Cathy had a migraine today. I've put up with her crankiness, in part because I understand what being in a lot of pain is like, even if I don't understand migraines from the perspective of a migrainesufferer. I doubt I ever will, but the fact that I never will understand what she's going through when she has one comes down to quirky genetics. (Ironically, this is the biology chapter I am on at the moment.) Because she needed a nap and some rest more than anything else, I went out this evening and had some fun at a local table-top gaming store. I should have spent the time doing homework, but I've been stressed out lately and getting some fun in was much needed. I even managed to study some biology.
While I am still annoyed at the broken Dell laptop screen and their lack of customer support, I managed to get a new IdeaPad from Lenovo. (It has replaced a ThinkPad made by IBM I owned several years ago. It has a fair amount of graphics power compared to my other systems, and it might be good for non-strenous gaming. I'm not too sure about this, however. Gamergaters showed the dark underbelly of this hobby, and they have left a bad taste in my mouth. I should not let them prevent me from doing something I enjoy. The one thing that might stop me from a lot of games is my poor hand-eye coordination.)
Next week is midterms, and I will be busy. I have to do a lot of practice tests for the CompTIA A+ hardware exam. All of this culminates in the test. When this week is done, the next four weeks of the class are spent on the software portion of the test. I'm not looking forward to either of them.
All in all, it was just nice for a little break. I hope Cathy is feeling better tomorrow.
I think I had something introspective to post tonight, but I seem to have forgotten what this was. Maybe I will remember it later.
Also, I need to add "Oxygen not Included" to my Steam wishlist.
