The part the repair shop needed finally arrived today. When I called, the guy said he was fixing my computer right then and it would be ready for pickup first thing tomorrow.
Unfortunately, with gas at $4 a gallon, I don’t think I can justify making the trip to Fort Wayne just to pick up the computer. That would be two trips in one day, because I have an afternoon class at Ohio State, and then I’m planning to go to Fort Wayne after that to spend the weekend with Michael. By the time I get there, the shop will be closed. So I will have to pick up the computer on Friday. I figure I’ll survive until then.
Mom’s lent me her laptop for a bit — it’s better than Dad’s, though hardly ideal.
Right now I’m keeping myself busy with school and reading. I’m reading Life Sentences: Rage and Survival Behind Bars, which is about the Louisiana State Penitentiary. It’s written by two convicted murderers who spent decades behind bars there.
