I know I get sentimental on my stuff. I have 2 old computers that I don't really use much. I have an electronic keyboard that I played only three times. I have a saxophone that I haven't even touched. George (my first motorcycle) that someone wanted to buy but I just couldn't sell him like that. A playstation 2 that's just standing beside my 2 computers. A playstation 3 that's just layed flat beside the others, collecting dust. I got cable tv and don't watch. These are aside from my small gadgets. I could've easily disposed of them all but I've had good memories with them that I hold dear.
I expected to feel the same way with my new laptop but I really hated it when I had problems with it, along with the fact that the screen resolution isn't 1080p. So I resented it but had no choice but to use it for the meanwhile. I really can't go back to editing pictures with my tv. Time passed and I fell fond of the laptop. For whatever I was thinking that time, I posted an ad on craigslist selling it. I can't even remember why. I got responses but they're all offering a bit too low from my asking price. I could lessen my asking price down to minus $50. But not more than that. Everyone's asking me to lower it down to minus $100. Now, if this was done earlier, I might've taken the offers. But it grew in me and, to be frank, I wished none would offer. Now came a guy named Paul. I didn't took him seriously but I had to be courteous enough to respond to his inquiry. He didn't haggle. Instead, asked the state of the laptop. I should've known that's a good sign for sale.
I met with him last night. The laptop was at it's own state. Dusty, battered, and just plain old "mine" state. I was secretly hoping he'd pinpoint some faults on the keyboard that he'd not buy it. I'll have whatever fault is found fixed and keep the laptop... good thing I didn't name it yet. But alas, he was impressed enough to buy it. Which made me thing, "Was the keyboard, actually better than what I expect of it?" But it's too late. It's out of my hands. Replaced with money... money that's more than what I payed for, really. Just a bit.
I came home and found my bed empty. I miss the laptop already. At times when I was supposed to hold the mouse, I'm tapping below my keyboard. So yeah, it's another adjustment. Right now, I got some pictures needed some editing. But I just can't do that with my tv. Not anymore. So I guess I'd have to wait until I can buy another laptop. It makes me wonder though, if I should just buy a dedicated monitor for editing instead. But that's just a small thought.
Bye bye, my friend. You've been such great help to me. I'll miss you.
