  2. haha I think she’s a little jealous actually 🙂 At least that’s what she tells me, and just keeps the fact that I’m an idiot to herself. I’ve got a “job” at school making $500/quarter, so this will be paid for by summer. She would probably do well to get a new laptop herself for school, but she doesn’t want to spend the money on it considering she’s buying a new car here in the next few weeks.
