I tried to start it up on Wednesday night and nothing. Well, something, a little light, which I suspected was worse then nothing. (This was what happened last time my laptop died.)
So, off to the Apple Store genius bar on Thursday after work where the very nice guy confirmed that yes, it's the logic board. The fucking logic board, that costs a thousand dollars to replace.
i. am. so. screwed.
So, I walked out of the Apple store, barely keeping it together. My laptop is very very important to me. As a student/photographer/internet addict/ravelry addict/designer/technophile I use it all the time. And now I can't. I'm broke, I'm working at an unpaying job the majority of the time, and I can't afford a new laptop (or the part, but let's face it, a new one is a better deal) until September when my student loan money comes through.
So anyways, Cheryl and I walk to Pickle Barrel, where she treated me to dinner, in a quiet booth, where I started crying. The waiter came and took our order, pretending he didn't notice I was just crying, and then later, i realized that we were eating at almost the same time that news broke that Michael Jackson died. The waiter probably thought I was just a REALLY big Michael Jackson fan; crying over dinner at the news!
So yeah. No computer till Sept. It's going to be an even longer summer now!
I'm currently on Dave's, but he's very possessive of it, and I can't use it for long. Cheryl is going to lend me her 8 year old G4, but i don't know how well it'll work. We'll see.
boo. I suck.
