How are you? I'm looking for a rating out of 10; explanations optional.
I think there's something wrong with Outlook - I don't have a pestering email from my boss questioning my competence or generally being unreasonable about something.
Think I'll have to call IT.
Tail end of a cold. Awful commute. Need a new phone but probs have to wait until next pay day. Lots to do at work.
Is it the battery life?
I've had to charge it while I'm at work for as long as I can remember :(
Also started doing weird things: Chrome sometimes crashes randomly. The homescreen takes fucking ages to redraw. Also not happy with T-Mobile but thankfully my cheap as fuck (£5/month) contract ends in November. Probs gonna go to a Three sim-only deal and buy a Sony Xperia 3 compact for it.
Might tart it up a bit for a bit, sort out some of the problems. Although not the lack of expandable memory, obvs.
I'm tempted to buy a new battery too but heard stories of fakes; plus, apparently getting the old battery out (it's stuck in with glue) can be a hassle and if you bend it you won't be able to put it back in if the new one you buy is shite.
I suppose I have nowt to lose with CyanogenMod. Put it on my boyfriend's old Samsung Galaxy S3 last week with a new battery and it's like a new phone. DAMN YOU NEXUS 4!!!!!
that seems to have a reasonable decent battery life is my blackberry z10 (and even it is shit compared to my old school blackberry that I would lost. I found my iphone drained after about 6 or 7 hours, my samsung galaxy is the same. I can get a good solid day out of my BB though, and a little more than that.
which, for an Android phone, is unheard of. i just want to get to the end of a day without it dying :(
My z3 compact is now on 34% having taken it off charge yesterday at 8am. That's with normal usage - about 3 hours of screen time, 1 hour of Spotify, about 20 mins of youtube, a 30 minute phone call, a couple of photos and photo editing . When I went to bed last night it was on 43% so I whacked stamina mode on and when I woke up 7 hours later it was on 42%. I think it could actually do better than that too as Google Play Services had taken up about 10% of the battery by lunchtime yesterday, I rebooted and it has been fine since then.
Still haven't done a big full day of taking photos and using maps etc but I reckon it would easily last a day, especially with stamina mode on.
fucking Nexus 4
I think its related to Google Now (or whatever the "ok Google" app is called). I usually have to stick it on charge when I get home from work. Might wipe it and stick on that cyanogen mod thing too.
it seems to have improved it a bit. although it downloaded most of the apps I used to have when I signed into something, so it's still a bit bloated.
Because of two frustrating emails.
Just found out that both of my bosses are going to be out of the office for the next fortnight and I don't have that much work on.
Feeling overwhelmedly (not a word) busy at the moment, but most of it is with pretty rad stuff so I can't complain too much.
How are YOU, c_c_b?
mild existential angst
finally getting over a shitty flu
finding i haven't got the time to work on the things that are most important to me at the moment
job is slightly irksome
slight cold, decent looking day ahead though, no deadlines or stress. Home tonight doing some comping vocals on a few tracks I recorded earlier this year :)
nothing is terrible but I'm weirdly out of sorts. I just need someone to give me a slap in the face and a kiss on the head, I think.
especially if some scary stuff that I'm worrief about turns out to be ok, in which case I'll be a lot more than a 5. but I also still feel weirdly out of sorts. Weird lucid dreaming last night, and a weekend spent roomsharing with a MEGA snorer means i'm lacking sleep and perspective.
I am so busy this week though, so at least it will soon be the weekend. i need to plan some good stuff to look forward to.
is a slap in your kisser and a head in your face
because that optimistically leaves wiggle room for things to get a lot worse.
Should go to the doctors for three separate reasons, but will probably end up putting it off or something.
Monday pub was a bad idea.
And stuff going on that I can't talk about on here because I'm being stalked.
Other than that I'm feeling pretty bonza.
Just talk anyway, fuck him.
we need to plan stuff once i unbankrupt myself after this weekend. I had a meltdown at heathrow and refused to get on my flight and they gave me a BA person to look after me, fuckign embarrassing.
Yes we do. I'll email you about plans.
I fly al the time. I just felt a bit queer about getting on that flight. they just put me on the next one.
- Hair/make up looks good
- Outfit is nice (got told I look very cute by work babe)
- Slept pretty good
Reasons its not a 10
- Period pains
- Its not Wednesday
- Feel a bit sick
I bloody LOVE David Morrissey
Knacked ribs still, but a) it's my Thursday and b) my Nexus 4 battery life is great, charge it about twice a week cheers
jfc today is going slowly and painfully
Life's pretty darn decent, and still buzzing from best mate's wedding at the weekend... but that omnipresent and slightly melancholic wistfulness that I just cannot put my finger on continues to linger. A sign of getting old, perhaps.
what is that?!
Heart feels slightly heavy. Think it's just the extra responsibilities of growing up to be honest. Not having that same carefree looseness of spirit of days gone by. Or something. I dunno.
+ In Greece, always wanted to go as a kid because I loved Greek mythology and all that jazz
+ Weather is bangin'
+ My best friend has been on a big downer recently, but he's perked up a bit in the last few days which makes me happy
- Had 4 hrs sleep and was up at 5am to get bus here so pretty knackered
- Left eyelid is swelling up from tiredness (even though I've been sleeping loads recently :/ ). Probably something to do with not sleeping as well as usual in dorms, or not eating enough (/any) vegetables because all Balkan food is bread or pizza and the only vegetables round here are tomato and cucumber (bleughhhh)
Work has gone from mental to easy since friday for about 3 months. 2 jobs interviews this week. Finished in the top10 of a lotr tournament and had a good laugh with the boys at the weekend. Playing pool tonight
He's been playing the same 3 tracks from some random mouth organ and Theremin album over and over and over and over again for the past 3 days. It's very strange behaviour. But it's hilarious. I can't work out if he's losing the plot through fear (leaving to start his own business) or doing it to annoy everyone.
FYI, it sounds a bit like this but MUCH less melodic:
- Work is so boring at the moment. Busy, but boring
- It's a Tuesday
+ I have new shoes on. They are great.
