The purpose of this Blog

I created this blog back in 2005 because I had to for a class in College, but since then I have used to talk about various topics. It may not have anything interesting for most people, but that's because I am not catering to the masses. I am basically talking about whatever comes to mind when I think I know enough to talk about it. You will see that the topics are a scope of things that usually impact me. If you want more information and stories then you can stop by my website linked on the left. Feel free to comment and browse. I think some spam bots may have beaten you to it though.

Copper Beech FTW!

My apartment complex never ceases to amaze me. They are so poorly managed that truly any management would be an improvement. They recently handed out a newsletter along with a bill and a letter. This is the most correspondence we have gotten from them in the almost two years we have lived here. The newsletter was about their new property manager (the third since we've been here) and other new people they had hired. Apparently, (according to an article in the newsletter) since they did not have a property manager, they had not been keeping very good records of transactions; so very little if any. Examples will follow. The actual letter was about inventorying our furniture (we have a furnished apartment) because they did not know who had a furnished apartment and who didn't. Another article in the newsletter was about how corporate came down to audit and fix records that they had not taken. The article went on to mention that some people were behind on rent, but they didn't know who or how much. They also decided to inform us that our water bill has finally been tallied and totals 9 months worth of tally. The amount, $495, yeah not to bad considering we have 10 days to pay it. Now, granted we should have known this was coming and put money away each month, but we're college students, who puts money away for a water/sewage bills. If my math is correct it is only $13.xx per person per month, but it is still over $100 per person right now. Well, someday they will figure out what they are doing wrong and hire competent people and maybe that day we will get our floor in the kitchen fixed (lol that'll be the day).

YAY! My own URL

So you heard it, I now have my own URL. I am pretty excited about this and it shows the nerd in me a little bit, but oh well. IU is changing their web servers over the summer and all websites will be dumped. They are giving us a significant increase in space from 10Mb to 10Gb. Yeah I know, wow. But since I only have a year of school left anyway, I won't need to utilize the weird, possibly different url that they give us. I have my own piece of the internet to myself that I can post many things or not. So, the url, well you'll need to look to the left of my blog page for 'Website' and click the link and admire the nice clean url, although probably not as much as I do.
