Midnight Midlife Crisis
Ah, the sweet smell of mucked-up good intentions in the evening... er, night.
Final exam done and aced (okay, so I missed one question of fifty. Considering it was worded ambiguously and the trainer acknowledged the same, plus I got the best score in the class, I'm okay with that.) Downloaded some music, though didn't accomplish what I'd hoped. I wanted to turn MC's favorite song into a ringtone for his phone, using a piece of trial software for that purpose.
Unfortunately MC has a Kyocera phone that doesn't lend itself to custom ringtones, except what you can download from the provider site. And even more unfortunately, that's crapola music at best. (I hate rap music. MC hates it worse than I do.)
Oh well. Next time we're up for a new phone it will NOT be the cheapest option. I bought this one for MC and at the time it was all I could afford. Next time he should be working and can buy his own phone.
My contract is up this June, so I can get a new one with a renewed contract. Doesn't seem possible I've had it for two years - though I'm definitely ready to move up to a new one when the time comes around. I'll probably give my old phone to 00, add her to our plan, and she'll promptly lose the phone. She's notorious for losing and/or killing cell phones.
Not that she doesn't come by it honestly. I'm the queen of finding obscure and bizarre ways of killing electronics and other things.
This entry is going to be short, at least compared to my normal posts. I was going to read, but my eyes are crossing and I guess I'm going to just call it a night.
I need to get up early tomorrow - gotta start looking ahead to my regular schedule once I'm out of training. I'll have a 5am start time, 5-1/2 hours earlier than I start during training. Y'all, that's gonna be a painful transition if I don't start getting up earlier over the next week and a half. I was up yesterday and today before 7, so we're getting there - but it means saying buh-bye to midnight musings on Diaryland!
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
