this past weekend.


I had goals this weekend. serious. goals.
one of them included finally buying a MacBook air.
since I used a mac when I interned a few years ago
in a marketing & communications department,
I had been wanting one for myself.


the problem?
they're expensive.


for the last three years, I had known it was going to happen.
as a writer, the mac felt right and as someone who wanted
to learn about photoshop, the MacBook seemed perfect
for just that.


so Saturday, I got up, ran some errands which included the apple store.
I had it all picked out and after an hour or so of issues,
{apple store had problems that day...should have taken it as a sign},
my MacBook was in my hands and I was on my way home to obsess.


when it came time to open the box up {which is fancier than any packaging I've seen}
I opened it up and was sad to realize how little excitement I had.
I brushed the doubtful feelings aside and turned that baby on.
playing around with it, it felt familiar and I thought, "I could do this."
then I opened iTunes. and that is when it hit me......


how can I copy a playlist to a CD when there is no place to insert one...?
oh, how I was disappointed, but happy in a way, too.
I had doubt for a reason and I should have listened to it.


so the next day, I took the walk of shame back into the apple store.
sucked up my frustration as the guy who processed my return gave me a look
and I walked out of there happy with my decision.


so now...now, I am on the hunt for a computer. but not a mac.
anyone else have to recently make some hard decisions?

  1. I didn't know that Mac airs don't have a place to put CD's in. You should get a Macbook Pro ;)

  2. I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who didn't know! I felt so silly and that walk of shame to return it was awful, LOL. I am definitely considering the pro :)
