This post is in collaboration with Happiness Boutique. I received complimentary jewelry in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions stated are my own.
Hello, lovelies! Long time no see. Almost two months without uploading a new post! I’m so happy to be back and I’m ready to go back to my old schedule again. If you follow me on social media (Instagram specifically), you know that my almost-ten-year-old MacBook Air stopped working.
The MacBook Situation
Because of the situation, I was stressed and overwhelmed. First, I was worried about how much money it would take to fix it. Secondly, I had work to do! How I was supposed to finish everything now? I needed photoshop, the pictures, the documents… My whole job is in a computer! I was in panic mode.
Luckily, I did a backup a day before my computer stopped working. I wasn’t sure if all the information was saved though. My MacBook Air decided to died in the middle of the backup. Believe me. I was freaking out.
So here it is, lovelies. Your reminder to do constant backups. At least once a month! I know they are annoying and we try to avoid them, but they are important and necessary. I know that my computer is consider it old (Apple called it vintage LOL), but it was reliable.
What really happened to my computer? The hard drive died. My theory is, that after updating the software (to Mojave), something went wrong and messed up the hard drive. At least that’s what makes sense after reading about the issue online. Also, I wasn’t the only one having that problem. Maybe Apple did it on purpose, maybe my computer was just old *shrug shoulders emoji* I will never know the truth.
Anyway, after crying a lot and many nights sleeping like shit, I talked with the universe and decided to let go all those angry thoughts. I told myself that everything was going to be fine and that I will figure it out. I believe it, and I let it sink. A few days after, I got a call from my dad telling me he was thinking about getting a new computer. I told him about my problem and we decided that the best thing to do here was to sell my MacBook Air. The universe (and God) listens, people!
It took my dad two months to get a new computer. That’s why I haven’t been able to post new content.
What I Have Been Up To
So, what did I do these past two months? Thanking God every day for sending me a solution. I also found a temporary job at a company. They needed some designing help and I went there for a few weeks. It was a great and refreshing experience. Everyone there was so nice and I had a great time.
It was close to home, and I developed a new routine that I enjoyed. Although, I did struggled a little trying to work out every day. It was hard to go to the gym after work. I just wanted to be in bed and cuddle my dog.
The last few days I’ve been in Myrtle Beach with my boyfriend enjoying every minute we have together. If you are new here, I’m in a long distance relationship. While I live in Chile, my boyfriend is in the US. Yeah, that’s a lot of distance and a flight from home to here is around 10 hours. No fun, especially after three connection flights. If you are in a long distance relationship, make sure to check out all my tips and advice I have for you!
Now that the blog will go back to the normal schedule, I’m ready to plan new things for the blog. If you subscribed to my email list, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. I want to revamp the exclusive freebies page and add more fun things. If you have ideas or you want me to write about something in particular don’t hesitate and send me a message through my contact page.
