Macbook Pro, long lines, another hotel

| life | apple | navy |

I got a new laptop this weekend and it is quite possibly a very bad decision but I feel like I have been working hard for a while and paying off all my bills so I deserve a little treat. I was going to go to microcenter to get this $300 emachines laptop that they had on sale. It was not a bad machine, but definitely not something to write home about. Then I started browsing other computers and honestly in order to get what I want out of a new laptop I would have to spend around $700 bucks. I thought to myself you know what.. every time that you buy a new laptop it is piece of crap and becomes obsolete a year later.

I decided to go all out and get a Macbook Pro. I have always had my eye on the macbook. Its nice $999 price range made it slightly justifiable. I never in my wildest dreams imagined forking out $1200 for a computer but I did. and I love it. And I don’t regret it for one second.

This computer is simply beautiful and a joy to use. It is honestly worth every single penny that I spent on it and I hope to have a good relationship with this laptop for many years to come. It is a nice small 13 inch model, but the screen is very vivid and clear and beautiful. Everything about this computer is beautiful, it just works, it wants to be used, it is screaming for me to use it.

On the flip side of this weekend I decided to make an impromptu trip to Washington DC to see John. I knew that he was going to be in class all weekend so I would only be able to spend the nights with him, but I decided that it was worth it. It is better for me to see him a little bit than not at all. We had some chinese food for dinner on friday night and then called it an early night. Then saturday night we went to Joes Crab Shack, and they have awesome crabs! And Awesome Margaritas! :D Then we came back to the hotel, it took a long time to get through dinner their service was quite slow. But it was great to see everyone again. Mikes baby is growing up so fast! She is too cute. :)

Now I am sitting here at the hotel getting ready to head on the four hour drive back to my place. I just walked john out to his car about an hour ago. He is going to Fire training. Hes not liking it too much. Its very demanding , but I am proud that he is going through with it! Two more weeks to go.

The next time that I will be back around here for july 4th weekend, I believe that we are getting 96 hour liberty so it will be nice to spend an extended amount of time here.

When I get back to portsmouth I have to do a little bit of laundry and then crack the books open for my anatomy and physiology test on monday. Horray for Kidneys!

I hope everyones weekend was as good as mine. :)
