Fleeting thoughts

I’m glad to finally be leaving for school. Spending my life on this island has been such a drag; not that there isn’t anything to do, because I assure you, there is — but because I’ve grown tired of seeing the same people day in and day out. It’s the same people, the same teachers, the same restaurants, the same drama (that isn’t to say that I enjoy drama, because I don’t), and it’s become repetitive.

Hopefully the new start at SUNY IT will work out. I just need a new environment.

Finally upgraded my Eee PC 900 – Eee PC 901

I finally got the chance to buy a new Eee PC before leaving for college (to be exact, it arrived six days before I leave) and it’s great. Besides the processor being more powerful, I get three to five hours of battery life and my operating system is extremely responsive.

The video card is also an upgraded Intel card (though it doesn’t make that much of a difference, really) which helps a small bit when it comes to gaming.

The best part of the Eee 901 is the improved build quality; the hardware feels a lot nicer and less prone to breakage, which I experienced pretty often with my Eee PC 900.
