Getting Robbed

I never really thought I had anything worth stealing, until I got robbed. Then I realized that the one thing that is probably most valueable to me is my laptop. That thing held 6 years worth of schoolwork, memories, job application essays, resumes, etc etc. Most unfortunantly for me they chose to rob me on a day during which I was in too big of a rush to password lock the comp. Sucks for me.

I always thought that if my computer were to go down, it'd be because of a virus since I got fed up with anti-virus software constantly shooting those popup telling me to update and decided to just uninstall them all.

I'll not describe it/ put up a pic for fear that the perp will get paranoid and file off all the info. Just wanted to tell you that you are a very bad bad disgusting person, but I'll forgive you if you just drop everything back on my front porch and walk away.

Anyhow, I've learned my lesson from this...Install tracking software.

Goldfish Round II

Well, during spring semester '09 I acquired 5 goldfish from my suitemate. Unfortunately they all died within 24 hours. Now I have a second chance! I shall update as to the status of the fish as time goes by.


I'm not sure if it's because of me, or the curse that a certain male and female placed on it, but it too succumbed to the death within 24 hrs rule. It's strange because it was given the same treatment- and even put in the same container as my brother's fish, and his are still alive and energetic.

It could also just be that everyone gives me the punier fish in comparison. But last time, I had one big healthy fish and it was the first to go...

Although I probably shouldn't say this (all the fish lovers will give me death stares for the fate of the fish is pretty much decided) but I want a Betta Fish @.@. They are sooo gorgeous. I read that they're considered easy to take care of, but then it started to list all the stuff it needs: filter, lights, huge tank, different foods, etc etc. By the end I was thinking to myself, "Well if these fish are easy to take care of, then the goldfish must be self sufficient." O.O

I also saw these yellow 2" x2" fish at Petco that cost $40. Holy cow.
