Let there be a place I can return to…
That line from the song “Motherland” (from Full Metal Alchemist) seemed to have stood out from the rest of the lyrics. It can be interpreted in a few ways, but my way of interpreting it was that of “Is there a place in this world for me? There should be, but I haven’t found it yet, and hopefully there is a place in this world that I can ‘return to’ because I would be lost otherwise.” Sounds confusing, right? I know, I’m trying to rework it. But that’s the basic of it.
Anyway, the week has been a little eventful. It really started on Thursday. My mom and I talked about Unorthodox Host over my plucked eyebrows. I explained to her that I’d like to have a web server so I can host more people (because my reseller space was running a bit short), and she was like “why don’t you get it?” I said because it costs an arm and a leg, lol. I explained to her that they run at least 100 bucks a month and that’s without the setup fee. She said, “it doesn’t matter, get it anyway.” Wha? My mom freaked out last year when I bought a video game online with my American Express card, but she has no problem with me spending over 100 bucks a month for a server. Knowing her, she’s probably going to help until I get some revenue from it (which I should), so I shouldn’t worry too much, even though I’m not working for another at least 4 weeks, and I won’t be having a paycheck come to me. Supermommy to the rescue! Hahahaha! Just kidding!
So basically after I put my order in, paid the 155 buck (actually I got it for 124 the first month) price tag, I waited for my server to be set up. It was set up on Sunday evening, and I’ve been playing around with some stuff ever since. Also, my nephews were over so they were helping me out with prices and stuff like that, because I was a little hung up in that department. (Hence, when you see a weird monthly price, it’s all their fault, lol. They don’t understand the concept of even numbers) With that, I bring you Unorthodox Host. The prices went up a little in some places, but that’s to offset the cost of the server, so I really hope that if you need hosting, you would consider it. If you’re going to say “Oh, that’s kind of pricy”, just remember: you get what you pay for. I know of a few hosting companies (both free and paid) that gets hacked so often that it’s not even funny, and look at the price tag…so yeah. I’m not trying to say I won’t get hacked, but hey, what are the odds?
Also, my nephews, my niece and my sister from Jersey came to visit. Y’all already know how much I love having company over, especially when it’s family, so I won’t bore you with that one again, lol. But it was fun. We ordered Chinese food (28 bucks worth), and we had that for dinner. Then I stayed up late with my twin nephews who stayed for a few days. One of those nights they were here, I stayed up till 2 in the morning (haven’t done that in awhile) trying to work out the Unorthodox Host layout (which I was ready to give up on when The Script Goddess came to the rescue!), and watching “Yo Momma” on MTV (That show is fricken hilarious). I couldn’t wake up the next morning, and I ended up oversleeping, but it was well worth it. I won’t do it again though.
My nephews left last night, so I just laid back, and chilled by myself. I hardly get to see them, so I was sad to see them go, but come next week, I’ll see them again, because their sister’s birthday is next week and she’s having a party. A bowling party. Oh yeah, time to kick some ass.
Well, anyway, that’s pretty much it. I’m going to finish up the stuff on the U-H layout, and I’ll work on this one’s layout, and I’ll work on U-o-Me’s new layout…yeah, you get the idea.
