I opened my Macbook Pro from college. [ I graduated in 2011 & it was a year or so old at that point ] SO SHE’S ANCIENT. It works like 99%. The trackpad doesn’t drag & drop anything. Super Weird. This afternoon I decided I’d put all 103,876 files onto my external hard drive. I’m also dumping my waterproof camera pics on the external & my Nikon.
It’s super fun seeing old photos. The whole point was to find some bridal shower & rehearsal dinner & candid wedding photos… [Married May 2015] So, its not too far back, but with the amount of photos I take…. It’s overwhelming. I have promised my mom for long over a month I’d gather the photos for her… I just knew it was going to be a daunting task.. So, I avoided it until today. I worked out & instead of hopping in the shower, I find myself now, 2 hours later, on the floor, of my office, looking through pictures from 2010 to now. Some probably even earlier than that.
The internet is kinda cool cause it can keep that stuff for you.. but I’m so private on Facebook I NEVER post anything about what I’m doing and where I am. I think its 1. Super creepy 2. Boasting about life… and idk if you need to tell everyone you’re “having so much fun” you probably are not. I don’t have time to tell people i’m having fun… when I actually am. I’ll usually end up with 100’s of pictures from the night, and MAYBE 10 that are actually really great.
This day in age we’re so plugged into our phones, and as a “millennial” we get so much crap for being “lazy” & “glued into technology” but every job I’ve worked the 40-50 somethings spend 80% of work hours on social media & looking for houses they can’t afford, and who the Kardashian’s are dating. About 20% of their day is doing work, or like eating at their desk which isn’t really work. While I do my job & theirs. End rant. You get it.
We’re the most educated generation in history, being paid under our worth, & having zillions of dollars of debt that we accumulate to get that higher education, for that greater job, when we spend all our grand earnings paying off debt for 10 years. And wait to have children because daycare is outrageous, & diapers, & things babies need.. & then they eventually become teenagers, which are mean & expensive. I know, I was one… half my life ago.
I’m sorry this ended up being a rant and it was supposed to be about pictures. Forgive me? Kisses.
