Still alive!

But, alas, my Simming computer is dead. :( The power surge that killed the power supply also toasted the motherboard. It’s a proprietary Dell one, and it’s cheaper/less work to buy a new system rather than find/replace the thing. Plus, work has been nuts. The lead-up to Memorial Day always is, since it’s a huge movie-release weekend here in the States, and there’s always last-minute, OMG-the-world-is-ending crap happening.

Anyway, now that the super-crazy is over, I had some time/energy to search for a “new” Simming computer. I found a refurb HP machine on Newegg for $120 that ought to work well enough. It’s stripped-down and loaded with Win 7 Pro 64-bit (No way do I want Win 10) and has a newer, much faster processor than my old machine. I’ve got stuff to stick in it, like a video card and whatnot. The only thing I don’t have is more RAM for it, but it’s coming with 4GB, and that’ll do for TS2 until I can get more. I ordered it yesterday, but with the holiday it won’t ship until Tuesday, so I should have it by the end of next week. Then I’ll need to get everything loaded on it (UGH!), and i’ll be back in business. I had everything backed up on an external drive plus I’m going to stick the old hard drive in it (if it’s not damaged) to use as extra storage, so i’ll be good to go.

Hope everyone is well. I can’t really look at Tumblr since the Amazon app doesn’t really work and the dash doesn’t update. I’m surprised I can post with it, even. But, hopefully I’ll be back around for liking and commenting and all that next weekend.

Hi friend !! So I'm going to gym in the morning with an old friend from high school and I was wondering if you knew like good routines if that makes sense? Idk if you have anything in particular that you do or what you know? Sorry if this is random or stupid I was just wondering!

No, this is a great question! Personally, I LOVE the elliptical. I find it easy to use and enjoyable. Plus it burns tons (about 10 calories per minute). I would also personally recommend machines that focus on abs and legs, because in my experience my arms put on muscle really easily and I want to avoid that. My favourite weight machine is the squat machine. You can definitely feel it working your glutes. My gym also has a pull up machine that assists you in pull ups by overriding some of your weight and that’s a really enjoyable and rewarding one too. Hope I could help, have fun!

Aww God damn it Usagi why did you have to expose me like that!? Yes it’s true. All I do in life is draw Luana art. Nothing else at all. Shit dude I gotta kill myself now. Getting exposed like this? I just can’t take it. This is the end of my career. A 14 year old who can’t do shit without some 12 year old and her mom to back her up I mean shit. I might as well just show my wrists the nearest machine gun.
