So now my new computer rests peacefully on my ridiculously large desk (enhancing how tiny it is...see the little silver/white box with the iphone sitting on top of it to the left of the TV screen? yeah, that's it...)
I fiddled with the mac for most of the morning and studied for a few hours to help be prepared for everything I'll be working with. And then fiddled some more. I wish I could figure out what to do with the stuff in the rest of these boxes so that my whole room would be as neat and clean as this desk. Oh well, one thing at a time.
