So apparently I should stop telling you all about my computer problems. Each time I do things apparently escalate and get worse. >.< That's right folks. Tonight, I am blogging, for the first time ever, on my iPad. Yep, I went out and bought a convert cord so I can upload my photos to it and luckily already have a keyboard. But let's be clear here, I doubt these posts are going to look as good since I don't have Windows Live Writer to help with the format. You've been warned!
First off I guess I'll tell you what's up with Ripley. Well last night after posting I thought I'd run some more scans and try to figure out what the silly error was I was getting at boot-up. I ran my Alien Autopsy software that came with the laptop…only to suddenly get a failed SMART test. The error had these words for me “Hard drive failure is IMMINENT. Backup your files and get a new hard drive.” Whoa. Imminent is one serious word. There are so few things in life that are imminent. However, just like the scan vowed, this morning I tried to do some work on Ripley only to have many many more crashed and system failures. The final verdict: Ripley needs a new heart. =(
So until her imminent transplant, I'll just have to make do. It's going to be a work in progress…
I had the opportunity to sleep in until 8:30am this morning but instead I found myself wide awake checking email in bed around 7am. Deciding to start my day I hit the shower and sat down for breakfast. Strawberry overnight oats topped with a spoonful of chunky peanut butter and a pinch of raisins. Overnight oats is really a great protein packed breakfast, but I keep finding it too small. Yes it keeps me full but I keep wishing I had more when I get to the bottom!
Since I had so much time before my A&P lab I sat around crying (just a little) about Ripley's imminent demise and studying for my quiz on the lymph system. While I studied I sipped this delicious shot of espresso mixed with a touch of honey and cream. I tried Nespresso's Cosi flavor which was described as light with citrus notes. I knew it wouldn't be my favorite since I like really bold espresso but it wasn't bad.
But why was there free pie? Well one of my sweet classmates, Andy, did really well on the last biochem test and he wanted to celebrate! He's such a sweetheart.
