Havent had a proper laptop in nearly half a decade. Mostly because its been too much fun being offline, and figuring out how to be.

About this project

Basically, Im trying to buy a computer, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, to be more precise.

Currently all money goes to my plebian lifestyle of groceries, health insurance, and rent. So no, Im not throwing champagne parties (but might consider an invitation).

To continue my professional development, I need my own laptop. Coding, Photoshop, accurate Facebook stalking (hey, dont act like you dont know what Im talking about), and getting in my fill of quality Youtube time are all experiences I havent quite explored to the fullest.

All in all, sometimes, I just feel...different. *shrugs*

Disclaimer: This is just to see the system's limits, bends, and angles.

Risks and challenges

Mostly, I feel like Im qualified to tell how life without a laptop feels.
With the completion of the project, maybe I'll forget my humble beginnings...

In this Digital Age, no laptop is the equivalent of couture-ing up a Chanel gown without, you know, eyes.
Maybe I'll forget to feel with my heart, and just stream season after season of 'Gossip Girl' instead...

With a laptop, I wont be introduced as the weird girl, 'Hey, this is Elizabeth. She doesnt have a laptop. Or a cellphone. Weird, righhhhht?'
Socially-speaking, I may have to come out of the corner and into the light...
