I want to first welcome you all to my blog. I will only tell you that though this is labelled as a back to school kind of blog, I will write about different aspects of my life. What that basically means is, I will be writing about anything my mind wants to. So with that said, here we go.....
I should be studying for my Logic exam on Wednesday or perhaps working on that outline for the How To presentation I have due on Tuesday, but here I sit, in front of the computer, typing my thoughts. Good use of my time, don’t you think.
I did get a lot done today though. I went to Staples and picked up the external hard drive I have needed with a gift card that I had for that store. I think 1TB will do the trick. Funny you know, I can remember back in the mid 90’s when someone I knew bought a new computer with one gig, he said, “Can you imagine! 1 gig! No one could ever use up more than that!” Now that is funny if you think about it. Here I am now wondering how much I can fit on the 1TB.
So I also went to Wal-Mart and picked up a few things I needed for my new apartment. I have been here for two months now and just finally bought a microwave. Talk about going back in time there. I actually remember the first microwave we had in the house. I was about eleven years old and we moved into a new built townhouse and there it was. That is pretty much the same time that I started cooking, so I really only knew the microwave life.
Ok so what else did I buy at Wal-Mart. I got a wall clock that is big enough to see without my glasses. It makes it easier at night to know if it is really time to get up or if I can sleep a few minutes more.
The rest of the stuff I got was basic things that I needed for the apartment. I did spend more then I wanted to, but that always seems to happen there.
Ok, so, this is the end for today, only because I just wanted to get a first entry in and wanted to see what it looked like on the page. For each entry though I am going to post a picture of something that reminds me of my childhood in the 70’s. I figured that if any of you on my Facebook page, happen to read, you might get a kick out of seeing some of the various items, commercials, entertainment, electronics, or any other pictures I happen to find on the net, which pertains to my childhood memories.
Today I will show you a picture that resembles my most treasured childhood possession all throughout my childhood. It was a Sears plush Winnie-the-Pooh.
Well that is it. TTFN
