Throwback Thursday: Thwarted!

Throwback Thursday: Because doing things is a pain. Always.

Last Monday, I took the day off work to get errands done. Result? Most frustrating day ever.

Firstly, I needed to go to the dmv and get a new license. I googled their address.

Secondly, I needed to go to the registration place to get new plates for my car.

Then I decided to go to the mall to do a little shopping and look at comfy futons.

FINE. I went to Target and they no longer had a sample futon out that I had seen a few weeks ago. So I decided to go to a mattress store to check out futons there.

Then I gave up and went home. Because seriously, what the fuck? My day would have more productive if I literally stayed in bed all day.

Lesson learned. Don’t try to be productive, ever.

Packing and Boxes and Moving, Oh My!

I’m moving next week! Do you know what that means?

Yes, yay. It means something else, too.

Yep, it’s packing time. I decided to start small.

Boyfriend had some good advice.

I’ve concluded that packing triggers some kind of black magic, where you pack boxes and boxes and there’s always still stuff left and it crushes your spirit.

Wish me luck.

Throwback Thursday: #$&@! You, Apple

Throwback Thursday: because I recently tried to figure out why my photos weren't syncing properly and then I gave up because what the fuuuuck why is everything so hard?!?!?

also known as “What It’s Like to Update Your Apple Products”

So my iphone updated last week to iOs 7. It’s not a huge deal, though I had no idea it was coming. 

But I realized that it takes up kind of a lot of room, and the free space on my iphone was getting pretty low.

Note: camera roll vs photo stream is incredibly confusing. Fuck whoever invented it.

So I got on my macbook to sync it with this mysterious cloud.

Ok, that wasn’t quite it. But I had to spend $20 to upgrade my macbook. I vaguely remembered something about an upgrade when it first came out, but spending $20 on something unnecessary at the time? Pssssshaw! 

Anyway, I bit the bullet and downloaded it.

An hour later, it finished downloading.

Finally, it rebooted and I had my latest operating system up.

So I upgraded my iPhoto and restarted my computer again.

Then I did something called “losing it”

So, I let my iphoto finish updating all my photos, and finally – FINALLY – got my iphone photos synced/backed up with icloud and iphoto.

But at least that’s done. Until apple comes out with another system upgrade.

If anyway needs  me, I’ll be mourning the loss of my weekend.
