So, I have come to realize that getting your first Mac is a lot like having your first kid*. You have this awesome thing that you have been excited about for so long, and now it's right here! Right in front of you!
And you have no idea what to do with it.
And instead of enjoying this thing that you've been wanting and waiting for, you just sit in the corner and cry because it is such a freaking mystery to you.
This is how I'm feeling about my Mac right now. It's super cool, and I'm way stoked on it, but I have no clue how to work it. I keep trying to do things and end up accidentally erasing what I've written. I hear about how people do things with their Macs, but I have no idea how to even get there. I just check my e-mail and then stare at it, hoping it will open its mouth and tell me all of its secrets.
It took me two entire days to realize I never got any kind of Word-type program on it**. Ooops. So much for using it to write, huh***? So I need to do that, I guess. Along with lord knows what else I need to do to figure out this mystery.
Do you guys have any website suggestions for new Mac users? I'm trying to feel like a cool Mac owner, but I'm such a poser right now****.
* Not that I would know anything about having a kid. This is all speculation here.
** I'm totally planning on getting Scrivener, too, so no need to suggest it.
*** Right now I'm at Panera trying to write and I'm on my Dell, which is trying to slowly drive me insane.
**** This entire post also can be applied to my new HTC Evo, which is equally as mysterious as the Mac, if not more. I literally have no idea how to use that thing. So I am also taking suggestions for websites that can help me there, too. It makes noise and I just *stare* at it.
