Finally getting an upgrade! Just swapped to this iPhone 5S today, so this’ll be interesting. This is actually the first time I’m buying my own phone, so it’s a first for me. Still sticking to that Otterbox goodness; kept me out of trouble the first time around, and hopefully it’ll do the same this time.

 

So yes, this is my last photo with my old phone. Signing off for now.

I find that nowadays I get home, I just want to veg out a little bit and do something else than either be in the house or napping. I do get tired, but until I hammer out a better schedule, I hop outside just as it starts to cool down just a little. And since this is the end of August, it’s thankfully not sweltering hot when out here.

 

So often I have a soda, taking my saucer chair and lounging on the back porch with my Iconia A100 tablet, browsing deviantART or Houzz  (as you can see here). It is a little clunky but the Houzz app works beautifully, and it’s like browsing virtual housing without leaving your couch.

 

Time will tell when I finally start doing something in the evenings.

I was not getting a lot of hands-on experience cooking fish, but living on my own was putting preparing food more squarely on my shoulders. One afternoon I finally got an almost perfect mix of breaded, pan-fried tilapia. Flavored with paprika, pepper and salt, I absolutely loved this, considering the last time I attempted this as a disaster. As I’m moving out of my place next week after graduation day, this will probably be one of the last big meals I’m cooking here unless I can top this off with something else.

I was sleeping when I Dad woke me up, asking me if there was a gas station nearby. I check the GasBuddy app on my phone to be greeted by this. I had to screenshot this to show proof of this gas station; I’ve never heard of it before despite traveling here previously, and it was only because of that app that I now know of its existence.

 

The name itself gave me a good laugh. I’m not sure what El Cheapo sells, but they’re pretty low, considering the rest of the prices. But too bad, Sunoco has you beat.

**Technical note: the metadata on the screenshot shows 2:52AM, even though the actual screenshot says 3:52AM. This is because of Daylight’s Saving Time, and I’ll be sticking with the shown time for consistency.
