My consulting computer died last night. A slow, painful death. There’s just no resuscitating it at this point in time. So, I had to go and buy a new computer, because I have these horrible deadlines that people are expecting me to meet. I know, I am whining and I need to get over myself.
I wound up spending a lot more on this computer than I thought I would. But, I bought a quality computer, so I’m hoping it’ll last me for a long time. It’s DEFINITELY powerful. It will definitely get my design and consulting work done, and I can use it for class. So I’m calling it a good investment. Plus it’s beautiful and that’s a bonus.
It’s a MacBook Air.
I pulled the trigger and got a MacBook. I’ve wanted one since I was… gosh, when I was in grade school and Apple came out with those colourful MacBooks. Do you remember those that were white with a pop of orange, or blue, or pink? I loved those. I wanted one just because they were beautiful. And now, here I am, decades later and I finally got what I wanted.
Good things in life may take time, but they do come eventually.
Large purchases, like a computer, make my throat swell a little. I must admit, I don’t actually like spending large sums of money on one thing (I nearly had a heart attack when I bought my car). I much prefer keeping the money in my bank account. But hey, you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
If anyone has any MacBook tips, tricks or suggestions, I’d love to hear them. I’m flying blind setting this bad-boy up tonight.
On a completely unrelated note, I would like to say that if you’ve never watched Squid Game, don’t ever watch Squid Game. This show is not for the faint of heart. Save yourself the nightmares and opt for something easier on the soul.
