My laptop has decided to freak out on me. It has not lost any files, but it's lost all and any kind of configurations to anything at all. From desktop to firefox extentions. It's annoying the hell out of me. And, if I change anything and restart the computer, it goes back to state 0 again. Like if I had just turned it on for the first time or something. Plus, it's so much slower too. I've run antivir and it doesn't catch anything. I have no idea what's wrong, and neither does anyone else I've called. So. annoying. My aunt thinks I'm gonna need to format it. So I'm trying to do a backup of all my files, which I've done, except for music files. And that part is pretty much gonna take me all night, huh? So. freaking. weird.

I have to write a 8 page paper on anything we have discussed during last semester but I can't seem to be able to get started because (a) I hated the class and (b) because of that, I have pretty close to no idea what the theacher is actually expecting from us. I hate post-grad school so far, and I'm not even completly in yet. Grrr.

So, I kinda have plans to go to Campos do Jordão this weekend and to my home city next week, but I haven't bought tickets to either. Besides, I feel like I shouldn't really go because of this stupid paper anyway. My mom said I should go, though. She says there's no point in staying in driving myself crazy. I don't know.

By the way... I haven't seen anyone complain, so I might as well just ask: am I the only one who's not getting emails when I get comments?

(a) I didn't get out of the building today, just because. I'll have to do it tomorrow, though, because I need to go grocery shopping.

(b) And I need to buy some medicine as well.

(c) I gotta learn to cook healthy stuff asap. The food my mom sent me is almost finished. Bummer.

(d) Also need a way to organize the recipes, otherwise I'm never gonna be able to do something twice. Anyone knows of a web-based way? A cook site or something?

(e) So, the whole confrotation I was expecting today didn't happen at all, and I have no idea if that's okay or if it's gonna turn out to be even worse later. Not up to me anyway.

(f) Last but not least... I need advice. My grandma is in the US is she's gonna bring me a new laptop, and I need to decide on what I want. So I'm thinking either a vaio or a mac, though I'm a bit aprehensive because I've never used a mac before and I keep thinking I'm gonna have some sort of problem, like not being able to open a file or something. I'm still leaning towards the vaio, I think. I don't know. So, suggestions anyone?

(g) I NEED new icons. New colorful icons. I really need to apply myself so I can have time for these things. If I keep post-poning everything I'm never gonna be able to do the stuff I want to.

Oh, God, it's been over a week since my last update. And my last post was a numbered list, so I can't do that again. LOL. I'll just make a week highlights kind of post, I guess.
lj-cut for lengh --- well, it is a week-worth of posts )

Sunday. Today! Finally! Grandma Mary and cousin Jorge came over for lunch. Jorge is thinking about joining me during my two weeks in England and possibily a few weeks in Spain as well. That would be nice. I spent most of the day comparing digital cameras, but I haven't really got a conclusion yet. I mean, I thought I was gonna get something around 7MP, but all online guides say I don't really need more than 5MP. I also thought it would be cheaper to wait to buy it in Europe, but comparing online prices, it seems like it doesn't make that much of a difference anyway, considering Brazilian stores throw in all kinds of extras (memory cards, bateries, recharges, etc) on the deal, and if I buy it now I would be able to play with it before I leave and, more importantly, I would be able to declare it on the imigration, so I wouldn't have to take it out of my quota. *head hurts*
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Pleasantville | weird sickness)
I've got a flu. Because I'm stupid. You see, my throut was hurting. I didn't think that could be the begining of a cold, so I took a flu shot. And then the next day I woke up sick. Great thinking, really.

So I spent the last couple of days pretty much laying on a sofa and watching movies and tv shows. Yeah.

I guess the best thing I did was watching the whole season of Friday Night Lights, which I've been meaning to do for a while but never found the time. Well, all I had these days was time. Though I guess that the fact that I watched the whole season in 2 days is a great testament to the series --- I really was just that hooked.

Now my dad is watching a sports show and I can't be bothered to watch that, so I'm trying to spend a little time doing something else. I'm just not sure how long I'll manage to stay in this chair, though.

I should not have left home today.

I left home at 5:10 to go to the gym. The roads were packed and the traffic was terrible, so I ended up getting there 20 minutes late for class, but I still went in. So I did about 10 minutes of it and BAM, I fell. on the floor. badly. It hurt my feet, and my knee, though I know it could have been way worse. Anyway, everybody stoped and rushed over to me. One of girls I know, went to get some ice and the instructor "examinated" my foot. It was nothing too serious, so he told me to keep the ice on it and go home afterwards.

It doesn't really hurt, only from time to time and just a little. Nothing to worry about, it just upsets me because, well, I was really on a gym kinda of mood, which I never am, and now I won't be able to go at least until wednesday. Bummer.

Other than that, I finally uploaded the last of my pictures to my online gallery, so now I have no more excuses and I will have to dig into wordpress. Though I've been thinking, and maybe all I need to work on is the stylesheet, and that realisation might make my work much easier.

My grandma just got herself an orkut profile. That's just too funny.

Godmother's birthday today. I wish I could have seen her today, but she was busy-busy-busy and did not have time for anybody. It's a bummer, really, 'cause I really do love her. She's like the coolest aunt ever. *love*

Oh well. That gave me the evening to mess around WordPress. I think I got the setting down, tomorrow I'll try to understand the templates so I can actually translate my layout to it. I hope it's not too hard. Actually, I do already think it has got too many features and I really don't need any of that, but I really don't feel like looking for another system and testing it and not liking it and testing yet another one... I'm really not on the mood. So WP will have to do.

