iPad Drama

Oh bummer, iPad restoring

Oh, first world problems. Ever since I got my iPhone 3 years ago, Mr. Steve Jobs got me hooked on Apple devices. Needless to say, I’ve grown into a weirdo girl that treats her tech as if they were her own kids. Either it’s good marketing or some sort of addictive substance on their gizmos, Apple has this effect on people, and it really did change my life (and swear i wasn’t paid to say this!).

Can you believe actually wait in line and camp for day in front of Apple stores just to buy a gadget, yeah, good branding and amazing products drive people nuts! So last Christmas a new Apple baby arrived to our home – an iPad – and it fulfilled that tiny gap in my geeky heart. The unimaginable thought of living without a laptop computer has now become bearable, and i barely use a laptop now.

The iPad always made his momma proud, he has been a good boy. But two days ago, out of nothing, it kept restarting every 3 minutes and it wouldn’t stop. We tried everything, from hard reset, erasing all the apps and restoring the software. Almost had an anxiety attack! It kept crashing and rebooting, like it had a will of its own.

So i had to took it to the ER, i mean technical support, and left the poor baby there and went home with a broken heart. The guy said if they didn’t fix the problem i’d get a brand new one. Yay!

Well, after a storm comes the rainbow. Good news are they just called saying i could come to the store and pick a brand new iPad later today. Ahah! It feels like an off-season Christmas! We might get some iPad Unboxing Porn tonight.

Cupcakes and candies all around,

We’re Moving to London

Beautiful London by night

…Wait, what? OMG, i still can’t believe this! You know when a lifelong dream is about to come true and it seems so good you have to pinch yourself only to make sure you’re not dreaming? I’ve been pinching myself every day for a month now, since we’ve booked our one-way flight tickets!

Ever since we were kids we’ve always had the dream of moving to the US or the UK. We’ve been setting out a realistic plan of our life-changing leap for over a year now, as mid-November 2011 always seemed a good date for us. Pre-Winter madness in London (favorite season), economical stability (well,  it’s a must), a couple years of great professional experiences in your resumé and a hell of an amazing boyfriend slash best friend for ages as a partner in crime.

It took us some time to figure out which one of our top favorite cities we loved most (tough call, i know!), we love New York, Boston and London. After a reassuring trip to London in April, it came to us like some sort of epiphany, it all made sense. London was the one to go.

We’re so ready for this. I can’t wait for the english autumn breeze, the cold rainy nights, freshly baked bagels and a coffee to go in the morning, the coolest stores, amazing food, brick-walled houses with backyards, vegetarian and vegan food everywhere, awesome gigs, the most beautiful parks, tree lined streets and a whole lot of love.

We got our flights booked for the October 31st, which makes 2 months and 1 day until then, and I’m an extremely happy and very anxious girl.
