I love my Mac so far. I don’t understand the bad reviews of the Air. I know Apple hasn’t updated it in a while. But I love the sound, the screen quality (gasp), how fast it is, the battery life, etc. This isn’t an Air thing, but I love how I don’t have to unzip files with a program anymore. That is the best thing about Macs so far. Okay, maybe not the best thing because I’m new to Macs, but I love it.
I had to fix the trackpad settings because I hated how it came. OMG, it was the worst. It took me a day to figure out how to change it. Other than that, the Mac and I are getting along just fine. Well, I still don’t know how to do everything. I think I have duplicates of a few things because I’m not sure how files work on the Mac. Oh yeah, the camera on the Air is horrible. I’m glad I never use FaceTime. The camera on my PC is much better, but I knew that going in.
My HP is still my main computer. I did transfer most of my files to my MacBook. I did it with an external drive, and it didn’t take long at all. I’m going to take my test on my Mac on Sunday morning. I’m using Safari for now because I like it. I probably will eventually download Chrome.
Don’t tell anyone this but I already used iTunes! I listened to a Marianne Williamson talk with it. Please keep this a secret. I wouldn’t want anyone to know I might like iTunes. 😉 However, I’m 95% sure I’m going to use Spotify to listen to music most of the time. That is what I do on my HP.
I’ve been recently judging my mom so bad. I need to do Gabby Bernstein’s Judgment Detox again. I feel so horrible when I think bad things about her…sometimes. But other times, I feel justified. I’ve been listening to Marianne Williamson, and sometimes I see the innocence in my mom. How do you forgive someone when they keep doing the same ‘bad’ things?
I can easily forgive someone who does something once. But I don’t know how to forgive things like excessively lying. I wish I just didn’t care about things like lying, but honesty is one of my core values. Don’t get me wrong. If I’m in trouble, my first thought is can I lie to get out of this? LOL. But I don’t usually lie because I suck at it. I’m not saying I NEVER lie.
At the end of the day, I’m not perfect. I can’t judge anyone. And I know from studying A Course In Miracles and my own life experiences that our bad behavior isn’t really us. When I act out, it is usually because I’m scared or feel inferior. I wish other people wouldn’t judge me for that, but of course, they do!

Books of the week: I finished reading All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderers’ Row by James Patterson and Alex A. 4 stars. I enjoyed this book. I read Amazon reviews after I finished reading the book to see why it was rated kind of lower than I expected and people pointed out that all this info has been released before. I agree, BUT I don’t have a good memory. I found the book a great refresher. I like that everything I ever wanted to know about Aaron Hernandez is all in one place.

Planner update: Plans of the week in my Get To Work Book
Plans for the Weekend: Not much. YAY! I’m going to my mom’s house on Saturday. She really wants to see my new computer, and my dog wants to go too. 😉 On Sunday, I’m going to finally take my test. I need to finish this course. I think I have 3 more tests after this weekend.
Next week I have 6 hours off..on two separate days. On Monday, I have 2 hours off to go to the doctor (psychiatrist to get new prescriptions). And then on Tuesday, I have 4 hours off for no real reason. We aren’t supposed to have training that day, so I’m boycotting work. Lol. I’m going to try to start my lawn mower that day. It took me about 45 minutes to start it last Spring. I’m really nervous about it. The mower sounds like it is on its last legs. 😦 It’s not only about buying a new mower, even though I don’t want to. It’s about how do I get a mower to my house? And then I would have to pay someone from Craigslist to put it together for me like I did a few years ago. Sigh. Please work!
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
