As if we didn’t already have to deal with a previous snowstorm a couple weeks ago (and two different ice storms) we got hit hard again yesterday throughout the day and into the early morning. So for the fourth time I’ve had to cancel plans and call it a night due to crappy weather. I don’t mind snow, it’s pretty to look at, but when I’ve got about 9″ of snow to clear off of my car, shovel around my car, AND various other parts outside (garage area, front walkway, back walkway and patio), then I hate it.
Aside from bitching about snow I managed to finish up my first semester back to college, and managed to do decent. I could have done better, but I’ll just try to be satisfied with what I’ve got under my plate right now. I’m still rather iffy on whether or not I’m going to register for classes next week, but we’ll see. Once school was done, I pretty much had a lot of free time and despite the fact that I made a to-do list, nothing on it was completed at all. Save for actually creating a new design for my website.
Tomorrow I’ll be spending a few hours backing up files from a laptop HDD and onto a new Seagate FreeAgent external HDD. Once I’ve got that done I get to go through the fantastic process of reformatting it with Windows XP, and quite possibly tossing on Open Suse if I feel like partitioning it. Geekiness aside, that’s really I’ve got planned this week, and hell for the rest of this month, excluding New Year’s Eve.
The 2nd week of January I’m going to be making a trip out to Kansas to go out and see my boyfriend Travis. If you’re wondering how the hell I know someone in Kansas while I live in Chicago, you can assume correctly. I ended up meeting him online (though if you really want to get technical, Halo 3!) and instantly hit it off, and what do you know, decided to start dating. I’ll probably be flying out on the 7th or 8th depending on what the airfare is between the two dates (because one or the other can make a huge difference in price) and staying there for a week or more. Regardless of how we met, I couldn’t really care what other people thought of it. I’ve donee it several times for relationships, friendships, you name it. It’s gone well, and I don’t see this being any different–especially when Travis is almost like my coveted soul mate.
And on that note, time to go start backing up the HDD.
