I waited around to get myself a new comp until after taxes, and then after Mercury retrograde, and in the end, I'm comfortable with my choices. If anything, it's done me good being offline more. I've spent more time doing creative dabbling, reading, watching movies, and scribbling in notebooks. The other day I finished the outline for a new novella, worked on my current novel project, and created a vision board for 2019. I'm a couple of months behind the curve regarding the vision board, but I figure it won't hurt anything since I didn't know much about vision boards until I saw a video about it a few days ago.
I have everything set up now, and I'm "settling in" with the new machine. I have downloaded a few apps from the app store, including Pages and a graphics program that I haven't tested out yet. There's always a learning curve, but I'll get the hang of it.