I also want to get started on the gallery, because I really do want to upload all of my pictures to it, and that is a lot. Really, I get bored just thinking about it.

Ok, torrents for my monday shows are up. I'm going to bed.

Portuguese-speakers, I need help. I want a cute little domain name in portuguese for my trip. Actually, to host a site with stuff on my trip. It's gonna have a blog, that I'll hopefully update daily, with pictures when possible, but not exclusively. It's also gonna have a link to a trip photo gallery, where I'll obiviously post all pictures I take (which is gonna be great so my mom doesn't drive me crazy like she did when I was in the USA) and more stuff ). So, yeah, I need a name for that. I'd rather something in portuguese, but I'm open for sugestions in other languages as well.

Also, another question: does anyone here still blogs on a personal site outside of livejournal? If you do, what do you use? I'm considering just creating a community and using something like LJMagPie (or something like that), just for the sake of commodity --- I'll already be logged in here and stuff, so it seems like the easier way --- but maybe there's just this new awesome little blog script I don't know about? You tell me.

The internet is back! Yay! Actually, my connection went kaput last wednesday, but it was restored today. Finally.

Let's see... Thiago's move took most of my time. I helped him put stuff on boxes during the week and carry them to his aunt's on Saturday. At 5:30 in the morning. Then I took a little nap in the afternoon and went to a Timabalada concert with Thaise, Rafael, Érika and Rodrigo. Fun, I'm telling you. I jump a wall to leave the house, I won a CD in the car traffic in our way there, we managed to buy the tickets at a cheapper price, a whole bus hit on me and Thaise, and a bunch of guys hit on me during the party. Seriously, I had not have that many guys hit on me in so little time. But my legs and my feet were begging for rest, so I just left early with Érika and Rodrigo.
Sunday was officially the begining of my Astral Hell period. LOL. I can't believe it's already so close to my birthday.

I've been doing stuff and thinking "first time in the year" all day long, so I might as well just say: first post of the year!

My New Years was better than last year's fiasco, but, really, still not that great. Basicaly, my family spent it in my sick grandpa's home. Pretty depressing, if you ask me. Oh well, next year I'm either gonna be in the USA with my little brother or in Europe alone --- but having way more fun than around here. Hey, maybe a couple of my friends will manage to go to Europe too and we can have a kickass celebration.

The night was not all spent in my grandpa's room, though. He and my grandma live at our family's hotel, and there was a party there, so we did go have dinner in there at about 10pm. We went to my grandpa's at around 11:30 so he wouldn't start the new year alone (he is very sick, he can't really get out of bed, he doesn't talk anymore I think he doesn't even understand portuguese anymore and I'm not sure if he still recognizes us). We tryed to watch the fireworks from his window, but the Hotel covered most of it and we could only see the ones that blew up way up high. We went back to the party at 1am, but we left a half-hour later, because, well, no one was in much of a party mood anymore.

So... firsts of the year:
Food: chocolate (baton)
Drink: Pineapple caipirinha
People I saw in 2007: My mom and my brother
Song: I'm not sure. Something by the band that was playing at the Hotel's party. first song I could recognize, though, was Sampa by Caetano Veloso.
Movie: Goodnight, and good luck.
TV Show: 3rd Rock From The Sun
Friend I talked to: Thaise (she was at the party as well)
Clothes: I was wearing a pretty white-blue-pink dress and golden accessories (Thaise took a picture of us, I'll post if I manage to get it.

I spent, like, three months doing pratically nothing, and now I have a lot of work lined up for the next 30 days. Oh joy. Let's list it:
  • Internship Relatory. It's the last thing I have to do and then my internship is done and I just have to wait for my graduation and I'll have my Pychology major. It's already partially done, as we turned in a half-way-through realtory around July/August, so basically, I just have to describe the whole nothing I did for this second semester. Thing is, I want to enter it in this national competion thing, so I have to redo some stuff and I want to write a very good argument about a psychologist's place at a school. And that's probably gonna be a lot of work. This is due in the first second week of December.

  • I have to work out a lot of stuff for my first semester job, including basic stuff like getting a good place, harder stuff like finding a common grounding for the work with the friend that will be working with me, and silly but incredibly important stuff like advertasing the project. All kinds of due dates here, but the advertasing thing needs to be done sometime this week, because the first week we're supposed to be handing out this stuff is the first week of December.

  • And, finally, I just got an email from my boss at the magazine, to let me know I'll be starting the work on the next number this week. He has sent me an article already. Gah. That was supposed to have happened two months ago. I hate how out of schedule this magazine is. If it wasn't such great pay, I would have given up on it. This doesn't have a due date yet. It will depend on when my boss finishes sending me all the articles.

  • All I can say is thank God the TV show is almost done for the year. Only three weeks to go.

    So, my TV season so far...

    download schedule )

    midseason shows )

    TV schedule )

    I still wish some stuff would just get axed soon.

    Thursday will be the night of pity watch. Huh. I'm pretty sure GG is just as annoying as last season. But then again it's their last year, so it's kinda like loyalty watch or something. The OC, on the other hand, I was this close to giving up last year, but I heard the Marissa is dieing rumor and stuck around to see that. Now they got Chris Pratt (Briiiiiggghhhhttttt!!!! I miss Bright!), so it's like they're really forcing me to watch. Besides, it seems like it's their last year as well, so I can hang in there to see the end of it.
