Would you believe the damn thing crashed as soon as I'd posted this journal?
Anyway I've gotten a new computer, but despite a huge hassle that basically left me unable to do anything constructive and with only shitty christmas specials for entertainment, lost all info on my old laptop. Since I had pictures of my dad there, and my backup also went dead, I'll keep trying.
I can also confirm that windows 8 does indeed appear to have been designed by an orangutang of below average intelligence.
All in all, this has been a pain in the ass, but at least I have internet access.
Yep, on top of christmas stress, doing my project, and redoing some labwork for it, my phone not working properly, and having an exam in january, my computer seems to be croaking. It's up right now, but kind of unreliable overall, which is why I dissapeared again, and likely will dissapear again until I get a new one.
Now to not be too much of a grouch:
I pet a skate. It liked having its nose pet especially. It was very cute.
