MY LIFE HAS BEEN SO CRAZY LATELY!!!
On Wednesday, ormery
came down to stay with me for a couple of days, and pretty much all of my flatmates, plus one virtualdon
and Squeak went to see the new Harry Potter film. IT WAS SO GOOD I DON'T EVEN. The next one can't come fast enough!! It has to be my favourite so far. God, I love Luna so good, but was really upset they changed Dobby's VA. It bothered me a lot 8( But it was lovely to see it with everyone, and I loved having Squeak around. I missed his lovely face.
THEN my Dad called me to say that he managed to transfer the money he'd brought back with him from Bermuda to my bank account, which meant that I could pretty much buy a Mac whenever I wanted! SO FAST FOWARD TO SATURDAY, I went into Cardiff, and with Donya's help, I purchased a Macbook Pro with Apple Care for three years, and cried at all that money going in one swoop (even with almost £500 off for being a student). But oh my goodness it was so worth it. I have spent pretty much all of today TOUCHING IT GLEEFULLY and admiring how pretty it is and getting used to where the different keys are and new shortcuts (not that it's going to take me long to get the hang of, since I've been using macs for years). And. GOSH. It is so pretty I don't even
. So worth the money. I have named it Cupcake because I am predictable. But now I have very light savings to last me till January. Which should be interesting. I had to open up icon commissions
, but I doubt I'll get any. Would anyone be interested in art commissions for £5/£10? I'm not sure what kind they would be but I need the money :(
ANYWAY today has sort of being a crazy day of fail when it comes to our house. Because it's been so cold lately (about -2 Celsius for the past three days IN THE DAY TIME AND IT SNOWED WHAT THE CRAP) all of our external pipes are frozen. Which caused our washing machine to spit all it's water onto our kitchen floor. So our landlord came around and took off the frozen pipe outside, which means it's spurting water onto our pavement instead of our drain but it's a fix till the weather clears up. AND THEN not an hour later, we notice a huge puddle coming from under our boiler, and one of the pipes is dripping scarily fast. So we call him back and he comes back out and, again, it's because of one of the external pipes had frozen so the boiler condensation pipe got backed up and overflowed.
And then we realised the toaster had given up the will to live.
But anyway other than being cold and slightly damp and toasterless, I have a beautiful laptop, had a lovely week and I'm quite content. It's probably going to change because I have a deadline fast approaching and I have thirty seconds of test animations, a three minute animatic to do as well as a whole bunch of concept art and blog catch up, so the stress is kind of getting to me. SHOULD BE INTERESTING. And once I hand in, I get to go home for the winter holidays. Looking forward to that. BUT TILL THEN, WISH ME LUCK ON MY DEADLINE.
You'd think I'd learn to do my work on time 8|;
EDIT: ALSO ME AND peypea
ARE WATCHING SEASON ONE OF SUPERNATURAL, AND FINN HUDSON'S ACTOR, CORY MONTEITH, IS IN THE WINDIGO EPISODE AND GETS EATEN BY A WINDIGO. AHAHA I NEVER NOTICED BEFORE but it was a funny realization.
