I finally managed to get around to make this journal, also the fact this laptop is behaving now and allowing me to do it so is quite a miracle. I've been having problems with it for a while now but these last 2 months things have been gotten worse and worse. It started with this "crazy inaccessible and unreadable striped" screen and "restore computer to previous secure point" option as soon as I turned it on, then went from that to unexpectedly shutting down on its own once or twice, heck maybe thrice a day and restarting itself saying the computer hadn't been shut down correctly but these last 2 months have just been the most unbearable of them all, with the laptop shutting down on it's own more that 10 times a day, sometimes even 3 times on a row, and doing the restart thingy again with the same warning. Trying to draw on it just hoplessly and unthinkable cuz I never know when it's going to shut down, reason why I haven't been posting anything lately. From the times I've tried, I actually ending up loosing 3 to 4 sketches thanks to this darn situation.
Here's 3 photos I took of the screen just in case you're curious about the "crazy inaccessible and unreadable striped" screen I talked above.
Anyways, this is not the main reason why I decided to do this journal. The reason I'm doing it, it's because I wanted AND WANT to thank all the people that wished me a happy birthday, either on here or skype, and the ones that spoiled me with a gift or two (you guys know who you are), you guys made my day much brighter. I had a bad event involving my mom happening just a few days prior to my birthday and you guys made my day better with your wishes and awesome gifts, so for that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
