I'm happy because the last day of classes for me is tomorrow and then I'll be free! Also, my teacher decided to change my semester grades to A's instead of B+'s so I'm a happy camper ^^

I did the calculations and my next paycheck should be the same amount as the ones I had been getting before having my hours cut last month!

I NEEDED THAT EXTRA MONEY YES.

I just got a commercial hair cut after approximately five utilitarian years of just chopping my hair off at home!
I feel special and pretty. ;w;

Second year in Uni starts in twelve hours... I'm actually kind of looking forward to it since I have such a beautiful schedule and I just can't wait to see my friends again. XD

Finished my last project and the rest of the week is watching movies and playing on my phone.
Then I'm going to China to revisit my concrete jungle paradise.

I just got my Yyynova Monitor Tablet today and spend several hours trying to make it work.
But this was so worth it.
It just feels so perfect, I can barely stop drawing.
I really recommend this thing. <3

My laptop has been having this speaker problem recently where it'll randomly start making a short pop noise instead of a sound, but the headphone jack works fine. Then it will randomly start working again. I've suspected there might be a short in the speaker wire somewhere. Also, the keyboard had gotten so much gunk in it I thought it might cough up a hairball.

So I opened it up and removed the keyboard... and decided to take off all the keycaps to give it a thorough cleaning (despite the risk of plastic things breaking), because sticky keys were plaguing me lately. (There are points where there has been no choice other than to remove a keycap.) None of the keys themselves were broken, but there were a few casualties with the little plastic components that hold the keys up. I fit were just one or two, I could sacrifice the parts from keys I never use for the keys I do use, but there were two many. And it included one of the spacebar parts. ANNNDDD I didn't even find any issues that would explain the speaker problem. :( I was definitely despairing for a little while there.

The plastic components that hold the key up are in pairs that lock together -- one is a little bigger and has teensy tiny holds on the side, and the other has teensy tiny posts in the side that go into the holes. In all the broken pieces, it was the posts that were broken. I tried looking at a couple other keyboards I had but none had the same type of piece. I do, however, have a set of teeensy tiny drill bits with a hand drill that I've used to fix little Nendoroid/figure parts. In the pieces with those posts broken off, I could drill a hole where the post was and then glue some sort of replacement (say, a small wire extracted from a twisty-tie). But drilling tiny holes by hand would have taken hours!

Fortunately, I have a Dremmel tool. I have used it much, but I do have an adapter that allowed me to fit this thinner-than-a-pencil lead drill bit in. I used the hand drill to make a little bit of a guide hole. (More of a guide dent than a guide hole. -- the plastic was hard plastic and it seriously would've taken hours by hand.) But once I figured out how to clamp down and position the plastic pieces, the Dremmel tool did a great job, fast! Then I glued my pieces of twisty tie in with cyanoacrylate glue. Annnd.... IT WORKEDDD!!!!!! I felt very clever (although it is indirectly informed by doing Nendoroid joints in the past).

I did this on Saturday, and would have posted it then, but I wanted to have used the computer enough to make sure that the keys that had needed to be fixed were truly working. I was so relieved! My laptop is my main computer these days, so it would have been awkward to have to plug in an external until I could get a new one.

Anyway, hooray for being able to improvise a few for tiny things! And no more sticky keys for a long time! I'm not sure how much sense this all made to anyone who has never popped keys off their keyboard, but, it's a happy ending. :)

The speaker issue I'll just have to visit another day. ^_^
