I've gone Mac

Well, I've done it. I've gotten a MAC. My husband won a sweepstakes for a shopping spree at the Mall of America and I used my portion of the gift cards on a Mac Laptop. I'm so excited. Because I am a college student I got a free printer, free Ipod, and a couple hundrend dollars off. Life is good. My older brother has been on a Mac for a long time now and has told me all of the benefits, but what really sold me was talking to a few teachers who do lots of cool things for their students using the MAC. They have told me how easy it is. This was really the turning point for me in wanting to get one. I will be student teaching in January and then a teacher hopefully by next fall, so it should come in handy. The bonus is, it was free. The gift cards were VISA cards, so I went ahead and got my gift. We are going to the Mall of America over Labor Day Weekend. We got a free night in a hotel and wristbands for the amusement park. It will be a great time before getting back in the swing of school.

My older brother Karl, Thee Great Mac Evangelist, came over tonight around 10:30ish to install some software and start showing me the ropes. He left at about 1:00am with so much more that he wanted to share. We are getting together again next week for my next tutorial. I look forward to it.

It's about time you became a believer and accepted mac into your heart.
