Old Dog

Seriously, am I an old dog already? Can I not learn new tricks? I have reason to believe that I cannot!

I got a new computer. And I'm certainly excited about getting a new computer, but I had to choose to change to Windows 8 or Mac. Brad has a Windows 8 machine, and I'll be nice and say it's not my favorite. So I got a Mac. I have had the *hardest* time adjusting! I can't rename my photos like I want to, and I can't use my external hard drive like I want to, Windows LIve Writer doesn't exist on Mac {GASP!}, and I am just a fumble fingers using this thing! 

I will get it. I will. And I will love it. I've used Macs before, so it's not super foreign, it's just different from what I'm used to. I had my little filing system all set up where I can separate all my pictures just so, and I will have to get a groove with this new system. It will just take time, but I am not so patient with these things. I have many blogs to write and pictures to name. Certainly after a little time passes, I will love this machine. I will look forward to that day, but for now, I'm doing what most humans do when change happens -- freak out!!

If you blog with a Mac, what program do you use? I'm trying out MarsEdit right now, and I've quickly discovered it's not quite as user friendly as Windows Live Writer.

Growing pains but I really think you will love it!! Btw as we are an all Mac suite at work, I highly encourage you to take the intro/demo classes they have at your local Apple store. Might be hard with the kids but they have a schedule (or I can get one for you if you send me the store name) and would be SO worth it for someone that will use it for so much. Just a thought!! Be patient...will be worth it especially syncing with iPhone, etc, Ash-a-lee!
