A few updates to report on. For one, I got my new Macbook and it is B-E-A-UUUU-TIFUL! If you visit the Apple Website you will see the new Macbooks there. Aluminum casing, glass screens and trackpads, it the the sexiest machine I have ever seen. And since I’m its owner, it must mean that I’m also sexy by association. Humour me, ok? I also decided to get the Apple Care to go with it since I will be dragging it overseas. In the short few days that I have had it, I have most definitely noticed that I am becoming more and more a “Mac Snob” everyday. No third party peripherals or extensions will do. Apple only, please! I also decided to buy a case for it – a bright pink one! Being a redhead, I don’t really get the chance to wear much pink, so I figure I can accessorize with it where I can. Another plus, I got the student discount even though I’m no longer a student! I knew there was good reason for carrying that old student card around. The new Macs weren’t as cheap as I originally thought they were going to be (it was the older versions that dropped in price) but it still makes me feel sexy so I bought it anyways.
Second, I realized I need to buy a travel backpack since the one I used for my earlier Europe excursions was borrowed. It was also a male version – meaning the straps didn’t necessarily hit in “all the right places.” Any suggestions on this would be really helpful. I’m thinking I should either do Asolo or MEC? I want one that is front loading and that has a daypack that attaches to it. Also I really don’t want to spend over $200. Please help!
Third, my hair straightener broke. I know this doesn’t seem like a big deal to any of you, and you’re probably reading this and laughing. I assure you – I was NOT laughing. If you knew what I have to go through with my hair, you would understand that this little piece of equipment is like my third arm, and probably just as expensive – $180! That put a little bit of a dent in the budget when I had to buy a new one. Dammit. But I guess its better than using the old one while smokey fumes emit from it?
Fourth, I have been working like a dog lately – 7 days a week, 9 hours a day sometimes. It doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for anything else really. I latch on to any moment of free time.
My Visa should be arriving in the next week or so, and then I can finally be able to tick the “Yes” box in the “Are you eligible to work in the UK?” question making it a lot easier to apply for decent corporate jobs with good companies. *crosses fingers*
Everything seems like its coming together nicely. Too nicely almost. There is bound to be a hiccup somewhere. And my hair straightener breaking doesn’t count!
