Welcome to the Dark Side



Carnegie Hall!

choir, yankee candle, fundrasing and 2 more...
For my senior year of high school, our choir (along with our orchestra and wind ensemble) will be preforming at Carnegie Hall from April 11th-14th. This is going to be a really fun trip and a great opportunity to perform at one of the most iconic music halls across the US! However, trips cost money (of course), and this one is no different.
The holidays are coming up, (yes I know it's only September), but soon we'll see the turkeys in the stores and almost at the same time as those show up, the Christmas decorations.
Yankee Candle is a well known candle company in Pennsylvania (not sure about other places), and they help out a lot with fundraising.
If you like their candles, or gift wrap, or air fresheners, all I'd like to put here is that you do not buy their products from a store this season! Instead, please get those wonderful candles online, more specifically here, as getting them online gives me 40% of the profit for the tip, instead of it all going to the company,
https://www.yankeeca...froot/store.htm
(You'll need my seller ID as well)
Group Number: 990068389
Seller ID: Airen77
Thank you! :)
I just thought'd I'd leave this here incase any of you enjoyed this companies candles. (They smell quite delicious).

(I'm pretty sure this isn't against our rules, as I didn't find anything against it but if it is, feel free to remove this).


Adventures in Neurology

Posted by KyloRen, 11 September 2014 · 86 views
neurology, collapse, hospital and 1 more...
I had a seizure due to my medication in January of 2013. The MRI was fine, the EEG* and Video EEG* were both fine. Nothing wrong with my brain in any way...until now.

I randomly collapsed second period, which is around 9:02am. I had felt perfectly fine before I collapsed, just casually working on my English homework. I had also slept fine the night before. After waking up on the floor, there was a large termor running though my arms. It took our school nurse at least 5 minutes+ to get there, because her office is now in our science wing, which is not connected to the main building. (The schools undergoing renovations).
I was a bit disoriented for about 5 minutes. I sort of knew I was at school, but still had some trouble recognizing things. I went home and everything was fine, except for a small fever of 99 degrees.

The next morning: I eat breakfast and start to walk to school, and then become mildly disoriented during the walk. Just things seeming a bit out of place and some fuzziness. It went away by the time I got to school which was about 30 minutes later. Then again, around 9:02, 2nd period, the disorientation comes back.

After a trip to the neurologist, I now have to have another EEG to find out what the heck is going on with my brain. At first they thought it might be the medication, which I was allowed to go back on because it only caused one seizure and I'm not seizure prone. For some reason, it was supposed to be at 100m and we had it at 200m, but that's because we don't remember the neurologist from January ever saying anything about a dosage. I'd been on that 200m dosage for about a year now, and it has never caused any problems, so the neurologist (the new one from the collapse), doesn't think it's the mediation that caused my collapse.

On Monday, it'll be back to Children's Hospital to have them stick gunk in my hair to keep the nodes for the test on. That stuff took days to come out the last time.

Hopefully, this time we'll get some answers and not a "nothing seems to be wrong ", when it looks like something is actually wrong.

*An EEG is a test where they look at brainwaves. They flash lights, have you blow on a pinwheel, and you sleep (so they can see what your brainwaves do when you're asleep), to test for any kind of seizure or other neurological disorder. For the sleep part, you do have to be sleep deprived the day of the EEG.

* A video EEG is the same as a normal EEG, just done overnight in the hospital where they watch you with a camera. (No cameras in the bathroom though).
I had to have mine because I wasn't sleep deprived the first time they did the EEG, and thus part of the test wasn't done.


Computer repair rant #3 (I think)

Posted by KyloRen, 22 August 2014 · 173 views
repair, computer, apple and 1 more...
Got my macbook back and guess what?
Huge chip taken off the right hand corner that wasn't there when I sent it in
Webcam repaired when there was nothing wrong with it (I'm going to guess they broke that too)
Spinning Beach Ball of Death constantly and constant slowness

My computer isn't usable now because of this constant slowness. I can't send it back either because I need it for school, but not being able to use it is better than waiting 3+ weeks to see what they broke this time.

All I'm running is Chrome and it gives me that stupid ball every 10 seconds. I have no idea what they did to my computer but it's never been this slow before, not even when it was broken. If it has to be fixed again, I don't care anymore about price. All I want is a guarantee that my computer will be repaired correctly, and quickly, which is what I'm not getting from my repair company. The company isn't even an authorized Apple retailer/computer fixer!

A word of warning, if buying anything and they offer you a Sevice Net Warranty, don't get it. You won't get anything repaired correctly and repaired quickly. (I've checked their customer reviews, I'm not the only one who has gotten crap from this company).


Grandparents

Posted by KyloRen, 04 August 2014 · 135 views
grandparents, rude, family
We all have them, but sometimes they're not that great.
Mine grandmother is ok most if time,but...
1. If you buy something and you like it but she doesn't it gets taken back (never mind that you liked it)
2. She buys something that you hate, that you've said you don't really like (Never mind that you hate it and won't ever wear it)
3. She comments on everyone's fashion issues
4. She constantly calls my cousin fat even though she isn't anywhere close to it
5. She continues speaking on subjects we've told her we don't want to discuss
6. She can't figure out why you shouldn't say this out loud "is his wife white or black?"
My mom always says on trips that we always try and do what I want but that's wrong. We always do what my grandma wants.


