Endings + beginnings
LOST was pretty incredible last night. My eyes are still puffy! I get weepy thinking too long about any aspect of the ending. It’s so hard to believe that it’s over (and those of you who’ve loved the show know what I mean). Love or hate the end (and I have yet to watch the alternate endings from Jimmy Kimmel), it was definitely monumental.
Which segues right into two additional endings. First up is that this week marks my last post for the Craft Venture column on papernstitch. This was a very hard decision for me to make, but I truly need every hour I can get my hands onto for my business, particularly as Renegade San Francisco approaches! My last column is about a topic that is near and dear to many of us: originality, inspiration, influence and copying. I hope you’ll join in on the comments!
And another ending, more personal this time. After my THIRD computer meltdown this year … I went mac.
Yes indeedy, I am typing this from my nifty new macbook pro!
Macs aren’t without their own problems, but come on, three major meltdowns? And this one’s a doozy – it’s going to require yet another reformat and OS install and I don’t know if that will even do it. Gah! Luckily, my files are completely backed up.
A mac is a huge monetary investment, and I’m counting on the time that I will save from not having to constantly fix Windows OS issues, virus issues, firefox issues (oh there were issues!), etc. more than making the investment worthwhile. (Please???). Plus, I just don’t have time to rebuild a PC laptop from the ground up right now. I have things in the works that are time sensitive!
So yay to new beginnings! (I’m sure I’ll be treating myself to an ipad before the year is over ….)
