I’ve upgraded from a MacBook Pro to MacBook Air. If you carry your computer around a lot like I do, loosing that extra weight is actually pretty awesome. When I carry it around, it’s like I don’t carry a computer at all and I’ve already noticed how my shoulders are less stiff.
As for style, I can also recommend the P.A.P. laptop cover.
It’s thin, light and stylish enough to carry around as is if you’re just popping out of the office for a short meeting and you plan to get back.
However, I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised that the best thing with the Air is that it’s so fast. Since it has flash storage (no moving parts), retrieving, opening and searching is lightning fast. If you’re a white collar professional, this actually saves you quite a lot of time on a daily basis.
Now, I know that the geeks amongst us might have a thing or two to say about this. Because the Air is weaker than the Pro. But I’m no art director. I don’t edit music or video. I never render 3D objects. All I do is have several Pages documents open at once while listening to Spotify and having multiple browser tabs open at the same time.
And for these purposes, yes. The Macbook Air is faster than any computer I’ve used before. And this single fact is what makes me the most happy about working from this computer.
Ok, so I need a dream journal. I need it because I don’t remember my dreams. And the way to start remember your dreams, which is the first basic step to take, is to force yourself to remember them the minute you wake up. And when you can recollect anything from any dream, you have to write it down.
Why do you have to write it down? I’m no brain expert, but from listening to self-help audio tapes, I’ve learnt one basic rule:
You get more of what you reinforce.
So, if you want to reinforce remembering dreams, you have to manifest them. So, write them down.
I’d like to do it in style. So, I got myself a pretty black Moleskine notebook. Sort of like a token of my respect for my own dreams. I’ve placed the black book on my bed-side table together with a red pen.
Here we go, wish me luck.
