I got into a car accident today. Ugh.

Thankfully, I'm not injured, nor were the people in the other vehicle. But I just feel TERRIBLE. Why? It was my fault.

I'm to blame for this.

What happened was I was on my way to DeVry, and there must've been some road work down the way (on Dunlap Ave.) so there were signs for the right lane to merge into the center lane. And because of this, I wasn't sure if I would be able to use the Dunlap entrances into DeVry, so I decided to use one of the other roads that surrounds DeVry (22nd Ave.). But as I tried to turn onto 22nd Ave., I couldn't seem to slow my car down. I got a bit panicked and lost control of my car, and hit another car head on.
I have a tendency to overreact to things, and I just started crying about this. Hysterical over what this was gonna cost me. Yes, the most important thing is that noone was hurt, but let's face it: living is EXPENSIVE. I was just worried over how this would affect my insurance rates, and how much it would cost to have my car repaired (and the other person's).

Damage to their vehicle was minimal. Damage to my car was... not so minimal. When a sedan (my car) meets an SUV (their car)... the SUV usually wins. Their front bumper was dented in a bit, but the front end of my car was pretty badly messed up. I think one of my headlights broke off... the hood's all dented... the Ford logo is missing from the grill... and other stuff...
I'm not entirely sure of the extent of the damage (I've yet to have someone look at it. It was towwed away to a body shop, though), but it didn't look good. My engine had a lot of steam coming from it, and a lot of oil was dripping onto the road...
My mom says not to worry too much, that perhaps all that happened was some hoses were busted and not any engine parts... I sure hope so... I really liked that car, and I'd hate to buy a new car AGAIN.


... And I STILL don't have a job, GODDEMMIT. >_< WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!?

... Relax, man, relax...

Thankfully, I can take some sort of defensive driving class so that this will be removed from my record (and hopefully, not driving up my insurance rate by a lot... I hope)...

What an bad day...

Yeah. I'm still alive. You need to hire a new assassin, mm'kay?

Onto the following topics of no real importance...

iPod:
Well... I finally got one. Yay. Sadly, it wasn't a free one. Why? Because no one really wants to help me out.
So, I bought a 20GB iPod. I don't regret paying for one (sure they're a nice sum of money). It is pretty awesome.


PC:
My PC's been crappin' out on me lately. Wanna know what's been wrong? I'll tell ya what's wrong!
1) CD Drive. For some odd reason, it doesn't want to autorun discs with autorun files.
2) CD Burning. I don't know why, but it doesn't want to burn.
3) Music. Any application that tries to run music files (WMP, Firefox, etc.) freezes.
4) Movies. See above.
5) CD Drive (again). Trying to reinstall Windows 98SE wouldn't work for some reason. Trying to do so in DOS would just freeze, too.
6) MIDI music. Unlike the rest of the music file types, this won't cause programs to crash. However, no sound is produced.

Well, I managed to mostly fix it though. When I reluctantly upgraded to Windows XP Home SP2 (I've had a XP Home disc for a long time, and recently picked up a free SP2 disc). Why reluctantly? You have to understand that my PC is running of 64MB of RAM and a 530MHz Celeron processor. In other words: XP is frickin' slooooooooooooooow.
Still, it fixed most of my problems. Autorun still doesn't work. And I've yet to test burning.

You might be saying "Well, why not get a new computer?" Easier said than done. After buying that iPod, I have NO money. And I have NO job (I've been applying everywhere, and I can't seem to get hired...).
So, my plan in the meantime is to make backups of all of my files and the such, reformat the PC, and reinstall 98SE. Hopefully, things will run smoother this time.

... I hope...

Katamari Damacy. What an awesome game. Seriously. If you have a PS2, and $19.99 (plus tax and any other possible charges) then you have no reason not to buy this game. Unless, you don't like GOOD and ORIGINAL games.

I still want an iPod, and I've had no luck getting people to sign up via my link. Bummer. Won't YOU help?

Um... lessee here...

1) Happy 19th birthday to me. As December 31st was, indeed, my birthday. Hm. Nineteen years old. Hmm... doesn't feel much different than being 18, huh.
Well... for a birthday present, you could help me get a free iPod! :D

2) Wow. 2005. Man, that was quick. Hm... 2004 was alright. I got nothing against it, but now it's over. Time to move on, huh.




3) I no longer have a job. As my job at Kmart was only seasonal. And they didn't have it in the budget to keep the seasonal people, huh. Oh, well. At least now I have a positive work reference, which may make it easier for me to get another job, huh. Though, to be honest, I'm glad it's over.
Why is that? Due to the fact I was switched over to a different position. Yeah, the took me off of the register, and put me in what they called "exit monitoring." What it is: I check customer's receipts as they leave (Yes, just like Costco, Sam's Club, Fry's Electronics, etc.). Good Lord, I hated that job. It was so simple, it was boring me TO DEATH. Perhaps others would like to have such a simple-minded job (really, no skill is required to do this job!), but I like something that actually challenges me a bit. Something that requires SOME skill. That's why I liked being a cashier. I had to take training for that.
That's another thing, I wasn't really told HOW to be an exit monitor. I thought I was supposed to look down the receipt and make sure all the items are there in the basket, and nothing more. But I guess not, because the loss prevention (aka security) manager was telling me I was taking too long. Well, buh. So, from then on, I just took a quick glance at the receipt and the basket. At least it would get these jerk customers out faster.
That's another thing I hated about that job: A lot of customers were rude to me about it. Several people got angry at me, and said they'd never come back to Kmart (Good! I don't have to see your ugly face again!). Some people told me this was illegal (If that's so, then Costco should have been in legal troubles for years, ever since they still used to be called Price Club!). And one guy had the nerve to call me "dick." How rude. I think it was Randall from Clerks who put it best: "This job would be great, if it weren't for the customers." Truer words have never been spoken.
Oh, well. It's over with, and I'm glad.




Um... I guess that's about all I got on my mind. So, good day, and don't do drug! I mean, drugs!
