Welp...Tory's on her new computer! A very lovely little HP computer, which is interesting for me as I've grown used to having a busted up Compaq, now with all of my video and music files uploaded. It was a hassle to bring over all my music from my old ITunes to my new one as, apparently, you can't take your music from your IPhone and upload it into ITunes (which is REALLY stupid), so I had to rehook up my old computer, copy all of my music, and then bring it over to my old computer...only for me to notice the songs wouldn't play when I tried it later as it made me copy the contents of the drive rather than bring copies of the music over to my music folder. So I had to bring my music over twice. And my DVD Ripper program was being difficult as it refused to let me bring the program onto my new computer while it was still registered on my old one. The problem? The reason why my computer is busted is IT WON'T OPEN UP ANY FILES ENDING IN EXE. In other words, everything. So I was unable to uninstall it. Fortunately we were able to write to the people who made the program, explain our problem, and they sorted it all out and now I have my DVD ripper program back online. As well this new computer I have was SO MARVELOUSLY easy in recognizing my mother's and my network through its Wi-Fi (which is necessary for Internet, yes?). No wires, wheeeee~! Plus it seems to have a primitive video editing software already included in the computer for making home videos...not nearly as good at editing as WMM, but it has interesting effects like intros to your videos that take you through a gallery, a photo album, a news intro, etc. before starting the video, as well as good stuff for editing colors and brightness. Maybe I could use it in combination with WMM for one of my videos at some point.
Anyone seen Snow White: A Tale of Terror? It's a pretty good movie, it's got Sigourney Weaver as the Queen and she's awesome. But anyway, so I'm doing a Mythology group project on that film, regarding the mythological, folklore, etc. influences shown in the film. Obviously Snow White the fairy tale is the obvious one, but I plan to compare the Queen to Elizabeth Bathory in my side of the project. If you guys don't know who she is, look her up: she is the creepiest woman. o.o
Speaking of films, my film class starts next week. That'll be interesting. I don't know the teacher, so I don't know what to expect, but I'm hoping since it's a fast-paced course we'll learn a lot quickly and it'll be fun.
I'm noticing a few peeps on my F-list are on Spring Break already? Lucky you all! My Spring Break be at the end on March to the beginning of April. My mother's upset about it because she has the most work to do at the end of the months (as she has to do monthly reports then), so it sort of fucks with the idea of us taking time off together and doing stuff. It's not like we were thinking of going on a Disney cruise or going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (though we have been MOURNING TOGETHER about how much we'd love to do either recentlyyyy DDDX), but we at least wanted to do something. Oh well. Looks like it'll have to be more of a "staycation" than a "vacation." XD;
