Compensating for deliveries.

Girl of the Day

Iwasa Mayuko

Is Mayuko-chan what all JGirls look like under their kimono? I guess if they ever lost their kimono, they’d at least be able to walk away with their modesty somewhat intact…

So, my parents hired a delivery driver. It’s just as well, I never really enjoyed delivering all that much. I like driving, sure, but not as much as delivering made me do.

So, since I lost that extra source of pocket change, I decided to do what I’ve always hated doing – fix computers on the side. Ugh, I hate it. I hate it, hate it, hate it!!! LET THE HATE FLOW!!! However, it pays good when I can get work, and it’s not all that frequent. So, in a way, I’ll actually be making less than I did when I was delivering. I mean, in order for me to even compensate for the amount I made on deliveries, I’d have to work on two computers per week for an hour each. Yeah, good luck. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get into the whole networking and wi-fi thing. Lots of people want to do that but don’t know how to or where to begin.

So, why the sudden change? Well, I want to be able to pay off my bills faster, for one thing. That way, I can finally leave this place when Esmond goes off to University, and I’ll be somewhat debt-free. At the same time, I need new things. I’m looking at replacing my craptop with this – the Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2, fully loaded. I’m gonna need a lot of pennies to get that, so I’ll be saving like mad to get it. Of course, the link I provided only displays the stock price. My customized price is $5200, with 2 GB of RAM, 100 GB HDD, an extra Li-Ion battery, and a port replicator. Boo-yah! We’re talking blogging, script coding, video editing, music producing, fiction writing, and manga penciling on the go!

Okay, it’s a bit much for what I need, especially since I don’t do that much gaming, but it’s good to have a standard reference. I figure I’m gonna save up about $5000 and then look around again for the ultimate laptop workstation. If it can do gaming, then it’ll be just a perk.

Well, off to grab some supper and then back to fixing these broken machines.

Current Music: Mudvayne – Happy?

I will be once I get an awesome laptop. Hehehe.

Anyway, I dunno why, but this song is in my head. I don’t even have the CD. I must have heard Eugene playing it a few times or something.

The one with all the Lesson Reviews.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog ever since I started using Hummingbird last fall. So, I decided to try an idea of mine called Lesson Reviews. Essentially, it’s more of a “what I learned from X anime” than a review, but the thing is, there will be good and […]
