I went shopping for a skirt and impulse bought an iMac. A bit extreme, I know. Actually, I can't say I 100% impulsively bought it because I've been wanting one for a long, long time. Just after Christmas I almost bought one but having just spent £500 on Ikea furniture my bank account was really feeling it but I did tell myself that I would get one over the next few months.
With a night out impending, I took myself to Manchester to buy a new skirt and dangerously went to look at the Macs in the Apple shop. Before I knew it, one of the geniuses was helping me fill out my information and it was ordered.
I ordered it on Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday. Since then I've been pretty inseparable from it, I kiss it every morning before I go to work and at bedtime again. Jokes. But I do really love it.
I plan to make this my 'blogging' computer. I didn't transfer anything from my Macbook except the things I use for blogging and some of my favourite shows i.e. TVD, The Originals, Saving Hope because I didn't want all the memory taken up. This is my first experience with the new Yosemite software too, and I really like it. It's so similar to the iPhone software.
Hopefully this very expensive purchase will really inspire me to get my ass into gear with my blog. If this doesn't, I literally don't know what will haha. I've even bought myself a personalised mouse mat from Etsy, see here.
If anyone can suggest any ideas for a weekly reoccurring post like a series I'd be really interested to hear your ideas. I'm someone who thrives with a routine and without one I just crash and burn. At the moment I have no blogging timetable so my creative juices are just not flowing.
At the moment I'm thinking of maybe a weekly TA-type post, websites or books I've found throughout the week that are useful teaching resources. It wouldn't appeal to everyone but it's an idea. Or maybe a Week-in-the-life kinda post where I combine all the pictures I've taken throughout the week. That could go up on a Sunday.
Let me know if you have any ideas!
Thanks for reading,
