I find it a lot easier to wrap up what happened in a week at the end of the week ^^ So I'm gonna do this whenever nothing special that deserves its own topic comes to mind, or I'm just plain lazy :P
'ﾟ★｡ FLU 'ﾟ☆｡
I've been struck down by the flu virus (chronic pharyngitis, sinusitis, malaise, myalgia, fatigue, cough, ... you name it!) since exactly a week ago, so I was mostly home, sleeping like a baby (more than 12 hours daily) in the hope of recovering asap. I also postponed a few meetings and basically just stayed home. I'm still in the recovery process now, although I've taken antibiotics since day 1! Sure takes a long time ~_~
I think the peak of my fatigueness was during the Java Jazz weekend (March 6-8) where I mostly stayed until after midnight. The next day (March 9) was actually a holiday, but my community had a one-on-one follow-up interview meeting for the spiritual gifts assessment session we had last Feb 22, so I still couldn't rest well that day. Thus I couldn't defend myself from the attack of the flu virus the next day o_O
In my 1st week of march: quick update entry, I purposely picked the "I need a break" icon and look how I got the break alright from this flu :P Be careful with what you wished for! xD
'ﾟ★｡ TECHIE 'ﾟ☆｡
And because I had lots of free time at home, when I felt better I finally plugged in my abandoned CPU and started my techie chores of reinstalling all program files from scratch. Imagine you have a brand new PC, with only windows XP and Kaspersky anti virus installed! >_< It took me days and countless restarts to get into acceptable state (70% done). I'm not finished yet, btw. I'm still downloading new files and need to install a couple more things.
This is the worst part: I did ask my cousin to backup 2 important things on C:\, which is the Application Data folder and Fleur de Lis videos (which is OK if he forgot, coz I have them all on DVD). He backed up the videos, but either forgot or skipped the App Data, which is the most important thing! The last time I backed up the App Data was Aug 2008, so in total I lost 6+ months worth of emails & attachments, all of Firefox and other programs' settings & data! *sobs* I will definitely back up my App Data at least once a month from now on!
The first thing I did after reinstalling Thunderbird was to move the email folders to drive E. It's much safer this way, rather than having the emails on App Data folder.
Thank God for Gmail Backup, ImportExportTools, and Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer, they totally save my day!
Most of my emails are back and my bookmark is restored from the server backup!
'ﾟ★｡ "GIFT" 'ﾟ☆｡
I watched Push last weekend, and although we sat in the very front row (in the middle, no less!) of the movie theater, I like it lots. Perhaps because it reminds me of my own (psychic, if you may call it) ability, although I'm nowhere near Cassie or her mom's ability (and honestly speaking, I don't want to be like them! o_O).
The interview last Monday (March 9) kind of serves as a start mark of my commitment to share more to those in need of my discernment. Who knows it might be a blessing (or not), depending on how one takes it afterwards. I'm sorry if I'm not making any sense; only those who know my gift/ability understand what I'm talking about (or you may simply ask :D).
I did try to deliver two different messages to two different persons after that day, and those two confirmed the messages right away. So thank you, you know who you are, for confirming. It gives me the strength and affirmation to keep doing this in the future.
Java Jazz report coming up... when I feel like writing about it ^^;
