No, I did not find a real full time job but I did pick up a freelance gig. I am not sure at this point how much I will work but something is better than nothing. I had all but forgotten that I applied for this writing job about 4 weeks ago. I was surprised when I was contacted they other day and asked to submit a trial piece. It was accepted with a few minor edits and the pay rate is not bad. Hopefully this will be a long term deal and I can work from home.
I had a scare last night. I saw an error message come up on my laptop. It then froze so I did the only thing I could do. I pulled the battery. I tried to boot up again and it would NOT come on. (Insert screaming and hair pulling here!) I tried several times but to no avail. I let it sit. I pulled the battery again. I walked away for awhile. Nothing. I finally gave up thinking that my battery was dead.
I went to bed thinking just what I needed. Another expense. I NEED MY COMPUTER!
I got up this morning and figured oh what the heck. I plugged it in. Then the clouds cleared the sky. The sun came out. My laptop booted up! So, here I sit writing this blog post. I do not know what happened but every finger and toe is crossed that it was just a computer fluke or maybe gremlins.
I do not believe it. It just did it again! Obviously I got it back but this maddening. I will be nice little red laptop but be warned, I just googled Macbook Air!
