a long week
It’s been a full week since I last posted. Things have been a bit crazy around here. Yesterday I performed the wedding ceremony for my sister-in-law, Janna. Weddings are wonderful events, but they definitely take a lot out of you.
In addition to this, Kent has been sick. Nasty sick. But I won’t give you the details.
About two and a half weeks ago, I got my first Macbook. I say first, because after just a few days of using it, I love it. Setting up my email was ridiculously easy. On my PC, I have to go into a settings menu and figure POP and SMTP settings as well as encryption info. Not on the mac. It already knew my email address because of the Apple ID I have through iTunes. I simply put in my gmail password and voila. It did the rest for me.
Things I love about my Macbook so far:
- Ease of setup
- Runs fast (we’ll see how it keeps up over time)
- Built in webcam
- iLife software (made Janna’s wedding video w/iMovie)
- “Wakes” from Sleep Mode in seconds
- iTunes actually opens
- Magnetic power adapter
- Built in Bluetooth (I can easily transfer files from my cell)
