I haven’t completely decided what I’m going to go with. This time last year, I was pretty amped about my Chester Arthur:
And then I realize why I’m single.
So, a lot of people are critical of Apple products and how expensive they are. ”If I want a top of the line computer, I could get a PC for $500.” I got my laptop before I’d even heard of wireless N routers. Later, I got a PC. My mac can use the wireless N router signal, and my PC can’t (without buying an extra adapter). Talk as much crap as you want to about Macs, but at the end of the day, my mac will work better longer and with fewer extra costs than your PC will.
I’m a Mac, and Mac>PC
I probably need to pay more attention when browsing the internet because I’m just finding out about this (though I think I’ve seen the posters before).
What are your thoughts on these?
The newest way to get botted is to have a couple random “people” like a post (I put people because it could very well be robots or people controlling the accounts). They have different profile pics (100% of what I’ve seen are female), but when you go to their tumblr to see if they’re a real person, they have adds on their page. They’ll have a bunch of random pics and stuff reblogged that may or may not appeal to your tastes. I’ve had a couple accounts hacked on different sites since these accounts have started liking my posts, so I don’t think browsing them is totally harmless. However, my virus scanner did come up empty so I can’t be sure if it’s bad timing or if these accounts have anything to do with my accounts that were hacked. What a way to ruin the tumblr experience!
So, my life is cluttered with personal stuff I don’t want to post here. So, no grand updates or stories outside of what happened today.
Church was awesome. We’re going through 1 Corinthians which happens to be one of my favorite new testament books. Lots of good stuff in there including the chapter about love (13). I could tell from how much Aaron (the lead pastor of Trader’s Point Christian Church) pulled out of verse 2 alone this would be a good series. It’s called “Cow Tipping” and it has to do with the “scared cows” Christians set up (that is to say, the things that make Christians close minded/judgmental and separatist). Part of the reason I’m so excited for this series is because it’s a series that will destroy comfort zones. I fully plan to download the podcasts and listen to them later.
After church, I talked to a few friends about some of their personal stuff and got interrupted to clean some sweepers out. Resumed conversations, mostly. I don’t know that I’ve been very helpful, but I’m trying, listening, and supporting. I’m kinda going through some of my own stuff right now too, so that sort of distraction doesn’t help.
After the conversations were over, I decided it would be nice to spend some time in the park enjoying the nice weather and writing. It was fantastic. I wrote 4 whole pages in 5 1/2 hours (this is a large manuscript book). Lots of people went by with animals and friends. There was a wedding and reception going on a little ways away. There was a fellow with these skates designed like skis and he had the poles to go with it. He wiped out going around the corner the first two time he passed by (it wasn’t the funny youtube type of wipe out so I didn’t laugh in case you were curious).
After writing, I went to my work meeting. Got bad news: I have to wear a tie and I can only be 5 minutes late. Ladies can wear solid color t-shirts, but I have to wear a tie (fair? I think not). Also, everybody is going to struggle with the 5 minute late thing. I can’t think of anybody that isn’t consistently at least 5 minutes late. Everybody has good days, but c’mon now; it wasn’t unheard of for our old boss used to be 20-30 minutes late. We have had our issues, but we get it taken care of like nobody else. It’ll be an interesting adjustment for sure.
After work, I had a nice talk with a co-worker/friend. I just feel stressed and confused and sad. I had a bunch of stuff typed out explaining why, but that’s not why I posted this update so I’m not going to share it publicly. Ask privately if you really want to know, but I hate talking about it because people are so judgmental about it. I spent an hour or two talking to a friend who thinks I’m in the wrong for choosing the direction I want my life to go rather than letting my parents choose that for me. I don’t even agree for a second; I just throw my hands up and say “I can’t win.”
Sorry to leave this on a depressing note. That’s just where I’m at right now. Can you know that everybody’s wrong about something and be right or does the majority always know best?
I’m very slowly making a rule book. I started about a week ago, and I’m up to 3 rules. It’s challenging to create rules that line up with rule #1:
Rule #1- Don’t make a rule worth breaking: a rule worth breaking is not a rule worth having.
I think I have a natural tendency to break rules. That is making this process a much more slow and deliberate process. Making rules I won’t break (won’t want or need to) is a challenge, but it’s worthwhile. I don’t have a stopping point set up yet, so someday I might make it up to rule 46 or whatever. Ciao.
