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!

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
