I'm seriously considering selling my computer and purchasing a laptop. I've been kicking this idea around for a few months now, but I'd put it on the backburner with the reasoning that "I'll use my computer someday."
Here's the thing - I have a video capture card, a nice (practically empty) 80gig HD, and a digital camcorder. I've been sitting on these things for several years now, telling myself that I'll start using them eventually. "Eventually" hasn't happened yet, and honestly, it isn't likely to happen any time in the near future - especially with school looming. I don't want to have another "I should be..." floating over my head while I'm busy cramming schoolwork down my throat.
A laptop would be great for school (typing notes on the go would be really, really nice, considering my handwriting sucks), and I've already proven to myself that I'll actually use
it to write (I've been posting a story per week, or more, to wordwhacker
for the past two months). I don't need anything super snazzy - just reliable word processing and internet, and some really killer battery life. Once I have the time to devote to shooting/editing bad film, I can invest in some, ahem, more up-to-date technology (if what I've got isn't out of date by now, it will be by the time I get to use it.)
So, do you know what time it is? (No, it's not cruisin' time.) It's time for...( A poll! C'mon, click the pretty link, take the poll. You get to cliiiiick thiiiiings, as well as help me out. I'm even being nice and LJ-cutting it. So LOVE ME, dangit! )
Okay, people. Please help me out. If this is a good idea, I can probably do it without too much financial woe (I'll need to fork out for books already, anyway.) But if you think I should stick it out and take my notes by hand and work wit' what I got, let me know.
