Why not just buy an SSD for it? The performance an SSD can offer you is so highly underestimated. It's not even the transfer rates that are so amazing. It's the access latencies. <.01ms :O

But they're so expensive! I'm not even sure if I'm going to upgrade. If I do I'd probably get a WD Black or a Seagate Momentus. Not sure about space yet.

I can kinda tell what's happening in that picture lol. You should prolly turn the monitor off if you're gonna use your phone as a camera.

I still need a new desk for my mom's house. I just cannot find one I like that will actually fit in the room.

Pictures will come out better without a light source facing the camera.

I mean that's all I can really make out. The rest of it is really dark.

About to start applying the third coat of paint in my room. I'm still kinda creeped out by how the pepto bismol color turns into maroon.
