“I think that little by little I’ll be able to solve my problems and survive.”
~ Frida Kahlo
I remember last time I got a new computer. I held off upgrading for months because I hated the thought that I’d have to change operating systems and lose time while everything transferred and the kinks got ironed out. When I finally bit the bullet and got it done, even though I’d been excited to get a new faster computer, I hated the new one. It was different to the old one. Stuff bugged me about it. It was like a too-tight pair of new shoes that pinch harder with every step even though they had looked very nice and felt okay before you walked anywhere in them. Then one day, suddenly we figured each other out and it was all sunshine, unicorns and rainbows.
I can see how once this new laptop has been wrestled into working order I’ll love it just fine.
But still right now I feel like taking to it with a hammer. (Perhaps that’s just me being cranky because of Lyme treatment, or possibly it’s just because THIS TECH IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!) We had to strip it right back and start over again. And the fan is still noisy and it’s still overheating but we can’t tell if it’s a fault until all my installation is done.
Meanwhile, it is amazing what you can get done with a smartphone.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that this time tomorrow I’ll be waking up to the beginning of a much improved relationship with all this flash new machinery. Who knew so much of your life could be caught up in one small piece of hardware?
Much love, Nicole xx
