So out of the fire comes the Phoenix, aka my new HP desktop! This computer is so much faster and has literally more than 8 times the RAM of the laptop, more storage than you can shake a stick at and I can now run all of the programs and email that I want without having to close anything at all so that I can blog! I love my new computer. So I have no more excuses for not updating my blog on a regular basis...that is until my "stuff" gets packed up and shipping on a slow boat to Germany.

So I was having a ton of issues with my laptop recently and it ended up in the repair shop. It was 6 years old and it was getting slow and slower by the moment. In it's defense I did have a lot of stuff on it that I was in the process of cleaning up, after all I did use it for college and personal and business for those 6 years so it was doing more than its fair share of the work. To make a long and tradegic story short and sweet, my laptop got a REALLY bad virus, even with a CURRENT Norton download, and then the repair dude (he's seriously like 14 so he's a dude not a guy) got all my photos and other data off of it and the entire system had to be trashed and will have to be downloaded again.
