I got my computer back! And all my data is still on it. What a relief! Apple replaced everything but the bottom cover and the hard drive. I’m not joking. Every single piece of my laptop is new, down to the screen. Thank you, warranty plan. And thank you Apple for sticking with my free blogging resource topic. They still don’t know what caused it to shut down and never boot up again.
Fingers crossed I don’t have to relive anything like this anytime soon.
In my last post I mentioned, I’ll be focusing on taking smaller bites out of my goal. So far, setting aside time for yoga has worked out well for me. I needed to get started on that sooner than later. While my anxiety significantly subsided , I still wake up with it and experience it throughout my day.
If you’re looking for a cool yoga app, try out Down Dog. The routines are well done, the music accompanying the flows is excellent, and it’s actually relaxing.
On to the thing that brought you here in the first place: free blogging resources. Honestly, if I could spend my days only researching and compiling useful, new, resources, I would. Now that I’m thinking about it, maybe that’s not a half-bad idea. I think my husband’s love for start-ups has rubbed off on me.
