I apologize for the late post this AM and the lack of post on Wednesday. Things have been a little crazy around here this week…and will be getting crazier over the next couple months. ¬†Posts will be a little more sporadic over the next few weeks.
Today, I am in the process of setting up my 3rd new computer since mid-May. ¬†Quite a few of you emailed me shortly after I posted this post about my decision to switch to a Mac from a PC asking me to update you on the process. ¬†To update, I LOVE my Mac…even though I am on my third.
Let me explain…
The first one was a 13″ Macbook Pro, it was the perfect size and ran beautifully, but unfortunately was not powerful enough to run all of the large programs I use for designing and installing simultaneously¬†. ¬†I upgraded to the 15″ Macbook Pro and loved it even more than the 13″. ¬†I was originally concerned I wouldn’t like the larger size, but in the end it wasn’t a problem, it was a powerhouse.
Two weeks after I exchanged the 13″ for the 15″ Apple came out with their latest model the Macbook Pro Retina Display. ¬†The specs on this computer blew the old Macbook Pro out of the water and with a re-design to a thinner/lighter machine and fancy retina display, which basically makes viewing ¬†all of your blogs even more beautiful, I knew I needed to upgrade again while I still had the opportunity.
After a 2-3 week backorder, it finally arrived Wednesday afternoon. ¬†I started setting it up last night, and hope to finish today before starting a new rush design this weekend.
If you’re considering switching from a PC to a Mac, I highly recommend it. ¬†Apple truly makes an amazing product. ¬†I have been way more satisfied with my computer (or 3) over the past couple months than I ever was with my long line of PC’s. ¬†I am usually not brand loyal, but I think I am a loyal follower from this point on. ¬†I am sitting at the local coffee shop this AM typing this post. ¬†The man beside me looked to his left, then looked to his right (at me), both of us were on Mac’s. ¬†We struck up a conversation about them and he mentioned that he read an article about brands with an occult type following…#1 was Apple.
Once, I am settled into this one a little more (I am not planning on exchanging again) I will try to write another post on set-up and exactly all of the things I love about it….for those of you who are interested.
I did not intend on this post to be an endorsement for Apple. ¬†I wanted to stop in and say that things may be a little more sporadic around here for awhile.
Silly me, I thought July was going to be a slow month, with no more DIY projects planned, I thought I would be going stir crazy until the move. ¬†I signed up for a new photography class, starting tomorrow. ¬†It is a class on Tabletop/Product Photography from Nicole’s classes. ¬†I hope to share some of my new tips with you. ¬†This will be the first time I have picked up my camera in sometime and I am hoping to learn a lot through the class.
In addition, to that class I signed up for Typography class from Nicole’s classes. ¬†Now, in addition to the classes, I am going back to WV to visit my family from July 4-18th. ¬†Alfred will be here holding down the fort while I’m gone.
To add to the craziness, I just scheduled another flight back to WV, early August, to work on paint colors for my client’s project I shared with you in January. ¬†The contractor is finally underway and we are starting the project again.
When I get back from the second trip to WV, it will be time to start wrapping things up to move. ¬†Again, I thank everyone who has volunteered to guest post for me while we move. ¬†I think you all will really enjoy the guest posts lined up for August/September.
Thank you for being patient, just when you think things are slowing down, it seems everything moves forward at warp speed again.
How is your summer looking? ¬†Crazy too?
