I’m now without a computer…goodbye macbookpro

A moment with my macbookproMy last photo with my laptop

On the same day that I found out I was 7 months cancer-free, I received some equally devastating news. My macbookpro that I’ve had for a little over 3 years has stopped functioning and needs a new motherboard. Unfortunately the $600 cost means that I will not be able to repair it. Instead I will be without a computer for a while, maybe until sometime in 2015. So although I’m really happy that my health continues to improve, it is unfortunate that I won’t be able to work on my photography as much as I’d like. In the meanwhile, I’ll be seeking out public computers around Vancouver to get things done.

It is true that good health > functional laptop, but I do with I could have both in my life.

    I’d been wondering where you were! Glad that you’re OK, but sorry to hear about your computer. Hopefully something will work out for you soon.

      Yes. It is unexpected that I’m without my laptop. Hopefully I can figure out something soon as I can’t edit my photos right now.
