Younger Than Springtime
It’s supposed to be spring and it’s raining like crazy. I was really looking forward to wearing clothes for warmer weather, but it’s always so wet that I have no choice but to wear my damn boots.
Recently this year, I found that I liked dresses and skirts much more than pants and jeans. I rarely wear jeans and find them crazily uncomfortable sometimes. You know how jeans are supposed to stretch? Well, years ago I bought a pair of jeans that were a little too big. I thought they’d shrink, which they did, but then I guess I lost weight off my bottom and the jeans got smaller! These jeans didn’t stretch, either. Their material was about 90% cotton or something. The jeans looked amazing, I’ll tell you.
But I have this problem that jeans do not fit on me. I’m short, and though I’m skinny, my calves and lower legs are pretty muscly. I have dancer’s legs (which James lovingly complimented me on! ♥️), so that makes them pretty huge. When I try to find jeans that fit me, they choke my legs, but they fall down at the waist and the bottoms of the jeans trail across the ground.
I’m happy with my shape, but being short and bigger in the weirdest places makes it hard to find such clothes. That is one reason why I just prefer skirts and dresses.
Well, that is until Sebby told me that my skirts were too short. :P Okay, not my fault… but it is pretty annoying moving around in a short skirt.
I don’t know why I’m talking about clothes.
But it’s just really frustrating. This is one of the reasons why I don’t really like shopping for clothes. I rarely find things that fit nicely, and it’s been like that for a while, so for quite some time I haven’t really enjoyed shopping other than window shopping with Lilian. :)
Back to the weather. It’s raining.
I also don’t have many sandals and open-toed shoes. Not everything looks good with sneakers and my sneakers don’t go well with everything. So when real spring and real summer do come, I’m hoping to find some new shoes.
Yesterday, I pulled my laptop, Fin, out from my bag. I was upset and shocked to see that he had a really deep scratch across a third of his length. I was so upset because I do take care of him, and now he had the most terrible scratch. It was on the lid so he still worked fine, but I was upset that something from the inside of my bag must have scratched him pretty hard.
Not only that, but Fin has scratches from stapled worksheets, and scabby-looking parts as if someone has scratched him with fingernails or poked him really hard. :(
This is why I dislike having a laptop that’s so bulky. I do like my laptop and use it every day, but there are some things I don’t like. His shiny finish is nasty – because not long after typing on the keyboard, you see obvious fingerprints. The model has also been discontinued (Toshiba Satellite A300). :( I don’t know if they have spare parts for a replacement lid, but James is buying me a skin for cheap from eBay.
I’m probably going to write a little article about laptop care, probably from my point of view with my kind of laptop and from my own experience.
