I’m back from camp! … and still in one piece. Yay.
I wasn’t expecting much from the camp, and wasn’t looking forward to it but it turns out to be one of the best experiences in my life.. and it was so friggin fun. If I can do it over, I definitely would… I am so glad I went. Even better because my good friends were there too, so I wasn’t all alone like a retard like how I always am at camps that I’ve been to. I didn’t do the physical stuff due to my health condition but I did the others that didn’t require physical stuff. The trainers were awesome too, even though strict lol.
I’ll write about it later today (it’s gonna be hella long — 3 days worth of stuff to blog about) if I’m done resizing pictures, after I’m done blogging about the art showcase thing..need to resize those pictures first too. I’ll do them later.. I’m not tired anymore but my legs are sore, and my throat hurts so much and I’ve lost my voice… probably from screaming too loud at camp. I think I have tonsillitis again, urgh.. but as long I don’t get a high fever and a chain of unpleasant sickness that lasts a week, I’m fine with it.
Gonna play my DS Lite now.. I MISS IT!
I had 2 very long days, extremely exhausting and tiring. I wanted to blog about them and post pictures but I’ve been too tired.. also, I’m still in the process of downloading and reinstalling programs that I used to have so I can’t resize pictures and stuff.
So anyways, tomorrow I”ll be gone to camp for 3 days. I’m kinda not looking forward to it, yet I wanna go cuz I wanna get away from my life here at the moment. My uncle came today so he’ll be sending me to college and picking me up. I have to be at college tomorrow by 8.30 am. Bleh. I won’t be bringing my DS Lite so it’s gonna be boooring. I won’t be doing physical activities either. So Skyler, YOU ARE SO GOING so we can be losers together
I doubt I”m gonna have a good time but wtf. Oh well. Be back in 3 days.
When I get back today I’ll reply to old comments, and write new blog. I was too tired to do so last night. I had a very long day which I’m gonna blog later tonight, hopefully.
I reformatted my lappy back to the factory setting! Lost about 80GB stuff.. but I’ve backed up most important files though so it’s okay. I tried backing up to D using the Acer e-recovery and it took 18 hours but got stuck at 97%..bleh. Now my C: drive is clean and my laptop is back to the way it originally was after being shipped out of the factory. You know what..? When it arrived at the computer store in Ipoh, of course the technicians would install important softwares right? So they installed Adobe CS2 stuff.. I wanted Adobe CS3 version.. then they said CS3 couldn’t be installed on Vista so that’s why they installed CS2.. I went back, tried to install it and they were right.. I couldn’t. However I tried today right after I reformatted it, but it worked O.o So they were lying! I had to tweak the registry which probably the cause for the control panel and network and share centre to crash. Ah, but it’s all good now.. I don’t have crappy softwares anymore or junks. I love Acer e-recovery thing. But gonna be a pain in the ass to install some important applications back again.
My control panel and Network and Sharing Center are working again, and not crashing! Finally…after almost a year…
I have to remember to go buy Adobe CS4 stuff. I’m gonna go rest now cuz I have another long day today. Good day.
I got my laptop back!
That was fast. It was fixed within 24 hours. I got the call yesterday evening (but only heard it through voicemail last night). Even though it’s just replacing DVD-rom and that’s it, but still it’s fast. I remember this comp (my main comp) took 2 1/2 months just to replace the fucking graphic card that’s still under warranty. However they didn’t fix my Control Panel and Network folders which crashes everytime I try to open it, so I’ve burned the factory default setting disc and driver and application disc and currently doing the whole system backup image and then I’m gonna reformat the C drive, going back to the factory default setting.
I just realized something……..why the hell did I torture myself being without a dvd drive for roughly 5 months plus when I could’ve gotten it fixed within 24 hours? Man I’m such a fucking idiot…. Oh maybe because the stupid people in Ipoh where I bought the laptop at told me it’ll take 2 weeks… blah.
Getting the laptop was a fucking pain in the arse though! I was too lazy to go in the morning, and when we finally left, it was 4 pm – BAD IDEA! Obviously KL city would become the mother of all traffic jam hell. It wasn’t THAT bad though and managed to get to Times Square in about half an hour after being stuck in the jam. I hate Imbi road which is unfortunately connected to Star Hill road, the main traffic jam hell area. Then we went to eat first, then we went to pick up my laptop. Argh. You know what? They only have 2 guys to handle the customer, and get this.. there was roughly 5-10 customers.. not many right? But imagine each one of them takes at least 20-30 minutes to explain what’s happening to their laptop/monitor etc, then for the acer people to open up the system and checks etc… argh. I had to wait for so long just to pick up my laptop, and I didn’t bring my Nintendo DS argh. They should’ve opened more counters. Then mom and I went to Cold Storage.. lots of chocolates for christmas… too expensive though cuz they’re all imported
The journey back was the most painful. Extreme traffic jam.. and I was way too sleepy, I even drove OVER a divider/road partition cuz I couldn’t see, wtf. Took us like over an hour to reach home, bleh. Then had to go through ‘people jam’, as there were like more than 20-30 people trying to squeeze in for the 2 elevators which can only hold 11 people each. Arrrrrrrrrgh how come this apartment is overloaded with IMMIGRANTS arghhhhhhhhhhhh. Go back to your own country damn it. You have absolutely no idea how many of them here and how they behave until you see it yourself, then you’ll be pulling your hair in uber frustration like I am.
I’m going to go to college today to watch the performance rehearsal thingy for the showcase or something cuz I don’t have anything else better to do. Tomorrow is the showcase. Oh and Monday, I will go to SEGi’s Leadership Camp for 3 days 2 nights. Didn’t wanna join but they said it’s included in the fees so might as well make use of it… plus I wanna go so I can take a break from my life here… sorta like a short vacation thing since I can’t afford to go anywhere else. Not bringing any Nintendo DS, MP3 players or anything like that though.. I’m scared they will be lost.. I’ll try to take pictures though.
After I’m back from camp, I’ll be going back to Ipoh.
Ok, going to play with my Nintendo DS now, let my laptop backup the system and later go to college.
Yesterday I was bored and sleepy so to avoid falling asleep during the day again and fuck my sleeping pattern, I decided to watch 2 movies.
28 DAYS LATER
Surprisingly enough, I haven’t watched this movie. It was on cable lots of times before, but I just turned it on, and didn’t watch it. So yesterday I decided to watch it. I’m more into kicking zombies ass action movies but this movie wasn’t bad.. not much of the infected and after they all got to the military base area, it was slow and started to get boring. However, great to see Christopher Eccleston in it! My fave 9th ‘doctor’ after David Tennant XD
Then after watching 28 days later, I decided to watch COLLEGE, just because Drake Bell is in it (he’s hot ‘mmmkay?) It’s a typical college movie… 3 losers want to change themselves, have fun, get drunk and get laid decided to spend the weekend at a college as ‘potential freshmen’ but they decided to stay at the frat house instead and as usual, frat boys are arseholes, right? So the losers get bullied and all…
Weird to see Drake in a college-type movie with nudity, booze and foul language cuz he was a Nickelodeon star so he has that Nick’s good teenage boy look.. you know, like Disney kid.. good kid type of image.. but then again, who am I to question? Jamie Lynn Spears was the star in Nick, and she got herself knocked up and with a baby at 17. Lol. Horny slut. Just like her big sister.
But anyways, the movie turned out okay. Typical and still watchable unlike other lame college movie with bad toilet humor. Now I’m gonna watch ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES!… which is so lame and shit but I’m gonna watch it anyway.
