I’m feeling good today for three reasons:
1. I’m done working in an office! It’s great how much easier it is to face the world when you have things like freedom and autonomy. (Of course, I’m also unemployed now.)
2. I have a new computer! Actually it’s not new — it was new in 2005. I got it for either Christmas or my eighteenth birthday — can’t remember which, because the two are so close — and it crapped out on me two years ago. I faithfully hauled the thing around, and now when I actually need a computer again, I was able to get it fixed instead of shelling out twice as much for a new one. Go me! The dude at the computer store said it would only last a year or so, but we’ll see. He also said they were only built to last three years, and this one lasted more than four before it crapped out the first time. And overall, it’s six years old. It’s a trooper. I give it two years, if I don’t screw things up for it by spilling juice on it. I’m trying to treat it like the octogenarian it is in computer years.
3. It’s spring! You can’t help but feel good when it’s spring.
