Hello fellow myDLers (I'm getting bored of this term, must find a new one)
I'm almost done with my final essay for this year, and thought I'd have one final bout of procrastination for old times' sake. This blog is the manifestation of that...
Lately, I've been entering competitions and thinking about all the cool tech there is out there, but shedding a silent nerd-tear for the fact that I'll never have them.
Why won't I ever have them you ask (in my head)? I don't have the money. I just don't. I tutored, I partook in medical trials and I saved up coins - but I'm still just plain broke.
But that got me thinking - what if I could afford all these things? Or what if Reggie's Rush made a comeback and I could simply grab these things for free? What if Madonna mistook me for another African child and adopted me? What would I get?
Here's my wishlist:
An iPad 2 - because then I can have a garage band in my bag...who wouldn't want that? I could also surf the web freely without having to squint to see a tiny screen. I could listen to music anywhere. I could feel like I lived in the future because touch screens are still super awesome in my mind.
A Netbook - because my iPad 2 would get stolen if I took it to too many placed. A netbook is super convenient and not too flashy. They're great for lecture notes. My incredibly slow writing speed during interviews would be exchanged for my relatively fast internet speed.
A real antivirus - because free versions just don't cut it. If I was rich/Madonna's child, I wouldn't care that I was buying products from the very people who pay to have viruses created and make the buying of their product necessary.
An SLR camera - because these things almost always turn you into a photographer. Anything looks great when taken from these cameras, and if you have even the slightest talent (I'm mildly competent), then awesome photos await you.
An iPod - because I wouldn't care that I was just paying for the brand and not looking for equivalents for cheaper prices. I could plug my iPod into my car and have solo-karaoke in traffic jams. I also wouldn't have to listen to the horrendous remixes which dominate the radio at night.
Microsoft Office 2010 - because I'm too stingy to pay for it now and continue to use the pre-installed half-assed versions of MS Word and Excel which Microsoft was too damn greedy to expand when creating Windows 7.
Ubuntu - I wouldn't buy Ubuntu. I would fund it. Then we could overthrow Microsoft and Apple with our freeware and cloudware...Linux would also be made compatible with all games.
A unicorn - cause hell, if you could afford to have things genetically engineered, you would get freaking unicorn too. I would later create the unicorn-dragon...it would be the most epic creature to rule them all...
What would you wish for? (I assume the unicorn is a given)
