Better Than Before

So, last night, despite the downpour, blowing the dust off my A+ hardware skills, and time consuming downloads, I have a “better than new” computer at home again.  You know, at first I was sad that all my software was gone and I would have to start over with a new hard drive, but now I see it as a bit of poetry.

I knew the hard drive was going and I always back up my art, but I was holding on that it would live though my final term at school and then I would fix it from there; however, it died just as I began my Week 11 finals, and I almost became slightly worried.  The good news is that I was able to put 3ds Max and such temporarily on my boyfriend’s computer to finish everything up as quickly as possible on Sunday and Monday.  By Tuesday, I was pricing and researching a hard drive, and finally on Wednesday, I was purchasing, installing and formatting everything to a solid working order.

The best part about a clean install is that it is like a new beginning.  At first, I was a little sad that I might not have everything I once had on it, but then I realized it was almost like a metaphorical weight being lifted.  I was removing all the clutter and things I probably did not need in my computer or my life anymore and I could put back only the things that would be of some use.  This kind of process mirrors nearly my mindset with my gym and yoga practice.  Simply put, I have a design computer with the internet and a few of the games I still play on it and nothing more.

It moves quickly and it isn’t bogged down by systems from the past; this is just like me.

I know that not everyone knows how to move on in life and it is clear with the actions and practices they follow, but for me, I am appreciating the clean slate of the new computer and this new chapter in my life.  I have finished school, continued with top marks, and I will likely have my work showcased on the school’s website to help inspire future graduates.

These are all great feelings and also it is a feeling of great success that does not come in the form of a tangible reward.

Not only is my computer better than before, but I feel better than before, too.

Until next time, my friends…

Namaste! ♥
