Before I say anything, there was an actual rooster having a field day outside of my building on Sunday. He was sooo cute. 😀
Next, this month isn’t going so well goals wise, and I know I should be nice to myself and not beat myself up, and I’m trying not to. I’m just a little agitated over my inability to focus and be productive. But like, honestly, it’s okay if I feel off. And I’ll keep telling myself that until it sinks in. 🙂
The main thing that has me feeling off, though, is that I decided to replace my desktop (iMac) with a laptop (Macbook Air), and of course, shipping times have been a little slow. With better planning (or a crystal ball), I could have done something differently, and maybe my files wouldn’t have been homeless all month thus far, literally since the 1st, but the laptop should be here Friday, and I did choose to go without the iMac in the interim, so I did this to myself. I just wish I hadn’t. Ha.
Because I live on my computer, I don’t know what to do with my time. I don’t know what to do each day. The first couple of weeks, I was okay. It was even good for me. A little detox from being on the computer ALL the time. I started some French lessons on Duolingo. I watched some movies, some ice skating, some rhythmic gymnastics. I did some reading, and I’m enjoying that book SO MUCH! (Vampire Academy :P) But I haven’t wanted to do anything, because my normal schedule is super off. (Hahaha) So I’m reading barely more than a chapter a day. Which is fine. I’m an entire month ahead of schedule on my reading goal still, and I’ll definitely finish something this month, maybe a couple of things.
But now that it’s been a few weeks, I feel like the break should be long over, and I should be getting something done. I JUST WANT TO FEEL NORMAL! What’s wrong with that? 🙂
On the plus side, I’m actually using my television, which is great, because it’s really nice. Haha.
And on a random note, there have been LOTS of people on the golf course. One or two feet apart. Basically making out.
Anyway, I’m trying to use my iPad to do things, and…it’s fine. 🙂 But I wanted to talk about this computer thing, because I thought it might help me feel calmer. ^_^
I live in a relatively nice part of town, so when the power goes out, it comes back on super quick. If the internet tower goes down. They fix it quick. Benefit of living close to rich people. Who are off work and golfing and making out. 😉 But sometimes when the lights pop off and I’m on the computer, the computer also goes off, and I might be typing and lose something! Literally happened a few months ago.
Also, sometimes I’m tired, but I’m watching a video, and I want to finish it before going to bed, and sometimes I will use my iPad for that, but I’d rather be on the computer, because I’m addicted, and yes, I know, suburban problems, but it would nice to have a computer that stays on when the power goes off.
So, I didn’t get a laptop 4 years ago, when I last upgraded to get more storage, because I either couldn’t afford a hard drive that big on a laptop four years ago or it didn’t exist. I don’t remember. But lucky me! Prices have gone down since then AND it does exist, and my tax refund wasn’t spent yet, so I decided to buy a shiny new computer!!
I’m getting a snooty golden one, because I want it, and I’ve wanted a golden laptop for 2 years! I had a bronze one 7 years ago, and she was beautiful…and heavy. And she had a fingerprint reader! ^_^ And I took her to bed with me. 🙂 I miss that. Lol!
Hopefully the next post will be drafted on the shiny new computer. In the meantime, I will be playing Sims to distract myself. I have watched SO many deleted scenes of The Office on YouTube that I literally ran out of clips that I haven’t seen. The channel uploaded more though so… >.<
