I've finally gotten the results I wanted, yay! :D (After almost 4 years of struggling, lol!) I can't believe it: I upped my workload, and, for the first time, worked during semester, yet received the best results ever. If only I had the determination right from the start of my first year, haha!

My computer, however, decided to break down again. :( I'm trying not to spend money on fixing it again (I'm afraid I won't be able to pay my tuition loan when I graduate and the interests would start rolling), since the experts don't seem to know what's wrong with it anyway (I've sent it for repairs about 3 times already and the computer would run properly for maybe a dozen times more =_=). I reformatted my computer and it ran perfectly for a few times before problems surfaced. This time, besides the occasional refusal to boot up (no keyboard lights and stuff, only the sound of fans turning), the computer would suddenly hang with a neon coloured screen. Nope, blue screen of death is too boring for it. I have gotten bright pink once and cyan twice now. O_O

I'm so close to finishing CS already. I would really hate to drag it on until my next holiday. PLEASE OH PLEASE, DEAR OLD COMPUTER. You're only 4 years old, not that old yet! ':(

Guess what? I was having a fine day for once (almost 3 hours of usage without the computer tripping) and I actually knocked the PC (very lightly) when I shifted my chair. The screen turned a dark red this time round. >_>

Sigh, I don't know. I only have TS2 and Photoshop installed on that computer now. Along with all the other supporting software (screenhunter, clean installer, scriptorium...) those should be fine, right? :( I backed my game up all the time, just in case.

Oh dear. *pats* At least you're not graduating solely based on that! :) (what does "well tanked" mean? :P)

Hmm... actually, if the problem is that you moved the computer, it's probably a hardware thing. Probably something along the way with the graphics card or something like that. Did you check all the cords and stuff? If it's not that, my guess is that one of your wires or chips somewhere in the computer is shifting.

I think all of those should be fine, scriptorium (if you have the lighting package,) could be straining your graphics card a little during the game, but since it sounds like a computer issue and not a game issue...

Yeah. I'm hoping that C+ will get buried. I've certainly earned enough A's in Spanish that it should be able to find somewhere to hide.

Tanked: Destroyed, killed, dead, hopeless, in my case specifically rocketing towards the bottom of the grading scale. :(

Yea, I do think it's a hardware problem. (which is expensive if I/experts cannot point out the correct problem and wanna do trial and error >_>) Taking out the RAM and putting it back used to help, but not anymore.

Hmm... you may be right about the graphics card, actually. Come to think of it, my game boots up relatively fast after I cleared half my cc away, but lags REALLY bad during the gameplay itself (there were many times when I thought it hanged; that's how long it took to respond). I'm not given the option to change my FPS, though. :X

Haha, I got a C+ before too, actually. I'm guessing (*crossing fingers!*) it's not too obvious, seeing how I got a whole lot of Bs and quite a handful of As. :P

It's never hopeless! At least you haven't failed something and had to retake it! ;) At least you weren't on academic probation! At least you weren't expelled! (and the list goes on and on! XD)

Cheers to a great year ahead! :D


This is my LJ for personal stuff. Friend this if you are, well, a friend of mine. :D

However, since this is a community and can't be used to friend other LJs, I'll be friending you back with collidingwithme. Complicated, eh? :P
