Lady Luck Has Been On My Side

Lately, I've been quite lucky.. I randomly seem to be winning things. Now I'm not saying I'm winning massive amazing prizes, but every little bit helps.

A lady from Microsoft at university dragged me over to test some software, such as Windows 7, OneNote, SkyDrive and something else that I can't quite remember. Anyways, I was reluctant to do it, but at the end of the demos they tell you if you've won. The little prizes were sweets and USBs with little memory, the big prizes were laptops and an Xbox.

I happened to win a computer mouse, which I know doesn't sound like fun, but it's actually pretty cool. I'm the kind of person who loves technology, but I'm a bit of a destroyer (at least that's what my family nickname me!), and to turn my mouse on I've got to snap it in half.. which is amazing to me.. I get to "break" something in order to make it work! It's smooth to the touch, great to use and it's wireless!

You're probably wondering which mouse I'm rambling about it's the Microsoft Arc Touch (you can see a tutorial here) and at $59.95, it's not a bad win!


Wow.. I must be sad to get so excited over a mouse!

On another note, SkyDrive is really useful, especially for documents and creating groups and sharing word documents as groups on Facebook aren't really as flexible.


The other win, which I found out about yesterday was a £25 Amazon voucher, which is from a mini newsletter that my university puts out monthly. All I had to do was find the webpage with the love heart on (in aid of Valentine's Day) and email them to tell them where I found it - really easy!

So yes, all in all I'm a very happy bunny!
