My newest computer hard drive is faulty. Let me take a moment and say (quite loudly) : What. The. FUCK?!?! This is now 3 computers in a row that have completely screwed me over.

First computer: faulty hardrive.
Second Computer: Disk drive cover snaps off within 36 hours of owning it.
Third (and quite possibly final PC given my anger/lack of funding for a fourth computer in 3 years) computer: MELTS power cords and also as it turns out, ANOTHER faulty hardrive.

What is this crap?! I do everything I’m supposed to with these computers- every security feature updates, firewalls, virus scans, EVERYTHING, but still they all feel the need to break and utterly piss me off in every concievable way short of bursting into flames. A flaming computer would at least be cool to watch, but no; the computers are going to piss me of in completely mundane but extremely aggravating ways. I can’t take it anymore!

At the moment I’m seriously considering getting a mac for the next computer I own (despite how frequently I tend to make fun of everything apple) just because I can’t afford (cash-wise or mentally) to keep taking this shit from my PCs. Maybe I’m being over-critical and melodramatic, but all I know is that when I buy a computer I expect it to work. Not work for a couple weeks/minutes/seconds then die, just WORK. Gahhhhhh! Needless to say, I probably won’t be online all that much.

Second on my list of things to rant about today is the book called State of Fear by Michael Crichton. Worst. Book. Ever. Never, under any circumstances, would I ever subject someone to this sorry excuse for a story. Despite having the facade of a plot, the few moments of (extremely repetitive and overdone) action are merely intermissions for long, uninterupted lectures given by one of the robotic drones loosely entitled ‘characters’. Let me give you a brief plot summary.

Main character 1: We need to save the world from global warming!
Main character 2: You idiot! Global warming doesn’t exist!
Main character 1: Yes it does because of [insert global warming support here]
Main character 2: Ha! You fool! Let me show you how wrong you are! [insert long lecture type information filled with graphs, scientific terms, definitions of said scientific terms, citations, and everything else you might expect to find in a scientific journal albiet extremely dumbed down for the average reader]
Main character 1 interupting: but-
Main character 2: [Continues scientific rant]

Then the characters go off on a mission to a remote place, 2 of them will fall in a hole, romantic tensions build, they all very narrowly escape dying. Repeat back to step 1 several times, slightly altering the charactert pair-ups each time.

That really is the entire book folks. The characters were wooden and unlikeable, the setting was completely irrelevant, and all in all, the book felt like a thinly veiled high-school level thesis on global warming that was dumbed down for the reading public and had characters drawing the conclusions you were supposed to make.

Somedays I feel like life is screwing with me just to see how I react; like a kid poking a bug with a stick. And I’m the bug. The stick this time around is my exam grades. My midterms grades were mostly Cs with the exception of band. My final exam grades were all As with the exception of English (B) and Band which I was exempt from. Guess which exams I studied for. I’ll give you a hint. It rhymes with shmidterms.

What?! How is it that I walk into my chem exam, laughing about how Im completely going to fail because I dont remember anything and didn’t study at all, and somehow wind up with an A, but freak out about the midterm and study yet end up with a C. It makes no sense!! I’m so confused. I spent my week before finals playing videogames, eating, sleeping, and laughing at people who were studying. Yet I end up with a bunch of As. Life is just messing with me. I know it
