30 August

Next week I start my first day of college at the local community college

my first day ever at fifty years old

it's a fence I thought I would never hurdle

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

 I have a new computer

which i really needed

i liked my old computer very much

i miss it already

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

computer batteries do not last as long as computers do

i think they should last longer

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

when you buy a new computer they try to sell you every single extra gadget and "plan" on the market

If you don't buy them they send more sales people over to tell you what a great deal it is

and how much you need it

if you do buy it they try to sell you something else

if you don't buy something else

they send extra sales people over to tell you what a great deal it is

and how much you need it

my pictures look better on the new computer

it's bigger

it has touch screen

i only got that because it was the best deal

I'll never use that touch screen

  1. Congratulations on starting college. I totally agree with your thoughts on computer sales.

  2. I love Cosmos ... I always think they dance at the end of the stems. Good for you and community college -- a new adventure. I think learning is a life long process - or should be! Enjoy the new computer.

  3. Gorgeous photo! Congratulations on going to college. I hope it is all you wish it to be. New computers are pretty cool but I still have fond memories of our first 386 :)

  4. Your shot is beautiful and so peaceful to look at....Congratulations on your return to the college life. I am sure it will be lots of hard work but what a wonderful accomplishment once completed....

  5. I love this post. Congratulations on "jumping the hurdle." School will be happy-making - and you'll get lots more out of the experience . . You'll also find lots of people closer to your own age . . .

    It would be extra fun if the sales people had an option for a cost effective person to carry your computer gear everywhere for you . . .
    and to believe good things for you all day long as part of the package price.

  6. Love your cosmos image - so pretty and wispy! Congratulations on returning to college! And getting a new computer - yes, I went to a store like that to check out their items - didn't buy from them. Glad you like your new pc, especially the monitor. Thank you for your visit today. Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Pretty pic. Congrats on going back to school..I was a late student too, and I loved every minute of it. Your experience at the computer store is the main reason I order online. :)

  8. It's never to late for now! I wish you all the best.
