My laptop died that night. Just as I was trying to open it, it gave me a black screen, no boot, and a beeping of death. I almost started crying, as my computer is the only real source of entertainment I have at home. Also, thinking I would have to try and fix it (or pay to have it fixed) scared me.
So long story short, this out of warranty 2011 laptop is not worth fixing. So I just got myself a new laptop !
Since christmas I have been on an old laptop of mine from 2007 that (thank god) worked when I plugged it back in and accepted my internet against its will so I can now at least access internet and do basic work. It seems I might have to adjust to the new Windows 8 interface with the tablet looking working system, but I sure hope it will only be a story of getting used to it. I hope I can get my money worth of this new baby ! Hopefully too, I will be able to ask the computer repair shop close to home to take out my hard drive from the dead laptop so I can access my data and documents back. I hope it will do the trick ! It will be a good occasion to clean the unnecessary stuff out. I'm excited but still a little bummed out that I lost my laptop and needed to shed out a bunch of money for a new one at this time of year.....
I've also been blonde since two weeks, after having royal blue hair for around two months before christmas. I had in mind of keeping the blonde for a while, but it shows too hard to keep up (I already have pretty obvious roots showing, and my hair is severely damaged...) so I am currently wondering what color I should go to, to finally keep it that way.
I currently hesitate between dying my hair a color closest to my natural hair color (ashy pale brown) and let it grow, or go back to black/very very dark brown, but I know this is hard to take off/grow out. It's sad because I actually really enjoyed how this pale color looked on me !
And finally, next week (well, in a few days), I'll go through a major step ! I'm going back to school ..... !
It's making me really nervous, I can't lie. I hope my exhaustion from work will not get in the way of me trying to finish what I started back in 2009. I'm trying to finish classes of my East Asian Studies major ! I'm not too sure if I'll keep going after that to complete a B.A. or if I will just be satisfied with my major finally being over with, but I will see this closer to next year when I am over with the two classes I have to do. I will be going to school part time in the evenings (this semester one class a week) because I doubt I would be able to deal with more, after 40 hours of full time work. I hope it will go well !
I'm trying my best to start the year on a good note, even though the holiday season has been rough on me. I'm currently a little sick, but it will soon be back on track after this week-end I think. I even cheered myself up this week with an absolutely compulsive buy of a dream dress of mine I have been looking for forever, found for quite a low price on Lacemarket ! It's this gorgeous Moi-même-moitié onepiece <3
(picture isn't mine. Source here !)
I hope the arms are a little forgiving, but apart from that, I think it will be lovely, with the chiffon tiers of the skirt <3 I kept seeing this dress on auction or resale websites in black with white lace on the bust, so I'm glad I could find it in black now. I can never get enough of Moitie ~
PS : I posted my wardrobe on EGL Community for January's theme ! Check it out !
Well, I hope everyone had some great first weeks of 2015 !
