I am still alive here in Dubuque. I just got a new computer and it happens to be a really nice one. I bought it used but like new, it still had all of the original in store stickers on it. It has a 3 year warrenty which means that I will be able to hold on to it for a while, until it is obsolete. I will also be blogging a little bit more now that I have my own computer.
