If you follow me on Snapchat, you know that last week my computer took a dump. It was terrible.
You might remember my blog from a few weeks about where our family went down to Florida and we had no internet connection to the outside world and stepping away from digital screens for a week was great. This week was not like that at all. For 2-3 days my computer would randomly reboot on me while I was working when suddenly it shut down and wouldn't start back up. So I spent the entire week trying to fix what I thought was a hard drive problem but turned out to be a RAM issue. This wasnt a major issue as I have back ups and back ups of backups and backups however this was still a major inconvenience. But during that week I still had business as usual. Engagement sessions to shoot, emails to reply to, contracts to send. All of which were getting backed up until I got my computer fixed. And as much as I dream about being able to switch away from a computer and use an iPad for all my work we are not there yet technologically. The computer is a necessary. On one hand it can feel like such a burden but on the other hand with out it I wouldn't be able to live the life I live. It's all about finding balance which can be said about everything in life. I will continue to work on it everyday. Now if you excuse me, I have a lot of editing to catch up on!
