For those few of you who do read my blog, I apologize for the lack of posting last month. I am really being hounded by deadlines right now. I have been out of town for Christmas and I have to have my course in Biblical Hermeneutics written and sent by Feb 1, I have 60 Amos exams to grade by next week, and we’ve just begun a new series at Encounter on James so I have had to gear up for that the past few weeks. I will be back…promise. Pray for my next month as I finish up all these projects and take a break for a few months! [And by break I mean focusing on my pastoring, taking only one class, and only being a TA for Mike’s OTI].
You can ask most people that know me…I am not one for change. I have only eaten one flavor of snowcone since like 5th grade. I don’t write in blue pen. I only eat vanilla flavored ice cream. If it’s been part of my routine for a while, why mess with it? Plus, when you’re OCD, things like this tend to happen.
Anyway, about a week ago, I got a new Mac. I have never owned a Mac but have always wanted one. It took me a few days before I even opened the box when it came in because I started to realize how much I’d have to learn and change with a new laptop. All my Hebrew & Greek shortcuts and fonts would have to be redone, all my favorites would have to be re-entered. I have to admit that a few hours after booting up, I was ready to send it back and just go get a Vaio. Everything’s just so different. Why can’t you just ‘right click’ on it? Why do you have to go up to “Quit” on everything instead of just hitting the x? These were my frustrations. But alas, after another few days on here and in anticipation for getting an interface so that I can record my own music (a major reason I opted for the Mac in the first place), I have finally warmed up to the Mac as of today. I am still not a Mac-head but if any of my Mac-owning friends are a vision of what’s to come, then I am soon to be a PC basher as well.
*By the way, major props to my wife. She actually got my friends and family to send money for my birthday so I could get a new laptop since mine had major issues. Thanks love.
