In the early hours of the morning on Black Friday, I became an "unofficial" Apple fanboy. I say unofficial because I am still apart of the android ecosystem due to my Nexus 7 so I don't quite bleed Apple through and through...Even though I used Macs some in college, I credit the missus with getting me into the modern iteration of Apple (she had an iPhone and I almost fell in love with it instantaneously). After that I always had an iPhone handy with what ever phone I actually had when I was with T-Mobile that way I could switch out the sim card and still enjoy carrying an iPhone from time to time. I also got the 1st gen iPad and then I upgraded to the 2nd gen iPad. But through all of that, I've had a PC. That all changed at 3:47AM on the morning of November 23rd. I purchased a MacBook Pro. I am pretty excited about getting to know this ecosystem as an everyday user. Having an iPhone and an iPad is in away being apart of it but actually using the ecosystem as a whole is something entirely different. Right off the bat I had to make a decision on whether or not I was going to get a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. From the reviews and countless videos I watched on YouTube, it was clear the obvious choice was the MacBook Pro seeing as though I plan on using a lot of The Adobe Suite and there were reports of the MacBook Air overheating pretty quick...not too mention that I would have to buy the upgrades to it right away as upgrading it afterwards meant having to take it to an apple store or buying the next model up. So I settled on getting the Pro. I should have it in my possession on Monday and I will share my initial experience with you guys at some point I'm the near future. Until then...

This was also my first week of my vacation. I have enjoyed the time away from work. I didn't do what I initially planned but I have enjoyed myself nonetheless. I look forward to my next week of vacation. You know sometimes you need a complete break from it all. Its like pushing a reset button on you life. Everyone should do it now and then.
I also haven't forgotten about the other blog Ive been working on. I just haven't gotten around to finishing it yet. Its still coming soon. I might have if finished by next week in time for my next post. Until then...

Today was a pretty strange but not so strange day for me. I started watching the movie Argo and as I was watching it, I was searching my mind for what I was doing as a kid when this was going on. I was 5 at the time that this was playing out I'm the world and on TV. I remember so many things from that year of my childhood but I can't remember any of the story that's going on in Argo. The Iran hostage crisis shows up nowhere in my memory.
While I was racking my brain trying to picture it, I started to see my 5 year old self getting into trouble and also at some times causing my parents and grandparents a world of trouble. I realized that I was definitely a "boy's boy" (a symptom I equate from not having a brother growing up) I was getting in everything, I was so sneaky but I was sneaky to a point where over time I had people fooled. People thought I was such a quiet good little boy but that's not what I wanted to get it.Back to my recollection, I remember one time my mom and grandparents were coming go pick me up from school and I left school to walk my best friend at the time home. He lived around the corner from school so I wasn't far but when I got back to school my mom and my grandparents were furious with me for wandering off. They had thought something had happened to me. At the time, I was so young that I didn't see what the big deal was. Needless to say just watch that movie brought back that memory of my childhood. And just writing this post, I realized that all 3 of them are no longer with me. I don't know if that means anything or not but I am just typing this blog as its coming to me. I might get back on track. It makes me think of how long its been and how when you are at such a young age, you might not be too aware of what's going on around you. When you are sitting in the backseat or you are opening up presents on Christmas morning, you never think that this isn't forever. You never think that you will one day be without your grandparents, your mom or your big sis. To you the world and everyone else will always be there, until they aren't...
I think that's all I write form this weekend because I have gone from where I originally wanted to go and its getting quite solemn...
