    • My new computer

      Zack_Raynor

      My computer is just too cool. Anyway it's for when I go to University (Hopefully) and I plan on getting a "Wacom Graphire4 Classic XL A5 Tablet & Pen USB Mac & Win" which'd make life easier for me to put drawings on. I never realised they'd be so expensive! anyhow I've got to wait till next month when I get paid. Oh and I have a Drving Theory Test on the 14th. Wish me Luck!

    • The Woes of Saving Money.

      12 years ago

      Zack_Raynor

      Right, I am a fan of saving. Seriously I am. I'm all for it. It means you are thinking ahead, planning for the future if you will. It shows perogative, it shows restraint, and it shows courage. Why does it show courage? Because the money is right there. You know you have that £300 sitting in your account doing nothing. (When I say "Nothing" I mean collecting interest, but to most, that in itself is nothing) Being able to have the control to stay your hand, is something I somewhat admire. I, like most people like to spend. Like to be a consumer. Every month, when I get the paycheck it's off to Game (or something) and by a weeks time (if you're lucky) it is already gone. Thats right. A month of effort gone in a week. However I've been good recently. And by good, I'm judging by my standards of not saving. By good, I mean that with my last month's paycheck, I spend it all in one go. you're probably thinking "What's good with that?" well I did that 2 weeks AFTER I got payed. Yup. My restrain skill has increased. Anyway, to the point - What I've spent it on. Now hopefully I'm going to University next year (More on that story, later.) and as such I will (hopefully) move out. On that note, the course in which I shall partake is a course necessarily to do with computers. Now, the computer my dad got back in the mists of time (that's 2002 to the likes of you and me) is in the computer world, a relic. Now I've been looking to get a new computer for *ages* and recently (for reasons not specified at this time) I've asked (and subsequently had) been given an increase of hours in my job. So. Back to the point (and you'll notice that I do like to go out on a tangent if I write Blogs often, as you've already seen many times on this blog already) my last month's paycheck I got was a 19" Samsung Flatscreen TFT (LCD) Monitor. Now I ordered that last... Saturday and it arrived the following Monday. I was gobsmacked atjust how damn cool the thing is. It costed me £260 for it (inc. VAT and Delivery). The observant of the computering world would ask why a 19" monitor Flatscreen TFT Cost £260? you can get a 21" one for about the same price! You see, that's because I was thinking ahead. Yup, I was one step ahead. You see, the best thing about the monitor ( OK *Things*) is that it is also a HD TV. I figured this into my "plans" thus saving me space and money from the lack of need of buying an actual TV. The fact it's High Definition is great too, meaning I get to play my X-Box 360 in all it's glory. There is a *slight* downside. I've spent all my money. And I've 2 weeks to go till payday (And therefore also, a new computer) which is just agonising. Anyhow, I went into Eastleigh (I avoid using "Town" as "Town" indicates "Southamption") and noticed twice as many things that piqued my interests. I mean, is it just me? or is it that when you are trying to not spend money, your brain is telling you to spend money? even if it's on random stuff you wouldn't normally buy? I mean I was interested in a 256mb MP3 Player and I dont even listen to music often! However I had to give in to that one. (Yeah I was naughty) as it was only £12. Anyway I think I've rambled on enough. Night-o -_-!

    • Some Bitching

      Zack_Raynor

      Yeah... I seriously need to get a new job. Thing is there seem to be lacking in this area that I live.The one I currently have isn't exactly difficult however the fact remains that it pays minimum wage -_-! Saving up for a computer so I could go to use it when I get to Uni however the rate my job pays, even with the reasonable target of 3 months I still wont get it. Now I have to increase my hours to make sure I get it. This then leads to the fact that (I'm lazy) I dont want to work much more than I already am. So I'm just forcing myself to slog through it. Think of a shiney new computer and think of the pennies... (Sigh)

    • Depression

      13 years ago

      Zack_Raynor

      Yeah I dont want to sound like an Emo or act like one or be in any-way identified as one but at the moment I am depressed. So depressed and I dont want to seem like I'm rambling (Which btw, I am) but It hurts so much. This is the first time I have been dumped and it hurts. Hurts like hell. I thought it was going so well and then out of the blue, she ups and says "Sorry, I've Fallen in love with another man" and goes. The more I think about it the more frustrated I get because I start asking "Is it my fault? Was I too Laid-back? Did I take her for Granted? Did I trust her too much? All the time she's said 'You're perfect the way you are' and 'I'll never fall for another man, dont worry' Were they lies? I trusted her completely and stopped worrying... Everything I ask I end up blaming her. I know it's not fair. but as people say "Life's not fair" and while it's true I have a glimmer of hope and a wish that hopefully I am waking from a nightmare and that things will go back the way they were. Unfortunatly I know it's not going to happen....Sorry That's all I have to say...

    • Back to Beijing (Part Bio(!?!))

      13 years ago

      Zack_Raynor

      Actually not really. I'm going back to Hong Kong the first time in (almost) 10 years. Last time was 1997. To those who don't know (That's all of you) I'm half Chinese and half Cantonese. The difference to those who care, are the fact that Hong Kong was once known as Canton, hence the name "Cantonese" This was until 1997 of course, a British Colony for 100 years. Chinese obviously is people from China. now that it's officially a part of China again I wonder if I'm fully Chinese? or am I still part Chinese and part Cantonese? Anyway so yeah, I was there for the hand over of Hong Kong. That was so cool and I emember the day well. There was a Bridge and fireworks were going off here and there... I also had a guided tour of China (Only the South and South-Eastern parts) and I met all my Mother's family who I've never seen before. They were selling lots of Gundam "Snap Together" kits which I bought some and was totally addicted to putting them together. Anyway I speak Cantonese. But not very well as I have been living in England since I was 6. However, dispite that decline in the use of Cantonese for me and adding the fact that I cannot read or write Cantonese, I still got a D in GCSE Cantonese. (Of which I am insanely proud, passing only on the Speaking and Listening)

    • Eldar Scrolls IV: Oblivion

      Eldar Scrolls IV: Oblivion is so cool. I'm currently a level 12 Khajit Agent equipped with a set of Elven armour. Well except I'm wearing a Hood (Dark Brotherhood's Listener Hood) Gaunlets which gives me a constantly active Detect life (65m) and Boots which give me +8 Agility. I got the Skeleton Key so no more buying Lockpicks for me (One of the Daedra Quests req: level 10 though) and I've completed the Thief and Darkbrotherhood Quests. I have been banned from the Mages and Fighters Guild (Cause I accidentally Stole from them) and I'm currently trying to gather up 20 Bear pelts -_-! as you may or may not know, They weigh a ton. If anyone know where there re Bears in abundence, please let me know. i want to become Master :). Oh and If anyone know where the clues that the 4 Books are suppose to lead to please let me know too...

      Yeah it's a shame Patrick Steward's character dies so early on. Whats the point of hiring someone so good if you're only going to use him for a few moments? Specially as it's Patrick Stewart! *sigh* The nerve...

      Cool, though (I can't do as good but consider it constructive) you may want to extend the red a bit more and maybe paint over the actual Iris before adding the effect.
