Just got the new Macbook Pro and I don't think I've been this excited about a technology upgrade since I got the iPad, and the iPhone before that. Notice a pattern here?
It's so sleek and pretty compared to my fugly, overweight Dell laptop. The sound the keyboard makes when typing is the best sound ever, it's got a really satisfying tap, like a typewriter.
Apart from that awesome purchase, the other big thing that happened in the past month is I've started going to university.
(COMMENCE UNI RANT)
I miss my high school friends so much! I didn't move out to another state or anything, fortunately my uni is 20 minutes away from where I live, but I still don't get to see my friends as often as I would like. Everyone is really nice but I've only made acquaintances. It's really hard to get close to people because I only see people in one or two classes a week, plus our timetables are all different. I miss being in a really big group to have lunch breaks with! After talking to a couple of friends (who go to a different uni), I found out I'm not the only one who feels this way. It's only been four weeks so maybe I should give it time?
Another thing, I don't really talk much in tutorials, I literally become mute for no reason. This is unusual since in high school I'm usually the one being asked to shut up in class.
I have a feeling some of the students and tutors think I'm an non-English speaking student or something because I never open my mouth in class, unless I really have to.
Don't get me started about the workload. My academic readings make me wish I couldn't read. Homework and assessments keep piling up and I don't really know what is going on half the time. Plus I'm so unmotivated and creatively uninspired, I feel like I'm trapped in academia prison. It's funny because I'm studying things I love - writing, journalism, film and design - so I don't really know what is going on. I'm seriously considering dropping my degree after this semester and going to film school, or fashion design school.

Wow, that was a good vent.
