That's nothing on this dinosaur that I'm using - often it would take longer than that! Anyhoo, I will be saving up for a good computer with a dedicated video card and not just the dinky integrated graphics chip. Even if it does cost more, it would be worth the longer wait.
Been finding that chopping up long-term goals into smaller ones (like making six eBay listings a day for thirty days) can help a lot. I've just been so depressed as of late. Not the boo-hoo depressed but more like I just wasn't up to doing much else other than playing some windows game like Ants (this castle-building card game which is quite addictive) or FreeCell and listening to YouTube Reddit narration videos while stuffing my fat face with junk food. Just didn't have any motivation and when I tried, I would take lots of pictures of the stuff I wanted to list, then I'd end up forgetting about half of it and then make a fine mess. Making drafts, then taking pictures later on and then finally finishing the listings was so much easier. And I figure if I can get my ass in gear like this in the long term, I can get myself a nice computer and not have to rely on old machines people are throwing away.
And yes, I know it sounds kinda dumb coming from someone my age, but I've had a lot of weird issues growing up like Aspergers Syndrome which has made it hard for me to get and keep a job. And the things I fixate on are *rarely* beneficial in any way. (and yet, I am still quite conservative or at least libertarian hy-yuk!)
But anyway, thank you for the advice!
