Busy New Year

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Well, I’ve been generally caught by surprise, not a huge surprise but big enough.

In general, I’ve been looking for a job as a result all throughout the new year. Been writing resumes, refreshing what I learnt in school, checking out companies, going for interviews. All this have put my crafty plans on the back seat for a while.

The chinese new year is up coming too, and I may be free-ish for a while after it if I don’t find a job soon enough. Its wierd having my schedule shaken up like that, I need to find time to put some exercise back in lol

I’m kind of glad hello kitty online isn’t up for open beta yet… I won’t have time to play. Actually, I’m starting to suspect I won’t be playing anywhere as voraciously as I did before. This is at least a whole month since the finger-breaking food for friends and I’m still feeling the pain in my fingers!!! Which is like totally… sigh but that’s life. I just hope I can slowly work my way to a nice little house and have cute pink furniture in it without killing my fingers this time round.

Laptop hunting

Friday, January 9th, 2009

I have been thinking of getting a laptop ever since my friend’s laptops started dying. How this works out? Well we all got the exact same model of laptop way back when we entered university. Everyone who used their laptops avidly had it flat out in three years.

Mine hasn’t, and I attribute it to having owned desktops hence my laptop had it easy.

I am still counting down to the day it conks out. I’m not sure. Has anyone made a laptop last more than a decade?

Meanwhile I have been looking out for alternatives.

My specifications?

Easy, in order of importance


1) Light, the lighter the better < 1kg = minimal requirement… dream weight = < 200g)

2) Full keyboard, I need to type!!! No crampy typing for me

3) Browses the internet

4) Plays Hello kitty online

5) Compiles java code, runs apache, php locally

6) Plays videos

7) Runs paintbrush and various oekaki drawing programs

That’s about it really, nothing much to ask for. Still looking at my options while counting down the days to the demise of my long suffering laptop.
