Goodbye crappy old PC, Hello Macbook Pro

When my mom asked what I wanted for christmas, I told her the only thing I really wanted and needed was a contribution for saving up for a new computer, as my old one was dying a slow and annoying death by deleting my files and constantly showing me its blue screens of death. She knew I`d always wanted a Macbook, but I didn`t mention it because it had never been something that I could afford. I was thinking about one of those cheap computers that lasts 2 years, tops. But one day she had one of those funny smiles on her face, when she has some good news she wants to share. And that`s when she told me she wanted to give me a Macbook, seeing I needed something more solid for my schoolwork.

Only downside was that I had to keep it a secret from my siblings. My brother would probably have been happy for me, but my sister. Oh my. If she had known that I got something as expensive as that, all hell would break loose. I guess you`re all probably imagining my sister being younger than me, but that`s where you`re wrong. She`s 37 years. But acts as an immature and selfish 14 year old spoiled brat sometimes.

But enough about family. I`m just so happy for this incredible gift, and I`m definetely going to make the most of it, and it`ll hopefully last for many years! Have to say it`s a relief not having to worry if mandatory essays suddenly goes missing, or losing some research because the computer says adieu. I`m already feeling much more inspired to write my bachelor thesis. Though ask me again about that in a couple of months when I`m all swamped with schoolworks and obligatory essays.
