so, this is the third entry that i have started with ‘so’, and so what… when i look around this apartment, i get a feeling that tells me that i need some stuff on the walls, that i need some art, something kool, that i like, and that i can relate to, and that i can justify spending money on…. now, i know that my walls will not be full immediately, since that would require many bunches of cash… but i know in the end, buying some real art will be kool… now, maybe this idea of ‘acquiring’ art is stemmed from my childhood, where i was not exposed to any real art or anything expensive that represented unique thought (well, unless it had some functional use, of course).
so, this weekend has been filled with many events… i’ve watched movies (thanks zip), did some freelance work (thanks nationals), went out friday and saturday nite (thanks mitch and hebs), went shopping (thanks retail stores and work), did laundry (thanks tide), and more (thanks)… but today, something just feels kinda off.. it’s not that i am bored per se, but that i have nothing to do that feels worth while. sure i could do some of the 23978972 things i have to do at the office this week, but it’s the weekend and i should have something better to do. now, i could go hang out at some random place in vancouver, and potentially meet my dream girl, but chances are she’s locked in her own apartment right now, drinking some lightly spiked fruit punch, out of a glass that is heavily marked by condensation, while carelessly flipping through a rather thick glossy magazine over and over. so.. given that.. i think i am just going to have a drink myself, sit on my balcony, and enjoy my own company. all in all, nothing new here.
so yesterday, i finally splurged and bought me an external hard drive. i got the maxtor onetouch ii (250 gb/16mb cache/7200 rpm, with firewire 400/usb2) and it’s fucken sexy. now, i can backup my data easily and don’t have to think about any exceeding my capacity limit on a daily basis (well for at least for the time being). it was kinda a little more than i wanted to spend, but it was exactly what i desired, and of course it was the lowest market price i could i find, so i just bit the bullet. “yey, more room for multimedia!!”
