I know half of you reading are in shock because I’ve been researching laptops for quite some time now. I bugged and bombarded people for months with questions and inqueries about Apple laptops versus other various brands. No matter how much I tried purchasing a cheaper model from one of their competitors I kept feeling disatisfied. Everytime I built up or added on to each model the price came closer and closer to that of an MacBook. It felt hopeless. So I decided to go for the best and most recommended for my career and major, a MacBook. As I saved up more and more money each week to purchase my dream laptop, I continued to research my choices in specifications. I asked so many people, you would’ve thought I was taking a census.
So months later my Aunt finally helped me finance my MacBook Pro on Wednesday. It has been a dream of mine since Middle School or High School. I had originally wanted a laptop because it was more convenient to use to type up my writing and papers for school versus writing things down on paper, or in a journal. Also by typing it in one attempt versus writing then typing it up afterward saved time. Plus, internet was at your fingertips no matter what your location. I also took pride in the inspiration that with a laptop at your fingertips the possibilities are endless.
I don’t know what it is about a laptop but it’s the perfect medium to express myself through. Not only am I excited because I can finally organize my immense writing collection but it also encourages me to write more. I’m excited about my laptop as well because now I can focus on pursuing my dreams more impetuously. I just believe owning a laptop will help me open and unlock more doors and opportunities in the future.
I want to work on designing and writing my own greeting cards or entering competitions. I want to organize my writing collection. I would like to write more old fashion correspondance versus writing an e-mail. I want to explore the various outlets I can pursue to achieve my dream. Be it writing articles as a free-lance writer, to working for a branch of the media, or possibly even doing non-profit or working solely for experience. The possibilities are endless.
Also in case I never mentioned it I’ve always wanted to own my own own photography and greeting card company. As long as I can combine both my passions, I’m happy. So I’m pushing hard for those dreams.
I also see my laptop as an opportunity to excel and broaden my horizons in my current job field, as far as promotion and networking is concerned. There is a lot I want to accomplish and I believe the best way is to put yourself out there and promote yourself and your words in as many ways as you can. I’m hoping someone will take a liking to my passion and maybe take a chance on me which I hope would lead to my dreams.
Well it’s time for bed, I’m falling asleep typing…Good Night everyone. And Good Morning to those just beginning theirs…
