Trip Home

Well, I'm back at here at LU after going home for the weekend. It's strange, really. No matter where I go, I always seem to miss the things I left. I guess that is just how life is. It's usually either people or familiar places. This weekend, I missed having a half-decent computer.

I usually don't complain about the computer at my house because I don't expect much from it. After all, I live in the middle of nowhere. Naturally, my (dial-up!) internet connection is horrible. But I've grown accustomed to that and have become grateful for the much faster speed at LU. I know there are plenty of people here who would laugh at the speed of our connection here, but I am not one of them. However, the real reason that I missed the computer I have here at college is the incredible number of pop-ups that appear while I'm on the internet. Thanks to my sister's constant downloading of stupid crap, I am now knowledgeable about home loans, insurance, and penis enlargement ads. Doesn't matter if I delete the crap, it is always back the next time I go home. So, next time I go home, I will probably spend most of my time searching for a decent pop-up blocker.

Honestly, what are these companies and people thinking? They can not honestly believe that the benefits of interesting a few people into purchasing an item is worth the consequence of so many people who will forever have a connection between their company and an annoying pop-up ad. I will never purchase anything from one of those things. Never.
