Here's a thread where you can talk about anything and never worry about being Off Topic. Talk or complain about anything you want, because anything goes.....

ill start off..

school. it sux. especially in april. a semester is 4 months long roughly and they have 3 out of 4 tests in the last month, and not just one class.. all of them!! and then you have research papers due, projects where you have to deal with partners who are lazy and never do anything and you end up doing all of it... oi and then finals. hopefully the next 30 days will go by fast, but i know it wont. it will be the slowest 30 days of my life, and then summer school. and then when its all over i still have more school. ugh

Ha. I feel the exact same way about school, ive got like 5-6 weeks left.

the weather has been pissen me off. Yesterday it was 67 degress when I woke up, I figured **** it will easily be in the 70s.. I look at weather browsers.. they say it gets colder as the day goes on but sunny also.. I think its an error. I go to class, come back and its friggen 55 degress! An hour later its 48!... eventually it tapered off around 35 degrees. Sigh* the weather is pissing me off!

its 44 right now, says its going to be a huge 46!

Now it is my turn. I truly think I am in the wrong business. It appears to me
any thing that has to do with weddings makes money. Also plumbers make
good money, since I just had a leak fixed. You pay for the destruction of the
wall to locate the leak. Then he fixes the leak and leaves a hole in the wall.
Now I have to have the wall fixed where he created the hole. :angry: I can
say at least the leak is fixed, with very little water damage. If I had known
where to look I could have done the job for a lot less myself.

Well, I can now say the leak is gone. We are now in the process of ripping out the carpet in the bathroom
and replcing it with tile (not sure why the previous owner had carpet in the bathroom :unsure: ). The first
step of installing tile has been completed. Now waiting for it to set before we can add the grout.

Looks like I would be buying any new hardware or software in the near future, except for the Canon DV camera.

the only problem with doing the work yourself is there is no warranty for your craftsmenship. The satisfaction is nice, but of something goes wrong then you could end up paying more. thats kinda cooky, carpet in the bathroom?

I can see carpet in the dry area, but in the wet area. No way!

Tile of any kind is better, than carpet. Using a throw rug can give
you that carpet feel.

clean up and painting. The bathroom is a lot brighter now. :)

Still more honey dos to do, very long list. :(

Next project after cleaning up the bathroom, is removing the remaining
