Gettin' some R & R is often not easy to come by. Too many thoughts overwhelm me to stay comfortable for long. However, I can't help but say that right now I have found my favorite place to relax. Hands down: my couch in my living room. Imagine a big open space with a comfortable loveseat and couch, a big screen TV, and entertainment heaven. My favorite channel is definitely well balanced between the Travel Channel and Animal Planet. I also occasionally indulge in some Cartoon Network On Demand and watch Tom & Jerry, my all time favorite cartoon. These luxuries have never really existed back home with my parents. The kitchen is 10 paces away. Who could ask for anything more? Also, whenever my computer gets fixed, I'll have portable wifi. For now, I'm content and overjoyed to be tethered to my desktop in my room.

Speaking of my cave, my room only lacks one thing: a desk. Ironically enough, I have a desk chair, but no desk. I need to figure out how to get one. The setup goes as follows: 
  • tower is to the left
  • stereo speakers to the right
  • monitor and mouse sit atop the speakers
  • computer speakers sit atop the tower
  • keyboard lays either on the floor or in my lap depending on if it's in use
Solution: Get a desk and purchase a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Easier said than done, really. But till then, I'll sit on the floor. I don't mind. I'm just happy I have a working computer in the first place. Muchos thanks to my housemate.

When my haven is not my living room, I would probably find any indoor or outdoor concert hall relaxing. Being enveloped in music of any genre, perhaps not metal, but you get my drift, is a luxury and puts me at ease. Theatre performances are also a favorite passtime. I enjoy the stage as well as being in the house. When i was in high school, being a techie meant that I got to mimic the Phantom of the Opera and roam silently through the catwalks during a show. *grin*

Since I last updated yesterday, I haven't done much. I did get in touch with [livejournal.com profile] lilsinger_95. It was so good to see her again. *smile* We talked for quite a while. A friend of mine who also uses a dog ran into us and we chatted for about 10 minutes. We departed and I visited a residence hall and made a tie dye shirt. From there I went home and watched Tom & Jerry.

There are a lot of events going on for Welcome Days at NIU. I'm just going right along and trying to meet new people. NIU's first home football game of the season is on September 11th. I plan on attending and cheering on the Huskies!

Wish me luck on finding a desk and hope all of you are well!

I keep forgetting things that I need for the new place and for the upcoming year.
So I'm going to write one down.
  • metal hook rack (Walmart) 
  • plastic door hanger
  • desk
  • bed sheets (a matching set would be nice) 
  • new pillow
  • comforter
  • RAM for laptop
  • faster RAM for desktop
  • bulletin board
  • laminated calendar
  • webcam for the desktop (to converse on skype with my sister)
The list is probably going to grow, but for right now, these seem to be the crucial things.
Oh, and Jim needs a haircut. *sigh* Hope I get this job.
