Summer Hiatus

hi·a·tus [hahy-ey-tuh s]
noun, plural hi·a·tus·es, hi·a·tus 

  1. a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc. 
  2. a missing part; gap or lacuna: Scholars attempted to account for the hiatus in the medieval manuscript.
  3. any gap or opening.

I have tried for months now to retreive my passion for blogging and crafting. Everything I have tried has failed. I know that according to SEO and Social Media Marketing that this could be distaster for my blog, but I am willing to take that chance and I hope you (my loyal readers) will understand.

In my last post I mentioned that I had some news to share.

Mother's Day I got this..... 

I watched in amazement as the screen lit up and began the simple and easy set up process.

But let me just say.... it was huge! I have been so used to my laptop that I felt like I was looking at a theatre screen. I decided to trade it in for a MacBook Pro. The screen was slightly smaller than my HP laptop, but it seemed to fit my needs a little better... or so I thought.

The MacBook Pro was completely awesome until I used Safari and also loaded my Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements. The MacBook Pro is equipped with Retina display which sounded great in theory, but if the websites you are viewing and the programs that are installed do not support retina then what you are viewing will be fuzzy, and may not even run correctly (as was the case with my Premier Elements). As for browing the internet, I was advised by Apple Support to use Chrome since it supports the Retina display.

Since the two programs I use the most would not run correctly on the MacBook Pro, back it went as well and for the time being, I am back to using my boring trusty HP Laptop.

5 Things I learned from an Apple
  1. Macintosh was developed by creative people with creative people in mind
  2. The ability to change your folder icons are key to organization and another reminder that Mac's are head and tails above Windows. 
  3. Sometimes they are a little ahead of their time as I discovered with the Retina Display feature on the MacBook Pro.
  4. Mac's are really very simple to use once I stopped trying to overcomplicate them with my "Window's mindset".
  5. If you complain too much, you'll wind up with nothing which is what happened to me. I do still have my 2 year old HP Laptop that has been recently rebuilt so I do have "something" it just not a Mac.

This is where I am at right now, and even though I said I was taking a Summer Hiatus, I do have the right to still post updates on this blog, post updates to my social media sites, and create whenever I have the notion to do so. In other words, I am going to enjoy my summer and you might get a few updates here and there, but nothing on a regular schedule.

Enjoy your summer and I'll see you again on a regular basis this fall......
