I feel as though it's time to make another "old" folder in my bookmarks and drag 90% of my stuff in there.
It's weird to think about. I have an "old" folder in there now that's mostly marked old because it was from a computer transfer. But it does kind of represent a different time in my life. And I think I'm at another turning point. Now that I think about it, you actually can map out my life by computer changes.
Well, if you go way back the first computer I remember laying claim to was the one I shared with my mom and sister. All I really remember about it was that it had 4GB of hard drive space and was probably half full. hee. Funny, especially since I now carry around a 16GB drive on a keychain (which is new, by the way! Compliments of my lovely boss. It's meant for work-related purposes, but it's not like they're doing random inspections on the thing. It's a Kingston drive so I thought it was fitting to give him a royal name. And it's 16GB, thus, his name is Louis XVI. heheheh. ANYWAY). Then I got Mildred at the beginning of my fannishness, he (yes he) had the TV capture card so that was what I used for screencapping. That was probably 6th grade to maybe sophomore year. (Another aside. Did anyone else get really nostalgic and happy during the second-to-last ep of Lie To Me when Kelli showed up with straight hair? LINDSAY! heeeeeeeeeee.) Anyway. That took me through the first round of fannishness, The Practice, X-Files, and ER. Then I got another one, who never got named, which brought me through the rest of highschool, West Wing and Gilmore Girls. Then I got Julio, the laptop, and had that through college. If we're going by TV, that would be BSG and Lost. And now that I'm out of college and working I have my lovely Dmitri. Really, it matches up pretty well with my phases. I don't know which is cause and which is effect.
So anyway, I'm thinking of reorganizing my bookmarks. lol.
I feel like updating this thing more and more lately. I guess that's a reflection of my mental state-- when I do and don't want to talk about myself. I'm pretty content right now, despite the building I'm sitting in. After Spring Break, which is this coming up week, I'm getting serious about the apartment hunt and getting a car. It gets scarier the more I think about it, but I just need to take the leap. I am so ready, I just have to convince myself of that.
I'm listening to the Matt Pond PA free EP right now and it's really good. The three instrumentals are loooooooovely.
My dad is all offended because I don't want to go to Vegas with him and my mom. I don't know how to explain to them that hanging out with them is no longer cool. I guess I just thought it was something that doesn't need to be said! I tried "you and I don't have the same idea of 'fun'" but I don't think he translated that as I intended, which was, "if I'm going to Vegas I refuse to be sober past 11pm, and you are an old man". I also came this close to saying that I would have a bajillion times more fun if they went on vacation and I stayed here without them ;) In any case, I think I can hide behind not having any vacation days, because going for a weekend is dumb.
Speaking of vacation, I am going to see Denise next week! Yay for actually having spring break plans! This is the least lame I have been in quite a while.
I also got the Glasvegas CD just now. I have been surrounded by British accents today (Scottish, whatever). We had like a four hour meeting with this Apple dude this morning who was English, then I watched Bones with the English grad student, then I watched two episodes of Lie to Me, and now I'm listening to Glasvegas. It is really kind of difficult to not start talking in an accent, LOL.
I'm going to get some new shirts tomorrow for the trip because most of mine are now too big. WHAT UP.
One last note before I go: If the Sharks have back to back losses to Phoenix and LA to lose the President's Trophy, I will cry and cry. SO DON'T DO THAT OKAY BOYS? sheesh.
