I do have a proper grown up job but my mum still does my ironing. I should be doing my MSc part time but spend my Sundays watching E! (Love some Scott Disick and Fashion Police) I spend quite a lot of time thinking about this and thinking about it really isn't going to get anything done.
I did however make a recent purchase which made me feel rather grown up. My old HP laptop died after four years, all my computers seem to have a three-four year life span. I had never bought my own laptop before, they were always Christmas presents or graduation presents from my mum so buying my own felt like quite a major step. I wanted to replace it with something that would last but was also lightweight for when I finally decide to study again and has a good battery life. After a lot of deliberation I opted for a MacBook air and here she is:
I can't say that I'm very technical even though part of my day job is IT support so I wont be giving this a full review but I would say that it has amazing battery life, the track pad is easy to use and the back lit keyboard is fantastic. I also managed to get 15% off with a higher education discount through unidays so this worked out cheaper than other computers of a similar specification. I would say the only downside is rather low internal memory but I have an external hard drive and save all my photos on flickr so I can't see this being an issue.
I might name my laptop, scrap that... that's insane. I really love it though and it's probably the most extravagant thing I've bought except for my return flights to New Zealand a few years ago. It's funny how buying something like this has made me think about the future. I'm making a good start to get out of debt by paying back the small student loan I took out in my final year of uni to pay for rent. I've started a little savings account and started to keep a little spending spreadsheet to keep on track of my outgoings. The eventual aim is to save enough to buy a house to rent out and start making my way up that property ladder. Scary stuff ey?
