My ex-friend filed for an Order of Protection against me. I went to the police today with screenshots of things she said to me. They said I can't file a counter one on her but he told me to keep the screenshots for the court hearing and he says the judge will most likely throw the case out. Since pretty much everything she wrote in the paperwork is false and I can prove a lot of it, I'm feeling confident in the policeman's words. She claimed I was banned from two local cons (which are run by the same people). No, I chose to stop attending those cons because they were poorly managed. In fact, I received e-mails offering a discount on registration because I attended previously. They wouldn't have done that if I was banned and they certainly would have notified me if I was. I just want this all over with. I want her out of my life. She's proven herself to be a compulsive liar who loves calling the police for every little thing, I have no tolerance for that crap.

On a slightly different note, I feel bad for the people in the LGBT club. While ranting about my "fit" (really an over-sensory meltdown from Aspergers) she said I "scared everyone." Seeing as the president tried to comfort me and see I was alright, I say that wasn't true. I imagine a lot of those people wouldn't like that she is painting them as paranoid ableists.

Does anyone else think that Windows 8 is pure and utter garbage? I got stuck with it because I needed a new laptop this past summer. My MMOs don't like it at all, when I never had a problem running either of them on my old laptop with Windows 7.
Well, I've had a fucking guts-ful of it. I'm sick of the crashes and fuck ups, and having my game time screwed up by a shitty product that has all the feel of something rushed to market, with more bugs than a meadow in springtime. So as soon as I can afford it, I'm getting a copy of Windows 7.

welcome to the club.... If i could get a restraining order against my former friend, I would.. since i always afraid she or her friend who has threatened me before might try to do something against me. its why i dont attend cons by myself.

Only have every second windows, the golden rule. Personally I don't like that Microsoft is becoming more like apple.

My rant for the day - why do people feel the need to be so fucking arrogant. I'm sorry I couldn't do 11 hours of work in about half that time. Not my fault other people are fucking potatos that can't do their job properly. Rage.jpg. Seriously, its always the duty managers that bitch to me when shit isn't getting done, never the cause of the problem.

Also, why is it whenever I live with women, there's always the one that loads 15 videos simultaneously because apparently they've reached the godlike status of youtubing skill. To top it off she did this on my birthday yesterday... All I wanted to do was play some games but I literally couldn't because of the lag. It literally causes me to not be able to do what I want on the net, because I can barely load Facebook, let alone hit do transfuse micro in Starcraft

Yep, I hate it, and so does ,my boyfriend (and he's comfortable using Apple OR Windows software). It was made with touchscreens in mind, not regular laptops/computers. I fortunately had my current laptop come with Windows 7, but it had a backup boot disc (for some weird reason) of Windows 8. It's been thrown into the darkest depths of a drawer.

Fuck technology and fuck work...

So my External HDD works in every computer except my own, and no one elses works in it either. Not a good sign...

Work we had cleaners polishing the floors. I had to supervise the store again, and move things back when they were done. I was supposed to finish at 5am. Most of it was a two person job. First person to help came in at 5am because the rosters were fucked... Again. Stupid fuckwit managers, the level of comptetence in that hellhole is legitsies pathetic...

My husband got the Huolon mount in less than 10 kills, while I'm over there counting the minutes til he comes back up. I want to be happy for my husband, but really... I'm the one who pays attention to the game. He'll just sit on the computer with internet explorer pulled up and world of warcraft in the background. And this mount has like, a .96% drop rate. So unfair he got that...No more heals for him.

^I can totally relate- my friend is a veteran WoW player, he tells me that with a level 90 character I should totally be able to solo the raid which drops Ashes of Al'ar. Well, that didn't work, I ended up getting pretty much perma-stunned by one of the last bosses. So he tells me that I need 4 people for that. Now he's telling me "You don't need help for that!"
Make up your freaking mind!

The court date is Tuesday and like I said before I just want it over with. The whole thing has caused me so much anxiety and depression. I have barely left the house the past two weeks and most days I don't want to leave my bed. I try to work on cosplays but I never get around to actually doing it.

It's not really just the thing with her, it's just I'm lost in life. I didn't enroll in university this semester because I felt I wasn't really accomplishing anything there. I'm 27 with no career path and I still live with my parents. It makes me feel like a total loser.

That lovely time when you're in a rush to finish a cosplay, and you need to make a huge trek out (I might live in a city with a fashion/sewing district, bit I live at the EDGE of the city and it's downtown, an hour away each way) to buy one TINY thing you ran out of or didn't buy and nothing else can get done til you have it... Rrrrrrrrgh.

Some dude, who I gave my Email to because it felt awkward not to (hard to explain, but it was stupid of me), is annoying the Hell out of me! Take a hint: I'M NOT INTERESTED IN DATING YOU! I will talk about Anime, manga, games and cosplay, but I will not be your girlfriend!! Hello? Don't people understand that talking on the computer does NOT signify interest!?

Sorry. I just don't like clueless people. I feel better now.
