School

This very moment, I am working on a paper that I should have begun work upon 12 hours ago. However, random life interfered, and I was unable to begin work until now.

Hacking

So, I decided today to add a hard drive to my computer. This is not a task that is particularly difficult -- I did them routinely when I worked for the Hardware department, and never really had any issues with that. Well, I add the hard drive to the computer, start up, autodetect the hard drive with the computer and all is going well. However, all was not well as my Ethernet card decided not to work for a while. Separating the hard drives and giving the NIC a time out worked though, so now my computer is happy. <grin>

Life

So yesterday(Saturday) was a very very bad day. Today(Sunday) is going to be a very very good day to compensate for that fact.
Emilia seems to be scared of me now. I'm not entirely sure why, and I think that's what bothers me the most. She just wouldn't look at me and wouldn't talk to me and seemed so utterly serious. I feel really bad, since I just want to make her happy and it's sorta obvious that I'm not doing that right now. I'm not precisely sure what my course of action is going to be -- I suspect that I'm just going to go with the flow. I've got three weeks to make up lost ground, so hopefully I can manage to do that. She enjoyed spending time with me once, and hopefully she can again.
On a lighter note, it's good to have conversations with friends. I've had several in the past couple days, and it just makes things a whole lot better. It's scary to think that May 19 is approaching so darned fast.
