Life Happens

My theme this year is: I can do hard things. This is more of a school year theme, but it applies to real life too. Last summer I picked up and took the chance of a lifetime to live in New York City and attend a fabulous school. I knew it would be difficult to leave my family, but I never realized how difficult it would be to create an attachment to my new home. I spent a lot of months in a very unhappy place. I have since learned to love my new home and now that I am soon to leave, I have been having trouble coming to terms with that. Grass is always greener and whatnot.
I was speaking with my mom a couple weeks ago (when I first started this blog post) and I told her my theme for the year. Little did I know my theme would be put to the test. My computer died again. And it was in the middle of everything. Papers, teaching on Sunday, crazy work meetings, etc. I had so much to do over the span of a couple days and I needed a computer for all of it. I called my dad in a panic (I am sure he is getting really sick of my panicked phone calls). I was beyond frustrated and I decided to quit hassling with that computer and invest in a new one that better last me until my 50th birthday or I am going throw a fit.
I called a few of my bffs and we went laptop shopping. Which really means they flanked me while I assaulted the laptop guy with my endless questions. If there is one thing I know how to do, it is research a product. We went to a couple stores, tried every laptop within a 20 mile radius, and eventually found one that had everything I was looking for. Unfortunately, I switched brands so I am a little confused when it comes to working the new laptop.

Things I hate: When technology gives out on me
Other things I hate: How dependent I am on technology.
One last quick thing I hate: The fact that I don't know how to work my new computer. Should've signed up for the classes....
