I've had a couple of good and bad things happen the past week or so.
First the good news: after about half a year of infrequent playing, I've finished the 20th Anniversary Edition of the first Final Fantasy! Bloody 20,000HP Chaos... anyway, to celebrate, I have started playing Final Fantasy IX. After an uncertain start I think I may be getting the hang of it.
Now the bad news: after almost exactly 1 year, my laptop's power adapter has failed. Whenever it's plugged in now it gives off a beeping noise and doesn't power my computer. My usual methods of fixing this kind of thing (unplugging it then plugging it back in; unplugging it, leaving it for a while and then plugging it back in; and finally hitting it with my hand) didn't work, so I had to order a new one. Luckily I'll be moving back to university on Saturday, so I'll be able to use the computers there until my new power adapter arrives, which should take about 10-14 days.
In other news, CT scans of your jaw are quick, painless, boring, and itches on your leg during them are quite annoying as you can't move until it's done.
