1Jun   I need to learn not to touch stuff

I really need to learn not to touch stuff once I have fix it. About two and a half weeks ago I finally called about my hard drive making all kinds of noise and running very slow. I had just got the hard drive for Christmas this past December. I call Western Digital, it’s still under warranty. They sent me a new one and I had to send my old one back. I had already backed everything up. I finally got every thing replaced, installed and working.

I start reading about Ubuntu again. I really missed playing with it. I had it installed ages ago. I think even before I had my current computer build. I tied installing it and it totally messed up my new hard drive. It will no longer boot Windows nor Ubuntu from the install.

Currently I backed up all files on a external hard drive and trying to run Window’s Startup Repair in hopes it can fix my hard drive I just got from Western Digital. For some reason it turned my hard drive to a RAW state not a NTFS. Not sure what happen but whatever. I have learned my lesson. I just hope I don’t have to buy a new hard drive and this one will work. Otherwise I might be doing everything from the laptop until I get some extra money.

Right this moment I am saving every dime for next week when my Cammie will be here visiting for a whole week. We haven’t spent a whole week together since 2010. I need time with her more then my hard drive at this moment.


24Apr   Sorry but not sorry

Nothing personal but I truly feel if you have to live off government assistance then most likely you don’t need another kid. If you don’t work, and you have to ask other people for money all the time, you don’t need another kid. If you live at home, because you can’t afford to live anywhere else because you have so many kids, you don’t need another kid. I’m just saying.

When ladies find out they are pregnant and you can’t spell pregnant correctly, don’t post about it. It makes me want to hit you in the face. Also, if you find out and you don’t know who the baby daddy is walk away. I am going to hit you in the face.

I am truly happy for people that are finding out they are pregnant. I have a friend that is buying her own house, married and both of them work. I am super happy for them. But Kyle’s sister pisses me off. She is on and off again with “baby daddy” 90% of the time. She just now started working again. Rents, doesn’t even own her car, is always borrowing money or asking for a hand out. Gets food stamps and K-chip (government medical help since she is a “single mom”) which is bullshit. She isn’t. She lives with her boyfriend. He already has two kids by two different women. She has a son by a different man. I have no reason to be happy about her train wreck. Sorry but not sorry.


16Apr   Very pissed off

“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” –Fight Club, Tyler Durden


26Apr   WHY, WHY. . .because it’s me. . .

Here I am again blogging on Evernote because my blog won’t load. All my other sites load, so I know it’s not my server. It’s an issue on my end. I have done everything I can think of but it’s really starting to get old. We pay extra to have faster internet and half the time it doesn’t work at all or it’s slower then what we would be paying for “regular” speed internet. I am so mad because we pay $49.99 a month. That isn’t cheap.

What is really messed up? I can visit my site with a proxy and it shows fine, I can ping it, shows online. I go to it just in a normal browser, shows Server not found. WTF??? :-((

I guess I will work on another domain. I bought jennifer-cowles.me and got jennifer-cowles.org free with a NameCheap.Com promo going on the month I got married. (November of last year) Oops! I know what I want to do with it. Make it my portfolio, with resume and all. I have all these wonderful ideas but never no time to do it. I have to turn in one more page of homework and do one more test for my SQL class tonight. Then I will be done with it, then take one last test in my Data-Driven Design class Monday. Then this semester is done with. Shit, I have my math final but whatever. I am almost done. There is light at the end of this semester.

reminder: find out how to speed up Firefox or get a new browser like ASAP. I am sick and tired of every time I go to load a page, it freezes and waits about 30 secs or longer depending on it’s own sweet time. Then it un-freezes and decides to work. WTF? WHY? WHY would you do this to me???

/end reminder

I want to upload my #photoadayapril photos and start doing quotes every Tuesday again. Maybe I can get some together tonight.

Also, I am really enjoying using Evernote. I have had it downloaded for months now. Using it for this or that but it works nice for times like these. I can write, it saves the time, entry, title and I can just copy/paste it over. Edit the time in WordPress and move on. I can add tags and all. I am in love all over again. Score one for Jenn.


24Feb   You know what I miss?

I use to be so awesome at this blogging thing and then I started working full time, school full time and a husband. WTF??

I miss the internet. I miss my web sites. . .most of all I miss designing for no reason. I really want to just sit down and code a site from start to finish just because. . . 🙁 This makes me a sad hippo!

Also, it was my grandmother’s 73rd birthday today. I took her out for dinner and we went shopping all day. I really enjoy those days. 🙂 My grandmother is an awesome women. And without her I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I am thankful everyday I have another day with her.

PS: Kyle got me a iPod touch 4th gen (Piggy is it’s name). I do love it! I like it way better than my iPhone, why because I can use it as an iPod not my life line.
