Looking forward to Dishonored & RE6 & that's kind of it this fall, surprisingly enough. I never played the Assassin's Creed games, didn't care for Borderlands or Far Cry, Halo hasn't been interesting to me in years...yeah I think I'll survive this Fall. I dunno about you guys.
My beast of a laptop, which I built a few years back, is finally on life support & instead of getting a dedicated gaming laptop, I decided on buying a cheap laptop for word processing/convenience & saving cash to build a top of the line desktop later this year.
With that said, can you fine folks recommend some budget (I.e. $500 or less) laptops for me to look at? Definitely doesn't need to run games, but I'd like to have enough power to multitask & whatnot without too much hassle.
Even though it might seem like a lot, you're never quite given too much to handle in life. Seriously. We're humans, we're intelligent, strong-willed & all-around awesome. We can handle it. We don't have to handle it alone though.
Duder, I'm not going to claim that I've ever been as low as you appear to be now, but I'm going to try to give you some advice anyway, with something that helped me tremendously a few years ago. Contact your local Red Cross. Not to get help, but to offer them your services. I don't know what kind of presence they have in your area, but you should look into it. When I returned to the real world after a year in the army, joining the RC search and rescue team turned out to be one of the most rewarding decision in my life. I can only speak from my own experience, but I found good companionship there, a stimulating, challenging environment and maybe even a bit of a purpose. I learned things about first aid and search and rescue that I didn't know from before, I got to be a part of the process of saving lives, and dude, I got to learn to drive a snowmobile!
If you think there might be value in helping yourself through the process of helping others, I would really look into the options you have around you. And if not, let me just say. I've never met a single person whose death wouldn't affect someone in their life profoundly, even if they didn't believe it themselves.
I actually really like this idea. Remember, as horrible as you might think your life is, there's someone out there who wishes they had what you have.
