Update (OT)

Life has been turned upside down for awhile so I haven't been able to get on here nearly as much as I would like. With the hurricane, getting kicked out of where I was living, having to move in temporarily with my mother until I can find a roommate or a very cheap apartment, having my computer crash on me, and having school on top of that... just been crazy.

Hoping for a new laptop... there's one I like that's really cheap... and I have the money for it...but ... mother still thinks I can get my laptop fixed for less... but this one is better than the laptop I have now, and ... the guy that fixes laptops computers at a reasonable price (and is good at it)... is not back in business yet as his business got flooded by Hurricane Ike.
I like need a computer ASAP. I have a research paper coming up for Music Literature (yay for music major classes... boo for research papers).. and I just don't have enough time to do it at school... with having to take public transportation...which is unreliable at best... the thing i've been taking is called Connect transit, and you have to schedule a week ahead, and they just screw up. I've been riding them a WEEK, and they've fudged up my schedule THREE TIMES. (and they only run MOnday-Friday from 8-4:30)
They're starting a bus route in Texas City...but I'm not IN texas city right now. In San Leon which is out in the boonies... and way too far for a cab. (26 miles round trip.. ugh).

One thing I can say about connect transit is that they're cheap. That's about it. $1 each way....anywhere in Galveston County. $2.50 for Harris County which is where Houston is.

Ugh.

Anyway, hope to have a computer back soon.

My birthday is on Monday, so gifts are welcome. :)... and hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!
