I’ve changed the name of my blog and will be explaining why at a later date.
I haven’t blogged in a while (ten days; I think that’s a while). I want to but I want to make sure my reasons for blogging are not wrong. I blog because I want to become a better writer. I blog because my diary can sometimes become a pit of narcissism and a blog allows me to write while being aware of others. I’m still not sure what my “niche” is, but I expect that I’ll find it eventually.
I’m attempting to remove all negative aspects of myself and what surrounds me. I’m organizing my room and getting rid of what I don’t need. I’m replenishing my closet with clothes that I actually like. I’m going to organize my computer. I want twenty two to be my best year yet and with God’s help it will be.
Writing is interesting. I often feel that my words are creating themselves and that I am only the typist. I think that is the best time to write. Why should I force out words when I have nothing to say? I know that wouldn’t create my best work. I have nothing to say right now, so I’m starting a discussion:
DO YOU THINK THAT J.K. ROWLING HAD A SPECIFIC LONG TERM PLAN FOR THE HARRY POTTER SERIES PRIOR TO THE MOVIES BEING PICKED UP BY WARNER BROTHERS?

Oh, Apple, why do you hate me? Is it not enough that I’ve bought three of your products? Is it not enough that I’ve grown so attached to my iPhone that I consider it my child?
Why then do you continue to torment me?
When I walk to the Apple store and receive a new phone to replace my old one I think, “Oh, Apple, you’ve done it again. You are awesome.”
Alas. The joy is short lived and I am now devastated. I attempt to connect my iPhone to iTunes. Attempts to fix the problem myself (silly me!) result in a “slide for emergency screen.” Emergency calls are free on payphones. This screen is useless to me.
I call 1-800-MY-APPLE. Maybe someone there will be able to help with “my Apple.” They can’t. Their only solution results in a continuation of the problem.
But, what’s this? There’s an Apple store by my house! I just know that if I make an appointment then the aptly named geniuses at Apple will be able to help me!
I walk into the store. Someone directs me to a chair. I’m bored, maybe I’ll walk around…no, bad idea. I’m sent back to the chair by a woman with an intimidating looking iPad. I wonder if you could knock someone out with that? I know I’d like to beat myself unconsciousness right about now.
Oh! The technician is here! Wait, why is he taking my iPhone out of its case and subjecting it to the cruel elements of the outside world? Why is he taking a piece out?
Oh, the piece is back in and my iPhone is back in its case! My iPhone no longer shows the emergency screen!
Instead, it shows the empty main menu of a phone that’s never been used! That’s so awesome!…wait, somethings wrong. What was my original problem?
Oh, yes. My iPhone is still like my child but right now it’s not my favourite child. It will be when I backup my old info to it which I can’t wait to do as soon as I’m home again.
Ok, I have my computer in front of me. It’s time for Apple to demonstrate how truly great its products are! All I need to do is connect my iPhone to my computer. iTunes will reconise it and…*sigh*It didn’t work. iTunes won’t reconise it.
I delete files.
I do hard resets.
I power off.
I power on
Then I cry and know why I’ll never purchase a Mac.
