MICROSOFT MAKES ME HATE 2013 & BREAKDOWN IN TEARS WITH THEIR “CHILD OF THE 90S” VIDEO

It’s bad enough that the “90s” are considered “vintage”, but yesterday, while still being in constant denial about turning 27 next week and having nothing to show for it, I began searching through multiple YouTube videos for trailers, music pieces and fan-made AMVs of the Final Fantasy series and came across something that nearly sent me over the edge – “Final Fantasy X – Retro Video Game Commercial.” RETRO!?! Are you f*cking kidding me?! That game was released in 2001! Then I realised, it had been 12 YEARS since the last installment of the Final Fantasy franchise under Square, (before it became the soulless Square-Enix).

So after having a major FML moment, and while my already collapsed world crumbled into dust having come to terms with becoming a has-been, (I can’t even work a PS3), I clicked on the Final Fantasy X Ending Movie video to reminiscence about the “days of yore”, only to have my moment of “retro” nostalgia interrupted by a 1 minute and 41 second, “un-skippable” advertisement by Microsoft that basically reduced me to a blubbering hot mess, even before being able to view the movie that was meant to reduced me to a blubbering hot mess – An advert about the 90s!

If you’re a member of generation Y such as myself, get the tissues ready, draw the curtains and continue reading to re-live the golden days when everything was just perfect, and troubles melted like lemon drops…or in my case, cherry drops and Murray mints *weeps*.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…IS…A MACBOOK PRO

*Sings* “Santa won’t you please, bring the one I really need, won’t you please bring a Macbook to Meeeeeeeeeee!!!”

I NEVER EVER regret spending a small fortune on my beloved iMac. It has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made, especially when it comes to my own design business. The resolution, the speed, the overall slickness has made working on projects for clients such as LeiVanKash Jewellery, Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Nokia and even this blog, both easier and satisying.

But there’s one tiny thing I knew I would have trouble with – Portability. I have family and friends scattered all over the place that I always visit, moreso with the events I’ve had to put up with this year. Unfortunately I’ve had to cut short many trips, simply because I have to rush back home to design a graphic for a client that would only take me around an hour, or gone for days without updating the blog simply because I don’t have access to my design programs to create headers graphics and resize images.

So a 13 inch Apple Macbook Pro or Macbook Pro with Retina Display is something which I now need – but simply as a portable backup for my iMac (which I still adore in case it can read). Due to the fact i plan on using it as a backup item, the spec (while still impressive), need not be the highest hence why I’d pick the 13 inch over the 15 inch. The only downside to the new model is that it lacks a superdrive, while the older Macbook Pro model does have one and with a slightly smaller price tag. Then again how often do we use CD’s nowadays?

You can check out the full specs, models and accessories online on Apple’s website.
