Laptop Withdrawal

June 9, 2009 at 10:30 PM 2 comments

It’s been less than an hour since I dropped my Mac off at the Apple store and I can already feel myself encountering the early stage of withdrawal. It’s sad to say but much of my day job involves staring at a computer screen. You’d think I’d want to avoid the computer at all costs once I get home, but instead I find myself searching for recipes, trolling personal finance blogs, or catching up on email. When the Apple employee said, “It’ll take two days to fix your Mac.” I very loudly exclaimed, “How long?” My voice was so loud, in fact, that I think I surprised myself. Am I really that addicted to my computer?

Regardless I don’t think it’s a good sign. I plan to spend the next two days catching up on a book I’ve been meaning to read and actually heading outside, if it ever stops raining, to exercise.

    I know what you mean. When I go on vacation, I find that it is very difficult to stay detached from technology. Don't be surprised if you spend longer at work for the next couple of days 🙂

    Maybe it's not so much your lap top but it's the internet you can't get away from. I'm the same way. 🙂
