Busy Day Ahead

September 12, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I’m still depressed about my Powerbook but today is Apple’s Showtime event, and if all goes according to plan most likely we will see an update to its machines. I still feel a bit lost, mostly because of last nights post but also because I used to be able to write freely you know, and now I have lost even that gift. I don’t have much energy to do anything anymore and I miss that.

I am saddened by the fact that life stinks, but that is okay hehe we’ll all learn to cope one day. However, I am finding joy seeping into my life from different areas and I like that. I love my Daddy most of all cause come on, he’s the greatest dad anyone can wish for, right? (Dee and Nee and Fee just in case, remain quiet because I am not pushing for anything now, I just love my daddy!) But I enjoy our evening chats and I enjoy mostly how daddy refers to my powerbook as my macaroni :P Simply because right now it can be that.

I have started watching Weeds and I like that TV Show, I can’t wait until tomorrow’s release of tonight’s episode, it’s gotten me addicted to it and I really do recommend you guys downloading and watching it. It’s like Desperate housewives in a different way. I also got a chance to check out “Til Death” a new sitcom starring Brad Garret and I laughed my head off maybe because I needed to but it was cute, I have high hopes though for it.

Shows I will be checking out this fall: Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill, Desperate Housewives, Weeds, Ugly Betty, 30 Rock (I think that’s the one that Tina Feye is in), and I might start watching How I met your mother, as well as Til Death.

I think I might have left something out but I will revise that list later, until then, Adieu!

I Lost Myself

September 11, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Somewhere along the road I lost myself, how I am not quite sure. I just know that I did and I want myself back. It’s very sad that this happened, at one point I was in control of everything around me, of my past, my present, and my future. Currently however I am so lost that I don’t know where I should belong. Many might disagree, but I rather choose to admit that I really AM LOST! I look at the lives of my sisters, well not lives but let’s evaluate by using Sis #4, she’s got great talent at Graphic Designing and therefore from this age, at 15, she knows that she wants to major in that. I however have different talents but I couldn’t pursue those talents in my major in college. Everything happens for a reason right? Well I still haven’t figured out the reason I stumbled in the English major, other than that the fates hated my guts for some strange reason. I remember fondly my last days at High school, particularily the fact that my last exam was an English exam, and I said the following words in a different way really but “Thank God!” and “That’s my last time I am taking English, or writing an English Essay” I was ecstatic, and highly excited. I had applied to a few schools in the States aiming to study Management, simply because I thought I could do well in that major, and I got accepted in Indianna University – Bloomington, but I didn’t get a scholarship from Kuwait. So my other choice to school was Kuwait University.

I am highly fascinated by anything technological, I can learn alot of stuff visually and by hands on experience, I don’t know exactly the terms and such but I do know that with practice makes perfect, and studying from a book was never my way of learning, I prefer hands-on experience. I learned many things that way, I observe, I try, and I retry and succeed. So I thought that I would major into MIS in KU, but sadly I had never thought I would end up there so I didn’t take the Academic tests required, and therefore only college that accepted my “Non-Mathematical/Scientific” High School Diploma was the College of Arts. I took the basic Arabic courses in hope to apply for the tests and get transfered to College of Business Administration but well I scored really high on English test but the Math one, even though I cheated (yes I admit to it, it wasn’t that hard really, even with differently numbered tests, just read the question of the person next to you and watch what they circle but not the letter because only difference is that questions aren’t numbered the same and neither are the choices hehe) Well they wanted a min of 50% on the Maths and I got 45% meaning one question was the deciding factor, since there were only 20 questions and that meant I answered 9 out of 20 correctly. So off to English Lit for the next 4 years.

Jist of this story is? Well although I liked studying English at one point, well it was easy and didn’t ask me to apply myself alot only this occasional moment. I still feel that I have robbed myself of what I would love to do. And that my friends is the reason I am unsure about what I want in the near future. Sad but true.

I need to find myself, if not for my safety then for the safety of the rest of the world. I have talents or so my father and sister tell me, but I cannot bother to apply myself to it, and I am too much of a lazy bum to do so. I want to find me.

In another bit of light news, I was woken up today from a beautiful dream, in which David Beckham wanted to get a matching Tattoo with me and wanted to hide it from Posh hehe, and he was so cute dressed like this, minus the jacket really and without Posh Spice or Victoria. It was sad that I was woken up abruptly because of the fact that, I didn’t know what happened later on hehe.

