Panic! I thought my laptop was dead!
bishi, keh, smirk
Almost had a mental meltdown because I thought my laptop was dead. After some tinkering it looks like my charger cable is dying, internal wiring must be loose. Got it working for now but should probably check where I can buy a Sony Vaio charger. The official Sony website doesn't seem to actually have them in stock, so looks like ebay is my option. They are probably 3rd party there, but whatever, as long as my laptop turns on.

I really can't have my laptop out of commission right now, I can't afford a new one. I'll need it to edit photos from Chez & Ash's wedding and do freelance work.

May have a website job to do soon, had a potential customer call up today and ask some questions. He said he wanted to call around and get a few more quotes but he said I was the most informative person he'd talked to. Actually wondering where he got my number because I haven't listed in the local yellow pages for a while or been promoting anywhere else. My own website is in major need of an overhaul too.

My parents are helping me with a large chunk of my medical bills and I'll have to pay them back later. But that did ease a lot of my financial stress.

I feel like such a failure when I can't afford things. I still don't really believe in the idea of health insurance though. I feel like it's just a way to swindle people out of their money over paranoia. It's really only worth it if you have an ongoing illness.

I find it incredibly typical that something went wrong right before I'm about ot go on holiday next month. I swear everytime I have a savings goal, something unexpected comes up and eats all my money. Whenever I've tried to save for other holidays, new computer, tv, camera or game stuff... things usually go to shit with my car, I get some ridiculous fine or had other unexpected expenses come out of nowhere. Seriously I always allow for my usual bills and budget that out. It's just the unforseen that seems to know when I have some money tucked away and rise up to devour my hopes and dreams. Fuck you murphys law.

I'm still going to Japan, everything is booked. Just my spending money is looking worse off than I had hoped.
