Well, I have given up on my Nexus 5 phone...I've replaced the on-switch, the battery and the USB port...and it is still flakey. It gave me some good usage...but it's now time to move on. I have replaced it with a second hand Samsung Galaxy S5. The build quality on the Samsung phones are so much better than the LG, who made the Nexus 5 for Google. The S5 is nice, and I got it for $160 used. With any luck, it should last me at least a year or two!! The other thing is that the radio/antenna in it is much better any of the previous phones I have had. I can get a decent signal down in the basement of Willowdale with it! No more dropped calls because I twitched slightly!
Yesterday, I started sorting out my clothing. My dad was a "clothes horse", and had complete wardrobes for all seasons! So he bought me a lot of clothes. I had *13* garbage bags of clothes when I moved into Willowdale....So yesterday, after fighting off heat stroke and the like, I managed to sort through 6 of them. I reduced it all to one bag of clothes I can wear/use now, one of winter stuff (sweaters, etc), one of "memorabilia" consisting of t-shirts from various concerts and conventions I have attended...most of which won't fit me anymore, but I want to keep them anyways. Now I have two bags of stuff to get rid of...one that is going straight to charity...and other that a couple of people want to dig through...then the remains will hit the charity circuit! So 6 bags down to two and a half bags (the t-shirts *don't* fill the bag, or close to it!).
Tomorrow is my counsellor session...originally, my roomate, Willow, was going to drive me, then he was going to go to a high school reunion...so I was stuck taking the bus...the office is in Hazeldean...and I"m in South Keys...now if there was a bus that went straight across Hunt Club...I could be there is three quarters of an hour...but under the tender mercies of slow speed transpo, it takes almost two hours to get out there!! And that's if i don't miss any connections!
Luckily, for me anyways, Willow decided not to go...so it will only take me 35-40 minutes to get there! Thank you again, Willow!!!
