men and machines

whew! little panic attack. being without the internet makes me ansy, but when my actual computer is broken, i go crazy. everyone else's internet was fine but mine wasn't working.. and my computer kept saying 'tcp/ip connection unable to connect' and none of the forums were helping. but i just restarted my computer a million times and when i came back downstairs to my room, another internet connection magically appeared in my network connections and it worked.

i'm sure it would be been alright eventually but the thought of toting my computer to a computer store downtown [when i don't have a bag/backpack it fits in easily and it's been rainy the last few days] and then to try to communicate my problem tp people who may or may not have spoken much english was overwhelming 5 minutes ago.

other than that, today was easy. chinese, latini's, a long nap and then 3.5 hours of class tonight. in my second class, we could hear chris screaming out QAs in the class beside us, so our class answered back through the wall. we thought it was pretty funny but he said his class just thought we were being weird.

i'm going to just sit and decompress for a bit.

something to think about:
You have a brain tumor. Though there is no discomfort at the moment, this tumor would unquestionably kill you in six months. However, your life can (and will) be saved by an operation, but the incision will leave you significantly less intelligent, less logical, and with a terrible memory. The surgery is in two weeks. How do you spend the next 14 days?

..i think that one would be better if it gave you the choice between living for 6 months after the surgery or just for 2 weeks with a regular mind. otherwise you're just thinking about what you'd like to do before you die. although i guess we would all choose 2 weeks.
