  1. Pshh... It's fine lol No worries c: Computer is acting up .. Dramatic exhale of breath.. Bumpity Bump~ This is acting funny..
  2. I'd put 500,000 in my savings account for when I go off to college.. 100,000 for my mum and 100,000 for my pee paw Donate 50,000 to either Stem Cell research or to a Foster Care/Orphanage 50,000 on gifts for my whole family.. another 50,000 to have an amazing vacation and I guess stowaway the last 150,000 for retirement/Emergencies..(And purchase a teacup pig..) yes I do constantly thinking about winning the lottery.. Dont judge me..
  3. :P I'm trying. Just seeing that I have a little progress helps Female* And I do not partake in such vulgar after hour activities * - * on weekdays..
  4. You're so talented! I tried with photoshop/gimp, and clearly, it's not for me lol..
  5. Thanks! Lol I hope so!
  6. Nvidia GTX 680MSLI -Although by time I get the money, I'll either get the 690 OR the Devil 13 1.5 TB Raid- 3 Drives 32 GB of RAM,although I'm not sure that's necessary.. don't think so.. The reason why it's so expensive is because the 4-year warranty is $614. I have 4 brothers, 3 out of that 4 are known from stealing from me, not only that but breaking the stolen/borrowed things, and a cat that chews through wire and also known for tearing apart a christmas tree... Things happen. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
  7. Shanksh (: I know it'll be worth it lol. I've wanted this, the laptop and a job, for awhile c:
  8. I shall! Currently making a progress bar. :)
  9. I basically screamed (Yes my laugh is more like a cry for help sometimes) when I read this, brought tears to my eyes. My confession.. If drink something of like my brothers, I fill up what I drank with water or milk so they don't notice.. ".....Right in your eyes" - Dave Chappelle
  10. Thanks so much you guys! This is a lot more posts than what I had expected I appreciate the very kind words of support c:
  11. Thanks, so much! Im applying to be a Cashier at Michaels.. arts and crafts :P Thanks a million! (: Thanks for the advice lol. I'll do my very best!
  12. Thank you both! Very much <3
  13. Hi, Y'all! Lately,I been needing encouragement... I'm a youngster, who just recently applied to her first job, fingers crossed and all.. (Hopefully) When I get this job, I plan on purchasing a Alien laptop (I am aware, there are cheaper ones that would do the job just fine, I am just buying it for the name , plus I like the purtay colors) I decided on Alien, because I've never really been able to buy something that expensive and would enjoy treating myself. Which rounded up, would be $4,200 I'm assuming I'll be getting minimum wage ($7.25) I keep doing the math and.. it'll take awhile.. Being a sophmore in High school with AP Classes and Soccer tournaments for the spring on weekends, is going to be quite tiresome... I keep thinking about how long it'll take and get so discouraged, but I really want this, and if I get the job, I will commit to the many months.. I want this so bad because I've always wanted a nice computer, So I can fully enjoy gaming 4 Grand is too illogical to even dare ask my mother, she does raise eyebrows at such a price for a machine that isn't a car I come from a family where if you want something, you better work hard for it. There is no shortcuts That's my short story. I'm just looking for I guess support, some "You can do it!" would be nice and very much appreciated.. But it can also be a thread where you can post about something you need help being motivated with. I guess I'll keep progress here and edit it as I go on..
