So last night my laptop died because I didn’t plug it in. The Pixelbook has this quirk that after the battery dies when you first plug it in to outlet the keyboard will flash every couple seconds instead of giving you a charging symbol.

I woke up in the middle of the night to a spare mattress I had propped up against my wall falling on top of my head. It was quite large and in my shocked response I hopped up and managed to knock my laptop off my bed onto the floor and step on it. I […]

Just got word that I’ve been accepted into an Occupational Therapy Assistant program at the local college for the Fall.
