It's not an emergency but it feels like one

I'm writing to you from the Lenovo ThinkPad T430. I'm used to using a Macbook and I have used one for four years.

My Macbook isn't working. It may never work again. We're not sure yet. When I discovered the issue I discovered that I was yelling "No! No! No!" in louder and louder volumes before I could stop myself.

The anger that rises against the things that come randomly is a special sort of anger.

My poor boyfriend. We tried all manner of things together. Alas, his computer science degree was not enough to rescue the situation. He held my while I cried.

He left for work and I let my anger rise, just watching it and letting it happen.

It has run its course and I am left to set up this laptop as my own. I've also remembered that the Macbook was technically on a lease so it may be covered by insurance.

Most of my files are in the cloud and I am PC-literate. I have a roof over my head and money in savings and food in the fridge and people who love me. I have a university education and I work for myself and I do work I love. I'm losing weight and writing more than I ever have and sleeping well and reading good books and I'm in great communities.

But I still don't like how the Ctrl and Fn keys are the wrong way around.

    @rosieodsey <<Ctrl and Fn keys are the wrong way around>> 🤣
    After the hot tea episod, I had the keyboard replaced last month, and then a treatment against oxidization. External display can't be fixed, but that's a minor issue. Anyway, my point is, I totally empathize for your loss..

      @philh Too. Real. I think I'm going to force it to pair with my apple magic keyboard so that I can have things around the right way haha

    @rosieodsey Hopefully there is an Apple store nearby where you can have someone run diagnostics to see if you can get that MacBook back in business.
