Staying Positive in The SUU Computer Lab

I am going to buy a computer on credit. I know, I know. Credit is bad. However I have become so dependent on computers for so much of my hobbies/interests that I am honestly feeling like a fish out of water. Music, photography, social contacts, information, songwriting, sports, school all seriously suffer because I have no computer to call my own. So I resolve this day to buy a computer on credit no matter what my mom says! She's not the boss of me!

I'm surprised that junior high kids don't all just kill themselves. They are miserable people, inside and out. Working with junior high aged kids in a residential treatment center is like an anthropological study of a different species. A cannibalistic species that feeds off pain and crappy music. Actually sometimes they can all be great. It's just creepy how quickly they can turn into pure evil.

HAHA oh thats funny. Yeah I actually thing thats a good way to buy a computer these days. I think I have to recommend it over buying parts here and there. Its so much easier when it comes to warranty and service. Plus they are cheaper now than the parts.

I think you have a very interesting job Dan.
