Ooh...  :sado3: I don't know what I would do without my laptop. Luckily, there haven't been any accidents with mine and it has resisted quite well until now. But it is starting to show signs of aging...

Oh nooooooo swirly that is absolutely the worst!  :headfirst:
Don't panic over the chapters though since we're not too far behind. But I would totally hate for that to happen to me.

Caro my laptop is too. I'm already suspecting I need to move all my stuff into the extra hd for backup.

I will have to do that too, even if it's going to take some time. I would hate losing my data if my laptop broke down.

Yesterday, I went out with friends. I had some poutine for the first time. It was probably the first time since I arrived in Ontario that I was genuinely glad to be here and not somewhere else.

Ha! After having had to go through the hottest day of the year with a broken AC, it was finally replaced today. It's not even 20C outside. I'm freezing.  :umm:

Yesterday my nephew was grounded for a week because he bought me a drink to repay for the two drinks I bought him. I was so confused because I took my sister's family, nephew included, to dinner the night before. I did not receive a thank you from her husband. Anyway last night my nephew explained to me in private that his dad was upset that during one dinner my nephew brought me water to drink without my asking. As you can see, it's kind of illogical and  weird that a kid should be punished for being nice to his aunt just because his dad is jealous. I'm going to move out on my own next year. I took them in to live with me because this guy was out of a job, but now that he's working, he was secretly discussing moving. It hurts my feelings that he told me he considered me his real sister, but behind my back he's telling his son that I'm not family so he shouldn't treat me better than his own dad. :poutpout:

Ooh, if I could hug you, I would :headbite:
I understand what you're feeling. But moving out on your own if you can afford it is probably a good solution. Even within a family, there are tensions when people live together, no matter how much they love each other, and the fact that your sister's husband is not related to you by blood probably doesn't help.
It's probably going to be weird at first to live on your own after having been surrounded by other people for several years, but it has its advantages.

Hmm, otherwise, I just wanted to share a small insignificant fact that I find nonetheless rather annoying: milk (and by extension dairy products) is so expensive in Canada! In France, 1L of milk doesn't cost more than $1. In Canada, the average price is $3. At first, I thought it was a joke. :electrified:
(And sadly, I drink milk every day).

I've lived on my own before actually. I moved out when I was 22. It's not a problem as I do have a bit of savings left behind. The only thing is its so hard finding an affordable place that will accept cats, and on top of that I have two!

Milk is about the same here in California so the annoyance is completely mutual.

I finally have a working Canadian cell phone. Hallelujah! :yesss:
I almost fainted when I saw my phone bill for last month. And I had been severely restraining myself.

Glad you finally have access to a phone. On the other hand, I will be without one until I can afford to pay it again. So short on cash lately, it's starting to feel like when I was in college.  :uhh:

Haa, unfortunately, I absolutely need a cellphone. I seriously wondered if I could do without one and the answer was no. I need to be able to communicate with my classmates easily. It's hard enough to be the only one not to have access to data on my phone... But I really could have done without the extra expense.  :wahhh: I'm trying to save some money to rent a car and visit some of the parks of Ontario during my October holiday. It's something I really want to do but it won't be cheap. I'm sure it will be worth it though.  :ohh:

Otherwise, this weekend, I had the chance to have a working internet connection and was able to have a long conversation over Skype with my family but yesterday evening, nada. It's so annoying. On the bright side of things, it allowed me to finish cleaning the first chapter of Futagashira.

Oh, and my mother told me she planned to send me a package for my birthday, on October 8th. She got me curious when she told me she had found a book she was sure I would like. I wonder what it is...  :whatwhat:

Best thing that happened to me today: After weeks of trying and bugging the residence staff about it, I was finally able to open my mailbox.  :kekeke:
It turns out that I just hadn't pushed the key far enough in the lock.

Our mailbox has a lock but we never received a key for it, so it's perpetually unlocked.. Which is just as well because I always seem to struggle with keys and doors and handles! I fear I would find myself in a similar situation to you, Mine!

Our postal service now sends email notifications when packages are sent to us, and today it informed me I have a package on the way! I get a liiiittle too excited about waiting for mail, it feels just like Christmas!  :cheesy:

I have my own tale if woe to add to the laptop disasters.. My laptop's battery kicked the bucket last Friday, so now I'm restricted to my phone for web access and editing is on hold until previously mentioned package arrives! I'm a horrendously slow typer on my phone, so I fear I've regressed to snail's pace with the interwebs!  :wahhh:

 :ohh:
Just a caveat I'm probably going to start posting here regularly, just so no one gets knocked over with the shock of a sudden stranger inserting themself into here. Could it be, I'm the first non-staff(ish) member to post in this forum?? hoho

This is kind of embarrassing, but I periodically get compulsive about virtual pet sites. Today I spent at least 4 hours on subeta restocking like a zombie, when I have a lot on my plate for school, waiting for me... The guilt of knowing that and still having splurged all my time anyway, is supreme. Also until now my sister had only looked at me in derision for this inane hobby of mine, but today she got drawn into it after watching me and started matching my zombie-like countenance, going click click  click click....

 :huh:

It's ironic but it's also really sad, like, she shouldn't get sucked into it. orz Yeah, so that's been the worst part of my day. The highlight of my day was my dinner date with my sis, which involved us yammering off at each other endlessly about everything. Sometimes we get excessively effusive in our conversations.

Kusa, don't worry. I totally get the excessively effusive conversations bit with the sis. I just came home from a sushi date with mine. The waitresses pretended not to notice us being totally stupid together, and the waiters kept looking at me periodically because I was cracking up so hard. Best thing that happened to me today, but probably the worst for the waiters and waitresses.  :wahaha:

My cat's gone missing, and I know it's just a cat but he's old and having to QC the story in Himawari where the cat went missing only makes me panic more.
