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.
