My computer has been getting blue screens and being “unable to find the boot drive” since early this month, and I finally gave up on it. I’m currently waiting to see if I can get one refurbished from a local company.*
*Update right after posting that: I just found out that the company has the computer I was hoping for in stock!! I’m so excited!!!! o(^▽^)o
In the meantime, here is my current Skype setup for my online Japanese lessons. I had to attach it to my necklace holder with rubber bands so it faces me while I’m reading from my textbook and stuff. Too cool for school, right there.
Another reason it’s good to have a smartphone in Japan: so that when your computer dies, you can still Skype your family on weekends.
