As some of you may have noticed in my July Favorites post, I mentioned that I received my very own laptop! Well I'm here to
Meet Sammy/Sam/Bro. My baby.
This is what he looks like, and he is wonderful. Yes, he is a he, and yes I named my laptop like a freak. What's new? For some reason, I adore naming EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN.
Fun Fact: I was the first one to say, "You know that glowing hate orb in the sky? Well, it's like my son. Or sun, if you will." You're welcome.
I'm sure that there are some things that I will have to get used to, like how the touch screen is very sensitive, and how not all my programs are on here yet, but I am having a blast personalizing everything.
For almost 7 years (as of one week ago), I had been using a really old desktop computer that was moved around the house, but always ended up in a corner, facing the wall. As grateful as I am that I was able to have a computer basically all to myself, it still wasn't great feeling cut-off from the rest of my family/world/any human like. But now I can go to the park with my laptop and be like, "Sup? I'm just here to write." Granted, in a more realistic scenario, I wouldn't be talking to anyone, just hiding behind a shrub and typing furiously.
Sammy is lightweight, portable, and can be held on my lap. All good traits for a laptop to have. I've taken to sitting on my couch in my fleece, cat pajamas (just for clarification, the pajamas have cats on them. I am not wearing tiny pajamas intended for our feline friends) and writing/blogging into the wee hours of the morning, sipping on tea and feeling wonderful because I have a laptop!
This has been: An appreciation post.
