The power of thoughts

You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

-James Allen

It took me a while to understand what this means.

Linux again

It’s late and I should be sleeping but I wonder whether or not I should download and use Linux again. Last time I used it, I was running xp on an old laptop and downloaded ubuntu 7.04. I had the dual boot option and had even experimented with kubuntu though I notice there was more time and emphasis given to gnome version. I skipped the 7.10 install and waited for 8.04 The last version I was using was 8.10 and I was happy with it. Since then I have given away that laptop and have acquired a new one with Vista Home premium on it. I am content with everything on it, but I am getting the feeling that I need another OS just to make the decision every time I boot up.

The only thing holding me back is having to download some programs and configure everything on linux such as my email client. But then again, I should just get it and use it as a web browser and for office related documents as I don’t have MS office and wouldn’t need to download openoffice for vista if i get ubuntu or kubuntu. I haven’t tried Kubuntu for a while. I think that might be my choice.

So in the end, was it worth it? Jesus Christ. How irreparably changed my life has become. It’s always the last day of summer and I’ve been left out in the cold with no door to get back in. I’ll grant you I’ve had more than my share of poignant moments. Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime, I’ve left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there’s almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door.

Now the years are rolling by me, they are rocking evenly
And I am older than I once was, and younger than I’ll be
But that’s not unusual. No it isn’t strange, After changes
upon changes we are more or less the same.
After changes we are more or less the same.

Stumbled upon tumblr today and after reading some reviews, I couldn’t let anymore time pass by without trying it out.
