Boo. No more gigs. I have no idea how I did it...ok, that's not true...damn you iTunes! When I hooked up my qiniq, I decided to go with the middle package - the one with 5 gigabytes for $120. I had no idea how much I regularly used, but I figured it was a lot. I got a lot of grief for that. "It's a waste of money. There's no way you would run out of the 2 gig package," they said. 2 gigs? Even with my limited tech ability, it didn't sound very promising to me. Something was off.
Anyway, after posting on Saturday, my computer strained a bit to load a few pages, then abruptly died. It now sits, glued, in the position of 'limited to no connectivity'. Ahh! What do you do when you find yourself computer-less? I know it sounds really sad, but I take heart in the fact that, if you're reading this, you probably have some sort of computer thing going on too. I had to content myself reading a few books...not so bad in the long run, I suppose. I have two more weeks to wait unless I decide to buy a bit more space.
...that brings me to today. Here I am, at work, typing furtively between lesson plans. I don't know why I'm doing in that way - it's after 5pm - but it just seems weird to be out of my office and in the students' lab. Yes, you read correctly. Not only is my computer done at home, but it is currently offline in my office. Now I just have this huge chunk of hardware taking up the space on my desk...a desk designed for a right-hander. As a left-hander, it always pisses me off that the whole monitor and keyboard take up the position where my writing hand should be placed. I end up twisting around to write a note and, well, it just sucks.
I suppose I should head back to my lesson plans...I would like to be home before 7 or 8. I hope you are all well out there in blogger land; I'll see you when I get back...
