Laptop Research

*Mood: Somber*

Ohayou minna-san!

Genki desu ka?

Just some months ago, MK’s laptop crashed for the first time. I was a nervous at first but when it recovered, I just brushed it off. After some weeks, it crashed again. And again. I can’t remember just how many times my laptop has crashed so far, but I know that it has started crashing more and more often.

The other day, my dad came home and he, my brother and I were hanging out in my room. My laptop was on, of course, and I think I was showing them something online when it crashed once again! But this time, when I tried to turn it on again, it just showed that scary black screen, kinda like this one.↓

Only, mine was empty and just said "Operating System not found"

When I saw this, MK became a bit panicked. I tried pressing the Enter-key but ever time I pressed it, another “Operating System not found” would just show up. Again and again.

So, I was forced to shut down my laptop by force.

Tip: For those of you who aren’t great with computers (like my mom), you might have experienced times when you are unable to get your computer to respond, therefore, also unable to get the computer to shut down. In such predicaments, try holding down your computer’s power button for about 5-7 seconds. The computer will shut down forcefully.

Anyway, so once MK’s computer was down, I proceeded to pray and ask God to restore my computer back to normal, even if just for a short period of time so that I could get my files backed up.

Of course He heard my prayer and allowed my computer to start up normally again.

But now I know that I should really look into a new laptop that I can buy soon, because my dad said it probably won’t be long before it happens again, and it might not start up again!

So, MK has been looking into some laptop-candidates.

Of course, as I’ve said in a previous post, a Macbook/Macbook Pro is one of MK’s laptop candidates.

Macbook Pro!

For a long time, I’ve wanted a mac because I think Mac are superior to Windows for multiple reasons. I also love how macs are so good at creative stuff. Macs are just like, the world’s coolest computers.

Of course, I do agree with people who feel macs are overpriced. But I think macs are kinda like luxury vehicles. You pay extra for the fact that it’s a mac and it’s got the world-famous apple-logo on the lid. It’s possibly just a mind-share thing.

But anyway, if I were to buy a mac, I’m pretty sure I’d buy a 13″ Macbook Pro. Because I’ve always loved the size of the 13″ White Macbook, and obviously this one is the same size, only much better build and much better specs.

But to be realistic, I don’t know if my parents would buy me a mac at the moment since it’s at such short notice plus our family’s currently going through a difficult time financially.

So, MK has turned her eyes to some less costly candidates:

  1. Sony Vaio CW-series
  2. HP Pavilion dm3z series
  3. Dell Inspiron 14

Those are the candidates I have seen and am looking into at the moment. If you know anything about any of these candidates, let me know please, I need all the info I can get.

MK will report back to minna-san in the near future with some more information and thought about these and maybe some more laptop candidates!

But for now, I have homework to do!

Ja~ne!

Talk to People Having a Bad Day!☼

*sigh*

 

Konbanwa minna-san!

Surprised that MK has returned so quickly?

Well, this will just be another short post about something that I realized today.

So, as some of you might have seen through my tweets, today was a difficult day for me at school. I was pretty overwhelmed throughout the day because I’ve been having a permanent mountain of homework for weeks now. I feel like I can never really get away from it and I’m just so tired!

Anyway, so what I noticed is that, when someone would talk to me, I’d feel better. I was being pretty asocial for most of the day because of my mood, but when someone would reach out and talk to me, it helped. Even talked to the lunch lady in the cafeteria slightly lifted MK’s spirits for a while (even though she’s not super nice ).

So, next time someone you know isn’t in top spirits, try talking to them. And you don’t even have to talk to them about what’s wrong, even just casual talk can be all the person needs.

Warning: Don’t be annoying, though. Unless the person shows very obvious signs that he/she wants you to continue talking to them, know when to stop talking and let them have some peace and be alone. Whatever his/her problem is, he/she needs to have some time to think it through.

Oh! MK has another video to share with minna-san!

It’s music/piano-related again.

What do you think? I love it. Nintendo rules!

Homework time!

Ja~ne

You will know that I love you!♪♫

*Busy Busy Busy

Konbanwa minna-san!

MK here after her long absence!

I wish I had time to share with minna-san some things about what’s going on with me right now, but MK has been way to busy to blog and still is.

But since I haven’t blogged in so long I decided to share something nice with minna-san!

The other day I was searching online for something and I stumbled upon these really nice free songs by this girl who goes by the name “taylorhayward1“. All of the songs are really beautiful, but my favorite is this one called “You Will Know That I Love You”. I think the title is a bit… interesting, but in a way it describes the song well enough because it is a pretty lovely and romantic song. I usually start daydreaming when I hear this song.

What does minna-san think? Let me know in the comments area!

Oh! How rude of MK!

How is minna-san doing?

OK, need to get back to work!

Ja~ne!
