Ugh, I swear...I feel like I haven't been on the computer (for fun) in ages...
I've been busy with school, of course. Had some tests that I had to take with that creepy lockdown browser, so I had to do that after work. I also got back into my Raspberry Pi again, and I've been playing a little Final Fantasy VI. <3 I think I'm almost half-way through it? I'm at the point right before it switches to the World of Ruin, whatever that is. The walkthrough I'm following has me running around doing things, because apparently, this is the last chance for a lot of stuff. So, once I finish doing miscellaneous tasks, I'll head into that next dungeon, and things should get interesting. =D
I don't know if I ever talked about my Raspberry Pi before. I know I meant to write a post on it, back when I got it, but I think I ended up forgetting. ^^;; Well, basically, a Raspberry Pi is a teeny, tiny computer. The thing seriously fits in the palm of my hand. And you can run all sorts of stuff on it, really, but my family uses them for video game emulators.( Brief squeeing within. )
Oh, and I got sick. Again. =/ Earlier this week, my tonsils swelled up and I got all congested. Not fun. Honestly, I'm almost more offended than anything. I just was
sick, maybe a month ago? If that? And now, here I am again. Luckily, it's not the same thing, because what I had last time was pretty rough. This isn't as bad as that. It still sucks, though.
So, between being too tired or sick to do more than watch TV, and playing some FFVI, I really haven't gotten on the computer just for fun in a couple of weeks, probably. Although, hell...I haven't read anything in even longer. =( I seriously need to get a better handle on my time management skills. I have work and homework to do, obviously, but sometimes I drag my feet too much on the homework. I get distracted, or whatever, and I end up wasting a lot of time. And it's not even fun time wasting, like taking a break to read or something. No, it's just surfing Facebook and playing stupid games on my phone. Part of the problem is this stupid project that I have to do for my Econ class. I know I need to start on it, because I have no idea how long it'll take to get it done. But it's just a daunting task to start a big paper like that. So, I sit down and intend to work on it...and I end up wasting my time on stupid stuff, instead. And then, if I have free time after work, I'm often too tired to feel like doing anything fun. Hence my being a slug in front of the TV.
Meh. I'm just feeling a little sorry for myself, I guess. It's stupid, but whatever. I just want to read. Or watch some anime. (I just picked up the two Sailor Moon Crystal sets that are out, plus I've still got stuff from Christmas that I haven't had time to watch.) I want to make graphics or read fanfic, or surf the internet for neat stuff 'til the wee hours of the morning. I want my hobbies, damn it. And lately, I just haven't had enough time or energy. I watch TV, which is nice, but it's more a way to lay around and rest, rather than that I'm super excited about what I'm watching. I want to do something because it's fun
. I am having fun playing FFVI, but I'm not really playing that
much. And I'm running around doing miscellaneous stuff right now, not even advancing the story.
...Geez, this post turned out really whiny, didn't it? Oops. >_>
