I cleaned up my room. 💪
It took a lot of work, okay. The exterminator sprayed in May, and while there are random spiders and earwigs lurking about, the ants don’t last long. Dead ants lined the inside of my curtains, my windowsill, and the place where the carpet meets the wall and a six-inch distance into the floor. I vacuumed it all up.
It was gross.
One year after my laptop broke…
I got a new laptop. 😏
Er, I should say it’s a model from last year, but…it’s new to me, and it’s definitely better than not having my own. I can finally get back to fiction writing properly. Writing with my hands and typing on my phone has been bad for my carpal tunnel. 😭
I’m also ~in the zone~ and ready to hop back into all the fun of blogging. 😀 I’m introducing a new category soon and compiling gift guides. I wanted to do the latter last year, but it was hard because I didn’t have much of a way to do them.
I experienced an unknown issue with it already, so I’m hoping resetting it was the last major thing I’d have to do. It’d suck if this had too many issues to function. :/ From what I’ve read, the major issues lie in Windows 10, which is apparently “flawed out of the box” and the “worst Windows OS to date”, according to tech review/expert blogs—but I couldn’t find any Windows 7 version available, or at least an 8.
(I pronounce her “ex-por-shuh”.)
Last year, I intended to bring over old posts from my post archive, so I could delete the database/directory/etc. of posts I’d rather not have. Posts I wanted to keep would be moved to Google Drive or something. Then my laptop broke, and there went that project.
I’m currently in this process, though, and named it “Exportia” because I figured I might as well have some fun with it. 😉 I’ll post more about her once I finish, but—move over, ex-guardians: I’m taking a step up on the stairs to Taking Back My Life—coming soon to a screen near you.
Street photography has its laws, too (especially in Texas). 😲
Dressing for your body type is so overrated; wear what you want. 🙄
I looked up locations to take photos in Dallas and found a list. 😎 YAS. The Japanese Botanical Gardens are my favorite out of everything; I want to go there now. (They do have a photography policy; commercial photography requires a $75 fee.)
The Splines Theory as a spoons metaphor for autism fills in a bunch of gaps I had of understanding myself.❤️
Until next time. 😘
P.S. It’s that time of year again when I invite you all to give me feedback on my site. 🙂 You can also just #AskMeAnything, if you don’t want to do the survey (or if you have more questions and/or want to include your name). 💖
I will upload a better photo of my lappy later; it’s been a busy week, and I’ve plans later today!
