A few weeks ago I published a post titled “An Open Letter to my Fellow Android Users;” which was a satirical attempt to make fun of Apple products and the implications behind them. You can check out that post here!
Anyways, I ended that post asking if I was a hypocrite because I use a Macbook.
It seems that the universe has decided to answer that question for me, because my laptop decided to kill itself a week ago. Karma?
I was in bed watching Youtube at 3 am; keeping up with my quarantine routine; when I finally decided to go to sleep.
So, I stood up and put my laptop on my desk, and when I woke up in the morning to watch more YouTube, it wouldn’t turn on.
Now, I have to make the obvious joke you’re all waiting for.
It wouldn’t be the first time I couldn’t turn something on.
No but seriously, this comes at an especially terrible time since I’m about to start college in a few weeks, which is unfortunately online for now.
I’m also an incredibly old man at the age of 17, so I didn’t make it a point to backup all my data; which means that there are several half finished blog drafts that hang in the balance.
(Don’t be like me)
I originally had a completely different post planned for today, but can you guess where that post is? In. My. Laptop.
But what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t use the terrible things that happen to me for content!
I spent the entire morning running around the city trying to find a repair shop, before I finally found the official Apple repair service.
So I walk into the store, slowly regaining my confidence, thinking, “What am I so worried about? They’ll fix it right? They know what they’re doing right?”
Maybe they did or maybe they didn’t, but I didn’t get the chance to answer those questions before I was almost kicked out of the store for not having an appointment.
Now again, maybe I’m just the oldest 17 year old ever, but when did we start needing appointments for repair shops?
With the corpse of my laptop and my head in my hands, I walked out of the store both without a working computer and an appointment.
Regardless, it’s now being repaired, and I’m about 90% sure they’re going to tell me it’s going to cost a million dollars to fix!
Anyways, thank you for listening to my rant- I promise I’ll have a more interesting post next time; assuming that my laptop decides to reincarnate itself.
Thank you for reading!
Until Next Time.
