The nightmare that is Windows 8

So it’s been a week since I’ve been able to post and I’ve been going out of my mind. Seriously. What happened? Windows 8 happened. When we initially bought this laptop I figured I would just switch back to windows 7 and not have to deal with 8 but NOPE Windows 8 partitions the hard drive (which does nothing for the performance) which means not only would I have to departition (Is that even a word? Can I invoke Creative License?) the hard drive, but I would have to go through a list of all the components to this laptop to make sure there are drivers for all of the hardware available for windows 7. Least to say, I am a little more than annoyed. I hate this stupid app thing and the OS was blatantly supposed to be for tablets, not a desktop or laptop with no touch screen technology.

So anyway, back to the story. About a week about the laptop started acting wonky, mind you it’s only been in use for about two months, it should not be wonky, and it was having a hard time turning on. So I went through and reinstalled windows, because nothing else would work, and got it working again EXCEPT now the wireless card wasn’t working. Well today my insomnia struck gold and I have no idea what the hell I did to make it work (really I don’t remember) but it worked. So I am not going to complain. 

So now here I am: unable to sleep, coffee deprived and nervous about my first day at work. When I return from the place known as work I shall write more!! Glorious!!!

Again, I totally apologize for the lack of posts. Stupid computer.

xoxoxo- NG.
