Tech Savvy

7 Dec

 I didn’t even touch a computer until I was 13, and granted it wasn’t unusual then-it’s super unusual now. My 2 year old cousin is a genius on an iPad! Craziness. And like most things, it has it’s good and bad points. But for the most part, I think it just shows the natural progression of technology. I’m only 24, but I think I’ve been alive during a really exciting period. With the rise of Apple, Bluetooth, and SmartPhones it’s all pretty cool.

I was thinking about it more because I’m enrolling in Library and Information Science graduate school for next year. While I’m not exactly sure where the degree will lead me, a lot of the courses are technology heavy. Just a few years ago, that would scare me silly. I’m not an HTML genius or able to “just know” what’s wrong with a tech product. I’ll always have to do some investigating, but I’m super excited to try.

The Bahamas were a technological godsend. I look back at my time there with great fondness. Those few years gave me an extra little bit of childhood. I spent the time playing outside, in the ocean, at recess, reading, playing with friends. The computer was this big thing in hallway. It made funny noises.

After we moved here, I felt a little behind. Everyone seemed to already have more than basic knowledge of computers. It was really daunting and I let my frustration get the better of me a lot of the time. But it was one of those scenarios where you “fake it til you make it.” It took a while, but I didn’t have to pretend anymore. I knew what to do and when. Now, I can do more than I ever thought I could. It just took patience (I’m still working on this one). But, what to do when my beloved techie products refuse to work?

I read a book.

My next review coming soon! :)

Outta The Bag…

23 Oct

I’ve seen these posts all over the place and think they’re pretty neat. I once heard a woman say that she could rule the world with the contents of her purse. And while funny…it’s kinda true. So, thought I’d share my portable universe.

I carry a huge purse on most days- the better to carry all my crap. But this awesome bag was a present from my Mom, who also carries a huge purse :)

Bag: Kate Spade

Small bag: Vera Bradley

Camera

Ipod

Phone

Kindle

Wallet

Sunglasses

Strangely enough, this post came about when a WordPress post asked me if I like surprises. I like surprises, but sometimes I just like to be prepared, you know?

What can I say? I’m complicated.

And having everything I need in one place (my purse) helps me feel better about it. My bag within a bag within a bag usually covers all the bases.

I’ve got some bandaids, stain remover, mirror, chapstick, Aleve, zip drive, toothpicks, splenda, hair clips, safety pins and antibacterial wipes.

Now, I’m ready for anything! :)

Anybody else take their world with them when leave the house in the morning?
