It would seem that the number of devices upon which I could be on the Internet and/or regularly posting here with is directly proportional to the frequency of those activities. As in, the more there are the LESS I seem to actually be around. I would apologize, but the lack of activity has been taken up by the frustrating task of setting up the new computer.
You would think the advancement of technology would make this process very simple but this has proven untrue. I suppose it’s the whole moving to a Mac, though, the actual transferring of data and settings went fairly smoothly. I’m still finding myself rather baffled by the new iMac at times. One thing that has been really throwing me has been using the trackpad because while it’s not complicated — and I’m finding gestures to be very useful when browsing the Web — it’s just different enough that it’s not the movements I am used to so half the time things are doing totally unexpected (read: backwards) things. I am definitely not helped by still having to use a PC for the time being. For now I’ve switched the mouse to left-handed, which has helped me keep things a bit more straight in my head.
The office has been the most time-consuming effort, which I expected. It’s been two-and-a-half years since everything in there was set up and so the dust accumulation under and behind furniture is ludicrous. Also, it tends to be the catch all space for assorted miscellany, like boxes from holiday gifts. So all that had to be cleared out before anything could be done. The dust is really bothering me, though, and so any effort I make is basically in 30 minute increments because that’s about the time it takes for my allergies to go berserk, sending me into a sneezing fit that seems to cause the dog great concern.
The rest of my time has basically been eaten up by school work I feel it’s an endless task presently and I am very much looking forward to the break next week.
