MacBook Pro Retina:


I recently stepped over from PC to MAC in a big way this week by purchasing a fancy 15” Mac Book Pro with Retina display.
I made this purchase because my HP Laptop was giving me some real issues after 3 years and lots of friends recommended I switch to Apple! I also wanted to fork out a decent amount of money for a good laptop that will last and I knew that Mac’s aren't prone to getting viruses which was a big issue with my PC!
So anyway the laptop is pretty awesome! The resolution is amazing and the start-up and shutdown is super quick! I must admit it has been a bit of a learning curve for me, having never used a Mac before. I have to get used to all of the little differences that the Mac offers but so far it has all been pretty easy to pick up.
One thing I love is being able to download things from the app store onto my Mac, just like my I phone. I am going to go nuts downloading different photo editors and games.
One thing I don’t love so much is the fact that the super amazing video editor can’t recognise the high def AVCHD video files from my video camera! That means I have to download a converting program to convert all my video files into a format the Mac likes. What a Biatch! Can you tell I’m slightly disappointed by this??
Despite this issue, overall it is a pretty awesome laptop and I am hoping it will be even more awesome as I discover more and more about what my Mac has to offer.

The New Treadmill:


Yeah well it was my boyfriend’s idea to make this purchase but I must admit I think it is a good one! I work 8.30 – 5.30 so I can never find time to exercise (it also doesn't help that I don’t reallly enjoy exercising either). Anyways I really feel like I need to exercise a bit more and get fit, because although I am quite slim, I swear I am entirely made of jelly. I don’t believe that there are any muscles there.
So I have started by doing a jog for 15 mins every day after work and I hope I can keep it up and even push myself to jog even longer. The treadmill is also set up next to the TV so I can watch it while I exercise. I hope that we make good use of it and that it doesn't end up as an object collecting dust in the spare room.

Firefly:


My sister introduced me to this TV series and I love it! My boyfriend and I have both watched the entire first series in 1 week and we are so disappointed that the series was cut, even if the show is about 10 years old. If you have never seen it, I recommend you find it and watch it…now! 

Sure, it’s a Sci-Fi about space cowboys which sounds pretty lame but it really is fantastic. The characters are so well developed and the story lines keep you hooked. There is a great balance of action, mystery, humor and romance and it starts the lead actor from ‘Castle’ (Natahn Fillion) who is awesome in the role. So yeah watch it watch it watch it watch it! :-)

ASKREDDIT:


I am pretty much addicted to Reddit. More specifically, Ask Reddit, where people post random questions and anyone and everyone can provide answers. Most questions are about every day life and I find it fascinating as it gives me a glimpse into other peoples lives and how they think, feel and act. In a way it makes me feel more connected to the world when I find myself relating to the questions, answers and stories. It also helps me discover different perspectives on different every day topics. The concept is pretty simple but It really is something else!

Bloglovin:


I’m pretty new to the blogosphere but it hasn't taken me long to discover Bloglovin. It’s a great way to discover new blogs for me to follow and provides and easy and user friendly way to read the best posts from my favorite blogs. Also if you write your own blog, you are missing out if you are not apart of this!

Wattpad:


I literally just discovered this website and I love the concept. Readers and writers unite in the online world and it is all free! To be honest I haven’t been reading much lately but I have a bunch of friends who read constantly and would love this. I think this website will encourage me to read more because the stories are conveniently right there for me on my computer screen. Despite not reading as much as I should, I do enjoy writing, and I would love to put some of my story writing out there and get some feedback.
