The Anticipation


Well, I finally did it. I have ordered a new computer! After many frustrating evenings of restarting my computer half a dozen times, after getting tired of only seeing yellow, green, and blue on the screen, after waiting 5 minutes for a page to load, after not being able to listen to music or watch videos, after not having enough memory to download a single thing, I am getting a new computer! This is a picture of the computer I'm getting...I'm just so excited, I wish it would come today! The computer I have now served me well while in college. Many late-nighters were spent in front of that monitor, many thousands of my intelligent and thought-provoking ideas were typed on the keyboard. Not to mention, the computer only cost $25...you just can't beat that. But I'm coming to realize that if I want to even remotely keep up with technology, I'm going to have to swim a little faster, so to speak. I want to chat, I want to blog (on a computer other than my office one), I want to download music, I want to do online banking, I want to surf the web faster than at a snail's pace! There are people who would say that society has lived without computers and this type of technology for thousands of years, and I would agree. I really don't NEED to do all these things. In fact my life would probably be much simpler without a computer. But the fact remains that computers are here, and most people use them (in our society, anyway). I think that computers have made shopping easier, communication easier (and cheaper), and provide us with all sorts of entertainment just with a click (or a double click as the case may be). So I am going to embrace this fast-paced, ever-changing technology, and pray that this little piece of plastic/metal/fibreglass/whatever they make computers out of, will last me the next 5 years.

PTL for a new computer! Lord knows you needed one. Dags I can't believe you've had your old one for so long AND that you only paid $25 dollars for it!!! I don't think you need to feel AT ALL guilty about jumping a few technological eras and getting yourself a decent computer (a laptop at that=).

It's very pretty I might add.