Cheesy McCheese

September 9, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Something Cheesy is going on, well not really but before I address that I would like to send out congratulations to my dear Uncle who has just become a father for the third time to a lovely baby boy. I am glad that he now has a cool birthday and a cool name, birth date 9/9 and name well, its baby Ali :)

Next order of business, I am still in dire straits and haven’t achieved anything to fix my Powerbook, although I’m giving it a day off today hopefully at least I can see it later on when I try to connect it as a Target HD but anyways I was checking Apple Store and currently Macbooks require 5-7days of shipping when last week it was only 1-2days. Andddd, Macbook Pros are shipping within 24 hours, I think it is safe to say that either both or one of those products will get updated on the 12th, since a similar situation happened with the Mac Mini’s in which they were suddenly not shipping the models fast enough due to the new ones being released. I hope this is true. I really do. And that my friends is what I would call something Cheesy going on.

Now it’s off to nap time for me, I’m a bit exhausted, a tiny bit, but I did speak to Fee this morning and it was cool. Deets on that later. Enjoy this short post. And perhaps I might just stick with two columns, however I’ve got a question to most of you out there, which theme did you enjoy most of all, from those I put up the past few months. Maybe I’ll go back to one with a new header.

Bon Nuit :)

Fingers Falling Off..

September 8, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I replied to all the comments left on the previous posts, from the one that was like my last post from Missouri all the way to the latest one last night written. I am still in my depressed mood, I still can’t get my laptop to work or even back up, I booted it as a Target Disk and well I can’t see it on the iMac, and I don’t know why and it’s ticking me off, but then when I booted the computer normally it gave me the Grey page with the Apple on it and had the roundy thing moving but wouldn’t go past it and I heard voices from the harddisk area but normal voices no loud pronounced clicks, just soft ones and I am still worried, all the pictures of my past trips were there, all my documents, some work documents that I was working on for something were there and it’s so sad.

I bought the Maxtor 300GB External Personal Storage from Jarir last night for 55kd and I have transferred most of my shows on it, cleaning up my desktop and hopefully will do a full backup here and clean it up BIG TIME! Because I don’t want to be put in that situation ever again, I need just to sit and work on the organization of my files and all. Only bright side ever was:

I found Andy.

Andy is my Forever Friends teddy bear a small one that was given to me by my grandmother on my birthday back in the late 90’s probably 98 or before that a bit, my other bear that my uncle gave me back in 92 my aunt has it. She took it away from me :( And I named the bear Andrew or Andy, the tiny one and I loved him so much he had a beautiful sweater which got lost though. Ugh my fingers hurt now.

I’mma stop writing and I am going to just sit in the corner and cry some more. Apple please hear my pleas and update the Macbook with Memorem this Tuesday please please purty please!

P.S. Need insipration for my new theme header. And I’m thinking of going 3 columns instead of only 2.

Too Depressed

September 7, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I’m just too sad and depressed, I don’t care about my spelling or grammar or whatever right now. I tried opening my Powerbook after waiting for a few hours to do so and no longer do I boot in Single User Mode, instead it’s stuck on the Apple page and that’s it. I bought a 300GB Maxtor HD to back up everything so as I do a clean install and all that and no use. I can’t figure out a way to back it up. I am so freakishly depressed! I don’t even feel like putting up a nice front to anyone. Urgh this sucks.

Last weeks update before I forget is as follows:

Not Good

September 7, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Not Good at all, I just woke up and decided to turn on my Powerbook but for a strange reason while trying to open a few programs it like went ballistic on me and hung so I decided to restart it the good old fashioned way, pressing the on button until it shut down then I pressed it again to turn on, I got the Mac screen and all but instead it wouldn’t take me to the OS, I have the 12inch Powerbook G4, anywho all I got was a black screen with localhost:/ root# and I went crazy coz this can’t be happening right now. I am sooo not in the mood for this, all I wanted to do was update my library in Delicious Library to show it to my Aunt. Googled this, and it told me to type in fsck -yf in order to check if the harddisk was fine and right now I am seeing the words “Invalid node structure (4, 29687)” and “Rebuilding” and finally the word “The volume Macintosh HD could not be repaired.” Sweet no?

Apple, please update your Macbook line this Tuesday, I badly need a new Mac :( I’m feeling blue.??

New iMacs With Core 2 Duo

September 6, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I was just checking Apple’s website and apparently they updated the iMacs silently and that was like freakishly cool! No one reported it yet or none that I know of, I check daily and I was checking Gizmodo, Engadget, AppleInsider, MacRumors and none reported even a whisper about this. So this must be really new.

We now have the 24 inch iMac and they all include Core 2 Duo.

The iMac now also experiences a cheaper price range, the 17inch starts at 999$ which is like so awesome! And the additions to the current specs are seen below.

specs.jpg

So I wonder what’s coming up on the 12th of September, already I have a hunch that its the 2nd generation Nanos, Who knows maybe the Macbooks and Macbook Pros as well, since EVERYONE else is updating their laptop lines.

Urgh I’m so excited!

Update: Gizmodo just posted an article about the newly updated iMacs. [Link]
