Making Music

My daughter is really into music. She loves to play with the casio ctk 7000 at musicians friend every time we go into a place like Best Buy. She probably picked that up from her father. I’m not like that. I like listening to music, but I don’t have any real desire to learn how to play an instrument.

Life to me, isn’t about learning everything. I have things I want to learn and master. I want to do all the maths. I’m a nerd like that. I want to learn to speak German better (and more consistently). I love that language.

But I’m lazy. I’m going to admit that. I’m not going to rush out and attempt to learn it. But I can think about it.

Life is a Rollercoaster

Today I’ve felt like I was on a rollercoaster. Maybe it was because of how I slept, but I swear that my emotions were up and down and everywhere all day long. It was nuts.

The best part of it though is that I am home, with “Ziva the ‘Shiba”, aka the new laptop. She’s just a dream to play with. She’s so quiet. She’s lighter than I expected and a lot wider, but I’m loving it.

Learning Windows 8 is definitely an uphill battle, but I’ll conquer it. I wish my WinPhone apps worked on this. Then I wouldn’t have to repurchase. I need a suggestion for a Word-like application. I know about Open Office, but I had issues with it working on two other computers, so I’m leery of using it.

Okay I think I’m done blathering on with this. This keyboard definitely takes some getting used to, that’s for dang sure, 😆
