It was early in the morning on a very sleep deprived day that I drug myself to the post office and got my passport. I brought my picture, SS card, and birth certificate with me. Filled out the information, and let them borrow my original birth certificate (I guess they need it for verification) and went home. About 10 or so days later (a lot sooner than they said) my passport arrived in the mail and about 5 days after that my birth certificate got returned to me as well.
Now I’m all ready to go to Germany in a couple weeks! :D 14 months ago
One of my most frequent problems is that I will run out of space. A few excellent space visualization tools are:
also Mindgem’s Folder Size: http://www.mindgems.com/products/Folder-Size/Folder-Size.html
Another all around great tool is Piriform’s CCleaner (http://piriform.com/ccleaner/), as well as getting your computer to run smoother it is great for managing what programs start up when your computer does. Disabling many of the unneeded ones will make your computer load your user account faster, and free up visual space when all of these programs aren’t popping up all over the place.
Another simple tip that is sometimes overlooked is your desktop background. Change your desktop background to a picture that isn’t too “busy”. If you find your eyes straining at all to read your icons you very well may have a busy background. Change it to something simple. Scenic landscapes are excellent. If you want a picture of your loved ones, find a picture that doesn’t has a simple background behind them, maybe even crop the picture to position it so that your icons don’t land on their face.
Maybe there are some files you don’t need anymore?
In windows 7 you can easily search for files by specific filters such as:
datemodified:1/1/1996 .. 12/31/2008 which selects all old files modified between 1996 and 2008!
or find large files with: size:>100mb
I hope these ideas can help you in the weeding out and organization of your computer!

That’s the best piece of advice I can give! Just try your had at it and keep on trying. I’ve made over 4000 beats/ideas over the last 10 or so years and have released only about 20 songs. I just keep persevering until I come up with something excellent. It’s also the best way to get better. :)
If you’d like some help on recommended software or how to use a tool in a certain software, I’m quite technical expert (Especially in Cubase, FL Studio, and Acid Pro) and am always glad to share my knowledge. 15 months ago
A candle company that you should check out is Candles by Victoria! It’s amazing! Very reasonable prices and a gargantuan selection of amazing scents that are very powerful but not overwhelming…not to mention that Victoria is a total sweetheart. I hope that helps.
