I just replaced my eleven year old desktop for a shiny new laptop! What sort of shit should I compact my laptop with? Should I get photoshop or gimp for all my shenanigans (tell me why)? OMG I GET TO USE PHOTOSHOP AND IT WONT CRASH MY COMPUTER! MIND BLOWING!
I bought a Inspiron 15R, it is lite and I am still worried to carry it around anywhere.
I have finished all of my obligations today. While I could possibly do more, I don't feel like it. Maybe I need motivation or maybe I should just relax the rest of today. What are things you do to get yourself motivated? What are things you do without leaving your house that help you relax?
My sister wants me to go on a weekend trip with her to San Francisco. My mom is in the process of dealing with some major health issues that may require hospital stays and or multiple doctor visits, etc.
Would it be bad if I went away Friday-Sunday?
The trip is in June so I just don't know what the situation is going to be then.
I currently work as a substitute teacher while I look for a job in my field. Last year, I worked as a nanny to fill in a gap of time over the summer. It paid very well but it's still a nanny job. The mom asked me if I'd be interested in working with the family again this summer. I said yes, but it makes me sad that this means I'll have to put off my job search until August. For what it's worth, on a per-day basis, nannying pays roughly double what substituting does. What would you do, take the summer nanny job or keep applying?
for my teaching creative writing class, i'm doing a lesson on natural conversation/dialogue. i've already got a short story picked out to use as an example, but does anyone have any suggestions of plays that have really good back-and-forth dialogue?
I'm looking for cheap cable services in Rhode Island. But the usual cable service provider COX, Verizon are too expensive for only one tv. Satellite TV is not an option since the building does not allow satellite tv. My grandmother does not require HD nor DVR. Any suggestions?
Contacts lenses wearers: Is it ok to buy contacts and then only wear them once in a while? I've worn glasses most of my life, never worn contacts before. I can't wear contacts at my job- I work in a chemical lab, nasty things can happen- but I would love to be able to wear them on weekends or going out. Is this possible? Or is the adjustment period between glasses and contacts whenever you switch too harsh for this sort of thing?
Should I go to my 3 hour seminar tomorrow? I haven't read the book properly, I would be spending that time working on more important work, I only have one seminar left after this (ever). ETA: There are rumours circulating that if you are between degree classifications, they may take your attendance into consideration. My attendance up until now has been pretty good.
