I've barely been able to make time online due to offline stuff (physical therapy, meeting with people, papers, getting a wrist strain) and because of Roland Garros, which ended today on a very positive note! If you're a Rafa Nadal fan, that is -- back with the Coupe des Mousquetaires and being world number one! Honestly, I'd still be happy even if he remained number two; I just wanted him to win back the Roland Garros title!

That said, we're off to grass next! I wish grass had a longer part in the season. There's too many hard courts, I'm finding it a little...bleh, for a lack of a better term. There's just a lack of variety. The season starts with a hard court, then they cram the clay tournaments together, rush off to grass all in a span of two months? No, I'm not counting the South American clay court tournaments. And then we're back to hard courts. Bleh.

I'm still waiting for my visa. I don't know how long it takes for a visa to get approved because my friend got hers in 3-5 days while it's been more than a week for mine. Although I'm guessing they look at when you plan to leave, and my friend applied for hers just a little more than a week before her flight date, while I had three full weeks when I applied for mine.

I just wish it would come soon though, so I'll know if I should start thinking of what to pack and stuff like that.

Speaking of, we're buying a new laptop, and my dad's making me choose between a Lenovo Thinkpad X201 and a Thinkpad T410s. I don't see much difference save for the size and the weight. The X201 is a 12-incher while the T410s has a 14-inch screen, so obviously the latter is heavier. I'm just not sure because I've always used a 14-inch laptop, whether it's mine, my sister's or my mom's or even somebody else's, and I'm just afraid the 12-inch screen would look too small for me.

What would you prefer?

I use a 13" (MacBook), it seems okay, but if you're used to a 14", then it's a different story. Small screens are horrible.

Yeah I was just thinking I might be all hunched up and squinty. LOL. I know 12" isn't that small, but comparing it with 14"...it's kinda teeny...?
