School is Out

The last day of my last class for the year, God and World, was yesterday. The last few days were a rush to finish my final assignments. Between computer troubles and a lot of chaos at home, I hadn't kept up on my work as I should have. My paper certainly was not as good as it could have been, but I can live with that. I'm happy to have a week and a half off before I start up again with two classes, Middle Eastern Literature and International Relations II.

The Captain is Back

All right, for my two or three (one?) regular readers, the Captain is back from his extended tour of duty and should be posting more regularly around here.

Blame the Computer

So it's been quite sparse here lately. Much of that is the fault of my computer. It became harder and harder to keep it running. I wanted to wait until I got my tax return next year, but it got to the point that waiting any longer was not really feasible. I have to do homework and such on here and and I have to have my computer fully operational.

So, I splurged and got another one now. Like my previous one, it is an HP. It came preloaded with Vista and I'm not sure what to think of it so far. It sure looks nice, but is clunky in some areas, such as user level security. It asked me five times while I was installing iTunes if I was sure it was okay for the program to run. I finally figured out how to turn that pain in the ass off.

Anyway, I'm back in business. I do have a ten page paper that I need to do (start!) which is due by the end of the week. After that I have a break for a few weeks and should be posting more regularly then.
