R.I.P Laptop

I think my computer deserves a good farewell/background story.  I got my laptop when I was a junior in high school. While I was extremely appreciative of my dad surprising me with a laptop I wish I had a little more say in what I received. The reason I say that is because my computer was 17 inches. My friend Lynn and I would call our computers the tanks because we both had large and in charge computers that would die in under 30 minutes.

For being a tank I felt that my computer lasted a pretty long time. Especially considering the fact that in college you use your laptop for basically everything. Academics, entertainment, and as a distraction, so literally everything. My laptop is particularly important to me, because it is something I have to have for my job. Working in social media means I need to have my laptop all the time, so of course when I found out my computer was donezo, I was a little sad. On top of that I miss Netflix

Thankfully Butler IT is helping me get some of the documents off of my old computer, which by the way everyone should use Butler IT. I’ve never had to use it before, but it’s a resource that I’m glad I know about now! To say everything worked out in the end is an understatement. A girl in my office is selling me her laptop so I’m glad I don’t have to go searching nine days before I leave.

It was a good run while it lasted tank, but I hope you rest in peace in laptop heaven. And if you are having a bad day just check out this video of corgis.

My Life Without Wifi

If you are not aware of the weather that is happening in the Midwest, you are either literally living in a cave, which I am grateful that you come out of the cave to read my blog, or you live in a different country. However for the rest of us we are aware of the snow apocalypse. In the Midwest we have been hammered with snow and now we are experiencing extreme temperatures. Today we were colder than the south pole… how does that even happen?

The parking lot at the Indianapolis airport today.

Within all this madness many people lost power. Fortunately the house I am staying at was not one of those, but we lost one major thing. Wifi. Yes, we lost the internet. I understand this is a huge first world problem, but when this storm hit I planned out days of Netflix. Not to mention a lot of my work for my job is dealt with online. Our wifi disappeared on Sunday night. This meant that my friends and I had to figure out new ways to entertain ourselves. I realize how pathetic this sounds, but in all honesty we had no idea what to do. We watched lots of TV and played way too much Mario Kart and Mario Party.

Today Kristina and I decided to finally venture out into the world. While the roads are not great they are at least somewhat drivable now. When we got back from our mini adventure Kristina saw that finally the wifi had returned! Finally I can finish some things I needed to work on, blog to you about the crazy snow, and go back to my life of being anti social except on social media. Just kidding ;)

Anyway recruitment training officially starts tomorrow, so no more snow days for me! I never thought I would say this, but I can not just sit around and do nothing every day. I was starting to lose my mind. I hope everyone continues to stay safe and warm!
