Spring has begun in typical Oregon fashion, with rainy days. The combination of grey rainy days and missing my housemate that moved to Japan last Sunday has left me in a general state of melancholy all week. I’ve been half-heartily searching for a new roommate all week, and my other roommate hasn’t been around to do interviews (at least as much as I’d like), so that hasn’t helped either. I’d like to get the whole roommate mess sorted out before I leave for LA on Thursday, but I’m not sure that’s gonna happen.
Wednesday night the video card in my desktop computer decided to commit hari kari. I’ve got a new one on the way from Newegg, which will actually be a pretty significant upgrade. Until then, I’ve got my desktop running headless so I can stream music off of it on my spare laptop. But it is alas an unplanned expense. Fortunately, for one of the first times in my life, I’m in a place I can absorb it.
