Dear Mom and Dad,
I know that you guys are two of my blog’s most loyal readers. Considering that I really don’t have many of those because I haven’t hit my big break in the writing world yet, I definitely appreciate it.
But here’s the thing. Blogs have been few and far between lately. And do you know why?
Because my computer sucks.
I’ve been blogging when I have spare time at work, when I’m desperately bored from my phone (risky because if my cell phone has spotty coverage, I lose what I write), or when I’m home for the weekend.
Again, this is because my computer sucks. In fact, I’m on your computer right now, Mom.
I have a 4 year-old Toshiba laptop that, while I loved it when I got it, is severely outdated. It runs Windows XP (which I believe is two versions of Windows ago), the laptop latch doesn’t stay closed, we’ve already had to replace the battery once, along with the keyboard, and my current problem lies in the fact that it refuses to run from battery power and must remain plugged in instead. But the plug must be positioned just so, and heaven forbid it wiggles even slightly because the computer will just shut off. It doesn’t have a built in camera, which is now standard on most computers and it overheats after I’m on it for about 45 minutes.
So, I think this is the perfect time in my life for me to finally invest in an Apple computer. Specifically, I’m techno-lusting after the iMac.
It’s beautiful. Look at it. It’s a marvel of technology and perfect for an early graduation present considering I’m taking an online class (that, well, I need to graduate) and that I want to be a writer– difficult when I don’t have reliable access to a reliable computer. We can fit a desk in my room. It would be perfect!
Think about it. And soon. ;)
P.S. Have I told you lately that I love you?
