Why I switched back to a Macbook Pro 💻

Good morning you guys! 

Happy Saturday!!! I’m so happy it’s the weekend! Do you guys have any fun weekend plans? I have a couple things to do, but will mostly stay at home because they are saying there is a huge snowstorm coming. In the meantime, I wanted to share why I switched back to a Macbook Pro! 

A couple months ago, I bought a Mac desktop computer and I LOVED it! It’s been something I’ve wanted for years and after I got my full time job, I figured why not just get it? So I did and I gave my old Macbook Pro to my little sister. I had that one since I started college, so it’s been a good 4 years since I bought it. It worked fine and everything, but I just really wanted this Mac computer! I thought it would help a lot with blogging and making videos. Which it did, but it wasn’t for me. 

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve had the Mac and I finally decided that right now, I need a laptop. I can’t take the desktop to the living room and use it, it’s impossible. The only place I could use it in would be in my office and I only go in there if I’m working from home. Which is why a lot of my blog posts were only posted when I worked from home. After work, I was too tired to go into the office and work on my blog which resulted in barely blogging. 

After a couple weeks of thinking about this, I decided to switch back over to a Macbook Pro. The problem was that I couldn’t keep both, so I had to sell my Mac. I ended up giving it to my sister and the next day I went and got myself the newest Macbook. I thought about just getting the basic version, but the price difference wasn’t that much of a big deal, so I was able to get the one with the touch bar. It’s really nice, the keyboard feels awesome, and it’s super fast. I’ve never felt happier to have my Macbook back. Safe to say, I’m in love with my computer once again! 

The Mac was a great computer, worked nicely with editing videos and stuff like that. There was no issues with it besides only being able to stay in one spot. Which I of course knew before I bought it, but I didn’t know how much I’d need the capability of being able to move around and bring it with me wherever I go. Needless to say, I made a mistake when purchasing it and I’m glad I was able to fix it quickly! Now I’m able to bring my computer with me on future vacations and anywhere I want! It feels nice to take it to the living room when I get tired of sitting in my office. I also started taking it to work and in my free time I write when I can so it’s just really a win-win! 

Maybe in the future when I’m able to afford both and I live in my dream city I could purchase a Mac again if I need to, but for now this Macbook has my heart ❤ 

Has anyone else made a mistake like this? Where you quickly realized you shouldn’t have bought something and kind of regret it? At one point, I just kept it to myself because my husband would’ve said, “I told you so!” Which he did… I should’ve taken his advice 🙂

Tips for happier flying and a more enjoyable flight! ✈️

We all get excited to go on a vacation and if we get to fly out somewhere we know that eventually it gets boring on the plane. On my last trip, we had a four hour plane ride and I was losing my mind half way through it. I wish I had a list of things that would’ve improved that flight and made it more enjoyable which is why I am making a list of tips for future reference and for anyone else out there that gets bored on flights 🙂

  • Download games on your phone/iPad
  • Listen to some nice, relaxing music – since you usually don’t have Wifi on a plane unless you pay for it, I download a playlist on Spotify to use offline
  • Have a comfy pillow or blanket with you
  • Bring a coloring book or download a similar app on your phone
  • Bring your favorite snacks if you don’t like what they serve on the flight
  • Meditate – I have an app called Headspace that is great for this
  • Use essential oils to relax you
  • Make yourself comfortable
  • Bring a notebook and write down your thoughts, plans, goals, or lists
  • Read a good book
  • Plan out your week/trip if you haven’t already or a future trip
  • Buy a crossword puzzle book – I got a set of 3 game books that had Sudoku, word search, and a crossword
  • Clean up your phone – delete apps you don’t use, organize your pictures, clean out your contacts list, etc.,

So that’s my list, what do you do on a plane to make it more fun or relaxing? 🙂

My Macbook broke :(

Helllooooo!

So, some shit went down today – my Macbook Pro officially broke down. As I was downloading photos and attempting to play videos and edit them, it just went white and I tried to restart it and it was just SUPER slow and wouldn’t do/open a thing. Going to spend tomorrow transferring those pictures/videos and finally getting down to start this stuff I’ve been saying I’ll do for weeks now. I’m really sad about my Macbook, that was my baby. But I got a new computer so it’s okay… sometimes we have to move on to newer, better things. 🙂

So just a quick update on what happened, I really was working super hard this morning and as soon as all of the pictures got transferred that happened 😦 I am hoping to just reset the whole thing and use it not for blogging/video purposes. I’ve been meaning to get this new computer for a while now, but I was just waiting for the right time. Guess this couldn’t have been a better time!

*Hopefully* I can get some work done tomorrow. Wish me luck!

See ya 🙂

It’s FRIDAY!!

Good morning!

Happy happy Friday! I’m only super happy because this has been like the longest week ever and I am just ready to not work for 2 days hahaha. I’m working from home (work from home Friday’s ofc) and just finished a great cup of coffee.

I gave Mirhad a great idea of making a coffee bar at our house. We found some inspiration from Pinterest and will be going today after work to buy the table we want and some other decorations. Can’t wait to see the outcome! I will document 🙂

Mirhad’s gma is coming over for coffee today, so before she comes we need to go buy her a present. We’re just going to have some coffee with her for a little bit and then whenever she wants to go back home we’ll take her. It’ll be fun since she hasn’t been over yet!

I’m just super excited to add something new to the house, it really has been coming along great. Just taking things one at a time.

I really want to start a Youtube channel, but I don’t know where to start lol. I don’t know if I want to start out with a makeup video or maybe the Dallas video I am making? This makes me want to work on my videos using a Mac desktop, it would be so much easier than my laptop, but Mirhad would kill me if we bought that hahahaha.

Mirhad has a haircut @ 1 so I want to go with him since the area he gets his hair cut in isn’t SUPER safe. I feel better if I’m there lol.

But yeah, I’ll try to update some more maybe tomorrow.

See ya! 🙂
