The Transcendental Experience

Being computer-less is odd.  I mean, my phone still works, so I can still get the necessary things done – and when I say necessary, I mean checking in on Facebook and Twitter (even so, I do that less since I’m more of a fan of the desktop version of those platforms).  But I haven’t checked my email in like two weeks, so I must have hundreds of missed messages by now.  But in all honesty, 99% of it is usually spam, so I don’t think I’m missing much.  And it’s great not to have to look at or delete some ads from Target about a deal I don’t care about.

I’m probably going to be without a computer for another few weeks…I heard the new Mac is coming out at the end of this month.  Why buy a computer this week when next week it will be obsolete? (I suppose the same will be true then, but at least I’ll have a solid six months of saying I have the latest Mac – as opposed to two weeks – before the another one comes along).  I thought it would be hard to go a month without a computer, but it’s been quite easy.

This is the point of the story where I go into having a transcendental experience and realizing the beauty of nature.  While that is probably true, I’ve just really embraced watching tv on my phone and getting used to using the tiny keyboard.

I’m joking (partly).  Actually, being without a computer has given me more time to do things that I thought I didn’t have time to do.  For instance, I’ve been writing songs since I was fifteen, and as I got older and had more obligations, I’ve had less time to pick up the guitar and write songs.  Sure, I always keep a notebook on me to scribble out ideas thoughout my day, but it’s been a while since I wrote a complete song start to finish.  And it’s really started making me get back into it and making me excited about making music again.

So perhaps I am having a transcendental experience.  Or I’m finally being able to find myself without being distracted by some update or alert.  It’s kind of exciting.

I do apologize for the lack updates, but as I said in the last update post, I can only do it when I borrow someone’s computer…so…I’m doing my best here.
