I’m bored. I’m very bored. Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored!
I thought last night was dead, but tonight is even worse. If I had any less to do, I wouldn’t be breathing. I just have to keep reminding myself that at least I’m getting paid.
I think it must be because I’m tired, but I’m feeling a bit down tonight as well. I need more sleep, much more. At least Sunday night is my last one of this run, and possibly the month as well. Well, that’s the downside. I wish I had more work this month. Blah, blah, blah.
Between the boredom and the lethargy, I’m not really sure I should have even attempted to post something here, but now that I’ve started, let’s see where it goes.
I hate it when I feel this tired and listless at work. The lack of anything to do only makes me feel even more tired. If I had something to keep me busy, I’m sure I would be my normal perky self.
I’m starting to stress myself out over shopping for more items to complete my all-new digital lifestyle. There’re so many things I want, so much that I need, that I can’t afford it all at once. I need to prioritise my purchases carefully, to make sure I get the right bits in the right order.
I’ve decided I want a better mouse, one with a scroll wheel and 2-buttons. A friend at work who is a Mac fanatic has recommended one that he uses. It’s a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse and looks pretty good. He said all I would need to do is pair it up with my iMAC, a driver won’t be needed. Sounds good to me!
I also think next will be the audio interface that I’ve already mentioned. It’s an Edirol UA-25 and I can pick it up discounted in the West End. If I have the energy, I might even bop down there on Monday morning, after work and grab it. Without it, I can’t connect a MIDI keyboard, as well as get a decent guitar and mic recording. You wanna hear me sing and play guitar, don’t you?
I’m also going to order the DV camera, I just don’t know what day yet. I want to make sure I am planning to be home when it comes. With that, I’ll get an extra battery, a fast charger and an Firewire cable. I’ll also need a decent external mic and a small tripod, but I need to do some more research before I purchase either one of those items.
Once I’ve got all that, it will just be a question of eventually upgrading the software from GarageBand and iMovie HD to Logic Express and Final Cut Express HD.
And at that point my friends, my all-new digital lifestyle will be nearly complete. I’m counting the seconds!
Oh god, I keep yawning, I’m so tired. Maybe I need to eat something….? I’m going for a sandwich or something. Sorry to have wasted your time.
