It is quite difficult to post things to your blog when your interwebs and computer decide that instead of failing on the same day, they will take turns failing…for days on end…just to mock your existence. There is nothing more terrifying than opening up your computer, and getting nothing but a black screen….screw the blue screen of death. But there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and barring a train running me over, I should be able to get my life up and going again. Starting with this project….
So I have the remaining letters to be posted. I managed to MacGyver my computer for now but I am due for a new one. I just have to save up money, baby this computer, and pray that it doesn’t completely fail me. I miss the days when I didn’t have a computer, and even though I am almost 25 and have grown up in the technology age, I can honestly say I remember a time when my house didn’t have a computer….or access to the interwebs….or 5000 channels with nothing to watch.
I miss those days. Life seemed complicated, but in retrospect it was actually quite simple. What I wouldn’t give to worry about small things like a vocabulary test, or if Michael was going to ask me out. It was only a few years ago, a little more than a decade, but it all seems like yesterday. It saddens me sometimes.
But I’m writing you this quick letter/note thing, to let you know that I do have letters to post; I just need to get a small part to help maintain the connection with my usb pen thing and my actual usb port. This computer has been with me all over the country, and over the world, so I am hell-bound and determined to make it last. Sentimental values, tears and blood, went into earning this computer, so that is how it will go out….
Dammit I should get an external hard-drive as well. More money to spend. Alas alas alas.
I hope you are all doing well. Again I am sorry for disappearing, the interwebs was out to give me more gray hairs. I will hopefully be able to post some letters tomorrow. I don’t want to overwhelm you with a thousand posts…or well 18 of them. I wrote more letters than I have days, so I’m just going to keep posting them. This challenge kinda failed in a way, but succeeded in ways that I didn’t even imagine. What next challenge do you think I should take up? Please let me know and again I hope this finds you well. I appreciate and adore each and every one of you.
