The past few days have been pretty cool.

Hollie finally met Aymon and they get along great. Wicked cool. We went shopping on Friday at Granet Run and had a fun time buying new wardrobes and looking badass like that.

Saturday was chaotic. Aymon forgot a bunch of his stuff in the car, so we were going to meet him up at the X Games. However, we did not realise that they would be long over by 9, when we showed up. This caused a few problems. We could not call Aymon's cell due to some weird stuff going on in the area. Since we couldn't call Ay and we didn't see anyone around, we went back home. When we hopped onto the shuttle for 69th street, we finally got through and found out the dumb blonde was there and didn't have money to get home. So, we drove out and picked him up. Good times, still.

Today I finally fixed Hollie's computer. It's much faster now, even though it's running Windows 2000 instead of Windows 98. The only problem we ran into is that Windows 2000 does not support her sound card. Bah!

Tomorrow, I think I'm going to do some basic junk with my computer I've been putting off. Namely, installing a floppy drive, reinstalling the mobo so I can stick the back plate on, installing the graphics card, and installing a CD-ROM to complement my CD-RW.

I'm really behind on my reading. I don't know why I keep on buying books when I have more left to read. I have two overdue library books that I've been meaning to read and two huge books sitting on my shelf, yet I bought two more yesterday. I suck. :-p

Although it seems as though I've been keeping busy, I'm a bit bored. It seems like I'm constantly running from point A to point B to point C without getting a chance to accomplish anything at any of those points. If that makes any sense. It probably doesn't.

I'm looking forward to returning to school. Perhaps it's because I've fooled myself into thinking that I'll accomplish more in school? That's probably not going to happen. Let's review my list of just things related to my major that I have ment to do yet have not yet:
  • Get a Linux distro working on this computer
  • Learn...
    • Flash
    • C/WinAPI
    • Visual Basic
    • Perl

Hrmph. And where exactly did my summer go? I know I put it somewhere around here. I remember specifically planning to complete all of the above, read many-a-book, hack the planet, and hang out with people who I either had not seen in forever or whom I never got around to hanging out with before for previous reasons.

This shouldn't be taken as whining or anything like that. It's just that I feel like I've been rather unproductive lately and that annoys me a bit.

I think almost no one finishes his/her list of things to do. (Except people whose lists were empty at the start.) Another LJ entry (two later than yours on my friends page) laments the same thing. And I know I didn't accomplish most of my summer goals. (For one thing, I also wanted to teach myself Visual Basic. Heh.)

Perhaps no one does.. but I thought I was better than everyone else. ;) Nah, but it would've been nice to knock SOMETHING off of that list, if not the entire thing, ya know?

Good times...

Ok, first of all, men don't suck unless they are bi/gay...and second, you have been productive, just not with the original goals. And third, you're getting that stuff done on your computer tonight while I clean your room for you (double score). I'm gonna tell Meg that Tues. is off so that we can both get reading done. So it's not totally lose-lose! And, hey, you and Alex and the gang have had some pretty hot times this summer. The summer may be practically over, but things won't be that bad when school gets here...hell, even I'll be happier going to school everyday:) So shoulders back, head held high, turn up the radio and end this summer on a happy note! Wuv ya, *muah*!
