I’m Back

I have a new computer. I am very impressed with the speed of Staples getting my laptop ready.

One thing I don’t like: that my computer comes pre-programmed with so much advertising. I couldn’t even get solitaire without a Microsoft account. Seriously? I feel so target marketed.

This experience only reinforces my determination to use my resources more wisely. I plan on doing a lot less diddling around on this computer and focusing on learning how to use Access. I got Office Professional because I want to make myself more valuable. Who would you rather hire: someone with a tablet or someone with a laptop complete with the whole shebang of MS Office? Being minimalist isn’t just about spending less money, but more about spending money more on things with strategic importance.
