After a conference call, I put my laptop down next to my bed last Monday. The next time I picked it up would be last Wednesday, which is also when I learned that it did not work. The computer refused to load beyond the loading screen and alas, that was the end of my almost 3 year old MacBook Pro. All the files and photos acquired since then perished along with my hard drive. That sucked. But I figured out how to make the most of being computer-less:
I went to bed early.
No computer meant more time staring at mobile responsive websites and no.
I spent most of the weekend with my best friends.
One of my best friends is a Marine stationed in South Carolina so when she said she was coming back this way, my other best friend and I made room in our schedules to see her. This basically meant walking around the mall like high schoolers and eating dinner at Chili’s.
I watched Netflix.
My weekend also consisted of catching up on season 1 of “Being Mary Jane” since I apparently missed at least 30 minutes of every episode.
I attended my church’s summer picnic.
Though it was hot on Sunday and I could have been anywhere that had a decent air conditioning unit, I enjoyed the company and fellowship of my church family at our annual picnic/cookout/barbecue/function. I also invited my boyfriend and best friends so that I could spend this time with my faves too.
I basically found other things to do that did not require (a lot of) Internet access. I wouldn’t go so far to say I took it back to 1998 or anything though. It was more like a very long power outage. But I survived. And I also got another laptop today because, c’mon. I needs my access. #shrug
