Sorry for not posting in a while. This week and the one before have been extremely busy, and this past weekend I didn't feel like doing much of anything at all. There has also been a lack of extremely interesting events... just nose-to-the-grind-stone (what does that really even mean?) school stuff.
One exciting thing did happen though, and it is actually very exciting to me: I got a new computer! I had been in the market, as it were, since last summer, since I've been wanting something more powerful for encoding (and possibly with a discreet graphics processing unit that would let me play games other than Age of Empires... but that was secondary).
This spring I started to consider it even more seriously, looking at a MacBook Pro as the obvious upgrade to what I had at the time. All the forums I looked at though said that the next major upgrade was probably just around the corner, and I decided it would be wise to wait for it.
Thunderbolt Macbook." This sounds really cool, but the problem with really new technology is that there is nothing to use it with yet, so for the only thing I can really do with it is talk about it....
So I finally have a new computer, and almost as a good omen, I found out just after buying it that Rome: Total War Gold Edition, possibly my favorite strategy game ever, was just redone to run on Macintosh... so in the end, that was what I did last weekend (along with some homework, naturally).
I'm right now in the midst of at least the 2nd, craziest week of the semester so far. I had a fairly major presentation today in Intro to Lit. Tomorrow I have a test in Spanish 2, a major paper on Hamlet due Thursday, and a take home math test which is due next Monday, and another video project for Triangle, which is complicated by the fact that Thursday morning at 5am I will be in Washington DC at an IJM convention and not getting back till late Sunday night. So I'm not really sure when I'll do all of it, and feel like it may have been a mistake even writing this post when I could have been sleeping or studying... but then, I've spent most of the last 16 hours doing those things (only about two of those hours were sleeping) so I guess it's okay....
Hopefully DC will be fun. Will def. try to post from there.
