FINALLY. I've spent the entire day just trying to get my damn computer to turn on. It's basically half-dead and will only turn on when it's in a good mood, but I have no idea what I should be doing to coax it into waking up. I bought a new one, but it hasn't shipped to me yet. I ordered it from Costco who ordered it from HP who spent a week sitting around twiddling their thumbs as far as I can tell.

Anyway, I'm back at school now, and that kind of makes the no-reliable-computer thing a lot worse, because I think that being in an unfamiliar place is a lot more comfortable if you have something (like an internet connection, for example) that lets you at least pretend you're somewhere familiar. So instead I spent the entire night watching Avatar with my Xbox, which is basically the same thing only with fewer distractions.

I'm living in the same dorm I was in last year, but I'm on the floor above, which makes the experience a little bit surreal.* Earlier today, I very nearly fell down the stairs because I forgot that there were more of them around the corner. And everything's mostly the same but just a tiny bit different: the girls' bathrooms are on the opposite end of the hall, and they have the same layout as the bathrooms on the floor below, but the walls are a slightly different color. It almost feels like living here last year was a dream that just barely strayed away from reality, and now I'm half-awake and disoriented. The effect is unfortunately emphasized by the pounding headache that refuses to leave me alone.

But all of that is moot because I HAVE A SINGLE THIS YEAR. A SINGLE ROOM. WHICH I SHARE WITH NOBODY. ALL TO MYSELF. THERE IS NO ONE TO JUDGE ME FOR SINGING ALONG WITH DISNEY SONGS (except for my neighbors, of course, but they are out of sight and therefore out of mind).

* I was going to say "trippy" instead of "surreal," but I couldn't bear to make that awful pun with the next sentence.
Current Mood: tiredtired, but happy

Glad to see you back on LJ - is your headache gone?
