Boy has it been a while! I still haven't gotten around to learning CSS. X:
Anyways. So I got a Blackberry Storm. Yeah. Can't wait for them to actually make programs for it. That will be interesting. So anyways, how is everyone? Good New Years? Good break? So my grandma passed away. I'm still waiting on news on when the memorial is, and whether or not I will be broke during said period of time. I just haven't had the time to shop for a proper shirt and tie, and pants. I'm not buying a blazer though. No need for a full suit. And after I get back from the memorial, I'm going to get a second job, so I can start living again and enjoy having money to save/spend. Should be rather easy to get a job too. Since Mardi Gras is right around the corner. Not to mention that is the start of the season of money for people in the service industry here. Oh check this. So yesterday I was standing on a 9 foot ladder and it decided to collapse out underneath me. So I fell 9 feet. And got right back up to.
Oh man, I've been trying to make plans. Perhaps rent a car or something and venture to Alabama to visit my dad. Possibly stop off and hang out with some another person(s). Haven't yet decided.
So I try and stay cost efficient and I have not bought shoes in over a year, so I thought I was well over due. And I got a new messenger bag for $9.99 oh and the shoes for $24.99.
And I totally snapped a wicked pic of my shoes and desaturated it and then tweaked the contrast. Sha. Sha.
Even made myself a spiffy new banner from it. Though it just needs a bit more tweaking, but this is the jist of it.
Thought I'd give namfox a try in this thing. See how it works out. I've had a pretty stress-free day and came home and passed out after spending $76 on necessities. Let's just say I'm balanced with as much of this crap I've been smokin'.
So apparently after my store manager gets back in town we are all having a store meeting because one of the managers with instant-asshole on everyone and everyone started texting him while he was out of town assisting another store. And somehow, I find myself in the middle of it. As if I know exactly what's going on but I don't and this is some pressure cuz I don't even feel like going to that meeting anyways.
Anyways, so I ended up going with Verizon Wireless now that my contract with Helio is up. I also ordered the Blackberry Storm. I don't know what to expect so I may do a full-review blog on it and take pics. I'm sort of curious about all that it can do. Apparently the entire screen is one big button you have to click. So you navigate via touchscreen but execute the command by clicking in the screen. Can't wait to see if that is a win or fail on my phones part. But I am diggin' the fact that it comes pre-installed with an 8gb SD card that can be swapped out with a 16gb SD card. Pretty nifty. Its screen is also apparently better quality than the iPhones, yada yada. I'm not really reading into all the things it can supposedly do better than the iPhone because in all fairness, I actually wanted an iPhone, but someone that took my identity here in New Orleans ran up an account with them in my name and never paid and they wanted an $800 deposit. So I said goodbye to the iPhone. But I do wish to return to the Apple store and buy a macbook sometime. Just to have to help with graphics and animations. This one I have now is just so sad when it comes to running Photoshop, etc. I play Fable on it every so often, but all the graphics are turned way down low and it still runs like poo. It's just not meant for more than typing in notepad and running slow as hell from leaving open firefox all the time. Any who, this tangent has started to get on my nerves, so I'm ending it just around the other word between here and the period.
Okay, so I'm still going with basic html text until I get into the swing of things. Learning CSS and other stuff is now on my to-do list.
So I was sick for the past 2 days and decided to just call in for a third day. Just a day of rest and relaxation that follows cleaning my apt and possibly getting to do laundry. Sniff testing isn't my most fond thing to do before deciding to throw on an outfit.
So I'm an overthinker. Whether it's good or bad, I don't just take one aspect of something, but I run it through my mind again and again to try and get a better understanding of it all. Well the one thing that's been bothering me is that I have this will to just get up and move where ever yet I have this feeling of being tied down to where I am currently living. Almost like an excuse that isn't really there is keeping me from leaving. Blah, enough about that though.
So holiday season. I don't even really feel like hanging out with family. I have the income, but I just don't think the barrage of questions and probing from distant relatives is really going to be a good thing. My dads side of the family has a way of making you feel worthless unless you were a part of something huge or great or monumental. I guess after I did disaster relief for 3 solid months, became homeless after and got back on my feet isn't enough for them. It's like, "Okay, now what do you got?" So unless I join the military and become Rambo or thwart a hijacking of an airplane, I don't really feel the need to sit in a room with people I am constantly justifying myself to. So the holidays? They can be someone elses thrill. Just as Thanksgiving. I already know my family has no real means of holding itself together except for greed and spite. And the same people that wouldn't even lend a hand or offer support when I was living on the streets for the worst half of a year are not ones I feel like I pretend to miss.
So what are some of your holiday wishes? Mine are to just get the rest of 2008 over with as easily as possible.
Okay, so sad thing is that HTML and CSS is greek to me at this point in time, so my blog is going to appear pretty bland. If anyone can link "For Dummies" for me that would be grand. So this is where you all come to be exposed to the mind and works of one of the greats, eh?
