"Rage... taking over"
Should have been fine right? Except when I got home, my computer wouldn’t turn on. So back to the store and they keep it and tell me the next day that my motherboard is unstable, so they’re sending that out too. My options are to wait for the motherboard to come back, which could take three to four months, or to pay for a new one and get a refund when the old one comes back. So I pay for the new one, and an extra ten bucks because they tell me my computer was running hot and they cleaned the heat sink. I get it home, happy that it runs, and happy that it’ll be running cooler. After about ten minutes I see that instead of running at 55° like it was before I took it in, my CPU is running at 70°. And the temperature goes up quick if I put any sort of load on the computer.
I’ve had it for a few days now because I’ve been working on a paper, but I’m done the essay so I’m taking the machine back in tomorrow.
I’ve taken my computer in more than ten times since I bought it last year. Most of the time it works fine, but when it doesn’t, it really doesn’t. Computer troubles are almost as bad as car troubles.
I’ve been on a really short fuse all week and I can’t figure out why. I'm constantly on the verge of ripping someone's head off. I’m getting mad at the things I’d normally get mad at (like this shit with the computer), but instead of letting go like I normally do, I’m carrying them around with me. I’ve been trying to avoid human contact as the types of snide comments I make when I’m like this tend to be friendship breakers. I read a funny word on a website the other day that sums it up perfectly, I think: manstruation. I’m manstruating. I think it started after I got a B12 shot last Wednesday, but I looked it up and B12 is supposed to make you feel better, not worse. Whatever it is, it’s fading as the days go by. I guess I should be glad I didn’t kill anybody.
Alright, if you’ve stuck with me through all the complaining, here’s a Tom Tomorrow strip from a while ago that is all of a sudden relevant again. And it’s comic related.