Misophonia

chewing, sounds, smacking and 1 more...
You all saw my status upate about peopling chewing. Well, my annoyance actually has a name to it. Misophonia is when small everyday sounds cause an acute reaction in you.

http://www.nytimes.c...annoy.html?_r=0
http://www.psycholog...everyday-sounds

I have this. I can not stand being in the same room as my mom when she eats her jaw pops all the time, I want to strangle people over loud crunching notices, and I detest, absolutely detest, the sound of smacking.
I want to punch things, scream and strangle people when I get set off. And sometimes I can't tell them, "for the love of god stop smacking/chewing/crunching/ect!!!!" So I suffer in silence, digging my nails into my palms and trying to pretend I'm somewhere else. (Which never works by the way)
How hard is it to eat with your mouth closed??? (Which can be the source of the sounds, usually the source of loud smacking).
How bloody hard it is to not chew like you're a tiger ripping the skin of an animal?
If you are behind two closed doors and down the hallway and I can hear you...YOU'RE BEING TO DANG LOUD. I should not be able to hear you eating/chewing/slurping/smacking from another room!

And when you're on a flight that's 3 hours long, and they just won't stop. It's torture. I want to throw myself out the plane window.

Adventures in computer repair part 2

Posted by KyloRen, 18 July 2014 · 80 views
mac, macbook pro, laptop, repairs
By now, most of you have heard that my computer breaks...alot....
We sent it in 3 weeks ago to be repaired and got it back today. The work form says they replaced the keyboard and logic board.
However, upon start up the fan sounded like a jet engine and continued to do until the computer was shut off. Due to that, I took it in to Apple. Only to find out that the logic board, the part they say they fixed, IS STILL BROKEN. The fans were acting up because it was taking up far too much of the CPU's power. (Plus the whole computer was slow, slow graphics, spinning beach ball of death....). The logic board is the heart of my computer, making this a very large issue.
Now I have to send it back again. I have a trip comming up in 10 days, I have online school work to do, and many other things. Now I'm probally going to have to wait another three weeks to get it back. Hopefully, they actually repair it correctly this time and don't break anything.

Failing

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

Make magic real

I'm a high school student who lives with her mom.

Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

Doing things right.

You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

Defend the friend, and then possibly agree with some of it.

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Don't be an idiot when you're older.

Would you break the law to save a loved one?

How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

I hold grudges for a long time, but I like holding them.

No, and no.

Genius, I value smarts too much.

I was born this way. *sings*

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

Nope.

Loosing touch. The question doesn't say I loose touch with the one who moves away.

What are you most grateful for?

The internet and food.

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

Lose the old ones. I have things I want to forget.

How can you know if something is true, if no one has challenged it to find out if it really is true?

Has your greatest fear ever come true?

No, I haven't fallen off some high place yet.

Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

Everything.

No.

If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

I don't have a job.

I bought a flashlight with me.

If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

My dad.

Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

Depends if I'm that annoying "Oh, not them again!" like the Kardaishins (don't care how it's spelled) or not.

What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

Alive= heart beating
living= being alive + having fun

When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

Never, because I don't want to get hurt by ignoring risks.

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

Act differently.

When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

When my nose whistles, and I don't remember when it was.

What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

Do fictional characters count? Yes, tumblr, fanfiction, my signature....

In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

No because I don't remember what I had for breakfast.

Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

Depends if my mom wants me to do something.


Not again!

Posted by KyloRen, 26 June 2014 · 157 views
macbook pro, broken, again and 2 more...
Yes, my computers broken...again...
This time it's the keyboard. Enter doesn't work , the space bar acts like the backslash key, and delete acts like the key to turn the sound off. So it's probably keyboard and hardware now, if keys are acting like different keys. I did take the tops off to clean them, and now two of the tops won't go back on. I once again have to take it to apple. Sadly, I have a college visit tomorrow, and won't be able to get it in until Sunday. And again, my laptops out of waranty so we'll have to call service net to set up another claim along with the trackpad one.
Also, now the graphics are slow. I minimize anything and it takes about a minute for it to go into the doc, same with switching desktop screens. (Using mission control, I can have two desktop screens up at the same time with different things in them. Helps keep everything organized.)

Honestly, would it be wrong of me to ask apple to give me a new laptop even though it's out of waranty? I mean, look at all the repairs and issues:
HD X2
HD Cable X2
Disk Drive (which they broke while doing another repair)
Graphics Card
Logic Board (I think. It was with the 1st HD repair)
Trackpad
And now the Keyboard and some possible hardware issues.
It's only 1 year and 3 months old. I had to type this on my iPad.


My computer is fine.

Posted by KyloRen, 20 June 2014 · 146 views
computer, mac, trackpad, warranty
No not really
My macbook pro's trackpad is broken and the apple care warranty ran out. I have a 3 year plan from mac mall for service net, but I just called and my last name brings up the wrong people, and my computers serial number isn't in the system. We didn't get a contract or anything because we bought it though mac mall, so there's no contract number to provide. So, service net can not fix my computers trackpad. It's not a large issue I mean, the trackpad works nearly all of the time except for a few instances here and there when the mouse will do whatever the heck it wants. If this was my HD again, yes, I'd be mad they can't find anything on the warranty that cost $200 or so. But a trackpad that works nearly 95+% of the time, is just fine with me. Nothing major is broken on my laptop, so the fact they can't find my warranty isn't really that big of a deal to me. My mom keeps telling me to get them to fix it, and now she went and called them but they can't find anything with the info we can provide, and we're missing some info as well, so it's going to go the same way. If something major was broken, I'd understand her actions, but this is really quite miniscule.
