iSplurged

I marked yesterday as one of the happiest days in my life - I just got a new macbook pro! I'm soooo happy that I became emotional and a bit teary.. I've been wanting for a new macbook pro for myself since like, what, 7 years ago? But as you all know, Apple stuff is expensive. So when I was in college, instead of getting a macbook, I was given an Acer by my Mom. Then in my early stage as an employee, when I finally made my own money, I bought a refurbished macbook white. She is the last macbook white ever produced, the unibody. She worked really well with me, I did amazing projects with her, a lot of them, until I realised that she started to be verrrryyyy sloooowww. As the operating system couldn't be updated any longer due to technical limitability, adding some extra RAM couldn't help her a lot, so I was frustrated whenever I'm working with my beautiful macbook white. Opening a Photoshop could take minutes, resizing an illustration takes like forever, working with her became a painful experience. So I told myself that I gotta get a new macbook. It's expensive, but I need it and it's an investment, because a macbook will last (at least) a decade. After a few months of holding up my shopping appetite and saved my coins, there I went to Apple store with my boyfriend to get a new macbook. I know it's a bit norak but it feels so good to say "Mbak, I want this. (pointing at the macbook)" to the shop assistant. It feels sooooo good to say it. It feels so good to splurge on something that you've been wanting for so long, with your own money that you made with your sweat and hard work. Yay for me, I'm so so sooooo happy, Alhamdulillah! Excited to make amazing projects with her! :)
