The Weekly Update: 7/3/16

-_- Do you see that face? That is my face right now. Can you guess why? Can anybody guess why? MY LAPTOP IS STILL BROKEN. Three times. THREE TIMES I sent it in already, and it's still doing the exact same thing. And I say with complete honesty that I do not see how it could be anything I did since I didn't even get the chance to use it the other times, and this time all I've used it for is a bit...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/26/16

Well, this hasn't quite been my best week. I got rid of headache problems I had a year or two ago and have since only taken Tylenol a handful of times, but this week I had to take it twice :-/ One of the times was because I tried a different air filter for my AC, and that turned out to be a huge mistake. I have screwy sinuses, and it dried out the air too much or something, and my whole face and...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/19/16

Did you all know that Facebook has safety checks now?! There was a shooting in Orlando, and I know a few people who live there, so I went to FB to try and make sure they were all ok, and FB made that really easy. Right in my notifications, there was a "safety check." Basically, it was a page created specifically for the shooting event, and there was a list of all my FB in the area who had marked...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/12/16

I didn't do anything particularly exciting last week. I did watch the U.S. Secret Classic (a national gymnastics meet) on the NBC Sports website since I didn't get to see it on TV, so that made me happy. I've also still been drinking the kombucha I mentioned last week, but it doesn't seem to be giving me the energy boost I thought it was. I guess it was a fluke :-/ But other than that, it's been...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/5/16

Guess what! Guess what! My laptop is back and it works! Actually, this is kinda funny, it works because it actually isn't my laptop. Mine had some faded spots from where my wrists rubbed when I used the keyboard, and this one does not... I'm 99% sure my laptop was just beyond fixing and they sent me a refurbished one. It's the same make and model though, so as long as it works how it's supposed...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/29/16

This is going to be a sad commentary on my dependency on technology, but my internet and cable went down for a few hours the other night, and I had nothing to do because even the book I was reading was borrowed online, and all I could think about was how I couldn't even post a status update to tell everyone that my internet was down. And then I thought about how I was going to have to start a...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/22/16

Would you believe I have no news this week? My life has just been same old, same old. The laptop has been shipped off for repair for the third time. The weather has been nicely hot, though a bit stormy, which sucks for grocery shopping. I'm all caught up on my shows. Oh, I am dealing with Best Buy and a rather large refund I never received, and I'm starting to get worried, but someone is working...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/15/16

MY LAPTOP IS STILL BROKEN. I just... *sigh* How hard is it, really, to CHECK that the computer is working before sending it back? I mean, the second I took it out of the box, it was already turning itself on and off like it's been doing since the first time I sent it in. Literally, before I even had the chance to hit the power button myself, which means it had to have been doing that since they...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/8/16

I really didn't have a very exciting week. That's not a bad thing, it just doesn't give me a whole lot to talk about. My laptop came back, but it was still acting weird when I first turned it on, so I need to kind of test it out a bit more to see if it's actually working :-/ Some better news is that I've finally started catching up on the few shows I watch that I had fallen behind on (i.e....
 

The Weekly Update: 5/1/16

So I've been really stressed and tired and a little out of it lately, but I actually had a pretty good week both on and off the blog. And the comments I've gotten this week on the discussion post have been off the chain! (I've never used that phrase before, seemed like fun to give it a try. How'd I do?) Seriously though, I love when discussion posts turn into actual discussion. You guys are the...
