have the money by Christmas for the computer. One can only hope.

Hmm, it seems that when I do nothing all day, I have more to talk about. Weird. But with that, I'm out of stuff to talk about for now so I'll write more later.

nearly 7 hours {edit}
Monday. 7.30.07 12:23 am
Around 5pm I started up a scan from one of the sites that Ikimashokie suggested I try. It took about 7 hours altogether for it to run a complete scan and to delete the infections. And something tells me that not all of it is gone. . . just a feeling ...

As of right now my computer seems to be working fine. I'm not getting any pop-ups and all my indicators are correct {except maybe the weather indicators, and those are hardly ever correct} Its not freezing up if I click on something too quickly like it was. The biggest thing that seems to be happening right now is that my keyboard is still giving me issues when I type out certain letters. I really need to clean it out.

I finally talked to Stuart after having not talked to him for almost 5 days. He's going through some family issues right now, so I'm going to try and not bug him too often. It was really nice waking up to a text from him, though. I focused my eyes more quickly when I saw that the text was from him.

I'm not quite halfway through HP7, but in the 7 hours I was unable to use the computer {or I was afraid to use it; I didn't want anything to interupt the scan} I managed to get much farther in the book than the last two nights. When I'm reading I have a bad habit of skimming ahead and then going back and reading all the way through. I don't ever skip pages, but I can't always help looking forward onto the next page. Its something I know I should stop, but speed reading and skimming over notes in school kind of put that habit into me. Its a hard one to break.

When I get the money, I'm going to be buying a spyware protection disk thing to install in my computer so that I'll have full and advanced protection, rather than the simplified crap that I have now. I'm not sure when that'll be though, so I'm going to be extremely cautious in everything that I click.

Alright, I don't have anything else to say right now so I'll write more later on. *fingers crossed that my comp stays in check*

{edit} It is now 5am and I've just downloaded a virus/spyware protection thing that AOL provides. Its what my mom has on her computer and its been working out just fine for her. It seems to be working just fine for me, but oddly enough I'm still getting an occasional pop-up. Its really weird, but I don't know what else I can do. My computer is also running a lot smoother than it was yesterday and earlier today. BTW, my keyboard is still annoying me. ... maybe I'm on the computer too much; I'm wearing out the keys ...

my computer is acting really weird...
Sunday. 7.29.07 3:51 am
I have two indicators to let me know that my wireless connetion is connected and what the signal strength is. The signal strength indicator shows an excellent connection and that I'm obviously connected. The other one that simply indicates that I'm connected to the wireless connection is telling me that I'm not connected. In this case, obviously wrong.

When I click on it to bring up the window listing the different connections available on my computer, the wireless connection says "not connected." But when I click on it to enable it, it only gives me the option to disable; which obviously means its connected.

I'm getting pop-ups even when I don't have IE open, but additional pop-ups are being blocked from the ones that are already open. In the case of this happening, I'm thinking that I might have a virus. I'm not sure since I've never had a virus before, but that's the only explaination I can think of at the present moment.

Another thing is that my keys don't always work. I'll be typing up an entry and I'll go to type a word, but only half the letters type. Its almost like the computer is not registering the keys that I'm pushing. It doesn't happen all the time, but more so recently. Now, my computer is only a year old; I should not be having these problems. Actually, I've never had this many problems with my computer, ever. Its getting rather frustrating.

Earlier, I was unable to post a shout because my computer would not let me. I clicked on the "post a shout" button, but nothing happened. I could go to any other page I wanted, but I wasn't able to post a shout. Thus ruining the effect of the shout that would have been posted. I don't even remember what I was going to say. Ugh!

Its 4am right now and I'm wide awake and quite annoyed. I think I'm going to end this here and go read more of HP7. I'll write up an actual entry later in the day.
