Yay--I Have an Awesome New Laptop!!!

I am geeking out this weekend--- playing with my new computer. My birthday is on Monday, and my parents decided to get me an amazing new laptop! (Thanks guys! :) My old one, though it has held up really well after four years, has been starting to show it's age. Not letting iTunes copy new songs to my iPod was one of its latest offences.

My new Lenovo IdeaPad, yes I am dropping names because I am just SO impressed, rocks.

It has tons of memory, a great graphics card...and a web cam! The sound system is wonderful, too--the speakers are so loud and clear....important for me to have great sound since I'm listening to music all of the time.

I am so impressed with this computer!!

There are some pics below, but they don't do it justice. For some reason, I had the hardest time taking nice pictures of it.

Recap of My Past Couple of Weeks...

I've become addicted to these. And only just a few days ago, found out that they are something like 350 calories a pop! Yay, go me, I have not only ceased my exercising as of late, I have added a million more calories to my diet! LOL But, hey, they are so SO good!
I've been fluctuating back and forth between missing my old job and loving the perks of my new one! I guess that is the Libra in me coming out...never completely satisfied with a decision.

I've been listening to tons of Cuban music! I've become kinda obsessed, in fact. Buena Vista Social Club is the best!
Also, I've been having fun learning about jewelry making! Here is one of my newest creations:

So, what is new in your world?

Be More and More a Watcher

My friend Kimmy posted this today! I think it's great, so I wanted to share it with you! :)

Be more and more at ease.

Be more and more here and now.

Be more and more in action, and less and less in activity.

Be more and more hollow, empty, passive.

Be more and more a watcher — indifferent, not expecting anything, not desiring anything.

Be happy with yourself as you are.
