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!

Love Talk?

*Mood: Bored*

*Mood: Bored*

Konnichiwa minna-san!

Genki desu ka?

Today, MK has been working hard on her studies.

Since I was sick last week, which was a week of tests at my school, I have to prepare myself to take all of the tests when I get back to school (next week). That means I have a lot of studying to do. I have a test for almost every subject, that’s a total of about 12 tests. So in about 5 days, I have to study for 12 tests!

Yikes, MK’s freaking herself out by saying that! Hopefully it’s not really as much work as it sounds like when I say, “12 tests to study for in 5 days” *shivers*.

Anyway, so when Ms. Aya from PaperDiaries blogged about “Auditioning for Love” a few days ago, MK could relate to her post somewhat.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not big on blogging about all of my deep personal feelings and experiences concerning love or crushes or whatever (neither is Ms. Aya), but since she suggested that I blog about why I can relate to her post, I will [quickly] do just that.

This might turn out to be interesting…

MK’s Personal Experience with “Auditioning for Love”

Hmmm

As minna-san should know by now, months ago, MK and her family moved to this wonderful place. Here in this wonderful place, I’ve met a lot of really nice people. One person who stands out very peculiarly to MK is this guy at my church who I’ll call Lucas. MK can remember the first tim

e she saw Lucas. He was walking past her and smiling. The thing is, that was the first time that I was at his church, so I guess that was his way of welcoming me. But I think it stood out to me because he was smiling very honestly though he seemed really shy. I remember until today (months later) exactly how he was smiling at me. At the time I found him peculiar (in a very good way) and wanted to get to know him.

Up until now I have never had a real conversation with Lucas, but I has been observing him and have seen that he really is a very peculiar guy. This has only made me want to get to know him even more. But although I still want to get to know him, I’ve still never really talked to him.

MK’s quite frustrated by this and feels sort of like she has to audition for Lucas‘ attention when she’s around him. I don’t like feeling like that at all and really hope we’ll become friends sooner or later.

————–

*Sigh* So that’s why MK said she could relate to Ms.Aya‘s post.

But it’s time for me to go now.

I feel really good for writing such a long post for minna-san. Hopefully I didn’t bore minna-san too much.

Back to studying now!

Pain in the Back!

Ohayou minna-san!9.gif

MK‘s finally back with another blog post for minna-san!11.gif

For any of you who follow me on twitter, you’ll notice that I was completely absent from the entire internet for about a WEEK!!!26_thumb.gif

This was because MK was very sick with back/muscle problems. I was almost immobilized for more than a week, due to the great pain I was feeling in my lower back. I spent the whole week in my house lying on my belly because I was unable to sit or lie on my back and it was quite painful to walk. I had almost zero social contacts outside of those with my family members (like my super annoying brother).

I think I can safely say that it was one of the lamest weeks I’ve had.

But in all of it I did my best to stay positive and trust that God was in control of the entire situation. I knew He’d heal me when He knew it was the best time to do so.

And sure enough. Here I am, doing fine now. I barely have any more back problems at all. Yay! God is good!

Hmmm, MK’s mom just arrived with some food and is calling MK and her brother to come eat. I guess this means it’s time for MK to go.

Oh!

MK is free from school this week! So, MK is going to try to blog to minna-san more often this week.

Also,

One of the reasons why I’ve been absent for so long her at my blog is because MK has been putting a lot more time and effort into her christian website (www.Teen-Fortress.com). I’ve got a blog there too, and I’ve been doing more blogging there, so minna-san is definitely welcomed to check it out.

OK, bye bye now.

Ja~ne!
