Movie Review: Brave

So, I went and saw Brave last night. Ill say this as clearly as I can: GO SEE THIS MOVIE. Especially if you are a fan of the older Disney movies. Of course the animation quality from Pixar is top notch, and Brave does not disappoint in the least. The characters look stunning and life like, the beautiful surroundings set in ancient Scotland are really breathtaking, making me want to visit it and see for myself.

The story is interesting and keeps you guessing on how they resolve the situation and the main character really takes charge and does all she can to see it through and doesn't give up even when things look their bleakest. Its like Classic Disney without songs. Thats as basic as I can get without going into spolier region and like I said, go see this movie. Sorry this is a short post, but what Im really interested in was the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph

Of Internet! It puts a big smile on my face knowing that I can use the internet all I want and pay a reasonable price for it, unlike Rogers...GRR...Rogers!

So, I thought I was going to be sneaky and sign up for internet from Rogers, which and get on their flexible plan. They started me out on 100MB for 21$ a month which was all right, but then I connected my computer and updated it and right away I passed that barrier downloading iTunes. The update for iTunes was 79MB! Right there most of my first plan was gone updating one program; the next tier was 500MB and I was quickly approaching that one too.

I investigated what I could do and get a nice even rate and good trade off between download limit and speed. Rogers sucked basically. They wanted 55$ for only 2GB a month! I was kind of shocked, but then realized that its not actual Internet that Rogers is selling; its connecting to their mobile network and using their cellular data as a internet connection. So I looked at Shaw.

Shaw wanted 55$ for 200GB a month! So long story short, I just had the Shaw guy here and he hooked up my internet, it took him less than 20 minutes and now Im surfing the web and can download what I want, unless I really push the envelope and download movies and entire seasons of Anime like crazy, but I figure if I only download a few movies here and there I should be fine.

I finally have Internet again! It makes me smile knowing that I can browse sites and update my computer whenever I want to, and whats funny is I totally broke into the second tier for my plan, which is 100MB. What can be done on 100MB? Not a lot; give iTunes and update and you're done for the month. Its crazy but its working pretty well so far, Ive got an all-in-one router-modem keeping me connected to the world, and its nice feeling connected again on a real PC.

Its nice to connect through your phone, but the rendering for webpages is all wrong and it just doesnt feel right when you're browsing on a phone. With a laptop, it works really well, and now I know roughly what I can get and what I should be getting from like McDonalds. Dont get me wrong, I have internet but its all tiered off so if I use more than 500MB the price of my plan quickly jumps up and Id like to keep it under 36$ since thats the 500MB limit. Meaning no netflix, no downloading TV seasons and no anime series either. Oh well, like I said, maybe Ill have to hit McDonalds and see if I could maybe torrent that stuff. Well, I plan on making a Wally World trip here pretty quick and getting myself a broom.

Yes a broom and dustpan. Also maybe some MISC. things for around the house. We'll see.

All by my self...

Hello world, i'm still trying to figure out why being on your own in your own place is cool. Granted I don't have an internet connection, or a comfy bed to sleep in, or pots and pans to cook stuff in. hrm that's probably why this sucks at the moment, but I knew this first month was going to be rough, I just didn't know how bad it was going to be.

I could steal somebody's internet, but that's a big no no and I know where to get cheap pots and pans but i'm also looking to save a bunch of money and get my car highway road ready so I can visit my family.  So I've got plans to put this all together and make it work, though it will probably start next month when I can get things to normal.

New place!

Yeah I took a bunch of pictures of my place, they are just sitting on my phone waiting to be uploaded into Facebook and my google+ account. I realize now how awesome living on your own can be! You can decide when to go to bed, if you're doing your teeth, what you're eating, its all your choice! I love it!
