i'm gearing myself up for an install fest. i slept last night. now i'm up and ready to get to work making my poor Bollux not be so naked.
One of the other things that happened with the herpes was my copy of windows decided it wasn't genuine. Bitch, please, that's the only software i have that is genuine. Do you know, you probably do, that there is no uninstalling Internet Explorer? I come to know that and then promptly forget it every time something like this happens.
This is the first non-catastrophic complete obliteration of my computer that i've had. i can actually list the files i've lost on a post it. nothing. everything was backed up. the few images that weren't are available on livejournal in their manipulated incarnations, so i still have those. it feels pretty good. and i made some mistakes with software that i didn't need, so i can go on without that mess.
speaking of watermarking, Adobe should be the first thing i install. get that suite done and settled and then i can work on the rest. i am lost without photoshop.
i have office 2010 on Bollux now, though i have a copy of office 2013, and i'm wondering if i should change it up. i only ever use word and excel. i don't need them to be fancy.
oh man, my fonts are back to default settings! cool! i kind of messed up and deleted some windows fonts at one point by mistake. now that is fixed and i still have my collection.
so much to do. i didn't let myself think about it last night because i wanted a good night's sleep. now it seems like this wall of software bricks i have to take down one by one by unwrapping each brick and making it work before i can put it aside.
oh, cool. it's sun-in-the-eyes time. i sat on the floor specifically in hopes of the sun coming out from behind the clouds for this. by the look of the clouds, i have about ten minutes of sun in my face coming to me and i want it all.
software busywork aside, i have grown tired of waiting to find people on the net to collaborate with. i'm tired of waiting for musicians to find and be inspired by my stuff and put beats to it. i'm going to do it myself. it took me three hours to set up the software the other night and that is all undone. but while i had it up and running i was really excited about what i could do. so many drum machines in Reason. and i'm going to hone my skills as a videographer and do that by myself. i will set up tripods and just record blind at performances if i have to.
it's time to take my art to the next level. i've done all i can with what i know. i want to learn more and do more. i want to be in complete control of my art. so i'm going to be. fuck the rest of the world. i'll do it on my own.
